Former Actress Heather Kerr Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Forcing Himself on Her

20 October 2017 12:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Heather Kerr is the latest actress to come forward and accuse disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.

Kerr, in a news conference with high-profile attorney Gloria Allred, asserted Friday that Weinstein had exposed himself to her and forced himself on her sexually in a private meeting in 1989.

“He asked me if I was good,” Kerr said. “I started to tell him about my training and acting experience and he said, ‘No. I need to know if you’re good.’ He said if he was going to introduce me around town, he needed to know if I was ‘good.’ He kept repeating that word.”

Kerr, who appeared on the shows “The Facts of Life” and “Mama’s Family,” said, while she was sitting on a couch with Weinstein, he unzipped his pants, pulled out his penis, grabbed her hand, forced it onto his organ, and held it there.

“He said this is how things work in Hollywood »

Pamela Adlon Reveals How Louis C.K. Gave Her the Confidence to Write and Direct ‘Better Things’

28 September 2017 2:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Anyone who watched “Louie” knows that Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon share an infinitely watchable rapport onscreen. Playing fictionalized versions of themselves in the Emmy-nominated FX show, their real-life friendship infused their characters with a warm naturalism that made “Louie” unlike any other show on television. It comes as no surprise then that “Better Things” shares the same naturalism; Adlon was a writer/producer on “Louie” and C.K. is an executive producer on “Better Things.” C.K. was instrumental in getting the show greenlit, pitching an Adlon show to FX president John Landgraf.

Former collaborator Tig Notaro recently disavowed C.K.’s involvement in her Amazon series, “One Mississippi,” even though he is credited as an executive producer. As unseemly rumors continue to surround the comedian and filmmaker, his fruitful collaboration with Adlon of a woman filmmaker who has benefitted greatly from C.K.’s support — and that’s all according to Adlon. »

The 20 Best TV Spin-off Series of All Time, Ranked

27 September 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The early success of CBS’ new “The Big Bang Theory” prequel “Young Sheldon” is a reminder that often the most successful spin-offs look or feel completely different from their mother ship. “The Simpsons” was nothing like “The Tracey Ullman Show.” “Mork and Mindy” was set in a different time frame than “Happy Days.” And “Maude,” “The Jeffersons” and “Good Times” featured characters with a completely different mindset from “All in the Family’s” Archie Bunker.

Try as TV executives and creators might, it’s nearly impossible to replicate success in the same world or with many of the same characters. (Looking at you, “Joey” and “AfterMASH.”) Some of the best TV spinoffs succeed specifically because they approach a familiar template from a completely different angle. Spin-offs come in many forms: Some are continuations of series that have ended. Others follow popular characters on their own journeys. And some are simply planted into a hit show, »

Homeland is restocking its ensemble before diving into another season of high-stakes spy games: The Emmy-winning thriller has added two actors to its Season 7 cast, TVLine has learned.

First up is Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire, Person of Interest), who will be a series regular in Season 7 as Dante Allen, an old friend of Carrie’s who is looking into the hundreds of people President Keane has detained following last season’s assassination attempt.

Pamela Adlon on 'Better Things,' Single Mom Guilt and Feeling 'Like a Dude'

"You want a glass of Burgundy?" Pamela Adlon asks, encouragingly, as she sits down in a ritzy Beverly Hills restaurant. The multi-hyphenate force behind FX's Better Things then gestures to her full face of makeup, which has been professionally applied for a photo shoot: "By the way, this is not me." She catches a glimpse of her smoky eyes in a nearby mirror, she yanks out a few fake lashes. When the beverages arrive in giant goblets that make the pours look a little stingy, she offers a polite thanks. »

Queen Latifah in “Bessie”: HBO

The final episode of “Living Single” aired nearly two decades ago, but according to Queen Latifah, a reboot of the beloved sitcom may be on the way. The Oscar nominee spilled some details during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” Essence reports.

When a caller asked if there was any chance the show could ever return, Latifah confirmed, “We’re actually working on it.” She explained, “It’s not there yet, but hopefully we can get it happening.” She said she’ll be a producer on the project and hopes to reassemble the original cast.

Created by Yvette Lee Bowser (“Black-ish”), “Living Single” followed the lives of six friends living in a Brooklyn brownstone and ran for five seasons on Fox from 1993 to 1998. The cast also included Kim Coles (“In Living Color”), Erika Alexander (“The Cosby Show”), and Kim Fields (“The Facts of Life”).

Latifah’s recent credits include “Girls Trip,” “Bessie,” and “Miracles from Heaven.” She earned an Oscar nod for “Chicago” in 2002. She serves on the Board of Directors for We Do It Together, a collective formed to finance and produce films, documentaries, TV, and other media working towards the goal of empowering women.

28 April 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Charlotte Rae reveals she's been diagnosed with bone cancer, seven years after battling pancreatic cancer.

"Last Monday, I found out I have bone cancer," the 91-year-old actress, who played Edna Garrett on Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life, tells People.

After six months of chemotherapy, I was cancer-free. I lost my hair, but I had beautiful wigs. Nobody even knew."
