Grey's Anatomy Admits The Americans' Annet Mahendru

21 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The AmericansAnnet Mahendru apparently had a little layover in Seattle on her way back to Russia.

The actress, whose Kgb agent, Nina, was sent back to the Motherland in the FX drama’s Season 2 finale, will turn up in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy this fall, TVLine has confirmed.

Mahendru broke the news of her Grey’s gig on Twitter, but gave no hint about her character. (Given that it’s a one-off, it stands to reason she’ll be playing a patient, or a relative of a patient. »

How the 'Masters of Sex' costume designer brought the show into the '60s

21 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Masters of Sex has reached the ’60s. Over the course of “Asterion,” the seventh episode of the show’s second season, the setting jumped between 1958 and 1960. That posed a challenge for costume designer Ane Crabtree, who had to reflect the changing of the times in the characters’ garb. In fact, director Michael Dinner showed people quite literally “walking through time,” explained Crabtree. As Annaleigh Ashford’s character Betty Dimello, now working for the sex researchers, led guests through the lobby of Masters and Johnson’s new office building, both the outfits and the years changed. “I watched it twice because »

TV Review: ‘My Friends Call Me Johnny’

33 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Since its rebranding, Esquire is hardly the highest-profile network around, but it’s making a pretty strong bid to be one of the more obnoxious. Pushing a jet-setting lifestyle, the channel and movie producer Joel Silver have turned to Jean “Johnny” Pigozzi, an investor in high-tech firms — born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth — who has parlayed that into friendships with famous people. Their casual conversations provide the foundation for “My Friends Call Me Johnny,” but other than eliciting boorishness from the likes of director Brett Ratner and American Apparel’s ousted CEO Dov Charney, seldom has a half-hour felt this long.

Pigozzi describes his outlook on life as follows: “Never go to the office before 12. Business can be fun. And women like to have sex.” Setting the third aside, the first two would fall squarely into the “Nice work if you can get it” column.

EW’s 'Walking Dead' cover photographer reveals how to kill a zombie

1 hour ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

How do you kill a zombie? If you were to break it down, shot-by-shot, what would it look like? Dylan Coulter photographed The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, and Lauren Cohan on July 13 in Atlanta for Entertainment Weekly. Using multiple-exposure, Coulter answered those questions.

He began by taking separate photographs at separate exposures. In post-production, he put them together, overlapping images very selectively. There, he toyed with transparency, lightness, and darkness, emphasizing and de-emphasizing layers at his discretion. Coulter’s photographs resulted in four separate covers for each character, with Yeun and Cohan sharing a cover. »

Ask Matt: Emmys, Longmire, Summer TV (Leftovers, Outlander, Strain),Doctor Who

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: You are probably going to get a lot of angry email about how Orange Is the New Black and True Detective didn't win any of the major Emmys. But I think they may have suffered from submitting in the wrong category, and some of the voters probably didn't want to get more viewers angry after letting both Oitnb and True Detective submit in the wrong categories. So glad for Julianna Margulies' win for The Good Wife and Jim Parsons' win for The Big Bang Theory. But the biggest shock for me is Sherlock's three wins, couldn't be any happier. Which win/snub shocked you, and do you think Oitnb and True Detective could have won more awards if they had submitted in the proper categories? — Aadil

'The Walking Dead' stars Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan talk Glenn and Maggie

1 hour ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Glenn and Maggie spent a good chunk of last season of The Walking Dead trying to find each other. They finally did! Annnnnnnd then they promptly got captured at Terminus. Well, that kind of sucks.

So that begs the question: Are Glenn and Maggie better off being safe but separate, or trapped together? And when a question begs, we ask it, so ask it we did of the actors who play Glenn and Maggie — Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan. Which scenario would Glenn and Maggie prefer? “That a good question,” said Cohan while taking a break from her EW Walking Dead cover shoot. »

'Orange Is the New Black' star Laverne Cox to appear on 'Faking It'

1 hour ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Laverne Cox will guest star in an upcoming season-two episode of MTV’s Faking It, EW has learned exclusively.

The Emmy-nominated Orange Is the New Black star will play Margot, a Hester High alum and the director of the school’s elite drama club. Demanding, intense, and full of herself, Margot is a big fish in a small pond—in her mind, at least. While holding auditions for the drama club, Margot puts hopefuls through a ghastly series of exercises, all designed to strip them down to their cores.

Grey's Anatomy Video: Shonda Rhimes Reflects on Show's No. 1 Love Story

1 hour ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

At the close of Grey’s Anatomy Season 10, series creator Shonda Rhimes threw her biggest curveball yet at the top-rated ABC drama’s primary pairing.

