Chuck Lorre sells CBS on the comedic premise of single mothers

11 December 2012 3:16 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Though he has seen his greatest success of late mining humor from being a nerd (The Big Bang Theory), being fat (Mike And Molly), and having a penis (Two And A Half Men), Chuck Lorre got his start in the exciting start-up industry of single mother jokes—jokes that hit their mid-'90s boom with his work on Grace Under Fire and Cybill, and were instrumental in loosening social attitudes toward laughing at divorced moms, rather than drowning them in burlap sacks. Now Lorre is ready to return to those roots with a new multi-camera sitcom for CBS—one that »

CBS Orders Single Mom Comedy Pilot From Chuck Lorre & ‘Two And A Half Men’ Writers

11 December 2012 11:44 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Comedy king Chuck Lorre is expanding his relationship with CBS with a new half-hour project, which is instantly becoming a top prospect for the network’s fall 2013 schedule. The network has given a pilot production order to Mom, a multi-camera comedy from Lorre, who is behind half of CBS’ comedy series: Two And A Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly. Lorre co-wrote Mom on spec with two members of his Two And A Half Men team, executive producer Eddie Gorodetsky and story editor Gemma Baker. Mom centers on a newly sober single mom who tries to pull her life together in Napa Valley. The project, which was developed internally at Warner Bros TV, marks Lorre’s first project under the blockbuster new four-year deal he inked with the studio in September. It also marks Lorre’s return to comedies with a female lead where he had »

Seven Queens of TV Sarcasm

30 October 2012 12:17 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

“Honey, tact is for people who aren’t witty enough to be sarcastic,” Will & Grace’s Karen Walker once said. And boy would she know! She and her six cohorts listed here are simply in a league of their own in terms of biting wit.

Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter) Designing Women, 1986-93

The woman who never met a soapbox she couldn’t climb, Julia was often the mouthpiece for Designing Women creator and writer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason’s political stances, including standing up for HIV+ people when it was still unpopular and generally setting Atlanta society straight about the issues of the day. And, really, who could forget "the night the lights went out in Georgia?"...

Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) Ugly Betty, 2006-10

Morning Meme: James Van Der Beek Dances, Nph Apologizes to Sir Elton, and Adam Lambert Flirts On "Pretty Little Liars"

12 October 2012 5:38 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

E! is reporting that Colton Haynes is exiting Teen Wolf over negotiations over the number of episodes he would be appearing in. Sources for the show say that he was offered a full run, while sources for Haynes say he was offered less than half the episodes. MTV says that no one is being forced out or recast, but doesn't say that Colton isn't leaving.

James Van Der Beek may have started a trend playing a heightened version of himself on television, because now Michael Bolton is set to do the same, in a show about his assistant, him, and his out of control teen daughter. But will he make a sexy jeans commercial? And a bigger question is what exactly a heightened version of Michael Bolton looks like.

Why Maggie Smith Blew Christine Baranski's Mind

20 September 2012 6:34 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Christine Baranski is up for third Emmy for "The Good Wife," her tenth nomination overall. But this time, she's competing with "Downton Abbey's" Dame Maggie Smith.

"What completely blew my mind this year was that I, an actress out of Buffalo, would be in the same category as Maggie Smith, who to me is just incomparable," Baranski told The New York Times. "I remember seeing Maggie Smith in a movie theater playing 'Desdemona,' and she’s been my idol all these years. To be in a category with her is astounding."

On "The Good Wife," Baranski plays Diane Lockhart, a partner at her own law firm, Lockhart/Gardner, and a mentor of sorts to Julianna Margulies' character, Alicia Florrick. The Emmy nominations for "The Good Wife" have been her first for dramatic acting.

"These nominations have meant a lot to me because they’re for work done as a dramatic actress, »

The Good Wife’s Christine Baranski: From ‘Skinny Funny Girl’ to Ten-Time Emmy Nominee

19 September 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Christine Baranski just keeps getting discovered. When she graduated from Juilliard in 1974, she went straight to work in the theater and got herself two Tonys before the age of 40. In the mid-nineties, she decided to try TV and won not only a juicy role — Cybill Shepherd’s martini-swilling best friend on Cybill — but, thirteen episodes later, an Emmy. So it seemed only natural when, in her fifties, Baranski told her manager, “You know, I’m not sure I need to do any more comedy,” and mused about trying a drama-series role, “someone serious and well spoken — someone with dignity.” Soon enough, she was playing Diane Lockhart on The Good Wife — and she’s up for an Emmy again. It’s her tenth nomination in seventeen years.Curled up in her dressing room on The Good Wife’s Greenpoint set, Baranski recounts her odd career path. “Never an ingénue!” she declares, »

Christine Baranski Laments Good Wife Emmy Snub, Teases 'Cataclysmic' Season 4

17 September 2012 3:51 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Although she’s been nominated for an Emmy nine times, Christine Baranski says she’s still psyched about being in the running Sunday night — and, after reading her Q&A with TVLine, you’re likely to believe her.

