‘Ally McBeal’ at 20: David E. Kelley on Feminism, Overnight Success and Calista Flockhart’s ‘Magical’ Performance

8 September 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A flawed protagonist. A tone that turns easily from drama to comedy to smash-cut fantasy. A young and fetching professional woman who is more than willing to revel in her weaknesses.

Those sound like all the elements for a pitch that could make the rounds of premium cable and streaming services today. But in fact they were the were the essential ingredients in a Fox series that premiered 20 years ago: “Ally McBeal.”

The series birthed by David E. Kelley at the height of his network TV power defied easy categorization even as it quickly resonated with its post-yuppie, pre-millennial target audience.

To its creator’s surpise, “Ally McBeal” sparked a national conversation about the state and status of women in women’s movement. Remember the 1998 Time magazine cover that featured an insouciant Calista Flockhart juxtaposed against images of Susan B. Anthony, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem and asked “Is Feminism Dead?” Kelley »

Nicole Kidman: Our intimate chat about ‘Big Little Lies’ at Emmys, emotions of ‘Lion,’ and her big year in 2017 [Full interview transcript]

Nicole Kidman hopes to match her Oscar with an Emmy (or two) at this month’s awards ceremony. She is nominated as a producer and lead actress for “Big Little Lies,” the limited series with 16 nominations that was written by TV legend David E. Kelley (“Picket Fences,” “The Practice”) and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (“Dallas Buyers […] »

'Ally McBeal' at 20: Calista Flockhart, David E. Kelley and More on Dancing Babies, Feminism and Robert Downey Jr.

4 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

If TV shows had godparents, Ally McBeal's would have been Melrose Place and The Practice. Without those two series, chances are Fox's groundbreaking dramedy about a lawyer and her crazed life might never have happened.

During the 1997 pilot season, Fox was searching for a companion series to follow its fading favorite Melrose Place. Writer-producer David E. Kelley obliged, creating the quirky Ally for a fall launch. However, he balked when the then-head of the network, Peter Roth, suggested they hold off premiering it until spring 1998 so as to avoid the usual glut of fall debuts. Still »

Arrow Boss Teases Michael Emerson's 'Fantastic' Debut as Mystery Villain

27 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fans of Michael Emerson‘s turns on Person of Interest, Lost and/or The Practice may get a hint — but only a hint — of his previous TV work when he arrives to make mayhem on The CW’s Arrow this fall.

As trumpeted at the San Diego Comic-Con last month, Emerson is set to recur during Season 6 (premiering Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9/8c) in an undisclosed mystery role. During TVLine’s Fall Preview Q&A with co-showrunner Wendy Mericle, it was confirmed that Emerson will be playing one of at least two main threats to Oliver Queen, another being Fringe alum »

Golden Globes’ Biggest Red Carpet Rebels

2 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy Awards has a long reputation of being the straight-a cheerleader big sister to the Golden Globes’ more rebellious, drama club younger sibling, at least as far as its fashions are concerned. Save for some break-the-mold looks like Bjork’s infamous swan dress (and, lest we forget, its accompanying egg clutch) and Cher’s Bob Mackie headdress, the Oscars are remembered for polished jewels while the Globes are there for stars to make statements.

The go-to example for this argument is still, now over a decade later, “The Practice” star Lara Flynn Boyle’s skimpy petal pink prima ballerina faux paus from the 2003 ceremony. The get-up served its purpose; that is, it changed her narrative for the evening from solely being about her recent breakup with Jack Nicholson, who would win lead actor in a motion picture drama for “About Schmidt” (he told the Associated Press that Boyle’s Swarovski-dazzled tulle skirt and matching Chanel shoes »

Arrow Season 6: Person of Interest's Michael Emerson Cast in Mystery Role

22 July 2017 6:19 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Michael Emerson seems poised to do a real number on the Green Arrow.

The Person of Interest and Lost alum is joining the CW series for Season 6 in the recurring role of… an unnamed mystery character that has yet to be announced. Hmm.

In addition to his runs as Harold Finch and the equally enigmatic Benjamin Linus, Emerson’s previous TV credits include Parenthood and The Practice. »

The Mystery of Why Top TV Producers Shonda Rhimes, Greg Berlanti and Chuck Lorre Haven’t Won an Emmy

30 May 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Shonda Rhimes, Chuck Lorre and Greg Berlanti are easily the most powerful producers on TV. Yet none of them have ever won a Primetime Emmy.

Ten years ago, that might not have been the case. But Rhimes, Lorre and Berlanti produce populist fare for (mostly) broadcast networks, at a time when those shows are no longer on the Emmy radar.

In 2016, the broadcasters were shut out of the top Emmy categories for the first time in the award’s history. Never before had the top drama, comedy and actor and actress prizes gone exclusively to cable and streaming services.

But last year’s results were the culmination of a trend that began when “The Sopranos” star Edie Falco won the Emmy in 1999 for Outstanding Drama actress. By 2001, HBO had grabbed the first outstanding series prize for a cable series (“Sex and the City”), as well as both top drama acting »
