Ken Ehrlich Gave Emmys An Infusion of Youth

16 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ken Ehrlich isn’t as synonymous with the Emmys as he is with the Grammys, but he does have the right Emmy mindset.

“I think a degree in psychology is always the first thing for anybody in television, because there are last-minute problems with people who don’t show up, or show up late, or don’t want to go on,” says retired TV Academy chief operating officer Alan Perris.

“I think these people who do specials, who do live television events, have a lot of ice in their blood, and they can only prepare for so much. I just think that comes with a lot of experience. There’s a unique group of people that do that job well, and Ken’s one of them.”

Ehrlich has produced six Primetime Emmycasts, most recently in 2013 for CBS, his longtime Grammy partner. Not surprisingly, he frequently infuses music into the smallscreen celebration, »

Is the death of 'mature television' really that bad?

22 January 2015 12:44 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As critics lament the end of the adult-tv renaissance – The Sopranos, Mad Men – Michelle Dean argues that teen telly isn’t really so bad, or so different

What little fun there is in addiction comes from keeping it a secret, which is why I usually don’t tell people that I really, really like an ABC Family show. It’s called The Fosters, it’s produced by noted dramatist Jennifer Lopez and its characters inhabit a beautiful two-story Craftsman home with a great kitchen in some unidentified southern California town. The Fosters – it’s a play on words – are a blended family with two moms and five children. Their family ties are complicated: only four of the kids are fostered, though two are twins, and one is the biological son of one of the mothers from a previous marriage. There is a lot of beautiful clothing and coastal scenery on offer. »

Pilot Spotlight: 'Mad Dogs' -- Watch, Rate & Review it Today

22 January 2015 9:42 AM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

It’s a twisted tale of friendship put to the ultimate test. Mad Dogs follows the reunion of a group of underachieving forty-something friends—a mix of single, married and recently divorced—who are all at different crossroads in their lives.

While celebrating the early retirement of an old friend at his villa in Belize, grudges begin to emerge and secrets explode as their trip becomes a labyrinthine nightmare of lies, deception and murder.

As an inconceivable chain of events unfolds, cracks within the group widen before the friends realize that the only people they can trust are each other, the last people they want to be relying on.

The hour-long dark comedy stars Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club) as Cobi, Billy Zane (Twin Peaks) as Milo, Romany Malco (Weeds) as Gus, Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) as Lex and Ben Chaplin as Joel.

The film critics who turned to filmmaking

22 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the Pudsey The Dog movie to Joe Cornish and Roger Ebert, what happens when critics make films themselves?

Arts critics tend to get a rough time of it in the movies. Even looking at this year's awards season hopefuls, Birdman casts a wonderfully scabrous Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic who is determined to kill the hero's play, and Mr. Turner presents John Ruskin as a lisping, pretentious fop, a representation that has led some to take mild umbrage.

To look even further back, at Ratatouille's sneering Anton Ego, or Lady In The Water's film-savvy 'straw critic', or Theatre Of Blood's gleefully murderous tract, there's not a whole lot of love for critics in film. Any of this might give way to the preconception that critics, especially film critics, don't actually like films and that they're out of touch with both the filmmakers whose works they »

FX chief on the 'Americans' future, 'Bridge' cancellation and state-of-the-network

18 January 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's hard to believe, but the TCA press tour is coming toward its end. We have PBS on Monday and Tuesday to wrap things up, but Sunday (January 18) is an FX day packed with panels, from "Archer" and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," to an afternoon that closes with the potent punch of "Louie"/"Justified"/"Americans." I'll be live-blogging a few of those panels and doing write-ups of whatever news breaks, but first, it's time to spend quality time with FX Networks and FX Productions CEO John Landgraf. Follow along... 9:25 a.m. Pacific. The picture with this live-blog isn't from today, but it reflects John Landgraf's lack of facial hair. This is important. No network chief keeps us guessing with facial hair like John Landgraf. 9:37 p.m. FX is panning an insane six comedies and two dramas today. That's a lot. The clip reel shows the network »

'Parks and and Recreation' cast says goodbye: Press tour live-blog

16 January 2015 5:28 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The last panel of NBC's press tour day (and my last panel of this particular tour, though Fienberg will be here for Fox, FX and PBS) should be a good one: a farewell press conference for "Parks and Recreation," featuring Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Aziz Ansari, Retta and Jim O'Heir, plus co-creator Mike Schur. (It's a shame Nick Offerman and Aubrey Plaza won't be here, but it feels like a miracle that Pratt has time, given how many different movies he's starring in these days.) I'll be live-blogging the whole thing, as often as my fingers and the ballroom wi-fi will allow, so hit reload early and often. (All times Pacific.) 5:30 p.m.: Bob Greenblatt introduces the panel, calls it "one of the best shows that have ever been on television." It's easy to be magnanimous when the show's on the way out the door, I suppose. »

Contest: Win The Drop Blu-Ray

16 January 2015 7:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few actors have captivated their audience in the manner of James Gandolfini for HBO’s beloved mob drama, The Sopranos. The late, great talent brought a particular kind of gravitas to the role of Tony Soprano, and his part in the award-winning show is still held up as one of the best the medium has ever witnessed.

