Watch: Trailer for Wgn's New Series 'Manhattan' Talks Secrets and Lies For Nuclear Bomb

17 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

No, it's not a TV version of Woody Allen's masterpiece, but a look at one of the major moments of modern science and warfare. Wgn America's "Manhattan" covers the race in Los Alamos, New Mexico to make the first atomic bomb, and the personal problems it caused in the lives of the scientists and families who had to keep it a secret. The first trailer doesn't show too much -- it's seems to be more of a mood-setter than anything else -- but it does give a glimpse at the terrific cast, which includes Olivia Williams, Daniel Stern, Michael Chernus ("Orange Is the New Black") and John Benjamin Hickey ("The Good Wife"). "In war, secrets can save lives. At home, secrets destroy everything you love." Sounds like a perfect thesis for the subject.  The 13-episode series is set to premiere in July. The show was written and created by »

Dee Dee Myers Talks About Her Transition from Washington to Warner Bros.

16 April 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dee Dee Myers, former White House press secretary for President Clinton, tells Variety that she doesn’t have a “playbook” for her transition from politics to Hollywood. She’ll assume the role as Warner Bros.’ head of corporate communications in September, taking over from Susan Fleishman.

“Obviously I have a lot to learn,” Myers told Variety. “In politics there are a lot of complex issues and a lot of different stakeholders. The news media is interested in everything that happens. So how do you then position your fill in the blank [issue] to meet those challenges? I thought that’s where things were comparable to entertainment.”

Myers first met with Warner studio chief Kevin Tsujihara in December in New York where the two had a conversation about “generally what’s going on in the world,” said Myers.

The two then met a month later in Los Angeles, and then again a »

This Aaron Sorkin Fast Food Parody Is Hilariously Accurate (Video)

15 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In this Sorkin parody titled "The Foodroom," comedian Amy Schumer brings Emmy-winning writer Aaron Sorkin's distinctive style to a fast food joint -- with hilarious results.

Sorkin is known for his critical hits "The West Wing" and "The Newsroom," but over the years, he's become just as well known for his snappy, witty dialogue, walk-and-talk exchanges, and elaborate monologues -- almost to a fault. Paired up with Sorkin vet Josh Charles ("Sports Night"), Schumer skillfully throws Sorkin's brand of highbrow drama into a greasy kitchen and, well, it's magic. »

'Mom': The highs and lows of season 1

15 April 2014 6:19 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Allison Janney adds a touch of greatness to anything she’s in – Masters of Sex, The West Wing, the Mandy Moore classic How to Deal. So it’s no surprise that Janney shines in CBS sitcom Mom, created by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, and Gemma Baker.

Janney’s Bonnie plays mom to Christy (Anna Faris), who plays mom to pregnant teen Violet and adorable 9-year-old Roscoe. Much of the show hinges on Bonnie and Christy’s tumultuous relationship, but the two get along rather nicely in last night’s season finale — probably because they have bigger problems to worry about, »

Five Films at Sundance London You Should See

15 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the latest of our articles looking at the films and events playing over the weekend of the 25th to the 27th of April we look at the hidden gems on offer this year at Sundance London.

While films such as The Trip to Italy and Frank are getting a lot of the attention we wanted to shine the spotlight on some of the films you may not have heard of as yet, but films we think your Sundance London experience should certainly include.

Here’s the first.

The Case Against 8

What’s it all about?

Ben Cotner and Ryan White direct this powerful film about the fight to recognise same-sex marraige in the United States. Taking in five long years of legal wrangling what Cotner and White do so well is to examine the politics behind the decision, essentially contextualising it as well as drawing out the historic significance of the case. »

'Game Of Thrones' Director Raves Over Jack Gleeson

14 April 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Director Alex Graves was tasked with bringing "The Lion and the Rose" off the page (penned by George R.R. Martin) and on to the screen in "Game of Thrones."

(Spoiler Alert: This story contains major plot details from Sunday's "GoT.")

"The West Wing" co-executive producer and director, who went behind the camera for two episodes last season on "Thrones," spent a lot of time working on Sunday's offering, which finally brought The Purple Wedding (the fan name for the scene in Grrm's book) to life. After saying "I do," to the ambitious Lady Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), the ...

