5 Things That You Didn’t Know About Jamie Campbell Bower

12 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Well, it is official. There are very few new television series pilots launched this summer that has gotten the buzz that “Will” is getting. The show is set during the Elizabethan era and focuses on a young up and coming William Shakespeare who fights to make the adjustment after arriving in London in 1589. This is a time when stage theater was equivalent to rock and roll, and Shakespeare would forever change it with the power of his words. In order to put this production together, the producers had to find young, impressionable and talented actors and actresses and the

‘Will’ Review: TNT Drama Emphasizes Shakespeare’s Hotness, But Fortunately Has Some Depth

10 July 2017 7:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Several months ago, a meme was born: The CW dramedy “Riverdale” was dubbed “Hot Archie Who Fucks” (or “Hawf,” for short) by several fans. It was a fun way of describing how the show brought an irreverent, sexually charged edge to a previously rather innocent Archie Comics icon.

Credit for the nickname is believed to go to film and TV critic Charles Bramesco.

Some personal news: I am now watching the pilot of Hot Archie Who Fucks

— Charles Bramesco (@intothecrevasse) February 23, 2017

Following on the heels of “Hawf,” the NatGeo series “Genius” soon became known as “Hot Einstein Who Fucks” – thanks to its own deliberately sexual take on the world renowned scientist and pop culture icon. (Both the younger and older versions of Einstein, played by Johnny Flynn and Geoffrey Rush, respectively, got some on screen.)

Our Staff Picks: TV Shows to Watch the Week of July 10, 2017

10 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome back to Tune In: our weekly newsletter offering a guide to the best of the week’s TV.

Each week, Variety’s TV team combs through the week’s schedule, selecting our picks of what to watch and when/how to watch them. This week, “Game of Thrones” returns for Season 7 while “The Bold Type” makes its official debut on Freeform.

The Bold Type,” Freeform, Tuesday, 9 p.m. (Critics’ Pick)

It’s of course bordering on ridiculous, how effortlessly glamorous everything around Scarlet is; the trio of leads are always dressed to the nines, as if they’ve never even heard of New York’s high rent. But Kat especially makes for a charming, bold character — and the chemistry between the girls is neither saccharine nor unbelievable. It doesn’t have the streak of darkness that Freeform’s flagship “Pretty Little Liars” does. But “The Bold Type” makes up for it with a lot of go-girl »

Will TV Review – TNT Rocks The Bard

10 July 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

TNT is daring to spin a dream, much like the titular character of its new effort, Will, and the network is hoping it can convince you that Shakespeare was a pop star of his era, as opposed to having entered the world as the boring crap High School teachers make you read. Perhaps more importantly, the show would also like you to believe that jolly, old Will was once a young man, and wasn’t born a marble bust with little hair and a fantastic beard.

These are indeed, more or less, true, but Will also wants you to: watch as Will scampers after a guttersnipe who picks his pocket, listen to The Clash, endure “punk rock” Elizabethans, and play along with anti-Catholic, anti-theater mustache-twirlers, and that makes it a little difficult to get your bearings.

Luckily, at its heart, this is a show that is mostly after simply reveling in Shakespeare. »

TV Review: ‘Will,’ TNT’s Punk Rock Take on William Shakespeare

9 July 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The oddest assumption “Will” makes is in assuming that William Shakespeare, the Og of the English language, needs the patina of punk rock to make him cool. I’m no expert on cool, but haven’t we all trod this ground many times before? The executive producer and writer of the pilot, Craig Pearce, wrote the screenplay for “Romeo + Juliet,” along with director Baz Luhrmann and, of course, the Bard himself. It’s been over 20 years since that film and “Shakespeare in Love”; about a decade since teen movies “She’s the Man” and “Deliver Us From Eva” applied the Shakespeare formula to high school. To belabor the point: Joss Whedon’s black-and-white, modern-day “Much Ado About Nothing” is just five years old, 2014’s “The Hollow Crown” on BBC cast well-known heartthrobs like Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead roles, and for pete’s sake, “The Lion King” is based on “Hamlet.”

TNT’s ‘Will’ Producer on Show’s Shakespeare Adaptation: ‘Theater Then Was Like Punk Rock’

28 June 2017 10:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Olivia DeJonge isn’t just a cast member on TNT’s new series “Will.” To hear the actress tell it, she’s also the target audience for the program, which tells the story of William Shakespeare (Laurie Davidson), an English playwright of some renown in 16th century London, before he went on to write “Hamlet” and many other classic plays.

“I wasn’t even interested in the show, I wasn’t a Shakespeare fan,” she told Variety. But executive producer Craig Pearce “changed my mind on that, and I am excited to see him change the mind of every other young person who sees Will Shakespeare as a dusty old man.”

At Tuesday night’s premiere of the series, held at New York’s Bryant Park with an after-party at the nearby Bryant Park Grill, DeJonge says she was attracted to the contemporary, rebellious energy Pearce brought to the proceedings, especially »
