Will Heather Tom ('Bold and the Beautiful') tie Erika Slezak's Daytime Emmys record?'

16 April 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Heather Tom has been a staple of daytime television for more than two decades, beginning with her star-making role on "The Young and the Restless" in the 1990s and continuing into "One Life to Live" and currently "The Bold and the Beautiful." She's the two-time defending champ for Best Drama Actress, and if she wins again this year she'll tie soap opera queen Erika Slezak as daytime's most awarded actress. -Break- Daytime Emmy pre-nominations shower 'General Hospital' and 'Young and Restless,' shun online soaps Slezak played Victoria Lord on "One Life" for 42 years, from 1971 all the way through to its ill-fated online revival in 2013.

U Q&A: Tika Sumpter On 'Ride Along,' Kevin Hart, Ice Cube, 'Gossip Girl'

14 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Tika Sumpter dished to Uinterview on working with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube in the hit comedy Ride Along, and even reminisced about her days on Gossip Girl.

Sumpter, a native New Yorker, got her start playing Layla Williamson on One Life to Live before getting a breakout role as Raina Thorpe on Gossip Girl’s fourth season. Currently, she stars in Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.

Sumpter described her co-star Kevin Hart as “a machine gun when it comes to jokes,” and told Uinterview that she spent most of her time on set laughing. In fact, Sumpter said that working on Ride Along was even more fun than one would imagine.

“It didn’t even feel like work,” Sumpter admitted, adding, “between, you know, laughing and watching those two and learning, I had a blast!”

Ride Along is now available on DVD. »

Daytime Soaps Enjoy a New Surge in Popularity

9 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The soap bubble that was supposed to burst is still very much intact.

A couple of years after “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” brought to five the number of daytime dramas axed by the networks over a five-year stretch, the genre is flourishing.

Ratings are up at the four remaining soaps — “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” on CBS, “General Hospital” on ABC and “Days of Our Lives” on NBC — and, in this DVR era, any kind of gain is cause for celebration.

One reason for the increases could be the simple fact that there are fewer shows to compete for the pool of fans. Today’s soaps live alongside game and talkshows such as CBS’ “Let’s Make a Deal” and ABC’s “The Chew,” and a bigger variety of programming for viewers to choose from seems to be helping all the networks. »

Yael Grobglas Back With CW For ‘Jane The Virgin’; Brett Dier & Andrea Navedo Also Cast

12 March 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The CW wants to stay in business with Israeli actress Yael Grobglas. The network first cast the virtual unknown last year as the lead in drama pilot The Selection, and she recently finished a six-episode arc on Reign. Now the CW has tapped Grobglas again, this time for Jane The Virgin, which also has added  Brett Dier (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid) and Andrea Navedo (One Life To Live). Based on the successful Venezuelan telenovela Juana la Virgen, Jane The Virgin centers on Jane (Gina Rodriguez), a hardworking religious girl who, due to a series of outrageous events, is accidentally artificially inseminated. Grobglas, with UTA, Thruline and attorney Jamie Feldman, will play Monica, who is left reeling when her husband’s sperm is used to inseminate the wrong girl. Dier, repped by Gersh and Red Talent Management, will play Michael, a cop and Jane’s steadfast boyfriend who has secrets of his own. »

‘All My Children’ And ‘One Life To Live’ Producer Prospect Park Networks Files For Chapter 11

10 March 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Although its multimillion-dollar legal action against ABC over seemingly shuttered licensed soaps All My Children and One Life To Live continues, Prospect Park Networks today filed for Chapter 11. The online production company made the petition for protection in federal bankruptcy court in Delaware. “Ppn is optimistic that this filing will make it possible to continue to maximize the value of its assets and settlement of past liabilities,” the company said in a statement today. “The company is optimistic about the prospects for a smooth transition into bankruptcy.” The action today leaves little room for the resurrection of All My Children and One Life To Live in their last online incarnation. After a long-awaited first season online, both soaps ceased production last August.

Daytime Emmy pre-nominations shower 'General Hospital' and 'Young and Restless,' shun online soaps

3 March 2014 2:10 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" dominated the Daytime Emmy acting pre-nominations with 19 citations apiece. "Days of Our Lives" follows with 14. "The Bold and the Beautiful" has nine. The two embattled online soaps, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," were mostly disregarded; two actors from each show were recognized in the younger acting categories (for performers under 26), but both shows were shut out of the lead and supporting races. The longlists were assembled by panels of peer judges, who watched sample performances from all entrants in each category before narrowing it down to their 10 favorites. (Because of ties, there are 12 pre-nominees for Lead Actress and 13 for Supporting Actor.) The pre-nominees now advance to the blue-ribbon round, where panels will determine the final nominees, to be announced on May 1. Best Lead Actress Sharon Case, "T »

The Art of Storytelling– Jill Soloway gets “Transparent” for Amazon Studios

28 February 2014 11:03 AM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Prior to the release of her Amazon Original pilot, Transparent, we asked creator Jill Soloway a few questions on the art of storytelling, her inspirations and the future of her new show. Read the article below.

