'Fifty Shades of Grey' could have been an explicit TV show on Starz

1 hour ago

We could have had a super explicit Fifty Shades of Grey TV show.

Starz’ CEO Chris Albrecht told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour Friday that he lobbied Universal for the rights to the bestselling S&M book series. His pitch: A three-season TV series where each E L James novel was told over the course of a full season.

Albrecht was originally talking about his upcoming series Outlander, a romantic fantasy (with much softer sexual content than Fifty Shades). Outlander is based on a series of books by Diana Gabaldon and each season will roughly follow the »

Video: Strangers undress each other for 'Masters of Sex' ad

2 hours ago

A few months back, a video featuring strangers kissing went viral. Remember that one? Of course you do. It’s called First Kiss and it was directed by Tatia Pilieva.

Now, Pilieva is back with Undress Me. This time, she’s asking 20 strangers to undress each other (in pairs, let’s not get crazy here) as an ad for Masters of Sex, which returns to Showtime Sunday, July 13.

The video opens with a man sitting in bed saying, “It’s nerve-racking,” and then the text: “In 1957, William Masters and Virginia Johnson began asking men and women to undress for science. »

Emmy bait: Watch nominees in 25 of the year's best TV scenes

5 hours ago

While much of the talk surrounding the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominations focused on bigger-picture issues (snubs both critical and fan-enraging, the historical impact of a Simpsons omission, and so on), the year leading up to Thursday’s roll call was actually made up of many smaller flashes of brilliance on the small screen.

EW launched its 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year three weeks ago in an effort to highlight some of those moments—the most powerful, funny, touching, lusty, or sometimes just plain awkward moments over the 2013–14 season. It’s no surprise, then, that many of the »

'True Detective' season 2 casting: Colin Farrell in talks

6 hours ago

Colin Farrell could be the new star of HBO’s True Detective.

The Irish actor (Fright Night, In Bruges) has been in talks for the role. We’ve been sitting on this news waiting for the deal to close, but as another outlet broke ranks and posted, we’re joining the inevitable online chorus despite the situation still being uncertain. So keep in mind there is no deal at this time as sources say the actor has not accepted HBO’s current offer. But as of today, Farrell is definitely in the mix and considered the most likely lead name to join the acclaimed drama. »

'Big Brother': Julie Chen on first evictions of the season and game changes

7 hours ago

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Big Brother’. 

EW: Two evictions in, do you think the game changes have been effective?

Julie Chen: I absolutely think the game changes are effective. With two less people, it’s only going to get tougher to decide who the two HOHs nominate. It almost forces people to play hard or be eliminated. Plus you are going to have a lot of upset people every week with 4 nominees. Even if you win battle of the block, you are going to be »

Exclusive: Watch the extended trailer for MTV's controversial theme park dramedy 'Happyland'

8 hours ago

Back in October, MTV ordered two new comedy pilots: the pseudo-lesbian high school series Faking It, which earned a second season renewal in June, and Happyland, a soapy teen dramedy that dives into the not-so-glamorous behind-the-scenes reality of a popular theme park.

Set to premiere on September 30, Happyland stars Bianca Santos (of The Fosters) as Lucy, a cynical employee and daughter to the park’s perfect princess Elena (Camille Guaty). Desperate to escape the park’s brand of manufactured happiness, Lucy rethinks her desire to flee after the arrival of a new staff member—the son (Awkward’s Shane Harper »

'Homeland' showrunner reveals season 4 secrets

9 hours ago

Showtime’s Homeland is preparing for its most impossible mission yet: Executing a total creative overhaul for its upcoming fourth season. You already know (Spoiler Alert: if you haven’t watched season 3, stop reading) that Damian Lewis exited the espionage thriller when his traitor-ish character Nicholas Brody was hanged in the season 3 finale. Coping with the loss of the show’s leading man is difficult enough, but Homeland will use Brody’s departure to radically shake up the show in other ways, too, with a new setting (Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison is working in Pakistan and Afghanistan) and several cast additions (including Corey Stoll, »

Mike Judge on 'Silicon Valley' Emmy nods and dreams that (thankfully) don't come true

9 hours ago

Before creating Silicon Valley— the new HBO comedy that Thursday morning garnered five Emmy nominations—Mike Judge says he “hadn’t had a hit in awhile.” Specifically, he was referring to a pair of high-profile 2009 projects: the ABC animated series The Goode Family and the Jason Bateman-led feature film Extract, both of which were received unenthusiastically by audiences. Despite those hiccups, flops have been the exception rather than the rule for the creator of Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, Office Space, and Idiocracy. So when it was announced that Silicon Valley was up for Emmys in Best Comedy, »

Christine Baranski also laments that 'Good Wife' Best Drama snub

11 hours ago

The Good Wife started production on season 6 Thursday, but since Christine Baranski wasn’t on the call sheet, she distracted herself that morning with coffee and a swim as the Emmy nominations were announced. “One doesn’t want to invest too much in it, but that said, when you find out that you’ve got a nomination, it’s always a wonderful thing and a great privilege,” the 12-time nominee says. With one win for Cybill, this is her fifth consecutive nomination for The Good Wife. “I always get the biggest kick to hear I’m in a category with Maggie Smith, »

'Working the Engels' needs to get to know the Engels first

22 hours ago

About two-thirds of the way through the pilot episode of Working the Engels, Ceil Engel, the family’s matriarch, gestures toward her hardworking daughter, Jenna, and tosses off the line, “Where does she get that bossiness from?” It’s an ordinary enough punch line, and Tony winner Andrea Martin delivers it with a wry turn, but it’s hard to know where the joke is supposed to land. It seems designed to reflect back on herself, but Ceil’s more of a busybody than a boss. Everywhere else in the show, Jenna’s competence is played as a sort of »

Lisa Kudrow on 'The Comeback' revival: Could there be even more?

23 hours ago

Valerie Cherish is coming back. But could she come back yet again?

HBO’s short-order Comeback revival doesn’t air until November, yet critics are already wondering if the limited series could be the start of a full series revival. Co-creator Michael Patrick King and star Lisa Kudrow told the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday that the six episodes will have a fully contained story with a beginning, middle and end.

“Even when we did the first season, we ended like it was contained,” King said. “This felt like a very full experience…I’m not sure how we did it this time. »

Jim Parsons on Emmy nods and 'Big Bang Theory' bobbleheads: 'What the hell is going on?'

10 July 2014 4:38 PM, PDT

Jim Parsons usually advises other potential Emmy nominees to sleep in the morning of the announcement. “It’s the only way to do it,” he told EW. Except he couldn’t follow his own advice this morning—he had a 6:30 a.m. appointment, so he was up anyway.

While Parsons was reading about the Houston Rockets and drinking his coffee, he found out he that he had been nominated not only for his role as Sheldon Cooper in CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory—his sixth time being recognized for that role—but also for his role as Tommy »

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »
