Paul Reiser Has No Plans for ‘Mad About You’ Revival

7 August 2016 1:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A quarter century after its debut, “Mad About You” endures as one of TV’s classic romantic comedies. But despite the mania for reunions, revivals and sequels that has spread across the dial, series co-creator and star Paul Reiser has no intention of revisiting the lives of Paul and Jamie Buchman any time soon.

In Reiser’s mind, the question of what the couple, played by Reiser and Helen Hunt, would be doing today was answered in the two-part series finale that aired May 24, 1999, capping a seven-season run on NBC.

“One of the things we did deliberately in the finale was that we jumped ahead in the future. We saw where they went,” Reiser told Variety. “Part of why we did that was to avoid the temptation of going back…When you watch a reunion (show), all you do is say ‘Wow do they look older.’ ”

Reiser at present is a co-star of the 1980s-set Amazon comedy »

Interview: Actor Paul Dooley on Getting to Portray Dad

26 July 2016 7:37 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – After he reigned as the father in the classic 1979 film “Breaking Away,” actor Paul Dooley suddenly became everyone’s Dad – and by everyone that meant Molly Ringwald (“Sixteen Candles”), Julia Roberts (“Runaway Bride”) and Helen Hunt (“Mad About You”). He tells all in Part Two of a comprehensive interview.

The former “Paul Brown’ was born in West Virginia, and studied acting at West Virginia University, before heading to New York City and a new career as Paul Dooley. He did stage work, stand-up comedy and the New York City version of The Second City. He got his big break in the original stage version of “The Odd Couple” in 1965, directed by the legendary Mike Nichols. While working the stage, he appeared in a number of commercials, eventually moving to Los Angeles to “be where the action is.”

Starz Moves ‘Power,’ ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ to Sundays This Summer

25 May 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Premium cabler Starz, which has aired most of its scripted originals on Saturday, is making a move to Sunday nights this summer.

The network announced Wednesday that its most popular show, “Power,” will air alongside comedy “Survivor’s Remorse” on Sundays when they kick off their third seasons starting in July. “Power” bows July 17 at 9 p.m. with a triple play of episodes. The show will air 10 hourlong episodes.

One week later, on July 24, “Survivor’s Remorse” opens its season with the first two of its 10 half-hour episodes airing back to back at 10.

In 2015, “Power” averaged 2.18 million viewers and a 1.04 rating in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-7” estimates. “Survivor’s Remorse” drew 658,000 viewers and a 0.31 in the demo.

Sunday is home to cable biggies like HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” though “Power” won’t overlap with either this summer.

Now that you have had a few days to come down from the season finale of Gotham, you may have started wondering when you can own the home video release. Thankfully, Fox and Warner Bros. opted to not wait very long at all to announce that the complete second season will arrive on Blu-Ray on August 16. One would also expect a DVD release on that very date, but it remains unclear whether or not it will contain all of the featurettes included on its mighty Blu-Ray counterpart.

Speaking of featurettes, a full rundown can be found in the official press release, along with a thorough synopsis and cast details. We also have the front cover art to share with you, which bears what may be the coolest piece of promo art circulated for this past season.

FX’s The Strain Season 3 to Premiere on August 28th

10 May 2016 1:08 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

FX has announced that The Strain Season 3 will premiere on Sunday, August 28th, giving fans plenty of time to mark their calendars and settle in for round three of the fight between the living and the bloodthirsty strigoi.

In the past, The Strain has started its seasons in mid-July, so the late August start time is a bit of a transition. This season will consist of ten episodes compared to its usual 13-episode orders, but fans can still expect a lot of action and character-driven drama following the Season 2 finale.

Along with the premiere date announcement, FX unveiled a photo from The Strain (see below), and we also have the official press release with Season 3 synopsis:

Press Release (via TheFutonCritic.com): Los Angeles, May 10, 2016 – FX Networks has set the premiere dates for the highly-anticipated third seasons of The Strain and You’re the Worst, it was announced today by Chuck Saftler, »

'Twister': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Summer Blockbuster

10 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Released 20 years ago this week (on May 10, 1996), "Twister" wasn't just a blockbuster special-effects spectacle that made viable movie stars out of Helen Hunt an Bill Paxton.

It was also the "Apocalypse Now" of weather-themed disaster movies. The film's production was marked by severe injuries to the stars and crew, a runaway budget, and the cinematographers openly rebelling against the director. Here are the real-life twists you didn't hear about from the tornado drama's tempestuous shoot.

