‘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.

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.
