Emmy-Nominated Director To Helm Trek TV Premiere

23 July 2016 1:54 PM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Bryan Fuller isn't taking the route of some television pilots and premieres by bringing in some big-time movie director to set the pace. Instead, he has hired David Semel a name you probably wouldn't recognize to help lay the groundwork for the new Star Trek television series.Semel will direct the premiere, which is set to air on CBS in January. He's probably best known in the genre for his work on shows like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Roswell" and "American Horror Story."However, Semel likely caught Fuller's eye because he helmed the pilot of NBC's "Heroes" in 2006, which excited an entire fanbase and actually earned him an Emmy nomination that year. He would lose to Alan Taylor from "The Sopranos," but it turned Semel into a hot director.Fuller is expected to release more details of the »

How 'BoJack Horseman' Became TV's Funniest, Saddest Show

22 July 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Picture the great, morally conflicted antiheroes of the TV canon: Tony Soprano, Don Draper, Walter White. You can now add to that mental list of "difficult men" a bitter, washed-up sitcom actor who also happens to be a cartoon talking horse.

The premise of Netflix's animated tragicomedy BoJack Horseman — that a depressed, alcoholic pony (voiced by Will Arnett), still coasting on his popularity from starring in a Nineties Full House-styled program, is attempting to engineer his own comeback — sounds like the something a viewer might stumble upon at 3 a. »

Review: 'The Night Of' gets to know Jack Stone in 'Subtle Beast'

17 July 2016 7:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's The Night Of coming up just as soon as this blog is like Jeopardy... "The truth can go to hell, because it doesn't help you." -Jack Where last week's premiere understandably spent most of its time on Naz, "Subtle Beast" more evenly splits things between lawyer and client, allowing us to really get to know the man who's going to try to keep Naz from going to prison for the rest of his life. It's a simultaneously funny and poignant running gag throughout the episode that everyone Jack encounters — cops, lawyers, judges, even his ex-wife — instantly recognizes that he must have stumbled into a case this big, even as they all seem to be rooting for him. Whatever ambition he may have once had in life has long since given way to his life as a bottom-feeder, handing out "No Fee Till You're Free" business cards »

Review: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 3, Episode by Episode, Stays Beautiful — But Never Apologizes For Going Dark

13 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When you look for beauty in life, the most rewarding moments are the unexpected. And for the third season in a row, the Hollywood comedy “BoJack Horseman” has surprised us.

That’s weird to say about a show which stars a cartoon celebrity horse (voiced by Will Arnett) whose personal morals are pretty much nonexistent. But Netflix and creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg have made something profound, re-watchable and dense — and yes, also beautiful and traumatizing.

Start with the very first episode of “BoJack,” and you’ll find that the show’s initial, somewhat nihilist message was that TV exists not to solve your problems, but to suppress them. (That’s what happens, after all, with a series about a washed-up TV star coasting on quickly-acquired fame.) What’s so daring and bold, though, is that it’s never strayed from that message. »

Meet ‘The Night Of’ Star Riz Ahmed, Who Just Wants To Keep Things Honest

8 July 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Night Of” didn’t happen overnight for Riz Ahmed. The actor first began work on the HBO drama four years ago, back when the late James Gandolfini first brought his passion project to network. “I started shooting this in 2012. I was a different person,” he recently told IndieWire. “I’ll never forget this experience. It’s emotional, because it was a lot of blood, sweat and tears for everyone to get to this point.”

In “The Night Of,” adapted from a British miniseries by Richard Price and Steve Zaillian, Ahmed stars as Nas, a young man whose bad luck drags him into the criminal justice system. But right now, Ahmed — who broke out in Dan Gilroy’s “Nightcrawler” — may be about to explode on a whole new level, as he heads into the blockbuster world »

Review: 'The Night Of' is the great drama HBO very badly needs right now

5 July 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's his name about a minute into the opening credits of The Night Of: James Gandolfini. That Gandolfini, who died three years ago, is still listed as an executive producer on the new HBO miniseries speaks to the deal he signed way back when he was going to co-star in the project (in a role now played by John Turturro), and to his role as one of the people championing it through development. It also evokes images of a time when HBO owned the Prestige TV game outright, benevolently renting space out to would-be challengers because its position was so strong. That was a long time ago, before the rise of Netflix and all the other Peak TV players, and before HBO skidded into its current rough patch. Executives keep leaving abruptly. Recent dramas have either failed outright (the expensive, star-laden Vinyl got unrenewed last month), imploded quickly (True »

‘Thor: The Dark World’ & ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Director Alan Taylor Returning For ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7

Alan Taylor already had plenty of TV experience under his belt with “The Sopranos,” “Sex And The City,” and “Homicide: Life on the Street” (among others) before he stepped into the world of Westeros with “Game Of Thrones,” but it was his work on that series that truly brought him to the attention of Hollywood.

Denis Leary Talks Season 2 of ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ and the Heavy Burden of ‘Rescue Me’

30 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When I sit down with Denis Leary, the comedian and writer currently starring in his creation “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,” he’s coming off of days of edits, watching each episode of Season 2 over and over again, looking for the minute changes that need to be made. Confronting himself on screen doesn’t bother him if he’s working, but he recalls going to the premiere of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” in which he played Emma Stone’s father, Captain Stacy. He had to watch himself in 3-D. “I put on these glasses, and I’m sitting with my kids, and everything was great until my first time my guy showed up. You should never have to watch yourself in 3-D. My nose!”

