Emmy Fyc: Difficult People, Season Two

22 June 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Spencer Coile 

Emmy season is a treacherous time. With so many scrambling to campaign for their favorites, it is incredibly easy to get lost in the mix of all the names and shows being talked about. Difficult People, however, is not  a show that should merely be talked about. Much like its leading characters, it requires heavy shouting. 

Wannabe actor/comedians and best friends Billy and Julie (played by Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner respectively) are two of the most wretched, vile, and selfish people to hit the televisual landscape in recent years. They attempt to cloy and scratch their way to the top. Season two of Difficult People is practically breathtaking in how quickly paced it is, and it should also go without saying that it is utterly hilarious...  »

Seth Rogen Gets ‘Inception’-ed, Carrie Coon Loves the Public Theater — The Week in Showrunner Tweets

18 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One fascinating aspect of today’s media landscape is that many creators and executive producers enjoy using Twitter to engage with their audiences, share behind-the-scenes information about their shows, chat about politics, and otherwise communicate about what matters to them. So, each week, we’ll compile some of our favorite exchanges representing the wide variety of discourse seen on social media.

Last Week’S Tweets: Who ‘Mr. Robot’ Is Really Attacking, And R.I.P. ‘The Get Down

This week: Bryan Fuller watches “Twin Peaks,” and showrunners love “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

We Would Watch The Crap Out of This

Think big, Hollywood, and listen to Shonda Rhimes’ casting suggestion here.

Obvious: only actor who could play Comey and do him justice?

"Lordy, I hope there are tapes," says Denzel Washington. Bam. Academy Award.

TVLine Podcast: Dream Emmy Nominee Julie Klausner on Difficult's People's 'Curious' Obsession With Kevin Spacey

14 June 2017 8:41 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kevin Spacey might want to take cover: Season 3 of Hulu’s merciless Difficult People isn’t about to quit spanking the butt of so many of its jokes. How could it? As series creator/leading lady Julie Klausner puts it, if New York City was the fifth girl on Girls, Spacey is “the No. 1 girl on our show. [So] it would be foolish not to acknowledge his importance to the Difficult-iverse.”

Handmaid's Tale Finale Recap: 'They Should Never Have Given Us Uniforms If They Didn't Want Us to Be an Army'

14 June 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous The Handmaid’s Tale recap here. 

A few episodes ago, I wondered whether or not The Handmaid’s Tale‘s Serena had any inkling that her husband had designs on the non-uterine parts of their live-in, state-sanctioned sex slave.

This week, my query is answered with a ringing slap to the face, followed by some peeing on a stick. (And yes, the sequence is just as jarring as it sounds.) And then stuff gets really real.

There’s a revelation in the first half of the episode that makes me gasp aloud. »

Comey Testimony: TV Showrunners Explain Why This Was an Episode Open to Interpretation

8 June 2017 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As with many steps in the unfolding FBI saga, former bureau director James Comey’s Senate hearing Thursday had frequently been compared to a piece of scripted drama. After the public portion of the hearing had concluded, it lacked the definitive, certain amount of finality that some had hoped may magically appear.

So, with another chapter closed in the continuing political quagmire that the ongoing investigation presents, some of the people charged with making scripted TV themselves took to Twitter to comment on the Comey hearing as it unfolded. The result was a group that, like the American public and global audience as a whole, each took away a different lesson from what many were anticipating as an important TV event in the early summer.

Summer TV Preview: 20 New and Returning Comedies Worth Watching

6 June 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Television used to take a breather during the summer, letting audiences focus instead on intermittent relaxation, sun-drenched weekends, various fruit-based drinks and more life beyond the screen.

But there’s no such thing as summer vacation any more in TV land. Not only are plenty of spring series continuing into the summer (or even the fall, in the case of “Twin Peaks”), but the broadcast and cable networks, plus the streaming services, have a jam-packed lineup of new shows waiting in the wings.

In other words, put away your swimsuit. You won’t be needing it — there’s too much to watch. As part of IndieWire’s annual tradition to highlight the best of what television has to offer in the summer months, our team has lined up highlights of the best new and returning programs. Crank up the AC, pull down the blinds and dig in.

Emmy Contenders 2017: Lead Actress in a Comedy

1 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus set a record last year when she won her fifth consecutive Emmy for playing the titular “Veep,” and is a lock for a sixth nomination (if not a win) this year. Only three other former nominees are eligible this year: Tracee Ellis Ross, coming off a Golden Globe win for “Black-ish”; Ellie Kemper, always upbeat on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”; and Lily Tomlin, a beloved performer, for “Grace and Frankie.” Tomlin’s co-star, two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda, shouldn’t be counted out of the running, particularly following a third season that may heralded as the show’s best yet. Also returning to some of the best reviews of her career was Lena Dunham for the final season of “Girls.” Throwing an interesting twist into the mix is Allison Janney’s choice to move from supporting to lead for “Mom,” a role that has already won her two trophies.

Billy Eichner: Lgbt Stories Need to Dig Deeper (Guest Column)

30 May 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We have seen a ton of progress on television. If you compare things to when I was a kid, things have drastically changed. Thankfully, I get to take advantage of that. I’m on multiple shows this year of all different genres from “Billy on the Street” and “Difficult People” and “Friends From College” to “American Horror Story” and “Bob’s Burgers” and other things. The great thing

is that’s not that unusual.

When it comes to film, it seems like movie studios have a lot of work to do. We had “Moonlight” this year, which is proof that a tiny movie about not only a gay man, but a gay man of color, can win the Academy Award for best picture over a lot of more high-profile films.

Made in NY Writers Room Program Unveils Fellows, Showrunner Mentors

25 May 2017 5:53 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The WGA East and several New York City agencies have set the inaugural group of fellows for its Made in NY Writers Room initiative designed to help open doors for aspiring writers from diverse backgrounds.

After the program was unveiled last fall, the guild and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (Mome) and other agencies were flooded with nearly 500 script submissions. All of those submissions received feedback notes from the WGA East member. Another 170 received a second round of notes. A total of 30 finalists were selected, and the 12 fellows were chosen from that pool.

The fellows comprise 11 individuals and one writing team. They will earn a $15,000 stipend for taking part in the six-month fellowship that will include mentoring sessions, networking and professional development opportunities. The program is part of a broader push by Mome to create more talent-nurturing activities to capitalize in the spike in production in the state.