In it, the Emmy winner (for Cybill in 1996) not only explains why this nod for The Good Wife is so significant to her but also picks her favorite scene from Season 3 (it involves Will), previews Season 4 (the pink slips are flying at LG) and reveals her hopes for a return engagement on The Big Bang Theory.

Emmys 2012: Who Should Win Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series? Take Our Poll!

9 August 2012 8:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There hasn’t been a back-to-back winner of the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series since Blythe Danner took home the statuette for Huff in 2005 and 2006, and that streak won’t be broken this year.

Indeed, 2011 winner Margo Martindale of Justified only appeared on one season of FX’s acclaimed drama, making consecutive wins an impossibility. Nevertheless, there are several women in the Supporting Actress race who aren’t exactly new kids on the Emmy block.

Chuck Lorre Releasing $100 Coffee Table Book

1 August 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chuck Lorre is releasing a coffee table book composed of selections from the vanity cards he airs at the end of each of his shows (Grace Under Fire, Cybill, Dharma & Greg, Mike & Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory). What Doesn't Kill Us, Makes Us Bitter will cost $100. Yes, $100. The money goes to charity, but that still seems like a lot just to read a rich guy complain about how critics don't like Two and a Half Men enough. The book doesn't include all the vanity cards, but they did throw that extra comma in the title for free, so »

Emmys: Chuck Lorre Of ‘Two And A Half Men’, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Mike & Molly’

16 June 2012 4:34 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Chuck Lorre has experienced the lows and highs of network TV situation comedies, from the challenging situation with Grace Under Fire (1993-98) and Cybill (1995-98) to his current status as co-creator and driving force behind a trio of CBS comedies: Two And A Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly. It doesn’t sound like it’s gone according to any kind of plan, and in fact that’s the case, as the sometimes fiery, always funny, veteran showrunner makes clear. If he deserves at least a humanitarian Emmy for surviving the ordeal of Two And A Half Men star Charlie Sheen’s three-and-a-half men meltdown the previous season, he’s been in the game long enough not to expect much. Awardsline: Let’s start with Two And A Half Men. Why was it important to you to keep it on the air even after part of that eighth season got scratched? »

True Blood Co-Executive Producer Mark Hudis Replacing Alan Ball as Showrunner for Season Six

23 May 2012 10:12 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Alan Ball has been a good sport and stuck with his steamy, bloody vampire series True Blood on HBO for a few years now, but as we learned in February, the Six Feet Under creator is leaving at the end of the fifth season. Now, Deadline has word on a new deal with HBO for True Blood co-executive producer Mark Hudis to take over the reins as the main executive producer and showrunner for the cable series if it gets renewed for a sixth season, a decision that likely won't be made until at least the premiere of the fifth season on June 10th. Apparently, Hudis' new deal is for two-years and also includes a development aspect for him to create new shows on his own. Hudis has been a part of True Blood for season four and now season five and actually has a history with Ball having written »

Timothy Bottoms: The Hollywood Interview

Timothy Bottoms Gets His Pound Of Flesh

By

Alex Simon

Timothy Bottoms became an overnight sensation at the height of the so-called “Easy Riders and Raging Bulls” era, after landing the leading role in The Last Picture Show (1971), Peter Bogdanovich’s film about the social and sexual rites of small town Texans in the early 1950s. Internationally acclaimed for his portrait of Sonny, a sensitive kid struggling to find his way in the harsh landscape of post-war America, the then-twenty year-old Bottoms suddenly found himself not only in-demand as a rising young star, but a major celebrity, as well, with younger brothers Sam (who co-starred in The Last Picture Show), Joseph and Ben following in their older brother’s footsteps, making names for themselves on stage and screen. Bottoms reprised the role of Sonny for Picture Show's 1990 sequel, Texasville.
