They also created and exec produced Showtime’s “Chris Isaak Show.”

TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

But Toronto’s Primetime program — like SXSW’s Episodics, which launched last year — represents something different: Rather than expanding the »

In another 'Sopranos' classic, Tony has to fight off two assassins

26 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the penultimate installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the twelfth episode, “Isabella," coming up just as soon as I buy you some sweat socks at The Sports Authority... "To tell you the truth, I feel pretty good." -Tony I'll be honest: even though I'd never specifically recapped these early "Sopranos" seasons, I've written so much about the show over the years, »

Emmy Drama Series Analysis: ‘Mad Men’ vs. ‘Game of Thrones’

20 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the face of it, they couldn’t be more different. “Mad Men” explored the paradigm-shifting era of ’60s America through the rollercoaster lives of deeply flawed men and women working in the ad industry (plus their assorted friends, family and lovers). “Game of Thrones” weaves an epic saga of treachery, heroics and loss (so, so much loss) out of the skirmish for control over a fantasy kingdom. But they’ve both risen to the top of the heap in one of Emmy’s most crowded competitions to date.

The Odds: It might boil down to just how sentimental Emmy voters feel. AMC’s “Mad Men” has bagged four drama series prizes in the past, and would set a category record with one more win for its acclaimed final run. But HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is arguably TV’s hottest drama and its dragon-sized (if frequently controversial) fifth season clearly connected with voters. »

'Nobody Knows Anything' as 'The Sopranos' season 1 heads into great home stretch

Script and Direction Don’t Always Get Equal Love Come Emmy Time

12 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ask this year’s crop of nominated directors and writers how to distinguish between a well-written and a well-directed episode of television and the answer you will get is largely the same: You can’t. On television shows, particularly cable series where the creative team is small, the relationship between director and writer is often so collaborative that separating the two elements is virtually impossible.

“If something is badly written or directed, I’m thinking, this is poorly written or poorly directed,” says “Silicon Valley” executive producer Alec Berg, nominated for writing the HBO comedy’s second season finale, “Two Days of the Condor.” “But if things are effectively rendered, you’re just thinking, ‘Wow, this is awesome.’ Or, ‘I love this,’ or ‘I can’t wait to see what happens.’ You’re not really thinking about the craft.”

Logically, this would mean that when submitting the episode that represents »

Edie Falco Remembers First Emmy Win For ‘The Sopranos’

12 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Over the past decade and a half, Edie Falco has become synonymous with the Emmys. She won for her first nomination as Carmela on “The Sopranos,” picked up two more for the landmark HBO drama, and another for Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” With “Jackie” coming to an end this year, Falco may finally get a respite from the red-carpet grind. But with talent like hers, don’t expect a long absence.

What do you remember about that first Emmys?

Mostly that I had to wear clothing that was so far out of my comfort zone. Having to dress like that felt like a costume. What to wear and where to get it and all that stuff was so new to me. Wearing these incredibly fancy clothes felt just uncomfortable. The whole thing was completely surreal. Being with all my “Sopranos” friends — we had driven a New Jersey bus to the ceremony. »

How Nic Pizzolatto's Temper Tantrum Toward Critics Ruined 'True Detective' Season 2

11 August 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Clearly, Michael Lombardo is not a fan of "The Sopranos" cut-to-black finale.  Prior to Sunday's final episode of "True Detective" Season 2, the HBO president told reporters he thinks "the season's ending is as satisfying as any series we've done." That's clearly a laughable assertion now — even if you didn't like David Chase's final shot — as is Lombardo and creator Nic Pizzolatto's echoed plea for critics to watch the whole season before dolling out judgment. Though post-finale analyses tend to agree the final episode only made things worse, a post-season analysis does provide a more accurate avenue to assess not only what went wrong (lots) but why. Blame doesn't lie with critics, but understanding what went wrong does start with their response to the Season 1 finale.

'Show Me a Hero' director Paul Haggis on Oscars, TV, and his love of 'The Wire'

11 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The very first pilot I watched on this job was for a CBS drama called "Ez Streets." Created by Paul Haggis — then best known for creating "Due South," but most commercially successful for having helped develop the "Walker, Texas Ranger" pilot — it was essentially an HBO drama before such a thing existed: dark, dense, ambitious, heartbreaking, and addictive. It even featured Joe Pantoliano playing a sociopath gangster years before he won an Emmy for it on "The Sopranos" (and was, to my mind, better as Jimmy Murtha than as Ralphie Ciffaretto). It was also the first time I got my heart broken in this job. Despite rave reviews from me and my more established colleagues across the country, "Ez Streets" was Doa: CBS pulled it off the air after only two episodes had aired, and though most of the remaining episodes would air the following winter, it was just running out the string. »

Marvin Gaye’s Son Plans to Sue Over Empire

10 August 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The lawsuits just keep on coming for Marvin Gaye's family: TMZ reports that Gaye's son, Marvin Gaye III, plans to sue Lee Daniels and Fox over Empire. If you're scrambling to think of a song performed on the show with that Marvin Gaye "vibe," it's not a music copyright issue this time around. You're safe for now, Charlie Puth.Gaye's son is claiming he came up with the concept for Empire years ago, and went so far as to register a show, described as a music-based, black version of Dynasty meets The Sopranos, under the name Diamonds & Ballads, with the Writers Guild of America in 2010. Gaye's son says that someone in Daniels' camp stole the show's premise from pitch emails sent to networks around that same time. His evidence: Daniels having previously called Empire the "black Dynasty" and comparing it to The Sopranos when Fox originally picked up the show. »
