Norman Lear Teams Up With Peter Tolan to Revive His Senior Citizen Comedy ‘Guess Who Died’

13 July 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Norman Lear is moving one step closer to making his long-gestating comedy “Guess Who Died” a reality.

Emmy-winning writer Peter Tolan (“The Larry Sanders Show,” “Rescue Me”) has joined the project as co-writer with Lear on the show, which is set in a retirement village. Lear has been working on the show for at least seven years, and frequently brings the project up in interviews. But until recently, he expressed dismay that it might never get made.

But now the legendary TV producer, at age 94, is on another hot streak. Following the recent successful remake of Lear’s 1970s sitcom “One Day at a Time,” now reimagined at Netflix with stars Justina Machado and Rita Moreno, Sony Pictures TV is developing “Guess Who Died” as a spec comedy script.

That means it’s still in very early stages of development, but the addition of Tolan gives it more momentum. Tolan »

Emmys’ Musical Chairs: Epix Enters the Scripted Race, While Others Prepare to Exit

3 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One network enters, two networks exit. The era of Peak TV has added several new outlets to the Emmy race in key scripted categories – and the new entrants this year include Epix, the premium cable service that recently launched an ambitious original series strategy.

Meanwhile, this may be the final year that two other networks compete in those categories, as they appear to be exiting the premium scripted game: Wgn America, which is adjusting its programming strategy away from prestige drama like “Underground,” and A&E, which is returning to its core focus on unscripted fare as “Bates Motel” ends its run.

For nascent cable and streaming networks, an Emmy nomination (or even better, an Emmy win) is a clear sign, particularly to the industry, that you’ve arrived. That prestige is often used as a marketing tool, or as justification in boosting subscriber fees or additional distribution. It also »

The Best Summer Television Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked

26 June 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the not-so-good old days, summer used to be a break for more than just students. It was time off from great TV, as broadcast networks aired reruns, sports, and reality competitions while they assumed people were outside having fun. But since the new golden age began, all these TV shows have had to fit in somewhere, and many networks chose to run them during the less competitive summer months.

That’s led to a boon of TV’s best shows popping up when no series dared debut before. So, to honor the latest summer sensation — Netflix’s “Glow” — we’ve gathered the elite qualifiers below and ranked the seasons by overall quality, summer spirit, and re-watchability. To be eligible, seasons needed to be released in the months between June 1 and August 31 during the 21st century. After all, there’s plenty of new options to consider, but sometimes you want »

Guest Actress in a Comedy: The Frontrunners and Dark Horses for 2017 Emmys

1 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There are a lot of returning faces in the guest actress category. Look for multiple Emmy winners Christine Baranski and Laurie Metcalf to repeat in this category for their work as the mothers of leads Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki on “The Big Bang Theory” — Baranski already has four noms for the role, while Metcalf has one. Three of the four times Melissa McCarthy has hosted “SNL” has led to a nomination here, and this year she has the bonus of her impeccable Sean Spicer imitation. Elizabeth Banks has also been nominated in the category before for “Modern Family,” but she faces serious competition from other “Family” guests like Dot-Marie Jones and Jane Krakowski. Another show with great guests is “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” which had turns by Laura Dern, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Amy Sedaris. And Carrie Fisher should lock a nod for her swan song on “Catastrophe.” Previous nominee Kristen Wiig had an entire episode »

Ryan Seacrest Confuses Jeffrey Tambor for Dead Actor in ‘Ghost’

17 May 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ryan Seacrest had an awkward moment with actor Jeffrey Tambor on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” Wednesday when he mistook Tambor for the late “Ghost” actor Vincent Schiavelli.

Seacrest referred to Tambor’s roles on “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Arrested Development,” and “Transparent” as “unforgettable” while introducing his guest to the audience, and then went on to recount his fond memory of watching Tambor in “Ghost” as a child. Tambor, however, never appeared in the film.

“We talked about the things you have done and are doing, but to me, you’re the scary guy on the subway in ‘Ghost,'” Seacrest admitted.

Tambor took the error in stride and drew out his reaction for comedic effect.

“Oh, this is horrible,” he said in his signature bass. “You’re gonna be embarrassed. That’s not me. He’s dead.”

Seacrest and co-host Kelly Ripa tried to play along with the mistake, with »
