Hale hailed the show for its Sex and the City treatment of the classical music world, and for what he referred to as its “tremendous ace up its sleeve”: Gael Bernal Garcia’s performance. Fresh off starring in Jon Stewart’s Rosewater, Bernal plays “a hotshot conductor who’s equally narcissistic and sincere” in Mozart.
At the series’ New York premiere at Alice Tully Hall, Bernal told The Hollywood Reporter he’s become a fan of the Symphony since shooting the series, and hinted as to what they’re up against in the dramedy: “They are struggling to make themselves relevant, and they have that problem because they feel they are only catering to affluent people, »
“That’s really me,” Leslie Bibb tells ETonline of Frannie, the makeup-free goofball seen on screen.
Probably most famous for her two short-lived TV series—Ryan Murphy’s teen soap, Popular, on the now defunct WB network and ABC’s Gcb with Kristen Chenoweth—and her supporting roles in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and the Iron Man franchise, the 41-year-old actress has built a career on playing stunningly beautiful characters with fierce attitudes. But now, she’s letting that all go in favor of a more earnest persona.
“It was scary at times. It was like, ‘Here I am,’ ” Bibb says. Terrified at first, the actress found new personal freedom once she learned not to fight her disheveled appearance. “It was really »

In the vast majority of the television-specific Golden Globe categories, you can count on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to do two things: (1) rally around old favorites — they have a ton of repeat nominees every year; and (2) champion a brand-new show — they love to be first!, as they were with Sex and the City, Girls and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, among many others, even if they often dump those shows the next year. In other words, don’t expect the second or third season of a show to land it recognition for the first time.
The 2014 Golden Globe nominations, announced on Thursday morning, only reinforced these “rules.”

Just as a fair warning, I’m currently writing this review under the influence of alcohol, because The Pyramid didn’t think a press screening was necessary, or provide any Thursday night/midnight public releases before its December 5th release date. While I desperately try not to let such aggravating situational roadblocks cloud my judgement, what’s a critic supposed to think when a December horror movie refuses early screenings, Thursday night conveniences, and even midnight horror crowds?!
Editor’s Note: Decided to sleep off the alcohol. I’m now awake, and after soberly running through The Pyramid in my head, I can still confirm it’s the equivalent of dogshit crusted to the bottom of your shoe that takes about an hour and a half to scrape off. Let’s proceed, shall we?
The Pyramid kicks in after a team of American archeologists (Merica!) uncover a hidden pyramid underneath mounds of sand, »

[Warning: Mild spoilers ahead for Take Care.] Getting hit by a car is not funny. But surviving a car accident with only a broken arm and leg and being trapped in your walk-up New York City apartment, after you manage to figure out how to get up the stairs, and getting your ex-boyfriend to take care of you as you recover all create the foundation for former Sex and the City writer Liz Tuccillo's directorial debut, the unconventional romantic comedy Take Care. It was those atypical elements that Thomas Sadoski — who plays Devon, the ex-boyfriend

Sneak Peek new key art from the upcoming comedy-drama TV series "Younger", based on the novel of the same name by author Pamela Redmond Satran, created and produced by Darren Star ("Sex and the City"), co-starring Hilary Duff, debuting March 31, 2015:

