They may be two of this season’s “It” showrunners, but Jill Soloway and Jennie Snyder Urman aren’t exactly overnight successes. They’ve both paid their dues with staff jobs (Soloway on “Six Feet Under,” Urman on “Gilmore Girls”) and showrunner gigs (Soloway on HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” Urman on the CW’s “Emily Owens, M.D.”). Soloway’s “Transparent” has put Amazon originals on the map, winning Golden Globes for best comedy and lead Jeffrey Tambor, while Urman’s “Jane the Virgin” earned CW its first Globe noms, and scored a win for breakout star Gina Rodriguez. In a wide-ranging conversation with Variety they discuss the challenges of binge-viewing vs. 22-episode seasons, blending comedy with drama, and Caitlyn Jenner.

Karai's origins are never alluded to in the first movie, but there have been several variations of them over the years. In classic Tmnt lore she's depicted as being either the daughter or granddaughter of Shredder, but in the new animated series for example, she's is actually Splinter's daughter, who's stolen and raised by Shredder to believe that the Turtles' sensei is the one responsible for the death of her mother. Ishibashi most recently appeared in TV shows such as Grace And Frankie, Bones and Emily Owens, M.D., as well as features Everything Before Us and The Harvesting. The actress joins Gary Anthony Williams, Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Stephen Amell, Tyler Perry, Laura Linney and Brian Tee in the »

Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.
"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »

CBS has ordered drama pilot “Lfe,” the net’s second medical project in contention this cycle.
“Lfe” comes from CBS Television Studios and exec producer Dan Jinks (“Emily Owens, M.D.”) and co-exec producer Paul Downs Colaizzo, who penned the pilot. The drama is described as a high-octane medical procedural following second-year residents at the top hospital in New York City as they attempt to balance their “god complexes” with their humanity.
Earlier this week, the Eye ordered the ER-set “Code Black,” based on a docu feature, to pilot.
CBS Entertainment chair Nina Tassler has expressed her interest in bringing a medical drama to the Eye’s slate, which hasn’t had a successful series in the genre in many seasons.
