'Blunt Talk' Creator Talks 'Remarkable' Patrick Stewart and Making Cable News Funny

22 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After turning the journalistic, fiction, memoir and graphic novel worlds on their heads with his distinctively quirkily charming, self-analytical writing style, author Jonathan Ames brought his particular touch to television with his absorbing cultishly adored HBO kinda-sorta autobiographical comedy "Bored to Death," earning praise for unique characterizations and attention to comedic details.

Now the wordsmith is returning to TV with "Blunt Talk," a brand-new, decidedly non-memoir-ish series executive produced by Seth MacFarlane and set in the world of cable news punditry, starring Patrick Stewart as a barely-held-together news personality grappling with his many personal demons while aspiring, usually misguidedly, to do good in the world. To be blunt, Blunt's a trainwreck, and that's exactly where Ames like to start with a leading man.

Moviefone: Where was the point of inspiration that made you want to spend this much time in this world?

Jonathan Ames: I got an email from »

Patrick Stewart, Blunt Talk Ep Preview Starz's Newsy Comedy, Tng Cameos

21 August 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sir Patrick Stewart has made a career of playing sharp, smart men who issue orders, inspire masses and sometimes save the universe.

His latest character, Walter Blunt of Starz’s new comedy Blunt Talk, is… something entirely different.

A British war vet with a nightly show on an American cable news channel, Walter wants to exude the gravitas of a trusted anchor but frequently finds himself too drunk to stand, too high to focus and occasionally — as is the case in Saturday’s series premiere (9/8c) — pursued by the police while nuzzling a transsexual hooker’s chest.

Timm Sharp and Dolly Wells on What Sets 'Blunt Talk' Apart

21 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Patrick Stewart's dissipated, fraying-at-the-seams news anchor may be the centerpiece of Starz's new comedy "Blunt Talk," but he's also been surrounded by an ensemble of characters who despite their media elite jobs are finding life equally full potential pitfalls.

Timm Sharp and Dolly Wells are part of the deep bench assembled by creator Jonathan Ames and producer Seth MacFarlane, playing the show-within-a-show's writer Jim and producer Celia, respectively, and the two comic actors (both are HBO alums, he of the recent "Enlightened," she of the current "Doll & Em") sat down with Moviefone to offer a tease at the behind-the-scenes dysfunction ahead, even as they admitted their own not-so-successful ability to recognize the real-life news references their characters spout.

Moviefone: There's so much talent involved in this project that I can see why signing on would be an easy yes. But creatively, what was the thing that made you say »

Jacki Weaver Learned Some Interesting New Sex Slang Filming 'Blunt Talk'

20 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jacki Weaver is many things, among them a long-acclaimed stage and film actress in her home country of Australia, and more recently a two-time Academy Award nominee for her big screen turns in "Animal Kingdom" and "Silver Linings Playbook." Even more immediately, she's newly conversant in the term "motorboating," thanks to her upcoming stint on the Starz comedy "Blunt Talk," created by "Bored to Death's" Jonathan Ames and executive produced by "Family Guy's" Seth MacFarlane.

An education in contemporary sex slang was just one of the reasons Weaver was compelled to take on the role of the supportive producer propping up a fraying-at-the-seams news anchor (Patrick Stewart), as the actress explained in a chat with Moviefone.

Moviefone: Obviously, things have been going well in the feature film side of your career, but I can see why you couldn't resist this series. What got its hooks into you about it? »

18 August 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Ridley Scott’s The Martian roaring its way towards us, there’s renewed interest in the more scientific angles of space on screen. And now Warner Bros. is developing a drama about a man who helped spearhead that in popular culture: Carl Sagan.Sagan was an astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist and communicator who, through his passion for science and its advancement, helped bring astronomy and other disciplines to a much wider audience through public appearances, books, articles and his hugely successful TV series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which aired in 1980. His work was adapted into the likes of Contact, Robert Zemeckis’ 1997 sci-fi adventure. A frequent guest on talk shows, he also became famous for including messages on the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft. He was married three times and had five children across his relationships.Sagan died in 1996 and his widow, Ann Druyan is one of the producers behind the new film. »

Sunday Ratings: ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Up, ‘Teen Choice Awards’ Steady

17 August 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS won Sunday’s primetime ratings race thanks to “Big Brother,” which remains the night’s top series in demos, while ABC’s competing reality series “Bachelor in Paradise” edged up for a second straight week. Over at Fox, the “Teen Choice Awards” were on par with last year.

The CBS lineup started about 30 minutes late in much of the country due to a late-starting “60 Minutes” (1.5/6 in 18-49, 9.1 million viewers overall from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.) that ran in its entirety following a golf overrun. Ratings for “Big Brother” are subject to change in the nationals, but its preliminary 2.0 rating in 18-49 (and 6.7 million viewers overall) from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. is about average for the show’s Sunday edition.

At ABC, a repeat of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 4.9 million viewers overall) was followed by “Bachelor in Paradise” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall), with the »

The stories behind TV production company closing logos

10 August 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Grr, argh. Sit, Ubu, sit. I made this! What’s the story behind the production company tags added onto our favourite TV shows?

Closing logos have evolved into a TV production company’s tiny stamp of individuality. They’re a single snippet of screen time not at the mercy of network notes, audience feedback or sponsorship concerns.

A closing tag doesn’t need to sell a show, tell a story, or lasso an audience back for the next episode. It’s simply a signature, a few seconds entirely belonging to the creatives, to do with what they will.

As such, closing logos are as self-indulgent or esoteric as the production company wills them. They’re perhaps the only place in television production where in-jokes, family photos, personal homages (or extended rants in the case of one comedy producer) and kid-drawn scribbles usually found taped to the fridge door are entirely welcome. »

The Man From U.N.C.L.E review

10 August 2015 2:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer lead a starry cast in Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Here's our verdict on a slick 60s-set thriller...

The grit and glamour of 60s spy craft gets a revival in Guy Ritchie’s expensive adaptation of TV’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Henry Cavill replaces Robert Vaughn as the new Napoleon Solo, a former art thief forcibly employed by the CIA. He forges an equally reluctant partnership with Ilya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer, replacing David McCallum) a mountainous Soviet spy with severe anger management issues.

The Macguffin’s a missing Nazi rocket scientist and a tape packed full of bomb-making information, with which a villainous organisation plans to build a nuclear warhead. With the assistance of East German car mechanic Gaby (Alicia Vikander), the scientist’s niece, Solo and Kuryakin head to Rome to track down the bad guys. They're led by the icy Victoria Vinciguerra (Elizabeth Dibicki), who, »