1. The "Twister" screenplay is credited to "Jurassic Park" novelist Michael Crichton and his wife, Anne-Marie Martin, but it was revised by such celebrated script doctors as Joss Whedon (who dropped out of the project because he contracted bronchitis), Steven Zaillian (who dropped out because he was leaving for his honeymoon), and Jeff Nathanson, who was on the set and kept rewriting the script until the end of the shoot.

2. Helen Hunt was director Jan de Bont »

‘Game of Thrones’ isn’t the only show with a crucial ‘Home’ episode

2 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fair warning: some spoilers ahead for a handful of shows, including major spoilers for last night’s Game of Thrones. Big things (albeit not-all-that-surprising things) happened on Game of Thrones yesterday. Jon Snow is alive! “Home” is the title given to last night’s hour of the HBO show — Jon Snow returned home to the land of the living, Bran went home in a vision, Theon began a journey home, where his uncle had already arrived, and other characters had their own homecomings of sorts too. Photo credit: HBO Writers of several shows have turned to the word “home” for crucial episodes of television, episodes for building mythology, revealing backstories, returns of long-gone characters, major changes in family dynamics, and forcing characters to face their pasts. Let’s take a look at how other shows have delivered pivotal, fan-favorite hours of TV titled “Home”: Supernatural — season 1, episode 9: Sam »

Tom Moore's 'The Flight Fantastic' Tells the Story of Legendary Flying Gaonas

28 March 2016 9:57 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

This fascinating look at the world of the flying trapeze centers on one of the greatest acts in circus history, The Flying Gaonas. First performing on a trampoline, the Gaonas went on to become a star attraction for the best circuses in the world, including Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.

"The Flight Fantastic"  opens April 1st a the Cinema Village in New York. 

Having left the center ring, we see The Flying Gaonoas pass the torch through teaching and coaching to new generations. When Tito decided to retire from the circus he did not retire from the trapeze and set up programs at Club Med and Camp Care for children with cancer.  When the next big circus act, the Vasquez Family, succeeded theirs, Tito’s comment about them was “I’m just glad they’re Mexican like us”.

You will love the circus spirit of this documentary.  And the love that went into creating it is a charisma to the trapeze artists themselves.

Sports Illustrated has said, "Tito Gaona may be the finest athlete in the world...whenever circus people gather to speak of the best acrobats of all time he will be mentioned; some will even say that Tito Gaona was the best ever."

Director Tom Moore, a long-time Broadway Director (and trapeze flyer), brings their story to life through interviews with family members and colorful archival material. The Gaonas light up the screen with their blazing charisma, a quality that is undiminished in their "second act".

Your career on Broadway and in television is so vast and varied, what inspired you to make this documentary?

I feel I’ve been very fortunate in my career and life in that I’ve had an opportunity to do so many things.   A good many successful, and even more a great experience.   But like many people in the arts I’m always looking for a new adventure and a new way of work.  

Mike Nichols was once asked, what do you enjoy doing most plays or films, and he replied “Whatever I haven’t done last.”   Well, documentary was a form I had never had a chance to direct, and because of my passion for the trapeze, and my passion for film, it allowed me to combine my skills to tell a story I felt had to be told.

Do your past productions on B’way and in TV share anything in common with “Flight Fantastic”?

First and foremost, all of my productions whether on B’way or TV or film hopefully tell an interesting and intriguing story with compelling characters, with a lot of excitement and drama thrown in for good measure.   As a director, there is also probably a certain style and sense of theatrics that hopefully helps tell the story and progress the plot.

You say you also work out on the trapeze?  How did that come about?

What led to trapeze also led to making this documentary.  In retrospect, it all seems like a through line from the first time I took hold of the trapeze bar and “flew,” to making this film called “The Flight Fantastic.”  

 I had been entranced as a child with the circus, but more particularly the flying trapeze and I no doubt fantasized about being a trapeze star.     As my life and career went on of course, that faded into childhood and the past.   But one year, feeling I had been doing too much of the same thing for way too long, I began looking for a new adventure.   Well, I discovered the Flying Trapeze, and a childhood memory was brought to life when I had a chance to learn to “fly” with Richie Gaona at the Gaona Trapeze Workshop. 

