Emmys: Salute to Henry Bromell’s Legacy

22 September 2013 7:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy voters gave a final nod to veteran scribe Henry Bromell in selected his “Q&A” episode of “Homeland” for the drama writing trophy.

Bromell died in March at the age of 65 of a heart condition, just as production was beginning on the third season of “Homeland.” His widow, Sarah Bromell, accepted his award and noted how hard he and the “Homeland” crew worked on the episode that was pivotal for season two as it encompassed the first open confrontation between Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison and Damian Lewis’ Nicholas Brody.

“It was like a little movie and it was really difficult to figure out how to do it,” Bromell said. “They found a really beautiful solution to the problem and a turning point. It was a huge puzzle piece in the whole season.”

Bromell noted that “Homeland” was a fitting closer to her husband’s career, which included stints on such prestige shows as “Homicide, »

Big Adventures on the Small Screen: What Next for the Future of TV?

30 August 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

During the course of his career, Kevin Spacey has established himself as an A-List, Oscar-winning star on the big screen, a passionate driver of quality and a catalyst for change on the stage, and now in 2013 he finds himself at the forefront of the revolution of another medium. Spacey of course starred in Netflix’s first major foray into original programming (let’s try and forget about Lilyhammer), playing Congressman Frank Underwood in their ambitious remake of the BBC miniseries, House of Cards.

With David Fincher attached as an executive producer and also directing the pilot, a cast that boasted Robin Wright and Kate Mara, and a high-profile marketing campaign from Netflix, House of Cards arrived amidst a great deal of pomp and circumstance in one singular block of 13 episodes. Generally favourable reviews followed, and then the show made history at the Emmys where it became the first online series »

The Academy invites 276 to join, including Jennifer Lopez: 6 other eyebrow-raising invitees

28 June 2013 3:49 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

On Friday (June 28), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the 276 artists and executives they've invited to join the esteemed organization for 2013.

"These individuals are among the best filmmakers working in the industry today," Academy President Hawk Koch said in a statement. With visionary directors Behn Zeitlin ("Beasts of the Southern Wild") and Steve McQueen ("Shame) and legendary actress Emmanuelle Riva ("Amour") invited, he's on to something.

So what in all that is holy is Jennifer Lopez doing on the list?

Lest we offend any "Selena" fans, we'll admit that Lopez turned in some fine work in the 1997 biopic, as well as 1998's "Out of Sight." But, come on. The woman who starred in "Monster-in-Law" and "Anaconda" is not one of the best filmmakers working today.

The Academy only began revealing its invitee list in 2004, and in the time since, it's made a few other head-scratching decisions. (After all, »

Henry Bromell’s Legacy Looms Large Over ‘Homeland’

28 June 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anyone who watched the last season of “Homeland” remembers the Interrogation.

Unfolding nearly halfway through the episode Q&A, the 15-minute scene finds Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison masterfully breaking down Damian Lewis’ Pow-turned-congressman Nicholas Brody piece by piece, until he admits he’s a would-be suicide bomber. Her only weapon in the intense confrontation? Words. Alternately devastating and delicate, the scene stands as a hallmark of the talent of “Homeland” exec producer Henry Bromell, who died March 18 at age 65 of a heart condition.

“That was a very challenging episode, closer to a play in some ways than a TV script,” says “Homeland” exec producer Howard Gordon. “Henry understood just how gripping two people in a room talking could be, and he really lived and breathed it until he nailed it.”

Three months after his death, the “Homeland” writers’ room is still grappling with the loss of Bromell.

The Sopranos Tops List of 101 Best Scripted TV Shows of All Time

3 June 2013 7:37 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) has decided to put together a list of 101 best scripted television shows of all time.

"Seinfeld" took second place, topping the list of the best sitcoms, beating "M*A*S*H" (5th), "Cheers" (8th), and "Friends" (24th). "The Twilight Zone" landed in third place. The show has been around since the 50's and is still on the air today. It's been rebooted twice and Bryan Singer is currently in the works on a fourth version.