As Rhimes relates in the above clip from the “Beautiful Relationship” featurette on the Season 10 DVD set (out today), Grey’s “has never been about a boy,” McDreamy or otherwise. Rather, its central love story has been that between Meredith Grey (played by Ellen Pompeo) and her “person,” Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), who famously bid Seattle adieu in last May’s season finale.

HBO Asia Finalizes Multi-Platform Launch for ‘Grace’

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hong Kong – HBO Asia will next month air “Grace,” its second original series made in the region.

The four-part horror mini-series stars Russell Wong (“Romeo Must Die,” “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”) and Pamelyn Chee (“Serangoon Road”) in a contemporary tale of a man who is an unfaithful but loving husband, and whose dirty secret threatens all around him.

HBO says the series, directed by Australia’s Tony Tilse, relies on the psychology of fear, and “takes a western approach towards the horror conventions of Asia, blending aspects of Asian supernatural mythology and traditions in the context of modern real-life scenarios.”

First broadcasts will be on Friday Oct. 17, with the two-part finale finishing on Halloween (Oct. 31). Episodes will also play on HBO Go one hour after broadcast and on HBO On Demand the Monday after.

Weinsteins Board Dustin Hoffman Starrer ‘Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot’

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — The Weinstein Company has taken all non-theatrical rights in the U.S. to Red Arrow Intl.’s “Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot,” which stars Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench.

Dearbhla Walsh (“Little Dorrit”) directed the 90-minute film, which was commissioned by the BBC and produced by Hilary Bevan Jones (“The Girl in the Café”) at Red Arrow’s Endor Prods.

Richard Curtis (“Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Love Actually”) and Paul Mayhew-Archer (“The Vicar of Dibley”) adapted Roald Dahl’s story, which centers on Mr. Hoppy (Hoffman) and his ingenious plot to win the heart of his neighbor, Mrs. Silver (Dench), involving a cryptic riddle and more than a hundred tortoises.

TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein commented: “Roald Dahl is one of the most revered children’s authors in history, so needless to say we’re delighted to be on board with this project. Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench will »

TV Review: ‘The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story’

8 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

So it turns out “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” is really just Lifetime for “Sharknado.” The network opted not to screen the movie in advance, presumably assuming the nostalgia/live-tweeting factor would only be undermined by the realization this wasn’t so much a movie as a music montage interrupted by reenactments from a mediocre but improbably long-running ‘90s Saturday-morning show. Told primarily from the perspective of Dustin Diamond (who doubles as a producer), the project explores the age-old insecurities of young actors and challenges of sudden stardom, but in such a tedious, empty way the bell couldn’t come soon enough.

Diamond’s memoir about the show (which he later disavowed) was said to have provided only partial inspiration for this account, but since Diamond (as played by Sam Kindseth) narrates the movie, periodically breaks the fourth wall to address the camera and generally guides us through this not-so-magical history tour, »

100 things that apparently happened, as told by 'The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story'

9 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On Monday, September 1, Lifetime ushered in a new generation of unauthorized biopics with its behind the scenes look at what really happened on the 1990s hit Saved by the Bell. The cast has largely disavowed themselves from the project and/or Dustin Diamond’s scandalous memoir Behind the Bell, and considering that the movie is based on that biography, it’s safe to say most of the things that happened in this movie didn’t really happen that way at all.

But still, we watch. We learn. We cringe. We tweet.

On Monday’s Under the Dome, a whole lot of elements that we haven’t seen in weeks came back into play.

And I’m not just talking about Barbie, Sam, Hunter and Pauline returning from Zenith. No, our latest hour in Chester’s Mill also featured the first Disaster of the Week in a while, a brand spankin’ new premonition from Pauline and — most bittersweet of all — the brief return of Angie.

8 Things We Learned From Lifetime's Insanely Bizarre Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story

10 hours ago | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Lifetime went behind the Bell on Monday and unveiled what (allegedly) happened behind the cameras of our favorite childhood sitcom. But instead of Zack Morris running the show, this time it was all about Screech — and the story from outcast Dustin Diamond's perspective.

The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, based on Diamond's tell-all memoir, began with the gang -- Dylan Everett as Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Sam Kindseth as Diamond, Tiera Skovbye as Elizabeth Berkley, Julian Works as Mario Lopez, Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, and Taylor Russell McKenzie as Lark Voorhies — pulling up to their first mall tour unaware their lives were about to change.

Her long white gown flutters in the Pacific Ocean breeze.
