8 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Wednesday morning, the cast of “Girls” — Lena Dunham, Allison WilliamsJemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet — released a PSA calling for action against sexual assault following the sentencing of Brock Turner, the Standard University athlete convicted of the 2015 rape of an unconscious woman.

Dunham posted the video to her Twitter account, dedicating it to “the brave survivor in the Stanford case who has given so much to change the conversation.”

“We may star on ‘Girls’ together, but that doesn’t mean we always agree,” Kirke said. “But there is one issue on which we are in total agreement.”

The cast then shared statistics about sexual assault, stating that “one in five women will be sexually assaulted during her lifetime,” and questioned “why is our default reaction, as a society, to disbelieve.”

“Don’t avoid the hard conversation,” Williams said. “You already have the power to create a safer, healthier environment for women to come forward. »

8 June 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy voters love Allison Janney, who already has a total of six statuettes for her work on three different shows — “The West Wing,” “Mom” and “Masters of Sex.” Janney looks to be a sure thing to land a third consecutive nomination for her work on “Mom” this year, having won the last two years in a row.

Can anyone overtake Janney? Perhaps previous winner Julie Bowen, who continues to score nominations even when other “Modern Family” co-stars have dropped off the list. If there’s a surge of love for the former champ, her co-star Sofia Vergara could also score another nomination.

There are plenty of previous nominees who have yet to win, including Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”), Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”), Gaby Hoffmann (“Transparent”), Jane Krakowski (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Niecy Nash (“Getting On”). Hoffmann’s co-stars Judith Light and Amy Landecker also had standout years, while HBO »

We are sending love to his family and friends and feeling such gratitude for his gifts. Rip sweet Nick.”

Jenni Konner on Her ‘Girls’ Directing Debut, the ‘Taxi Driver’-Inspired Last Shot

18 April 2016 5:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sunday night’s season five finale of “Girls” confirmed two already widely suspected truths: that Lena Dunham is an artistic prodigy who is able to convey and compartmentalize the nuance and angst of womanhood better than most writers and television series creators twice her age, and Jenni Konner, executive producer and writer of “Girls” and Dunham’s partner since the show’s creation, has now officially emerged as a heavily skilled director.

For Konner, who had zero directing experience prior to taking the reins on Sunday’s episode, ironically titled “I Love You Baby,” the impulse to add to her resume of producing and writing duties stemmed from being surrounded by the ever-inspiring and always supporting “Girls” cast and crew.

“I had been sitting next to the most talented people in the world for five years and watching them do their job and I really wanted an opportunity to direct the show before it ended, »

Girls: Season Five Ratings

12 April 2016 7:13 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

We already know that the Girls TV show will be ending with season six (according to series creator Lena Dunham) so there's really no chance of the HBO drama being cancelled any longer. The show has historically never done very well in the ratings but, what if the numbers rise a lot this season? Could HBO possibly convince Dunham to make a seventh season after all? It seems unlikely but you never know. Stay tuned.

Girls revolves around a group of twenty-somethings who live in Brooklyn and are figuring out how to make their way in the world. The series stars Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Adam DriverAlex Karpovsky, Andrew Rannells, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.

21 March 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For those of you genre fans out there always on the lookout for interesting horror and sci-fi films to enjoy from the comfort of your own home, March’s VOD selections feature several great indie movies that should make for some entertaining viewings this month.

Ava’s Possessions, a film I really dug out of last year’s SXSW Film Festival, is finally making its way onto VOD this Friday and Emelie, the babysitter thriller from Dark Sky Films, is also getting a digital release that day. Other titles arriving on VOD in early March include The Wave, Road Games and Camino.

The month’s VOD titles are being capped off by a film that I’ve been excited to see for some time, Baskin, which is being released by IFC Midnight on March 25th. Other notable VOD titles for March include Dudes & Dragons, You’re Killing Me, A Haunting »

'Girls' is Back, and Trolling the Trolls

25 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

HBO's “Girls” returned for its fifth and penultimate season on Sunday, and there is a telling moment between Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Hannah (creator Lena Dunham) in one of the early, upcoming episodes: Jessa: You’re going to wake up one day and realize you wasted your entire life on dumb websites. Hannah: You’re too late. That already happened. Jessa: Your brain is rotting. You used to have interesting ideas, and now all you do is browse the Internet. Maybe that’s why you stopped writing. This is obviously not the case with Dunham, whose HBO show continues to be a unique, feminist, unapologetically bawdy comedy. I read this as a pointed remark about the psychological toll the Internet, and its rabbit-hole of hate, can take on a person who lets herself get sucked into it. I found myself wondering if it was a reference to what happened with Dunham offscreen last fall, »

Girls Review: A Wedding You'll Want to Attend ... from Afar

21 February 2016 7:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The young women of Girls are finally growing up - but not necessarily together. Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) have spent their 20s (a.k.a. the past four seasons) trying hard to become independent women, but they are at their most entertaining when forced back together to deal with their past relationships.So Marnie's wedding to her musician boyfriend Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) serves as an ideal setting to kick off Girls' fifth (and second-to-last) season. "This is like a rom-com that even I wouldn't want to watch," Hannah tells her »

When the Girls Cast Competes With Each Other, Everybody Wins

Viewers are always in for a treat when the women of Girls leave the skyscrapers and apartments of New York City behind and head to places where the gray pavement has been replaced by lush lawns, and that's exactly how season five of the HBO series kicks off. Hannah (Lena Dunham), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and the boys head upstate for Marnie's (Allison Williams) wedding—bringing the whole cast together, which doesn't happen all that often on the show.

Review: 'Girls' hits some bumps on the road to growing up

18 February 2016 7:26 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When HBO announced last month that Girls would end after its sixth season, that seemed about right. Some TV shows are built to run forever, because they have a premise and/or characters who transcend the particular moment in their story in which the show began. Louie (a show that was a big influence on Girls) is on an indefinite hiatus, but is an elastic enough idea that the head of FX recently suggested Louis C.K. could return to it periodically in his 50s, 60s, and 70s. Rumors persist that NBC will revive the original Law & Order at some point, and Sam Waterston has at least another decade of self-righteous reactions in him. Girls, though, is about a very specific time in the lives of its four title characters, and about telling their stories in a very specific — and, always, polarizing — way. Lena Dunham and company have presented the early-mid »