Oh snap! Liz Tuccillo, a writer for Sex and the City, confessed during an interview with HuffPost Live that she didn't want Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mr. Big (Chris Noth) to end up together when the HBO series ended after six seasons. "Michael Patrick King was like, 'Let's talk about if they should stay together in the end,'" Tuccillo, who is behind upcoming romance Take Care, recalled. "We were all, like, fighting and arguing, and I was actually somebody who didn't think she should be with [...] »
From Sex and the City creator Darren Star and premiering March 31, Younger follows 40-year-old Liza (played by two-time Tony winner Foster), a newly single mom who struggles to get back into the working world at such a “ripe” age. When a tattoo artist (The Following‘s Nico Tortorella) convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass for 26 — with the help of a makeover from her Bff »
Shot almost entirely in one small apartment, the indie comedy Take Care feels something like a play. Writer/director Liz Tuccillo puts viewers nose to nose with her characters, and their discomfort feels visceral. Everything seems impossible for Frannie (Leslie Bibb) as she feebly inches her way around her fourth-story walkup. Injured in a car accident, ditched by her friends, and feeling sorry for herself, Frannie can't hobble to her bathroom or peel an orange without help. Desperate, Frannie recruits help from her ex-boyfriend, Devon (Thomas Sadoski) — to the displeasure of his jealous current girlfriend.
Tuccillo, best known for her long-running hit Sex and The City, can craft standout comedy. But the laughs do surprise as Tuccillo jumps from slapstick mom »
Hear this, Housewives: Bravo broke into the scripted drama game Tuesday night with Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, a sometimes breezy, sometimes brutal series about the demise of a self-help guru’s marriage.
In a moment, we want to know what you think about House alum Lisa Edelstein’s latest gig. But first, a brief recap:
Edelstein plays Abby McCarthy, author of a series of get-it-girl! books in which she uses her own life as examples of how to have a happy marriage, family, etc. (The program, executive-produced by Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Marti Noxon, is loosely based on Vicky Iovine’s Girlfriends’ Guide series. »
We're on the set of Bravo's first scripted series, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce.
The show has been described as being reminiscent of Sex and the City, but with a few differences: It's set in sunny L.A. and focuses on a group of divorced women. Star Lisa Edelstein, who starred on House for seven seasons, takes the comparison as a compliment.
Pics: The Exquisite Styles of Sex and the City
"Sex and the City was a great show, and how awesome if we're being compared to them," she said.
Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce follows recently separated best-selling self-help book author Abby McCarthy (Edelstein), who takes advice from her married and divorced friends as she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s. Though it may feel like Sex and the City, you won't be seeing its characters obsessing over cosmos or Jimmy Choos.

Mourn, if you must, for those lost to Game of Thrones' Red Wedding, but while you're drying your tears, consider that those fallen might be the lucky ones. While society conditions us to believe marriage is the gateway to a Champagne-soaked fairy tale, in this day and age, weddings will probably sooner lead to weekend meetings in a divorce attorney's office than some happily ever after scenario. Just consider these 13 TV-wedding fiascos:1. Sex and the City Season 6, Episode 8: "The Catch" Turns out curses don't exclusively target folklore heroines and Cubs fans. When Harry Goldenblatt (Evan Handler) catches a glimpse of his wedding-dress-clad fiancée Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) before the ceremony, he triggers a series of unfortunate events that would make Lemony Snicket cry out in envy. If this is what weddings are like, the maid of honor's speech going up in flames will be the least of your »

If you’d thought that maybe The Newsroom wouldn’t actually show us Will and Mac’s decades-in-the-making wedding, well, you were wrong.
But if it’s any comfort, you’re in very good company: Will, too, is spectacularly incorrect in this week’s episode. “Too big to jail,” Mr. McAvoy? The United States government begs to differ.
Elsewhere, the Jim and Maggie Show slowly cranks back into gear. Still pretty indifferent on that one, but it’s for different reasons than I had last season. (We’ll get into it in a minute.)
Let’s take a look at what happens in “Contempt. »

Let's talk about Sex, baby! After receiving quite the response to our ranking of Friends' couples, we decided to take a closer look at the relationships of another iconic TV show: Sex and the City, where the pursuit for love was basically its own character. Over the years, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Samantha (Kim Catrall) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) all dated, or slept with, their fair share of men, so one-episode love interests were excluded from the list. Included in our ranking? 15 of the HBO hit's most memorable (for better or for worse!) pairings. Of course, ranking Satc's couples, from Carrie and Big (Chris Noth) to Samantha and Smith (Jason Lewis) was no easy »
“I was at a gas station in the Dominican Republic and this couple got out the car and started dancing,” Mikhail Baryshnikov, 66, says. “I was lucky they didn’t pay attention to me. People said: ‘Oh you manipulated the shot,’ but I swear to God, I didn’t.”
One of the greatest classical ballet dancers of our time is telling me about his new calling – photography. This month a show of his digital prints opens in London, featuring every type of dance from Brazilian hip-hop and Hawaiian hula to dancers with the Merce Cunningham company.

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.
Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.
So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.
Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »
