New teaser for porn industry drama The Deuce starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal

10 July 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO has released a new teaser for its upcoming porn industry drama The Deuce, which stars James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal and has been created by David Simon (Homicide: Life on the Street, The Wire). Check it out here…

The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world at the pioneering moments of what would become the billion-dollar American sex industry.

The Deuce is set to premiere on September 10th on HBO. »

‘The Deuce': New Trailer Reveals the Complex Rise of New York’s Porn Industry

10 July 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I've been cautiously optimistic about The Deuce since it was announced. As most of you already know, it comes from David Simon, one of the main creative forces behind The Wire, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Treme, The Corner, and Generation Kill. I'm listing out his full oeuvre here because I love all of these works (yes, even some of the more difficult passages of Treme -- but it was all worth it in the end!) and I am also heading off "but The Wire!" comments when it comes to my reservations about The Deuce. The new trailer for … »

'Prime Suspect: Tennison': TV Review

23 June 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

In an American television landscape that has so many standout cop series, from network fare like Homicide: Life on the Street and NYPD Blue to cable legends like The Shield and The Wire, it's easy to forget that the Brits brought to life one of the most iconic detectives, Jane Tennison, and series, Prime Suspect, in the history of the medium.

In the process, everybody realized Helen Mirren was a treasure, and her performance as the hard-bitten, self-destructive and peerless detective put Prime Suspect into the hall of fame.

It's easy to cast aspersions on the logic behind a prequel, »

Exclusive: Why Sterling K. Brown Is Keeping It All in Perspective

14 June 2017 12:46 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sterling K. Brown isn’t used to being in demand.

“Busy. That’s the most apt description I can come up with, and busy is good,” Brown says of his life over the past whirlwind year and a half. The actor is speaking to Et by phone from a car on his way to the airport to catch a flight from New York City, where he’s just wrapped a photo shoot, to return to Vancouver set of the upcoming Predator reboot.

It’s been nearly a decade and a half, Brown says, “of showing up and saying your lines and then going on to the next project, hoping that one job moves into the next. But this has been a situation where people actually want to hear what I think. This is all still new.”

The Best Shows That Critics Haven’t Gotten Around to Watching — IndieWire Survey

18 April 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s a show you’ve been meaning to watch but haven’t gotten around to yet? Why?

April Neale (@aprilmac), Monsters & Critics

I hang my head in shame, I never got to “The Wire.” Whenever people go on about it, I engage, smile and nod my head like, “Yeah, Stringer Bell, man.” It also starred Dominic West who comes from that strain of dark-haired British men like Ian McShane who are catnip to me. I’ve seen extended clips and snips but never had the perfect storm of time to go back and review this landmark series. It’s up there with putting a scrapbook together in my old age, »

Gina Rodriguez Lines Up “Carmen Sandiego” & Two Potential Women-Directed Films

17 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Gina Rodriguez in “Jane the Virgin

Where in the world is Gina Rodriguez? Everywhere. Per The Tracking Board, the “Jane the Virgin” star will voice the titular character in Netflix’s animated series “Carmen Sandiego.” She is also in talks to lead two movies: Sony’s Catherine Hardwicke-directed “Miss Bala” and 20th Century Fox’s Ryan Case-helmed “Fire Me.”

“Carmen Sandiego” is a new iteration of the beloved ’90s video game “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?” and the subsequent TV series starring Lynne Thigpen (“L.A. Law,” “Homicide”). The Tracking Board writes that Netflix has given a 20-episode order to the series about the globetrotting thief, which “aims to be as educational as it is entertaining.”

As for the film negotiations, Rodriguez might have to choose between “Miss Bala” and “Fire Me,” as the projects are currently scheduled to film around the same time. “Sony sees ‘Miss Bala’ as a potential franchise starter, which could give it an edge,” the source details.

As previously reported, Hardwicke’s “Miss Bala” is a remake of Gerardo Naranjo’s 2011 drama about a kidnapped beauty pageant contestant. Rodriguez would play Gloria Meyer, “who finds herself a pawn, after her friend Suzu goes missing in Tijuana, in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA and a charismatic young crime boss.”

