Has Netflix’s Ted Sarandos Rescued (or Ruined) Hollywood?

15 August 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a soft-spoken man, Ted Sarandos makes a lot of thunderous news. Just consider the headlines he’s generated over the last week alone with a succession of game-changing deals. The chief content officer for Netflix stole Shonda Rhimes from ABC, lured retiree David Letterman back into talk-show mode, prodded the reclusive Coen brothers into TV production and snapped up Millarworld, a comic-book empire with buzzy titles like “Jupiter’s Legacy” and “Huck.”

Netflix could conceivably rival Disney and Marvel by assembling its own superhero universe. On Aug. 9, two days after the announcement of the Millarworld purchase, Disney dropped a bombshell when it unveiled plans to launch a streaming service and yank its branded family and Pixar films from Netflix beginning in 2019.

Why Bob Newhart Wanted to ‘Intentionally’ Break Boundaries in Television

9 August 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Sept. 16, 1972, CBS premiered the beloved sitcom “The Bob Newhart Show,” starring the popular comic as Chicago psychologist Dr. Bob Hartley.

The funny and whip smart sitcom only received four Emmy nominations during its six seasons. But Tuesday evening at the Wolf Theatre in North Hollywood, the TV Academy paid homage to the show —which is celebrating its 45th anniversary — with a sparkling and hilarious conversation between 88-year-old Bob Newhart and Conan O’Brien.

“I’m so glad about tonight,” proclaimed Newhart on the academy’s recognition of the series’ milestone anniversary.

O’Brien, who had worked with Newhart on a comedy bit at the 2006 Emmy Awards, said he grew up watching “The Bob Newhart Show” on Saturday nights after “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and before “The Carol Burnett Show” with his brothers and father.

Peter Bonerz joined Newhart and O’Brien about an hour into the 90-minute tribute. “You »

Amazon Snags Lucille Ball Biopic Starring Cate Blanchett

7 August 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Lucille Ball in “I Love Lucy

Looks like the long-gestating Lucille Ball biopic is finally happening. The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the untitled film about comedy legend Ball has landed at Amazon and Oscar winner Cate Blanchett is in talks to star. Aaron Sorkin (“Steve Jobs,” “The Social Network”) penned the script. A director isn’t attached yet.

Ball is best known for portraying the titular character on the classic sitcom “I Love Lucy,” on which she starred and produced with her then-husband, Desi Arnaz. The couple formed Desilu Productions in 1950, which developed shows like “I Love Lucy,” other Ball vehicles including “The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour” and “The Lucy Show,” and renowned series “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “The Andy Griffith Show,” and “That Girl.”

The iconic actress is also known for her film work, including starring roles in “The Facts of Life,” “Yours, Mine and Ours,” and “Mame.”

Throughout her career Ball collected four Emmy wins (from 13 nods), the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Lifetime Achievement Award at the American Comedy Awards, the Television Critics Association’s Career Achievement Award, and the Women in Film Crystal Award. Women in Film eventually renamed their awards ceremony to the Crystal + Lucy Awards in honor of Ball. The Lucy is given to women with outstanding achievement in TV.

Ball and Arnaz’s children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz, Jr., are producing the authorized Ball biopic with Escape Artists’ Jenna Block.

Blanchett has received six Academy Award nominations and won for her turns in “The Aviator” and “Blue Jasmine.” You can catch her in theaters now as 13 different personas in “Manifesto.” “Ocean’s Eight,” the all-female “Ocean’s 11” reboot co-starring Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, and Rihanna, and the film adaptation of Maria Semple’s bestseller “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” are among her upcoming projects.

Jessica Chastain stars in Sorkin’s next project, “Molly’s Game.” Based on Molly Bloom’s memoir, the film follows Bloom as she switches gears from Olympic skiing to developing a high-stakes, FBI-bait poker game. Sorkin wrote and directed the biopic, which hits theaters November 22.

Amazon Snags Lucille Ball Biopic Starring Cate Blanchett was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Remembering Mary Tyler Moore: Not Only ‘Brilliantly Funny,’ but Vulnerable

31 January 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

About halfway through the seven-season run of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” a week came when Moore had to spend a few days in the hospital for a minor procedure.

Work on the CBS comedy continued Monday through Thursday, with co-star Betty White subbing for Moore during the table read, script revisions, and blocking. By Friday, Moore was back on the CBS Radford lot for the final run-through and taping — and she nailed every line and set-up with ease.

“She was perfect,” recalls Jay Sandrich, who directed 119 of the 168 episodes of “Mary Tyler Moore” during its 1970-77 run.

Sandrich says his memory of that week came back to him as he grappled with the news of her death Jan. 25 at the age of 80.

The depth of Moore’s understanding of her TV alter-ego, the plucky Mary Richards, was a gift to everyone who worked on the show. “Everybody loved her,” Sandrich »

Mindy Newell: Utopia, Dystopia, Death…and Riverdale

30 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Sir John Hurt died a few days ago. One of Great Britain’s finest actors, his rise started with his turn as Robert Rich, a courtier and lawyer in Henry VIII’s court, in Fred Zimmerman’s A Man for All Seasons. The movie, based upon Robert Bolt’s play about the fall of, British Lord Chancellor Thomas More, could be considered a science fiction story as it deals with a perfectly harmonious island society that was nowhere to be found in More’s 16th century – or in the 21st, for that matter.

Sir John, in his long and brilliant career, was no stranger to our brand of cultural pop geekdom. Besides his outstanding turn as the War Doctor on the 50th anniversary special Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor – he recreated the War Doctor on four sets of audio plays for Big Finish; three are already out, »