'Game of Thrones' director Alex Graves on filming Joffrey's wedding

14 April 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Graves is one of television's best directors, having jumped from "The West Wing" to be a sought-after director of pilots like "Fringe" and "Terra Nova." Last year, he joined the "Game of Thrones" directing rotation and made an immediate impression with his debut episodes, "And Now His Watch Is Ended" (which concludes with Daenerys leading a slave uprising in Astapor) and "Kissed by Fire" (which features Jaime's intimate confession to Brienne in the bathhouse). He returned to the series with last night's "The Lion and the Rose" (I reviewed it here), which features perhaps the longest single scene in the show's history as well as one of its most pivotal story points. Spoilers for that, and then a long discussion with Graves about what went into directing both this episode and "Game of Thrones" in general, coming up just as soon as we give all the leftover food to the dogs. »

The Cure for Pop Culture Exhaustion

12 April 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Burned out by the incessant opinions, snark, and sniping? Drop out of the conversation and binge on something in a vacuum.

While the rest of the world has been busy gnashing its teeth over the How I Met Your Mother finale, mourning the sudden death of Will Gardner, and snickering over Gwyneth Paltrow’s “conscious uncoupling,” I’ve devoted the past week to watching the first four seasons of Parks and Recreation. Many would call this a binge – or a cry for help – but I prefer to think of it as a detox. There’s so much hashtagging and around-the-clock quarterbacking in pop culture today. »

Gary Cole on Veep, Will’s Death on The Good Wife, and the Christopher Walken Rule

7 April 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Gary Cole feels right at home in offices, whether it’s the oval one on Veep or Initech’s corporate headquarters in Office Space, where he created his signature character, the Tps-reports-obsessed VP Bill Lumbergh (mmm-kay?). In Veep’s third-season premiere last night, Cole went full boss once again, with his political operative Kent Davison firing “West Wing Man” blogger Jonah Ryan (Timothy Simons) with the line, “The party is over — there’s a dead guy in the pool, and that dead guy is you!” Vulture spoke with the 57-year-old Cole about whether he’ll return to The Good Wife, how he channeled Robert Reed’s polyester soul in the Brady Bunch movies, and what he means by the term “the Christopher Walken rule.”You played the vice-president on The West Wing. Have you given Julia Louis-Dreyfus any advice about being the Vpotus?Well, no. But that job is really ripe for comedy, »

Black Sails: finally a pirate drama worth watching?

6 April 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Sean Marland 7 Apr 2014 - 06:45

All 8 episodes of Black Sails are now available on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK. Here's what Sean made of the first episode...

When Netflix creator Ted Sarandos commissioned House Of Cards as the streaming site’s first project he used a very simple formula. Essentially he knew people liked The West Wing and Kevin Spacey, so figured a fusion of both would be a banker.

Amazon couldn't get Kevin Spacey but maybe the way people continue to lap up the increasingly bloated Pirates Of The Caribbean film franchise got them thinking.

Piracy has been a risky venture for TV bosses of late, with Sky's Treasure Island and Sinbad adaptations running aground – as it were - in recent years, yet Black Sails will probably flourish where those expensive and confused shows floundered. As a format, getting a whole series as one online lump »

Things we don't admit when watching brilliant TV shows

6 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor Simon Brew 7 Apr 2014 - 06:55

Who’s that? What did she just say? Wait, he’s English? Here are the things we don’t admit when watching acclaimed TV shows…

Omission makes the world go round. Without the art of keeping things to ourselves, most social interactions would disintegrate within seconds. Too much soul-baring honesty would snap the taut bonds that keep us all from running screaming through the Toby Carvery of a Sunday lunchtime jabbing family members with corn-on-the-cob prongs. We’re a tightly wound, insular people, the British. It takes court injunctions and Jeremy Kyle to prise loose our secrets.

Every so often though, it does us good to share. It’s cathartic to confess, between friends, that we’re sometimes a little bit lacking or dim. In the spirit of honesty and self-improvement then, here are the things we’d rather not admit to »

Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney Back with Rash & Faxon in 'The Heart'

3 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following an Oscar win for writing The Descendants, and a fantastic directing debut with The Way Way Back, the duo of Jim Rash and Nat Faxon are reteaming with two of the supporting stars of the coming-of-age comedy. The Wrap has learned that Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney have joined The Heart, an action comedy starring "Saturday Night Live" veteran and Bridesmaids writer and lead Kristen Wiig. The film follows a cash-strapped woman (Wiig) who agrees to transport black market organs with a man she just met (Rockwell). Sounds like there's some flares of We're the Millers there, but it sounds fun. Read on! Janney is in early talks for her role, which would have the actress playing Wiig's intimidating boss who just happens to have two boyfriends. "The West Wing" star can currently be seen in Bad Words, which is also great evidence of her ability to play this new role fantastically, »

Half of Bates Motel Season 2 is already over and we have a preview video for next week’s episode, titled Plunge:

“In season two of “Bates Motel,” executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights”) dig deeper into the twisted world of the Bates family. Picking up from last season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson’s death while Norma’s mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother. Meanwhile, Norman’s brother Dylan, (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father’s killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her »