"The Sopranos" - The Best Written Show Ever?

3 June 2013 10:59 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Last night the Writers Guild of America unveiled a list of what they are calling the 101 "Best Written TV Series of All Time."

The choices are mostly excellent, but like with any list - the ordering is highly debatable. "The Sopranos" and "Seinfeld" took the top two spots whilst current acclaimed shows like "Mad Men," "The Wire," "The Simpsons," "Breaking Bad" mixed with old classics like "The Twilight Zone," "Mas*H," "Cheers" and "Hill Street Blues".

Of course, everyone has their own take. I think some shows should be higher than they are such as "Deadwood," "The X-Files," "Game of Thrones" and "I Claudius". There's also some glaring omissions - the UK "The Office" makes it, but the far superior writing in the likes of Brit comedies like "Black Adder," "Yes Minister" and "The Thick of It" does not?

Here's the complete list, what do you think?

101 best-written TV series full list: 'The Sopranos,' 'Seinfeld' and more

3 June 2013 8:50 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The Writers Guild of America has released its list of the 101 best-written TV shows of all time. Over half the list is from the last decade, which the WGA says is due to the "sharp growth in original programming on bath basic and pay cable television," where writes are "given more latitude to explore the moral complexities of the worlds they created."

However, the WGA also points out that shows from TV's previous great eras are all the more impressive because of the constraints under which these previous generations of TV writers had to work.

Here is the complete list, though check out the WGA post for more details about why each show was included. What do you think got left off that should've been included? Do you take issue with any of the ordering?

1.             The Sopranos

2.             Seinfeld

‘The Sopranos’ Leads WGA List of Top TV Series

2 June 2013 11:51 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Writers Guild of America on Sunday unveiled its list of the “101 Best Written TV Series of All Time,” topped by HBO’s “The Sopranos.”

The mob drama created by David Chase (pictured above right with “Sopranos” star James Gandolfini) led the list over such perennial faves as “Seinfeld” (which ranked No. 2), “All in the Family” (No. 4), “Mash” (No. 5) and “The Wire” (No. 9).

On the other end of the list was a three-way tie between the original NBC “Late Night with David Letterman,” FX’s “Louie” and HBO’s intense prison drama “Oz.”

The list, the results of online voting by members of the WGA West and WGA East, immediately spurred debates over the rankings and omissions. The TV tally was a follow-up to the WGA’s “101 Greatest Screenplays” member survey conducted in 2006.

The WGA’s complete list of TV series follows:

Jim's Notebook: Arrow, NCIS, Scandal and More!

19 April 2013 10:28 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Too many of our favorite shows remain in reruns... but next week we’ve got new episodes of Arrow, NCIS and Scandal - and I have some scoop for TV Fanatic about each of these hit programs.

Before they air, though, take some time this weekend to watch the phenomenal Call Me Crazy on Lifetime, executive produced by Jennifer Aniston. Alright? Now let’s empty out the Notebook…

Arrow Felicity is about to leave her desk and hit the streets. Make sure to watch in “The Undertaking” (airing 5/1), where the quick-witted Miss Smoak actually gets to go out in the field. And while we normally see her with Ollie and Diggle, with whom would Emily Bett Rickards like to share more scenes?

“I haven’t had any scenes with Susanna [Thompson] and she’s a phenomenal actor,” she told me of the actress that plays Ollie’s mother, Moira. “Even at »

The St. Louis Globe-Democrat is a monthly newspaper run by Steve DeBellis, a well know St. Louis historian, and it’s the largest one-man newspaper in the world. The concept of The Globe is that there is an old historic headline, then all the articles in that issue are written as though it’s the year that the headline is from. It’s an unusual concept but the paper is now in its 25th successful year! Steve and I collaborated in May of 2011 on an all-Vincent Price issue of The Globe and I’ve been writing a regular monthly movie-related column since. Since there is no on-line version of The Globe, I post all of my articles here at We Are Movie Geeks. This month’s edition of The Globe takes place in 1865, the year President Lincoln was shot .Steve and I originally decided I would write an article »