As Sam Keene, a wonderful writer on the trapeze world said. “Sometimes a childhood fantasy that you never dared to dream, holds the key to renewal.”   And that is exactly what it did for me.  It gave me a new sense of exhilaration which led to better work and better life.   As I continued to practice it as a sport, I also got to know Richie and the whole Gaona family.   These were some of the greatest athletes who ever lived, and absolutely one of the “greatest flying acts in the history of the circus,” and outside the circus world,, most no longer knew who they were.   I felt I had the skills to right that wrong, and the result is “The Flight Fantastic.”

What other involvements do you have with the Gaona family?

The Gaona famly is quite the amazing group of individuals, charismatic and compelling, and I have gotten to know them deeply over the years, and have become almost a surrogate, though very wasp Gaona.   I have a photo where Richie photoshopped me, wearing a matching trapeze robe, into one of their iconic press photos, and it looks like Victor, the patriarch is looking at me saying something  like “Who let the blonde guy in???”

I’m very fond of all of them, and all of them, by the way, are very unique and different from each other, but the one I love the most was the matriarch Teresa (Mama Terre) Gaona.   Had she been alive, she would have been one of the stars of this film.  I am quite sure the warmth of this family came directly from her care.   People were drawn to her everywhere, and being around her made for a “happy” time.   There were four children that became performers on the trampoline and trapeze, but there are 3 others that had different careers altogether.   One of the narrators of this film is Jose, often called “The Walking Gaona.”

Who do you see as your audience? 

We knew that the film would have a core audience of those who love the circus and the aerial arts (and it has brought many to the film) but Tff seems to reach many others because of the warmth of the family, the closeness of the family, and the family’s ability to work together to build something  (as Paul Binder, founder of the Big Apple Circus says) “magnificent.”   It seems to reach old and young alike for many different reasons.   The ringmaster at Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus used to say: “Ladies and Gentlemen, and Children of All Ages…..”

Something happens when an audience sees this film in a theatre.  (And this was a surprise to me when I first saw it on a big screen).  It seems to unite them in a shared sense of hope and joy.   It seems to rejuvenate and inspire.   At all of our screenings in many different places, the reactions have been the same and it has been very exciting. 

Tell us about Camp Care

Camp Care (a camp for children coping with cancer) is located on Lake Lure in North Carolina, and it was actually our first shoot for the documentary. It was knowing that Richie and Armando Gaona were going there to coach, teach, and support, that got me off of the theoretical idea and into the practical of making the movie.   Within a couple of days, I had gotten our equipment, and a few people together to help, and off we went.  

I can safely say that I don’t think I have ever been in a more inspirational, supportive and caring environment.    Many of these kids had just gotten out of a hospital room to come to camp which is held for one week every year, and their joy in being there was palpable.  That they never complained, and that they worked through fear to go up on that trapeze to achieve their goal was impressive at every turn.   And it wasn’t just the kids, as I was also very impressed with the counselors, many who arranged their year of study or work just to be available at Camp Care  for these children, some of whom had been coming to the camp for years.   I have so much film of this camp, as I just couldn’t stop filming, as around every corner and every group of children, there was something remarkable.   I could have stopped right there and made a documentary about this magical place alone.   I look forward to going back there again some day as I remember it and everyone there with great fondness. 

In the days when the circus was one of the most important events of the year and when audiences went to see their favorite performers each and every season, The Flying Gaonas were Big Top royalty. Often called the "First Family of the Air", The Flying Gaonas are a 4th generation Mexican circus family. They began their careers on the trampoline, but quickly took to the air.

From the beginning, Tito Gaona always knew he wanted to be a trapeze artist and used to fly with any trapeze act that came to the circus, starting at the age of 10. And after seeing the Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis movie “Trapeze”, Tito convinced his father, Victor - a legend in his own right- and siblings to develop a trapeze act, making their debut at the Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers circus. It took only a couple of years for them to become one of great acts of the circus, and in their time they were the headliners in circuses around the world. Most notably, they performed for 17 years with Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey, The Big Apple and the legendary European circuses. For this, The Flying Gaonas won the circus world's highest award, The Golden Clown, at the international circus festival at Monte Carlo - the Oscars of the circus world.

The charismatic and very handsome Tito was the center of the act and one of the foremost innovators in the world of trapeze. People would come again and again to see him perform, and often he would have arenas of 40,000 people chanting and clapping: “Tito, Tito, Tito! It is said that Tito communicated with an audience as if he or she was a very personal friend, and he could mesmerize 25,000 or 40,000 people at a time.

