Movie Review: Jenny Slate picks up Landline, a warm family comedy from the director of Obvious Child

20 July 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Landline is set in 1995. The movie announces as much from the start, but it doesn’t really need to, because scarcely a scene passes without some reminder of this fact. There are, as one might expect, several landline telephones. A younger Hillary Clinton shows up on television, sadly unaware of what the audience knows about her future. Characters discuss Mad About You, rent movies at Blockbuster Video, and crack jokes about Lorena Bobbitt. At one point, someone puts on P.J. Harvey. At another, someone listens to a CD at one of those record-store headphone stations. Not every detail is 100-percent accurate: A scene at an arthouse movie theater, for example, includes a poster for Chungking Express, but the artwork is from the mid-2000s Criterion release. Yes, that’s a nitpick, but any movie this obsessed with its near-past setting should at least get the period signifiers right.

Thomas Schlamme Elected Directors Guild President

24 June 2017 6:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran TV director Thomas Schlamme has been elected president of the Directors Guild of America for a two-year term, succeeding Paris Barclay.

Schlamme was selected by acclamation of the 147 delegates at the DGA’s convention on Saturday at DGA headquarters in Los Angeles.

Barclay announced earlier this year that he would not seek a third term in accordance with the DGA tradition of presidents only serving two terms. The DGA represents more than 17,000 members.

Schlamme has been on the DGA national board since 2005 and was most recently third VP. He was co-chair of the 2014 and 2017 negotiating committees together with secretary-treasurer Michael Apted.

In February, the DGA honored Schlamme with the Robert B. Aldrich Achievement Award for service to the DGA and its membership. Schlamme joined the DGA in 1978.

How 'Episodes' Creators Co-Write While Being a Married Couple (Q&A)

22 June 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Writing duo David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik made a fortune off of such multi-camera comedies as Friends, Veronica’s Closet and Mad About You. Ironically, they can’t watch that format anymore.

“We spent so many years doing it, and now we can't bear it. It's a weird phenomenon,” says Crane, a co-creator of Friends. Adds Klarik, “'Cause they don't make us laugh."

The thing that does make them chuckle is frequent collaborator Matt LeBlanc’s delivery. Emmy voters would seem to agree. The Showtime series Episodes, which Crane and Klarik co-created, has earned 10 Emmy nominations throughout its run, including four for »

Helen Hunt on Her First Emmy Win and Awards Show Nerves

19 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

By 1996, Candice Bergen had had enough. After five Emmy wins for lead actress in a comedy, the “Murphy Brown” star declined further nominations for the part. “Mad About You’s” Helen Hunt picked up her baton. And while NBC’s frank and honest sitcom about married life would eventually garner Hunt four Emmy wins — as well as launch her television directing career — she still cannot fathom why her co-star (and the series’ co-creator) Paul Reiser did not have the same luck with TV Academy voters. Hunt, who this season appeared onscreen in Fox’s “Shots Fired” and also directed episodes of FX’s “Feud” and NBC’s “This Is Us,” reflects on that win for Variety.

The first thing you did when you won your Emmy in 1996 was thank Candice Bergen “for her generosity of spirit.”

Well, the year before she said she thought Helen Hunt would win. She teed me up and then made sure it »

Helen Hunt on Directing ‘Feud’: ‘It’s About What It’s Like to be A Woman As An Artist’

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

Helen Hunt rose to stardom in NBC’s hit sitcom “Mad About You,” but these days her priority is spending more time behind the camera. This season, she helmed episodes of NBC’s family dramedy “This is Us,” CBS’ comedy “Life in Pieces” — and FX’s old-Hollywood flashback “Feud,” from executive producer Ryan Murphy. (Of course, she also starred in Fox’s limited series crime drama “Shots Fired.”)

Here, she tells Variety about moving from acting to directing, lessons learned from her famous father, and the deeper meaning behind “Feud.”

You started directing when you were on “Mad About You.” Was that an important switch for you?

I always knew that if I wanted to build up mileage [as a director], this would be the place to do it. The crew was on my team and Paul [Reiser] was on my team. And I had great mentors who worked with me: my dad, [director Gordon Hunt], who won a DGA award for directing the »

‘Dear White People’ Review: How Biting Satire and a Sincere Love Story Make Season 1 Essential TV — Spoilers

28 April 2017 1:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Dear White People” Season 1. Please watch the 10 episodes, now available on Netflix, before continuing — or read the spoiler-free review.]

Romance is an all-encompassing experience. Once you’re in it, there’s nothing else out there. It’s just the two of you against the world, as they say. But generally, you’re not against anything: life, and everything in it, is improved. When you’re in love, the day-to-day is all sunshine and rainbows, leaving little time for concern, let alone cause.

This kind of overwhelming emotional state is why there’s a whole genre dedicated to romance, and why it can be hard for shows to establish a truly great relationship without letting it overwhelm everything else in the series. Viewers relate to the concept of a happy ending with a happy couple, and such an instinctual reaction can prove daunting if the will-they-won’t-they drama plays out as it does in many relationships: indefinitely.

Feast your eyes on the colors of the 1970’s, also known as “the decade that taste forgot”: The putrid chartreuse of a shag carpet, blinding mustard swivel chairs, busy cutouts on a wood paneled desk. Set to the hum of a snappy tune evoking earlier days, this trailer drums up enough excitement without actually showing anyone’s face — though the talent on board boasts Seeso’s biggest names to date.

Once upon a time, Helen Hunt’s romantic advances were rejected by former pop star and soap opera actor Rick Springfield.

TV Review: ‘Brockmire,’ Starring Hank Azaria

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

Hank Azaria has spent his career playing some kind or another of comic relief — whether that is his well-known voice acting work on “The Simpsons” or his live-action arcs on shows like “Mad About You” and “Friends.” He has the remarkable ability to mold his voice to any number of situations and characters, some less culturally sensitive than others; it makes him a kind of chameleon of a comic actor, one where his own voice is sometimes hard to hear underneath all the impressions.

Which is why it is so fitting — and unexpectedly affecting — that Azaria plays a plaid-blazer wearing baseball announcer named Jim Brockmire, whose biggest claim to fame is an on-air meltdown he had in 2007,

hours after discovering his wife in a compromising position. The show begins after 10 years of exile abroad, when he returns stateside only to discover that his greatest disgrace has become one of the first viral memes. (His »
