Brian Wilson's Fascinating Story Fuels The Winning Beach Boys Pic Love & Mercy

17 March 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s a cliché for biopics about musicians to follow the same sort of Behind The Music narrative structure . tracing the pattern of initial hardship, followed by rise to success, followed by superstardom, followed by self-destruction, followed by redemption . but that structure is far too simple to portray the life of The Beach Boys. Brian Wilson. The real legend of the singer/songwriter/composer is actually almost too incredible to believe, as it.s a tale of serious mental illness, intense abuse, and, of course, deep and passionate musical genius. And it.s a story that comes together in brilliant and emotional fashion in the new movie Love & Mercy, which had its United States premiere this week at SXSW. Unfolding as a dual narrative, the Bill Pohlad-directed movie follows Brian Wilson through two of the most significant time periods in his life. In the 1960s, Wilson is played by »

Lady Antebellum: Why We'll Never Be Bandzillas

2 March 2015 2:45 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

From the moment they formed Lady Antebellum in 2006, bandmates Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott vowed there was one thing they would never be: Bandzillas. "There was just this moment of, you know what? We've all watched these bands on Behind the Music. We know how this goes, and we’re not going to do that," recalls Haywood, 32. "Unless we love this, let’s do something else. But we love it and each other, and it's been a great ride since then." At a recent Country Radio Seminar panel discussion in Nashville, the trio shared the lessons they've learned »

VH1 Goes ‘Behind The Tweet’ In Ridiculous Mockumentary Web Series

12 February 2015 3:43 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Twitter, as it turns out, is not just a place where quipsters replace movie titles with goats. It's also home to some shocking revelations. This is what we learn from Behind the Tweet, a ridiculous new VH1 web series that provides the stories behind celebrity tweets.

As its title suggests, Behind the Tweet is based off Behind the Music, which offers an in-depth look at the careers of famous musicians. Behind the Music's formula has sustained itself for more than 200 episodes, and as Behind the Tweet shows, it works for satire, too.

In each Behind the Tweet minisode, celebrities, commentators, and a deep-voiced narrator deliver overly serious remarks about silly tweets. The result is a wacky web series that provides a fair number of laughs. Want to know how a Key and Peele sketch launched some charged race relations on Twitter? Behind the Tweet has the (mock) answer.

The 'Saturday Night Live' story told through its sketches

12 February 2015 6:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On the eve of its 40th anniversary special (though the anniversary itself isn't until October), what is left to say about "Saturday Night Live"? There have been multiple books written about the show, several documentaries, countless essays — riding the never-ending roller-coaster between "Saturday Night Dead" and "Saturday Night Lives Again!" — best-ofs, worst-ofs, and every other kind of list you can think of. I don't know that anything I write over the next few pages will provide new insight into one of the most influential comedy shows ever made, but I wondered if you could tell the story of the show — through good times and bad, through revolutions and evolutions and retrenchments — by looking at its sketches. I wound up picking 21 in all: some among the show's most famous, some obscure but important. These aren't meant as a definitive breakdown of the best "SNL" ever had to offer, but as a »

Parenthood Series Finale Cry-Cap: Teary Eyes, Full Hearts

29 January 2015 8:29 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you’re just joining this recap, you may have very recently finished watching the final episode of Parenthood — the very, very last one ever. You probably need a minute to recover. Take that minute. Wipe away the ludicrously large tears still streaming down those cheeks. Breathe.Okay. Now let’s talk. Oh, wait, we’re still crying. It really is hard to stop, isn’t it? Most fans probably came to this episode pretty, shall we say, lubed up in advance. Most of us were well prepared to spend an hour wailing over the loss of our Bravermans while tossing Kleenexes haphazardly around the room just like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally. We probably would have bawled like wee babes if the entire episode had turned out to be an hour-long installment of Behind the Music: The Ashes of Rome Story. Fortunately for humanity, that is not what happened. »

Pop Takes Aim at 1980s and ’90s Nostalgia, Pop Culture-Hungry Viewers

9 January 2015 2:34 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The relaunch of TV Guide Network as Pop next week is an effort to tap into the ever-rising tide of pop culture fandemonium that drives so much conversation on social media.

Brad Schwartz, prexy of entertainment and media for Pop, told reporters at the Television Critics Assn. press tour on Friday that the cabler will function as a haven for the super-fan. Pop, set to bow Jan. 14, is launching with the tagline “We’re fans too.”

The focus is on viewers in their late 30s-early 40s who have nostalgia for 1980s and ’90s TV and pop culture.

“We’re building this for what we call the ‘modern grownup,’ ” Schwartz said.

There’s also an effort to capture the different facets of fandom today, from live events to the hyper-connectedness provided by social-media platforms.

“Being a fan today is an entirely different experience” than in decades past, Schwartz noted.

A Short History of Pop-Up Video

8 January 2015 2:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Thirty years ago this week, Video Hits One began offering the too-old-for-mtv crowd a sensible alternative. That channel would eventually grow into the entity we know today as VH1, and with that name, it would nail that pop culture nostalgia sweet spot with series like Behind the Music, VH1 Storytellers and more. But above all the VH1 hits, it was Pop-Up Video that captured the hearts and minds of a certain kind of media-addled, know-it-all geek. The series first exploded in 1994, and our culture of nostalgia and trivia obsession has only grown stronger in the Internet age. With a hat »
