Norman Lear, Itvs to Receive Peabody Awards

12 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television legend Norman Lear and the Independent Television Service (Itvs) have both been selected as recipients for this year’s Peabody Awards, Variety has learned.

The Peabody Awards, based at the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia, are reserved for individuals and institutions whose work and commitment to broadcast media define and transform the field.

Lear is well-known as a television producer and writer who helped bring racial and gender diversity to the medium, in addition to featuring characters with controversial and brash opinions. Among the hits that he worked on are “All in the Family,” “Sanford and Son,” “Maude,” “Good Times,” and “The Jeffersons.” Each show in its own way tackled sensitive issues like racial discrimination, sexism, homosexuality, abortion, and even rape.

Itvs, conceived by independent filmmakers who saw scarce diversity in public media, was formed by Congress in 1988. The service has helped fund more than 1,400 films and has received »

Fowl Play: Saying Goodbye to 'Duck Dynasty,' TV's Worst Show

29 March 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

These days it's tough to find reasons to be cheerful about the state of the nation – but an America without Duck Dynasty is a good place to start. No show in television history has ever sucked quite like this one. And if the TV gods are willing, no show ever will.

A&E's massive hit became a cultural presence in 2012 for its down-home charm – the zany adventures of a real-life Lousiana clan who kept their country manners and backwoods habits, with Phil, Miss Kay, their bearded sons and loopy Vietnam vet Uncle Si. »

5 Reasons You Should Be Watching One Day at a Time

16 March 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Netflix reboot of One Day at a Time is a true homage to its predecessor. Inspired by the single-parent family dynamic of the original, the new series replaces the Romano household of Indianapolis with the Cuban-American Alvarez family from the Echo Park section of Los Angeles. The new One Day at a Time wastes no time diving into the topical issues of today. Subjects like sexism, Ptsd, immigration, and veteran's rights are handled with honesty and finesse, while managing to mine the comic gold inherent in the moment. Binge-worthy and aspirational in its social consciousness, each episode carries a powerful message interspersed with clever humor and witty dialogue. If that's not enough, here are five more reasons you should be watching One Day at a Time. Norman Lear is a producer. The legendary talent behind classic '70s sitcoms is the creator of the original series and has returned as producer for the reboot. »

From the People Archive: Inside Nicole Kidman and Lenny Kravitz’s Love Story

16 February 2017 11:17 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nicole Kidman just revealed she was once engaged to rocker Lenny Kravitz, telling The Edit that she was quietly betrothed to the father of her Big Little Lies costar Zoë Kravitz years ago. The actress and musician dated in 2003, and People covered their under-the-radar romance in this vintage cover story below:

One thing you can say for Nicole Kidman: The woman knows how to keep a secret. Throughout the summer, the Oscar-winning actress dismissed inquiries of a romance with rocker Lenny Kravitz with “we’re-just-friends” denials. Yes, she was renting his apartment, but please don’t get the wrong idea. »

How Norman Lear and Gloria Estefan Rebooted the 'One Day at a Time' Theme Song for Netflix

24 January 2017 5:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Legendary television writer and producer Norman Lear is no stranger to the role of music in marketing, and defining, the message of his show’s central themes.

When you hear the nostalgic croon of All in the Family’s “Those Were the Days” or the catchy riff of The Jeffersons’ “Movin' On Up,” your mind almost automatically joins the song. As the worldwide audience of Lear’s work, you know the lyrics of his show’s theme songs just as well, or better, than you know his leading characters.

“Everybody knows 'Those Were the Days' and 'Movin' on Up,'" Lear tells Billboard. »

Film Review: ‘They Call Us Monsters’

20 January 2017 3:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The question of whether serious juvenile offenders should be tried as adults stands at the heart of “They Call Us Monsters,” which concerns three teenagers facing life in prison for violent crimes. While Ben Lear’s documentary is reasonably clear about its own position on the issue, the film’s material is so thin that it provides few reasons to believe the conclusion it’s selling. The same holds true for its portrait of the role art plays in rehabilitating those in need, a perfunctory thread that leaves the film feeling like merely another drop in the enormous prison-documentary bucket.

In California, violent juveniles between the ages of 14 and 17 can be sentenced as adults, and inside Sylmar Juvenile Hall’s High Security Compound in Los Angeles, high-risk kids facing grave prison terms spend their days and nights waiting to learn their fate. Director Lear (son of legendary TV producer Norman) focuses on three such individuals, »

‘Black-ish’ Takes On the Election of Donald Trump

11 January 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A year ago, “Black-ish” aired an episode that showed Rainbow and Dre Johnson talking to their children about incidents of police brutality. At the time, creator Kenya Barris said it was hard to balance the show’s aspirational tone with the difficult subject matter. Before that episode aired (to much critical acclaim, as it happened), Barris worried about whether he’d gotten that tricky mixture right.

The ABC comedy’s Jan. 11, 2017, installment was even scarier to write, says Barris. In the episode, Dre and his colleagues and family react to the election of Donald Trump — with stunned pain and confusion.

“I’m even more nervous with this one,” Barris tells Variety.

Barris locked himself away over the Thanksgiving weekend to knock out the script. For the first time, he’s both writing and directing an installment of the comedy — that’s how important this episode is to him. As is typical on “Black-ish,” the »

Not on the A-List: Donald Trump’s Sour Relationship with Hollywood

9 January 2017 11:25 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Though President-elect Donald Trump wasn’t in attendance at the 74th annual Golden Globes on Sunday, his presence was surely felt.

First, Trump was the subject of numerous jabs from host Jimmy Fallon. Then, he was the unnamed subject of a passionate speech about empathy delivered by Meryl Streep.

In response, the president-elect told The New York Times that he “wasn’t surprised” by the attack orchestrated by “liberal movie people.” Later, through some early morning tweets, Trump dubbed Streep “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”

Though the 70-year-old may now have a grudge against the industry, he »

Norman Lear on Ending His Long TV Absence With ‘One Day at a Time’

4 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the 1970s, Norman Lear reigned as TV’s most prolific and influential comedy writer and producer — the person responsible for such landmark shows as “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” “Good Times,” “Sanford and Son,” and “Maude.” This month, Lear will end his 22-year absence from series television with the premiere of “One Day at a Time,” a reboot of his classic comedy about a single mother raising two children.

His return to a TV landscape that has shifted radically in his absence could not be timelier.

Sony, which acquired rights to Lear’s library when it purchased Columbia in 1989, had long been toying with the idea of rebuilding one of Lear’s comedies around a Latino family. It was the idea of Lear’s producing partner Brent Miller to focus on “One Day at a Time,” but Lear’s involvement was never in question, even before the wheels were rolling on the project.