When the Gaonas were in residence at Madison Square Garden with the Ringling show, the flying act was covered by all the major media in the city, each and every year. NBC news called him “arguably the greatest athlete in the world today.”

It is said that their skill came from their father,Victor and that their warmth and generosity came from their mother, Teresa. “The Flight Fantastic” is dedicated to her memory.

The Flight Fantastic “is Tom Moore’s first documentary feature, although he has had a long career in theatre, film, and television fiction. He directed the film of “Night Mother” with Sissy Spacek and Anne Bancroft, following his direction of the Broadway production with Kathy Bates, which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, and for which he received his second Tony nomination

In the theatre, Mr. Moore is best known as the director of the original production of “Grease”, which ran for eight years and is one of the longest running shows in the history of Broadway. Over the years, this production introduced John Travolta, Richard Gere, Patrick Swayzee, Peter Gallagher, Treat Williams, Barry Bostwick, Marilu Henner, Adrienne Barbeau, and countless others.

His first directorial Tony nomination was for the direction of the Big Band Musical “Over Here!”, which brought the Andrews Sisters out of retirement. Other Broadway productions include the critically-embraced revival of “Once in a Lifetime” (with John Lithgow, Deborah May, Treat Williams, and Jayne Meadows) at the Circle-in-the Square, “Division Street”, “The Octette Bridge Club”, “A Little Hotel On The Side” with Tony Randall and Lynn Redgrave, and the short-lived, but legendary

“Frankenstein” at the Palace Theatre.

 His most recent Broadway production was “Moon Over Buffalo” with Carol Burnett.

 On television, he directed Disney’s first original musical for television, “Geppetto”, starring Drew Carey and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss. He has helmed episodes of “ER” (Emmy nomination), “Mad About You” (Emmy nomination), “L.A. Law” (Emmy nomination), “Cheers”, “Ally McBeal”, “Gilmore Girls”,”Thirtysomething”, “Cybil” and many others.

He was a fellow at the American Film Institute, and he holds a B.A. from Purdue University and an M.F.A. from the Yale University School of Drama. He was also awarded the degree of Doctor of Fine Arts, honoris causa, by Purdue University.

As an avocation, Mr. Moore is actively involved with the Circus Arts, and spends as much time as possible on the flying trapeze. »

Paul Reiser on Early Role in ‘Diner’ and Working With Will Smith in ‘Concussion’

18 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Reiser has a slew of movies coming out this year, including “War on Everyone,” “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” “The Darkness” and “Joshy.” Also upcoming: the second season of Amazon’s “Red Oaks” plus the May 3 release of the “Mad About You” boxed set, with all 164 episodes. The standup comic was first mentioned in Variety on March 5, 1981, when he was cast in Barry Levinson’s “Diner.”

What was “Diner” like?

It was my first job in show business. It was a crazy circumstance. A friend of mine was going in for an audition, and I was waiting for him, when casting director Ellen Chenoweth asked if I had a [headshot], and I said no. I went back the next day with a picture; next thing I know, I was in a movie. It was a great way to start a career — highly regarded director, (and the movie was) so well received. »

Berlin Film Review: ‘War on Everyone’

12 February 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Everything “War on Everyone” writer-director John Michael McDonagh knows about United States law enforcement he must have learned watching ’70s cop shows, while the rest of his outlook on the American way of life may as well have been cribbed from vintage photographs and Glen Campbell records. Not a bad mix of influences for the wicked-dark Irish satirist to recombine for his virgin foray abroad, a talky, sexy, irreverent and ultimately somewhat surreal buddy-cop movie in which two detectives one suspension shy of early retirement stick their noses into the middle of a million-dollar heist, hoping to bust the criminals and keep the loot for themselves. While his American competition practices the right to remain silent, McDonagh writes his clever, coal-black heart out, delivering another firecracker script, whose explosively entertaining execution boasts considerably more commercial potential than his previous two indies, “Calvary” and “The Guard.”

Is You, Me and the Apocalypse Just the Jolt NBC Needs?

28 January 2016 10:31 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How dry is the NBC comedy well? Dry enough that it's taking straight-up imports. It's not unheard of for ABC to air Canadian cop shows in the summertime, say, but not so long ago, the eight o'clock Thursday slot on NBC was as primo as primo got, which is where the network has placed Sky 1's You, Me and the Apocalypse.