Over nearly three decades, Leary’s made a career as a stand-up, actor, and writer, lending remarkable pathos to the a–holes he became famous for singing about. His »

If you haven't at least heard the name Lin-Manuel Miranda, I don't know what rock you've been living under, but it's time to crawl out. Miranda has been making headlines for the past year thanks to Hamilton, the Broadway musical that he created and starred in. Hamilton has seen enormous success, and since Miranda is set to leave the show in July to tackle new projects, there are a few things you should know about him. Here's your cheat sheet! The basics: Miranda was born and raised in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City. He's of Puerto Rican descent, a fact he proudly showed off at the Grammys this year. He attended Wesleyan University, where he formed a hip-hop comedy troupe and wrote and directed musicals. You may have seen him on TV already.

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4: Matthew Weiner Talks Directing Episode 12 ‘The Animals’

27 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[Spoiler alert: The following interview discusses the entire fourth season of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black.” Do not read unless you’ve watched.]

The last time Matthew Weiner directed an episode of television was the series finale of his beloved creation, “Mad Men.” So it’s only fitting that his follow-up gig makes just as much noise, and the twelfth episode of “Orange Is the New Black” Season 4 has certainly caused a stir.

The episode, titled “The Animals,” closes with the death of fan favorite character Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley) in a tragic scenario that echoes a real-life murder at the center of the Black Lives Matter movement. But even beyond that devastating climax, the season’s jam-packed penultimate installment is full of memorable scenes: Sophia (Laverne Cox) finally returns to general population; Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) and Boo (Lea DeLaria) settle their differences; the prisoners put aside racial divides to stage a peaceful protest; the list goes on.

It would be an intimidating assignment even for one of the show’s veteran directors, and »

The Best Movies of the 21st Century, According to IndieWire’s Film Critics

25 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s one thing to come up with a top 10 list of the best movies in any given year. The best movies of the decade is even harder. But the best movies of a century? Ok, when it comes to the new millennium, that’s just a decade and a half. Still, it’s no easy task to consider the highlights from 16 years of viewing — but that’s part of what makes it such a compelling challenge.

Recently, BBC polled a large group of critics, including IndieWire’s Eric Kohn and David Ehrlich, for their lists of the best achievements of the 21st century. (The full results will run in mid-to-late August.) The results of the poll have yet to run, but as countless participants have begun sharing their results, we felt compelled to weigh in. Of course, lists are highly subjective and almost always omit some major titles, so »

Film Review: ‘The Phenom’

23 June 2016 3:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A a time when the cachet of talk therapy continues on its long slow downward spiral (so much more time-consuming, and déclassé, than the mood-altering drugs marketed by Big Pharma), movies about the wonders of baring your soul to a doctor who’s been paid to care are not exactly in high demand. HBO, of course, did its bit to stir up the drama of therapy with “The Sopranos” and “In Treatment.” But it’s now a different world from the one where ordinary people once sought out movies like “Ordinary People.” When you watch “The Phenom,” about a superstar Major League rookie pitcher who is having control issues, you think you’re in for a baseball story, but it’s really a movie about how a guy who throws five wild pitches in one inning needs to heal on the inside.

Winter Is Coming, and It’s About Time HBO Changed Its Game Plan

22 June 2016 4:57 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has had some rocky times of late, but at least in cancelling “Vinyl,” it made a Sansa decision, not a Jon Snow decision.

In the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones,” HBO’s flagship drama, Sansa did something that was deeply unpalatable to her in order to serve a larger purpose. But her brother, Jon Snow, made some calls that simply weren’t pragmatic given the reality he faced.

Cancelling the flawed “Vinyl” was the right move, and one that might indicate that the network is finally ready to fight a realistic battle with the army it has and the tactics it needs.

For years, once it had established itself as House Prestige with “Sex and the City” and “The Sopranos,” HBO resided in the kind of lofty tower that allowed it to gaze upon the TV fray from afar. Like the Lannisters, the HBO clan only moved with the most connected movers and shakers »

‘Vinyl’ Canceled: HBO Makes Its Music-Biz Drama a One-Hit Wonder

22 June 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It seems that HBO’s music-biz drama was a one-hit wonder. The network has canceled “Vinyl” after a disappointing first season that saw showrunner Terence Winter (previously of “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Sopranos,” also for HBO) forced out of the band in April. Disappointing ratings plagued the series, which stars Bobby Cannavale as a struggling record executive in the 1970s, from its inception.

HBO Cancels ‘Vinyl,’ Scrapping Plans for a Season 2 Revamp

22 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has scrapped plans for a second season of “Vinyl,” the 1970s-set music biz drama exec produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger.

The series starring Bobby Cannavale as a larger-than-life record mogul had a rough run in its first season earlier this year, drawing modest ratings and lukewarm reviews. Ray Romano, Olivia Wilde and Juno Temple co-starred.

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of ‘Vinyl.’ Obviously, this was not an easy decision,” HBO said in a statement. “We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”

HBO gave the show a second season renewal after its premiere in February. But by the end of the series’ run in April, HBO announced a showrunner change for season two, with Scott Z. Burns replacing creator Terence Winter. Burns was still in the early stage of working out a blueprint for season »
