House of Cards Actress Elizabeth Norment Dies

28 October 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Elizabeth Norment, the seasoned TV actress who most recently starred as an unflappable Beltway secretary on Season 2 of House of Cards, has died at the age of 61.

Abu Dhabi: Image Nation Bridges Hollywood and Arab Worlds

16 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Abu Dhabi-based Image Nation, run by U.S. exec Michael Garin, is a unique outfit set on a financially disciplined course with a multi-pronged strategy: calculated risk investments in Hollywood pics and bold but commercially viable local projects such as the UAE’s first reality TV format, “Beyond Borders,” in which rich Emirati kids travel outside their comfort zone, and an upcoming Abu Dhabi-set version of “L.A. Law” to be titled “Abu Dhabi Judicial.”

“The nice thing about Image Nation is that with our initial capital and cash flow we are financially self-sustaining,” Garin says. “So unlike other organizations that keep looking for outside capital from the government, we have all the money we need to operate for five years and beyond.”

Garin claims the initially government-backed outfit is enjoying a high rate of return from its partnerships — currently with Parkes/MacDonald on upcoming pics, including the live-action “Barbie” project »

Abu Dhabi Becomes Textbook Case on How to Build Showbiz From Scratch

16 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Abu Dhabi — which recently lured shoots of the new “Fast & Furious” and “Star Wars” installments and Bollywood’s “Bang Bang,” while also spawning road movie “From A to B” — the first Emirati pic ever to open the Abu Dhabi Film Festival — is fast becoming a textbook case in how to build a film and TV industry from scratch.

In less than a decade, a concerted effort has fostered what Abu Dhabi fest topper Ali Al Jabri calls the “Abu Dhabi system,” in which separate but synergic government-backed entities are laying the foundations of a nascent film and TV industry, now starting to gain traction. In this process, a key socio-economic function is being fulfilled, as the young nation strives to reduce its reliance on oil and fortify its future economy and self-identity.

One building block is Twofour54, Abu Dhabi’s media zone, which now hosts more than 300 media companies, including CNN, »

TV Review: ‘The Good Wife’ Is the New Black For Network TV

21 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In broadcast circles, “The Good Wife” is the new black, which makes events set in motion by its sixth-season premiere particularly appropriate. After the operatic highs of season five – which saw the death of a major character, and in the wrenching grief that followed, earned an Emmy for Julianna Margulies – there were legitimate questions about what the CBS series could possibly do for an encore. Based on this terrific start – written by showrunners Robert and Michelle King, and directed by the former – as they say in court, asked and answered.

Although rooted in politics and law, “The Good Wife” has also exhibited an inordinate ability to deal in big business machinations, highlighted by the original defection from the firm of Lockhart-Gardner, the jockeying for clients that ensued and now the potential earthquake of partner Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) abandoning her firm to join the upstarts at Florrick/Agos, headed by »

12 June 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Leading lights in Abu Dhabi’s nascent film sector have told Hollywood executives they are ramping up efforts to create a Middle East media and content hub as the region invests in sustainable alternatives to an oil-based economy.

CEO Noura Al Kaabi (pictured) of twofour54, the commercial arm of the Media Zone Authority-Abu Dhabi, and Image Nation chairman Mohamed Al Mubarak were speaking at a panel on Wednesday (11) as part of a promotional trip to Los Angeles.

“We want to reach a level where we’re the hub of creative content in the region,” said Al Kaabi, whose organisation operates on behalf of the Abu Dhabi Film Commission, the Abu Dhabi Film Festival and Abu Dhabi Media Summit.

In recent years twofour54 and/or the Commission have enticed a number of high-profile productions with Abu Dhabi’s fresh 30% production incentive.

These include Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode VII, which remained »

How TV’s Bad Boys Reap Emmy Awards

4 June 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rascals are in vogue these days. Just ask Emmy.

Last year’s lead actor in a drama slate featured Walter White of “Breaking Bad,” Don Draper of “Mad Men,” Frank Underwood of “House of Cards” and Damian Lewis of “Homeland.” Connivers and cheaters all; many of them killers, too.

All remain eligible this year. And if 2013’s good fellas (“Downton Abbey” patriarch Lord Grantham, and “The Newsroom” award-copping lead Will McAvoy) get snubbed, plenty of GoodFellas wait in the wings to steal their slots, from Red Reddington of “The Blacklist” and Nucky Thompson of “Boardwalk Empire,” to Rustin Cohle on “True Detective” and the psycho to top all psychos, “Hannibal.”

What is it about all these bastards? Is there something in the zeitgeist that’s being reflected here? Let’s back up a little.

Still reeling from JFK’s murder, 1964 America looked to perpetuate New Frontier idealism. So while Lbj passed progressive social legislation, »

Those Were The Days (of TV theme songs)

25 May 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like it or not, the television landscape has changed. Reality TV and its “stars” seem to be here to stay, which is bad news for nostalgia freaks like me, who’d rather watch repeats of old shows than spend half an hour with a real housewife, a top chef, or a Boo Boo of any kind. While the number of reality shows are on the increase, an integral part of TV viewing has quietly been disappearing; that simple melody that you waited to hear with anticipation once a week coming from your living room, aka a theme song.

If you’re under a certain age (like say, 25 or younger), you might not get my gripe. I can’t really blame you; most likely you’ve grown up with slim pickings as far as theme songs go, and by now watch everything online anyway, commercial and theme song free. But shocker: »
