Before the Break-in: Looking Back at Dina Manzo’s Post-Housewives Life

17 May 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In 2010, Dina Manzo famously left The Real Housewives of New Jersey, citing the ongoing drama with controversial costar Danielle Staub.

“The most important thing in my life is to live peacefully and be happy and right now everything in my life, except for this Danielle situation, is happy,” Dina said on what was to be her final episode of the show. “There’s no dealing with her in a rational way. She hasn’t changed and she’ll never change. I tried. I’m done, I’m out.”

Though she’d reappear in season 4 and rejoin the cast for season »

The Best Sitcoms That Need a Revival Now — IndieWire Critics Survey

2 May 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television 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: In light of the recent “Roseanne” revival news, which sitcom would you like to see a revival of? (Let’s assume this is feasible from a network, talent, production, etc. standpoint.)

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

So many great sitcoms are personality driven, which makes it hard to remember great premises worth reviving. (And also, when I think about some of my ‘90s favorites, like “Step by Step” or “Friends,” it’s like… Oh, maybe there’s nothing new under the sun.)

But, beyond my eternal wish that someone would remake “Almost Human” as an adorable rom-com about Karl Urban and Robot Michael Ealy falling in »

Exclusive: Justin Simien Builds on the Momentum of ‘Dear White People’ With Netflix Series

28 April 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Dear White People, Justin Simien’s hit Sundance film about race relations on a predominantly white Ivy League-type campus, gets expanded into a 10-episode series for Netflix.

Making its debut on Friday, April 28, the TV adaptation tells the story of racial tension largely through the perspectives of Samantha White (Logan Browning), a biracial student who uses her radio show to dress down white students who appropriate black culture; Troy Fairbanks (Brandon P. Bell), the dean’s son who is held up to a higher standard; Lionel Higgins (DeRon Horton), a freshman reporter coming to terms with his sexuality; and Coco Conners (Antoinette Robertson), a scholarship student who seeks a higher status quo.

The film, which first debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, was a sharp-tongued take on what many thought of as a post-racial America following the election of President Barack Obama. Picking up where the events -- culminating with a blackface Halloween party -- of the »

HBO Programming Chief Casey Bloys and 'Insecure' Star Issa Rae Talk TV Diversity

25 April 2017 9:06 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Before she was a Golden Globe-nominated actress and a New York Times best-selling author, Insecure creator and star Issa Rae was simply a young woman looking for others like her on TV.

"What influenced me to start Awkward Black Girl in the first place was just this negative representation of regular black girls on television," she said Tuesday at a Paley Center conversation with HBO programming president Casey Bloys. "I'm doing my part, because I was frustrated by the lack of representation I was seeing."

While the '90s showcased African-American-centered series like Martin, Living Single, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and »

‘Black-ish,’ ‘Insecure,’ and Others Aren’t Just ‘Black Shows,’ As Nielsen Study Proves

17 March 2017 9:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As the nation becomes increasingly divided, a small piece of encouraging news comes from, of all places, Nielsen: A new study shows that several programs predominantly African-American casts also boast a large percentage of white viewers.

The new roster of diverse series that have found cross-cultural appeal include ABC’s “Black-ish” and HBO’s “Insecure.” Around 79% of the”Black-ish” audience is non-black, while the “Insecure” audience is 61% non-black.

Black-ish” is a huge hit for ABC: It stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross as parents of a growing family who struggle to create a sense of black identity for their kids while living in a wealthy, predominantly white neighborhood. “Insecure,” created by Issa Rae and inspired by her web series “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” is about a young African-American woman in Los Angeles, her friendships, and how it’s sometimes hard to make the right decisions.

Netflix’s TV adaptation of the “Dear White People” film will premiere on April 28, Variety has learned. Netflix has also released a teaser, which you can watch above or on YouTube.