So, when tragedy struck and Gandolfini passed away in 2013, people took interest in saying goodbye to one of the industry’s greats through his final performances, one of which was Michaël R. Roskam’s drama, The Drop. Starring Tom Hardy as Bob Saginowski, a bartender who gets caught up in a robbery gone awry, the film drew praise for a tight, satisfying script buoyed by solid central performances.

And to celebrate The Drop‘s arrival on Blu-Ray and DVD, We Got This Covered has one copy to giveaway to one lucky reader in the United States. »

Or, he will be tormented forever. Foreclosure will also be released on DVD. The DVD release date is set for February 10th. »

The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli Leads Based On True Events Haunted Neighborhood Film Foreclosure; Hitting VOD/DVD This February

15 January 2015 11:55 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

If there is a show that still scares the living hell out of me, even as an adult, that show is Unsolved Mysteries. It just gets under my skin every single time I watch it. One episode of that show in particular, is the one titled, “Black Hope“, an episode that revolved around a series of houses that were seemingly haunted by the ghosts of people buried under the land many years ago, with the new housing developments build on top of the land. It’s a scary as all hell episode, and though I get creeped out every time I think about it, I’ve always thought it would make for a great film.

Fast forward to today, when the folks at Virgil films sent us the press release for their upcoming DVD release of Richard LedesForeclosure, a film that sound eerily close to that Unsolved Mysteries episode, »

Golden Globes Embrace Changing Face of Television (Analysis)

11 January 2015 9:18 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Golden Globe voters went out of their way to embrace the new diversity in television — both in human and technological terms.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. spread the wealth among upstart digital players, lower-profile shows and actors in roles that embody minority groups and subcultures that face bias and discrimination in mainstream society. In what is believed to be a first, both the comedy and drama series winners were led or co-led by female showrunners.

Amazon’s “Transparent” landed historic win for best comedy and lead comedy actor for Jeffrey Tambor for his tour de force work as a family man who comes out as transgender. The show was deeply personal for creator/showrunner Jill Soloway, who went through a similar experience with her own father.

As she dealt with the shock of her father’s revelation, “My second thought a couple moments later was ‘I think I have a TV show, »

6 Things We Learned From the Mad Men TCA Panel

10 January 2015 12:12 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mad Men creator Matt Weiner is not one for oversharing when it comes to talking about upcoming seasons of his show. No shocker, then, that — beyond the premiere date — absolutely zero details about the series’ final half-season were revealed Saturday morning during a TV Critics Association press tour panel with Weiner and the original cast. That doesn’t mean we didn’t learn a few things from their session with reporters:—While Weiner didn’t talk about what happens during the homestretch of the show, he did tease their tone. "The last seven episodes, each of them feels like the finale of the show," he said. —In an age where the sign-offs of shows such as The Sopranos and How I Met Your Mother have left some segments of their fandom disappointed and even angry, Weiner made it clear he does care about how Mad Men fans react to the series finale. »

‘Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fifth Season’ DVD Review

10 January 2015 3:19 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

When a season is proclaimed as the final of a series there are certain freedoms it is given, and high expectations from its audience.  With Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fifth Season we see the conclusion to the story of Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson (Steve  Buscemi) in some episodes that are easily the best the show has offered over the years.

Season five of Boardwalk Empire starts six years after the events of the fourth and it’s now 1931.  To close the stories and look to the future of the mob we see the fates of not only Nucky, but also Al Capone (Stephen Graham), Nucky’s brother Eli (Shea Whigham), Chalky White (Michael Kenneth Williams) and a few of the other characters that have made it to the end of the show, or at least into this season.

With the skipping of years this season it is easy for the »

Review: The Duplass brothers' intimate HBO indie comedy 'Togetherness'

8 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The revolution in TV drama that HBO kicked off with "Oz" and "The Sopranos" involved cable television filling a void that the movie studios had created by focusing mainly on big-budget franchise movies and low-budget awards bait. If you wanted to make a middle-class drama for adults, you now had to go to HBO (David Chase had once dreamed of making "The Sopranos" as a two-hour feature), or FX, AMC, Showtime, etc. One of the interesting trends in the last few years of cable, though, has involved TV poaching filmmakers and series from the low-budget, Sundance Film Festival end of the movie spectrum. Mike White went to HBO to do "Enlightened." Jane Campion made "Top of the Lake" for Sundance Channel. Jill Soloway created "Transparent" for Amazon. Judd Apatow plucked Lena Dunham from film festival obscurity and helped her put "Girls" on TV. Some of these people had prior TV »
