‘The Larry Sanders Show’: Want to Understand Its Genius? Start With David Duchovny

23 September 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Today marks a very happy occasion for television fans, one we’ve been clamoring for for some time — HBO has made the complete 1992-1998 run of “The Larry Sanders Show” available for streaming on HBO Go and HBO Now.

Starring Garry Shandling, Jeffrey Tambor and Rip Torn, the ensemble cast also included Jeremy Piven, Janeane Garofalo, Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Thompson and Bob Odenkirk over the course of its six seasons. The groundbreaking comedy was notable for no shortage of reasons, from spotlighting future creators like Paul Simms and Judd Apatow and establishing HBO as a home for quality comedy to influencing countless other comedies in the same vein.

Since Shandling’s death earlier this year, people have been wanting to revisit the series in all its 1990s glory. In particular, the way “Larry Sanders” handled celebrity was one of its most memorable threads — the show allowed famous folk of »

Westworld Review: For a Series About Robots, HBO's Drama Has a Lotta Heart

23 September 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you ever saw Michael Crichton’s cheesy but enjoyable 1973 Westworld, you should go ahead and erase it from your memory before sampling HBO’s series adaptation (premiering Sunday, Oct. 2, at 9/8c). The small-screen upgrade — developed by Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest) and Lisa Joy, and boasting J.J. Abrams among its executive producers — is about as different from its big-screen counterpart as Ava in Ex Machina is from R2-D2 in Star Wars.

The Larry Sanders Show: 8 Essential Episodes to Stream Right (Hey) Now

23 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Hey now, and hallelujah: After a few years stuck in streaming purgatory, all 89 episodes of The Larry Sanders Show are now available on HBO Go/HBO Now, as of this Friday. It’s a fitting home, too, since the original run of Sanders aired on HBO from 1992 to 1998 — and changed television as we know it.

If you’re not familiar, Larry Sanders stars Garry Shandling as the chronically insecure host of a struggling late-night talk show. Rip Torn co-stars as his no-bs producer Artie, along with Jeffrey Tambor as Larry’s self-loathing sidekick Hank Kingsley. Looking back now, Sanders was revolutionary, »

Transparent Season 3 Review: A Sweetly Awkward Family Reunion

22 September 2016 3:56 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s always nice to catch up with the Pfeffermans, isn’t it? The family at the center of Amazon’s Transparent is woefully messed up — and was long before dad Mort became mom Maura. But their flaws are achingly relatable, and sharply observed by creator Jill Soloway and company. Season 3 (available to stream Friday) feels like a family reunion of sorts: Sure, you might hear some stories you’ve heard a hundred times already, but you’re still glad to see everyone’s face again.

The premiere finds Maura (Jeffrey Tambor, fresh off a second Emmy win) enjoying the »

During the Emmy Awards tonight, Jeffrey Tambor memorialized his friend and co-star Garry Shandling, who died this past March.

Jeffrey Tambor Pays Tribute to 'Legendary' Garry Shandling at Emmy Awards

18 September 2016 6:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Legendary comedian and primetime television star Garry Shandling was honored at the 2016 Emmy Awards. Jeffrey Tambor took the stage to pay tribute to his late friend and former costar. "It seems appropriate that tonight we celebrate comedy, we remember a legendary, standup fantastic Emmys host - a great, real late-night host, a great fake late-night host, a great fake late-night host who David Duchovny was sexually attracted to," he said. "He was happy with his poor vision because he said he could date anybody." Shandling suffered a heart attack at home and called 911 himself before being taken to a hospital in Los Angeles, »

Emmy Winner Jeffrey Tambor: "Give Transgender Talent a Chance"

18 September 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jeffrey Tambor won lead actor in a comedy for “Transparent,” thanking showrunner Jill Soloway and the creative team at Amazon during his speech.

You changed my life, you changed my career and you changed everything,” Tambor said to Soloway.

As the reigning champ in the category, Tambor was the frontrunner from the start of Emmy season. The veteran actor has received a tidal wave of kudos for his portrayal of the transgender Maura Pfefferman.

Tambor won his first Emmy last year for “Transparent.” He’d previously racked up six nominations, three for HBO’s “The Larry Sanders Show” and two for Fox’s “Arrested Development.”

He ended his speech on Sunday night by asking creatives to give “transgender talent a chance.” “Give them auditions. Give them their story. Do that.

“I would not be unhappy if I were the last cisgender male to play a female transgender on television, we have work to do,” he »

If Jeffrey Tambor Wins Another Emmy He Hopes the Cameras Find His Wife - and Not a Seat-Filler - This Year

18 September 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor is, of course, thrilled simply to be nominated for an Emmy once again. But he does hope that if he wins again this year, the TV cameras find his wife in the audience and not - like last time - a total stranger. "If luck comes my way, we'll try not to do what we did last year," Tambor told People at Saturday's annual BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea, recalling how his wife of 15 years, actress Kasia Ostlun, had taken an ill-timed restroom break just before his category came up during the ceremony.

‘Documentary Now’: A Missed Opportunity Reveals The IFC Show’s Biggest Flaw

16 September 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The most impressive thing about “Documentary Now,” the Bill Hader/Fred Armisen/Seth Meyers collaboration that’s just launched its second season on IFC, is the attention to detail. In creating these stand-alone tributes to iconic docs like “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” and “Grey Gardens,” the team prides itself on accuracy beyond compare for all elements of production, even going so far as using 1920s camera lenses for the first season’s “Nanook of the North” homage, or traveling to Tijuana to capture that edgy “Vice” feel.

Emmy Lead Actor Race Analysis: Jeffrey Tambor vs. Anthony Anderson

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

Last year there was no question. Jeffrey Tambor was destined to win his first Emmy (in a remarkable TV career that includes “The Larry Sanders Show” and “Arrested Development”) for his transformative performance as Maura Pfefferman on Amazon’s freshman sensation “Transparent.” This year, there’s a decent chance he’ll repeat. But the outstanding lead actor in a comedy series race doesn’t feel nearly as cut and dried. Five formidable competitors stand in his way, each with his own strong case for a win. Just don’t be surprised if it boils down to a battle royale between the Pfefferman family matriarch and Anthony Anderson’s Johnson family patriarch.

The Odds

Given Emmy’s fondness for repeat winners, and the continued excellence of his performance, Tambor remains the safe bet by a mile. But there’s always the chance that someone sneaks in for an upset, and the field is full of rich possibilities. If »

"The Night Of" Second Season Considered

31 July 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

On the surface, HBO's currently acclaimed and so far strongly rated mystery drama series "The Night Of" seems to be very much a 'one and done' style affair - an eight-episode self-contained event series about a complex murder case in New York City.

That may not be entirely true though as showrunner Steven Zaillian told the press (via THR) this weekend at the network's TCA presentation that a possible second installment is in discussion:

"We're thinking about it and if we come up with something we all feel is worthy of doing, we'll do it. This was designed as a standalone piece. … That being said, there are ways of certainly kind of taking what it feels like and what its about and doing another season on another subject."

Such a move wouldn't be unprecedented. The series is a remake of the five-part 2008 British mini-series "Criminal Justice", that version had Ben Whishaw »
