Writer/Creator Gary Janetti Brings “Vicious” Brit Gay Sitcom Stateside

27 June 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The pairing of acting legends Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi is a match made in heaven, but putting them together in a bawdy, bitchy British sitcom playing lovers who have been together for nearly 50 years? Yes, please!

Vicious aired last year in the UK and had its share of fans and critics. American viewers are finally getting a chance to decide for themselves if this show is the gay sitcom that we’ve been waiting for. (One good sign is that Vicious already has a second season order and will start shooting this fall. Hopefully the Us airings will garner solid ratings to continue airing beyond the first season).

TheBacklot sat down recently in West Hollywood with series creator Gary Janetti, who you know as a writer on such comedies as Will & Grace and Family Guy as well as being partnered with celebrity stylist/TV personality, Brad Goreski.  Janetti »

Rupert Grint Making Broadway Debut In 'It's Only A Play'

18 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Rupert Grint, best known for playing Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series, will be making his Broadway stage debut in the comedy It’s Only A Play.

Rupert Grint's Broadway Debut

In Terrence McNally’s play, Grint will play prodigy director Frank Finger, who is bringing to life a script by a fragile-nerved writer in need of some positive reviews played by Matthew Broderick, reported Entertainment Weekly. A lot rests on Frank's ability to put together a performance for opening night that will launch the struggling writer back into critical success.

Nathan Lane is joining forces on stage once again with Broderick – with whom he starred in The Producers – as his character’s best friend. Will and Grace actress Megan Mullally is playing the play’s producer, Stockard Channing will play the leading lady, and Homeland’s F. Murray Abraham will act as a notorious critic. Micah Stock, »

TV On Tap: Jeremy Sisto Joins A&E’s “The Returned” Remake, HBO Adapting Margaret Atwood’s “MaddAddam” Trilogy and “Game of Thrones” Is HBO’s All-Time Most Watched Show

News

Vulture reports that the next season of Big Brother will be broadcast in HD. Big Brother is such a complicated show to film, switching from Sd to HD took three years to complete, a process that had to take breaks when it came time to airing new seasons. Big Brother is the last prime time show on the broadcast networks to still air in Sd.

Kevin Ryan, one of the guys who looked magnificent on Copper, despite all that awkward facial hair and layers upon layers of clothing, has been added to the cast of History’s upcoming mini-series Sons of Liberty. Ryan will play a British officer in the revolutionary war drama.

Darren Aronofsky is developing a series for HBO based on the Margaret Atwood MaddAddam trilogy. That series always sounded interesting to me but it also sounded depressing enough to send me to the relatively-happier works of Octavia Butler. »

How Hit Guest Stars Ended Up on TV’s Top Shows

5 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Playing a guest role on a TV show can be one of the most difficult acting jobs: While series regulars have the luxury of building a role over time, a guest star has to drop in and create a fully fledged character, sometimes with only a few lines.

Dawn Steinberg, executive VP of Talent and Casting at Sony Pictures Television, which produces such shows as “The Blacklist” and “Masters of Sex,” compares it to visiting a household. “You’re walking into a family dinner, the table has already been set,” she notes. “And it’s your job to sit at the table and pass the turkey, pass the vegetables, and fit in. Whether you’re the villain, the good guy, the uncle, the aunt, the doctor, the lawyer, your job is to fit in with an already established cast, and that’s really hard.”

NBC's 'The Music Man Live': Let's cast it!

13 May 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Dammit, NBC — why’d you have to announce an upcoming live version of The Music Man that likely won’t premiere until 2015? How are we supposed to get excited for Peter Pan Live when we know that this is on the horizon?

No disrespect to the Lost Boys, but Meredith Willson’s 1957 classic is a much better show than the 1954 stage version of Pan. (So long as Mary Martin isn’t involved, anyway.) The songs are catchier, the book is wittier, the production numbers are more fun — and there’s much less chance of high-wire mishaps, which actually might make »

As we announced earlier this week, USA has ordered a pilot of a show titled Difficult People, co-created by and co-starring Billy Eichner and Vulture's own Julie Klausner. (It's also produced by Amy ... Poehler. Poehler? Is that how you spell it?) According to us, "the show follows the duo who play New York comedians who hate everyone but each other." We're happy for them and asked the pair to tell us a few short things about their pilot. They did.1. We play bitter, struggling outliers in the NYC comedy world who can't get a break while our peers move on to fame and fortune. And everybody drives us crazy. The only people we don't talk shit about are each other. And Margo Martindale, who is having a great year, And It's Only May!!!!! 2.

Original Air Date: 23 February 1999

That Certain Summer, a made for TV movie, airs as the ABC Movie of the Week. It is the first TV movie to deal with the subject of homosexuality cordially.

G.B.F. Review

21 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Darren Stein’s sparkling comedy G.B.F. is one of those typical American high-school set productions where every character looks like they’re more likely to be picking up their own children from school, rather than actually study there. Nonetheless, this merely sets the precedence for a picture that requires a suspension of disbelief in order to enjoy, in what is a glitzy and ultimately superficial affair – though that’s not to say it’s not rather good fun.

Michael J. Willet plays Tanner, a young, gay student reluctant to come out of the closet, in spite of his best friend Brent’s (Paul Iacono) best efforts to persuade him otherwise. In a rare lapse of concentration, Tanner is accidentally outed, and though expecting a backlash of sorts, instead he becomes one of the most popular guys in school, as the coolest girls, consisting of the likes of Caprice (Xosha Roquemore »

straight white man unable to comprehend pop culture that doesn’t focus on straight white men

21 January 2014 9:01 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Behold the bewilderment, in a piece actually entitled “A Straight Man’s Guide to HBO’s Looking” at Esquire, by Mick Stingley. (Yes, he’s white.)

Gays have largely been depicted in television and movies as either extremely fun and funny (Will and Grace; The Birdcage) or starkly sad and depressing (Philadelphia; Angels in America) so perhaps it’s time for a Hollywood portrayal of gay life as normal, tedious, and bland. Makes straight guys seem together and interesting by comparison, though. And if this show really takes off, prepare yourselves for a world of boring gay men who blend in and will probably talk to you about last night’s game and drink bourbon

Could be Looking is in fact extremely boring. But there’s tons of extremely boring shows about straight white guys, and you don’t see straight white guys scratching their heads at the oddity of such a thing. »