Fire Me” is a “9 to 5”-esque comedy based on a Libby Malin novel. Case (“Modern Family,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) will direct and Red Hour Films is producing. According to the book’s synopsis, “Fire Me” revolves around Anne Wyatt. “[She] goes to work one day determined to resign. But that’s the day her boss announces someone’s getting laid off (and with a generous severance package). Now Anne has one day to ruin her career.”

“Carmen Sandiego” and the two potential movies are just the tip of the iceberg for Rodriguez. The Golden Globe winner has a bunch of other projects in the works, such as executive producing a bullying drama for Hulu. Based on Meg Medina’s Ya book “Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass,” the series “tells the story of a diverse, vibrant Brooklyn community confronting bullying, racial tensions, and questions of identity.”

Also on Rodriguez’s docket are a multi-year deal between CBS and her I Can and I Will Productions banner, a book about her father’s advice, and a potential adaptation of the German series “Dr. Illegal.” Rodriguez’s upcoming films include romantic comedy “Sharon 1.2.3.,” sci-fi thriller “Annihilation,” and animated movies “Ferdinand,” and “The Star.”

Gina Rodriguez Lines Up “Carmen Sandiego” & Two Potential Women-Directed Films was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

Ok, I listed like 50 answers for last week’s Guest Stars question and I’m determined not to cheat this week! Kinda. The answer is “Friday Night Lights,” but I acknowledge that there are caveats, because the NBC TV series was based on the feature film, which was based on Buzz Bissinger’s book, so is the show based on a book or based on a movie? Well, because Peter Berg adapted both, I’m gonna say they’re both based on the book, because really the only continuity »

Wayne Brady showing up in body armor and riding a horse on Syfy’s post-apocalyptic disaster disaster “Aftermath” needs to be mentioned somewhere in this critics’ roundup, so here it is. But I’ll point out two from intentional comedies that come to mind. Timothy Olyphant’s short run on “The Grinder” as himself was fantastic and if I didn’t mention this my coworker Kaitlin would kill me. But my pick goes to David Duchovny, also as himself, on “The Larry Sanders Show.” We’d largely known Duchovny for »

A Medium With a Message: Inside TV’s Long History of Tackling Social Issues

14 March 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Abortion. Alcoholism. Pedophilia. Slumlords. Assisted suicide. Civil rights. Criminal justice reform.

These are all timely topics for television drama in 2017. But they were also tackled, with gritty realism, more than a half century ago on two landmark CBS series: “The Defenders” (1961-65), starring E.G. Marshall and Robert Reed as crusading father-and-son defense attorneys, and “East Side/West Side” (1963-64), featuring George C. Scott as a New York City social worker, with Cicely Tyson as his able secretary. Tyson’s series regular role, coupled with the fact that she appeared with her natural hair, was groundbreaking in a fraught period of civil rights struggles.

The New Frontier era ushered in by President John F. Kennedy’s election marked a moment when the networks made room for “prestige” narrative series that dealt with weighty social issues. The appetite for serious fare was stoked by the May 1961 declaration by Kennedy’s FCC chairman, Newton »

First Photos: James Franco plays twins in HBO’s next big series ‘The Deuce’

3 March 2017 1:32 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Deuce photos land online ahead of the new show’s debut this summer.

Some early images from HBO‘s new TV drama The Deuce, which comes to the screen courtesy of The Wire creator David Simon, have just dropped online. The Deuce photos come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly who give us our first look at James Franco playing the Martino twins – one a struggling bartender and the other his slacker brother – in the cable series, which arrives later this year.

Franco plays the duo, two key players in Times Square who became involved with the mob by providing fronts for the sex industry’s early days. Maggie Gyllenhaal plays a sex worker in the show, an entrepreneurial prostitute named Candy. She can be seen in the second image.

Simon spoke with EW and offered the series as a critique of market capitalism:

It has to be “Twin Peaks,” right? I’m one of those annoying people who insists the show is so much more than “Who killed Laura Palmer?”, but that is our entry point to David Lynch and Mark Frost’s weird little world, and the question that briefly made “Twin Peaks” a pop-culture phenomenon.
