Inside the Office of ‘Homeland’ Boss Alex Gansa

10 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the executive producer of Showtime’s Emmy-winning “Homeland,” Alex Gansa has a more formal office on the Fox lot. But when it comes to getting the real work of his job done, he heads to the hideaway tucked behind his house in the Pacific Palisades. It’s in this bright, airy loft where he hunkers down for three hours every morning and night to write the series’ page-turning scripts. “The Internet is terrible up here, so I’m really isolated with the page and with my books,” he says. “It’s been such a sanctuary.”

Evil Does It

Through its five-season run to date, “Homeland” has a notorious lineup of villains who’ve driven the plot. When Shaun Toub, who played Javadi was being honored by an Iranian acting society, Gansa created a video presentation in his honor — hoping it might further his campaign for an Emmy guest actor nod, which »

Alan Young, ‘Mister Ed’ Star, Dies at 96

20 May 2016 2:51 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alan Young, who gamely played straight man to a talking horse for five years in classic sitcom “Mr. Ed,” died Thursday at the Motion Picture and Television Home in Woodland Hills, Calif. He was 96.

On the series, which ran from 1961-66 on CBS, Young played architect Wilbur Post, who was married to Carol (played by Connie Hines, who died in 2009) and kept a horse, Mr. Ed, in their suburban stable. Mr. Ed, voiced by Allan “Rocky” Lane, would speak only to Wilbur, but given Mr. Ed’s rather outlandish personality and the superbly mild affect of Young’s Wilbur, just who owned whom could occasionally be a matter of debate.

Young also voiced Scrooge McDuck and numerous other animated characters, as well as guesting on dozens of TV shows.

In 2005 “Mr. Ed” won a TV Land Award for most heart-warming pet-owner interaction. Young also directed four episodes of “Mr. Ed. »

William Schallert, Former SAG President and ‘Patty Duke Show’ Star, Dies at 93

Former SAG president William Schallert, best known as TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show,” died Sunday in Pacific Palisades, Calif. He was 93. His son Edwin confirmed his death.

His most memorable role was as beloved TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show” (1963-66). The performance still resonates: TV Guide slotted him at No. 39 on its list of Greatest TV Dads of All Time in 2004.

Schallert would be familiar to many for his memorable appearance on the famous “The Trouble With Tribbles” episode of the original “Star Trek” series: He played Nilz Baris, the agriculture undersecretary who is outraged to discover that the furry, endlessly reproducing aliens have devoured all the grain.

Schallert served as SAG president from 1979-81 and oversaw a three-month strike in 1980 that centered around rates and residuals for pay TV, videocassettes and videodiscs and included a successful boycott of the year’s primetime Emmy Awards. »

Lukewarm off the Presses: Hamilton, Banks, Anastasia, Cloak & Dagger. Plus Tony Buzz!

20 April 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel, back from the Nashville Film Festival where I juried on the "New Directors" competition. More on that once our awards are announced. Until then, I'm under hush order. But let's catch up on all sorts of movie & entertainment news that happened over the past handful of days that we didn't cover here.

Lin-Manuel Miranda won the Pulitzer for his Broadway smash Hamilton and, giddy squeal, The New Yorker's television goddess Emily Nussbaum won the Pulitzer for criticism. If you haven't read her, you must. She's just wonderful.

• The Golden Globes have clarified their rules for what drama and comedy mean in a probably futile attempt to get campaigns to stop trying to game the system.

• I forgot to mention that teen superhero duo Cloak and Dagger are getting their own TV show (yay! always loved them in the comic books) but Kate Beaton has two words for you "tit »

CNN’s ‘The Eighties’ Examines TV’s Most Influential Decade

29 March 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CNN’s decennial trips down memory lane continue with “The Eighties,” which kicks off its seven-part run March 31 with a two-hour installment devoted to television. Absorbing the flood of nostalgia associated with that, the great takeaway from this entertaining two hours is just how much the foundation for the current TV renaissance was built during those years, which, content-wise, just might be TV’s most influential decade.

Following “The Sixties” and “The Seventies,” “The Eighties” opens with two grand events from the period when TV could still be viewed as a water-cooler experience, simultaneously shared by a huge percentage of the population: the “Who Shot Jr?” episode of “Dallas,” and the “Mash” finale in 1983. In hindsight, those were huge blips on an Ekg that, in terms of such attractions, has been steadily weakening ever since, with the annual exception of the Super Bowl.

What really stands out, though, are the »

Golden Globes Honor Denzel Washington With Cecil B. DeMille Award

5 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s one thing to achieve success; it’s more difficult to sustain it. But the trickiest feat is to use it smartly. On any of those standards, Denzel Washington is off-the-charts successful.

The winner of this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award has been a star for more than 30 years. He could have played it safe, picking roles that tap into his likability and charisma, and he still would have had a good career. But he has continued to surprise his fans by taking on more complex characters. He has also stretched himself by returning to the stage, and adding on the jobs of producer and director.

But the most impressive thing is that he’s used his clout to help others, both by giving major breaks to some talented (but struggling) artists and by quietly giving time, money and attention to philanthropies.
