NBC’s “Blindspot” has already seen plenty of casualties in Season 1 so far, but one of the cruelest early deaths was the loss of Patterson’s (Ashley Johnson) boyfriend David (Joe Dinicol), who was killed back in Episode 9.
That loss is still keenly felt in Episode 16, “Any Wounded Thief,” and in Variety’s exclusive sneak peek at the new installment, we see Patterson struggling to move on following an unexpected phone call. Thankfully, Dr. Borden (Ukweli Roach) is on hand to offer some wisdom, free of charge.
Elsewhere in the episode, airing April 4, after an armored truck is robbed, the team discovers that the stolen goods are chemical weapons and they must race to thwart a terrorist plot. Meanwhile, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) grapples with a confusing memory of Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) — while growing even closer to Oscar (guest star Francois Arnaud). The series also stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Rob Brown and Audrey Esparza. »

The messy lives of young aspiring writers and the dysfunctional families that spawned them have long provided fertile if inevitably over-tilled material for many an independent filmmaker. If “Jean of the Joneses” feels fresher than most multigenerational ensemble dramedies, credit not only the relative novelty of an all-black, mostly female cast, but also writer-director Stella Meghie’s talent for suggesting the invisible bonds that unite her characters, despite their many disagreements and (in some cases) general disagreeability. Inspired by her own family life though not strictly autobiographical, Meghie’s endearingly acerbic debut feature is a work of modest ambition and commercial outlook, but that modesty proves intrinsic to its appeal, which deserves to be discovered at more stops along the festival circuit following its SXSW premiere.
Jean Jones (Taylour Paige), the 25-year-old Jamaican-American woman who lends the film its playfully arch title, has been hailed in some literary circles as »

New York is about to play host to yet another love story, but this time it isn’t Woody Allen dreaming up a love letter to the Big Apple; instead, Rebecca Hall and Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens have been cast in Permission, a romantic comedy written and directed by Brian Crano.
Production is already underway on the film, which set up shop at Brooklyn before the turn of the year. That would place Crano’s feature film on course for a release in late 2016, though a firm release date wasn’t disclosed at the time of writing.
In light of today’s announcement, Hall and Stevens join a starry ensemble that already includes Gina Gershon, Francois Arnaud, Morgan Spector, Bridget Everett, David Joseph Craig, Sarah Steele and Horrible Bosses and Angry Birds star Jason Sudeikis. Placed at the crux of the story, Permission sees Hall and Stevens play a »