Writer/Director/Producer Jill Soloway has always considered herself a “storyteller first and a filmmaker by necessity”.  As a child, she and her sister created and performed plays for anyone that they could get to watch.  This evolved into a drive to write and direct films and TV and to tell longer and better kinds of stories.  Her career has been a successful one, serving as a writer and producer for series such as United States of Tara and Six Feet Under - for which she was nominated for 3 primetime Emmy Awards and a WGA award.  She also took home the Best Director prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival for her feature film Afternoon Delight »

The Warriors star Roger Hill has died, aged 65

Hill passed away in New York City last Thursday (February 20), but Variety reports that a cause of death has not been disclosed.

He is survived by his son Chris W Hill, a film editor.

The actor is best known for playing the bombastic gang leader Cyrus in director Walter Hill's cult 1979 action thriller The Warriors.

He later appeared in the soap opera One Life to Live from 1983 to 1984.

Roger also appeared in The Leatherstocking Tales, American Playhouse and The Education of Sonny Carson. »

Roger Hill, Who Played Cyrus in ‘The Warriors,’ Dies at 65

25 February 2014 3:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roger Hill, who played gang leader Cyrus in Walter Hill’s 1979 cult classic “The Warriors,” died Thursday in New York. He was 65.

Hill spent nearly 20 years as an actor, working mostly in theater. He was an early participant in the Frank Silvera Writers’ Workshop and appeared in Off Broadway and touring productions of Charles Gordone’s “No Place to Be Somebody,” Ed Bullins’ “The Fabulous Miss Marie” and “Hamlet.”

But the role with which he made the biggest impression was the charismatic but doomed gang lord Cyrus in Paramount’s “The Warriors.” He also played Alec Lowndes on ABC’s “One Life to Live” from 1982-85.

In 2005 he filed a lawsuit of $250,000 against Rockstar Games for using his voice and depicting him in the videogame based on “The Warriors.”

Born and raised in New York City, Hill graduated from the City College of New York. In later years, he left »

Elaine Stritch: ‘I Didn’t Declare Retirement’

21 February 2014 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When I first see Elaine Stritch—the 89-year-old legendary stage and screen actress—she’s propped in bed. Although she’s been a New York fixture since the 1940s (and spent 18 years living in a room at the Carlyle Hotel), she recently moved to Michigan. But she’s back in town this week to promote her new documentary, “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me.” Her trip will include a screening hosted by Perez Hilton, the film’s midtown premiere and catching a Broadway show (“The Glass Menagerie”) with her pal Bernadette Peters.

On this morning, Stritch has gone viral. She just appeared on “Today,” where she dropped the F-word on live TV. The film’s director, Chiemi Karasawa, tells her that she’s trending on Twitter. “What does it mean to be trending?” Stritch asks from her room in an Upper East Side clubhouse. I tell her. “Oh.” She takes a long pause. »

ABC Fails To Trim Prospect Park Soap Suit

10 February 2014 10:19 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

 ABC  took a hit this morning in Prospect Park’s multimillion-dollar legal action over licensed soaps All My Children and One Life To Live. The network was denied its motion to strike the part of the production company’s amended complaint in which Prospect Park asked to have the license agreement for the online shows extended and payments to ABC “excused” while the nearly year-old breach of contract suit for more than $100 million moves forward. The ruling came after a 50-minute hearing in La Superior Court before Judge Robert Hess. Trial lawyer James Edward Maloney of Texas’ Andrews Kurth represented Prospect Park, while Susan Klein and Nuritsa Ksachikyan of La’s Valle Makoff were there for ABC. “Prospect Park exercised its option —  it produced an entire season of the series,” Klein argued early in the hearing. “It can’t ask the court to rewrite what the parties have negotiated.” Hess »

6 February 2014 8:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Lifetime has given a series order to "Un-Real," a dramedy that takes place behind the scenes of a reality show and is executive produced by Marti Noxon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Mad Men").

Noxon is executive producing the series alongside her co-writer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro; it's based on Shapiro's short film "Sequin Raze" (whose trailer you can see here).

"Un-Real" stars Shiri Appleby ("Girls," "Life Unexpected") as Rachel, an employee of an "Bachelor"-like dating show whose job is to goad contestants into saying and doing outrageous things that make for compelling TV. Megyn Price ("Rules of Engagement") plays her boss, the show's executive producer.

"'Un-Real' is unlike anything that exists on television today," says Rob Sharenow, Lifetime's executive vice president and general manager. "It's premium and original on every level, and we're thrilled that Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro's unique series will be Lifetime's first program produced by A+E Studios. »
