19 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

According to the Television Critics Association, it was a big year for women, people of color, dystopias and the afterlife. At least, that’s what can be gleaned from the nominees for the 2017 TCA Award nominees, announced this morning.

In terms of total nominees, FX’s “Atlanta,” Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and NBC’s “This Is Us” led the pack with four each. Following, with three nominations each, were HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” FX’s “Feud: Bette And Joan,” Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” and NBC’s “The Good Place.”

Notably, the Individual Achievement in Drama and Comedy nominees, which don’t specify gender, were dominated by women in a variety of key roles, and the only men recognized were men of color, including Sterling K. Brown, Aziz Ansari, and Donald Glover. (That’s right, MTV, the Television Critics Association has been doing gender-neutral awards for quite some time — so slow your roll. »

‘Kimmel’ Comedy Zone: Where Hollywood Late-Night Gags Are Born

12 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Since its inception in 2003, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has taped at the old Hollywood Masonic Temple on Hollywood Boulevard — now known as the El Capitan Entertainment Center, for the movie theater next door. The entire complex is owned by ABC parent the Walt Disney Co., hence the reason why only Disney films screen at the movie house. Above the movie theater are offices for the show’s staff, including head writers Molly McNearney and Danny Ricker. So if you go see “Cars 3” this summer on Hollywood Boulevard, there’s a chance that you’ll do so as Kimmel’s team sits above you, crafting the latest Matt Damon diss.

Back in Time

Among Ricker’s most prized possessions is a vinyl copy of the “Back to the Future” soundtrack signed by Huey Lewis and Michael J. Fox — sort of. “They signed the plastic cover, which is why it doesn’t look very nice in the frame, because »

Sesame Street Puts a Kid-Friendly Spin on Orange Is the New Black — Watch

6 June 2017 5:37 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you can’t wait for Orange Is the New Black to return this Friday, we might have a small snack to tide you over for a while.

Sesame Street has taken aim at the Netflix prison dramedy with a tasty new puppet-filled parody entitled Orange Is the New Snack, which you can watch above. In it, a girl named Piper Snackman is sent to Litchfield Penitentiary Academy, where she meets her new classmates like “Googly Eyes” (ha!) and a Morello clone who puts a tiny groom’s outfit on Piper’s orange and pretends it’s her boyfriend “Christopher. »

Lisa Loeb Talks Cafe Carlyle Residency, New Album

1 June 2017 2:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For some people, Lisa Loeb will eternally remain the cat-eye glasses-wearing crush they first heard in Reality Bites in 1994. But Loeb has resolutely refused to keep still in the intervening years, taking detours into film and television acting and lately, children’s music. She’s currently in New York for a residency at the famed Cafe Carlyle, and People caught up to her to see how she’s been “Stay”-ing busy. (Sorry.)

How did you get involved with the Carlyle?

I’d never imagined that I’d be going there. I’d seen Betty Buckley and people like that »

The Roots’ Black Thought Talks Picnic, Upcoming Album and Kids’ Show

19 May 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

 

No one could accuse The Roots or its principle co-founders and mouthpieces, TariqBlack Thought” Trotter and AhmirQuestlove” Thompson, of slacking.

Along with the full ensemble’s weeknightly performance as the live house band for Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show” on NBC, Trotter and Thompson started Passyunk Productions and are working on two children’s shows for Amazon Studios: one a live-action program, the other an animated kids’ show.

While Thompson busies himself with DJ gigs and authoring books such as 2015’s “Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove,” Trotter recently got into the solo entrepreneurial act with the start of his “Black Thought Presents…. Delirious” stand-up comedy events — first at the Punch Line Comedy Club in his hometown of Philadelphia, with more to follow at other Punch Line locations nationally.

However, everything will stop — for a moment anyway — on June 3 as The Roots host and perform with guests such as Pharrell Williams, Solange »

‘Twin Peaks’: 7 Damn Fine TV Homages to David Lynch’s Influential Series

17 May 2017 4:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s no secret that David Lynch’s original “Twin Peaks” series has had a lot of impact on TV series creators and directors. And while his influence can be seen in the small-town themes, quirky characters, striking visuals and sweeping, cinematic shots that are common today, some TV shows haven’t made their love known in oblique ways. Instead, they’ve paid direct homage through references and spoofs.

Animated Series Tackles Diversity Issues Impacting Young Audiences

3 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it comes to presenting diverse characters in children’s programming, the latest buzz surrounds “Sesame Street,” which for the first time in its 47-year history features a character with autism. But a closer look reveals that children’s animated shows have been leaders in addressing issues related to race, gender and disabilities. The GLAAD Media Awards this year even recognized two animated programs with nominations: Nickelodeon’s “The Loud House” and Cartoon Networks’ “Steven Universe.”

“To honor kids’ programming was a big deal,” says “The Loud House” creator Chris Savino, whose show includes an African-American boy with two dads. “We’re making headway. Hopefully in the future this will be something that doesn’t need an award.”

Nickelodeon Group president Cyma Zarghami points to the channel’s history, which long ago featured Mexican-American adventuress Dora the Explorer.

“Inclusivity and diversity have been our DNA since day one. The best way to be relevant is to mirror »

Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner Break Down the ‘Girls’ Series Finale

16 April 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This interview contains plot details for the series finale of “Girls,” which aired Sunday night.

Girls” ended tonight with “Latching,” an episode that skipped five months into the future to show us Hannah (Lena Dunham) with her newborn baby boy, Grover. In addition to a magnificent deployment of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” the episode (which is discussed further in this critical dialogue) offers up a glimpse of what growing up might look like for these characters — specifically Hannah and Marnie (Allison Williams), who are living together upstate and working on breastfeeding habits. It’s hard to imagine a more different setting from the first episode of “Girls,” which framed Hannah in a very different light. “Latching” was co-written by Dunham, Konner, and Judd Apatow, all executive producers on the show, and directed by Konner. Variety spoke to Konner and Dunham about six seasons of working together, choosing how to bid farewell to Hannah, and »

‘Girls’: Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner Explain the Series Finale and Why They Gave Hannah’s Baby That Name

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for “Girls” Season 6 Episode 10, “Latching.”]

Growing up is complicated, yet for the women of “Girls,” executive producers Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner don’t have an overworked point-of-view on the journeys of the show’s key characters.

In fact, “I feel like kind of nothing happened to [them],” Dunham recently told IndieWire about her own character, Hannah, as well as Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), Marnie (Allison Williams), and Jessa (Jemima Kirke).

“There’s never really been, on ‘Girls,’ a story that ends in complete and total satisfaction and understanding,” she said. “It’s never been our gift and it’s never really been what we’re going for — so it’s good that it’s not our gift. I remember Jenni once said in an interview — and I thought it was the funniest thing ever — someone was like, ‘How do you feel about some criticism that the show has got kind of a careening plot?’ And Jenni was like, »
