Each year, the Television Academy singles out a handful of programs that have used the power of the medium to “shift cultural acceptance and influence the hearts and minds of the viewers.”
This year, Transparent has been named one of the six Television Academy honorees of 2015. In a statement announcing the honorees, Academy Chairman Bruce Rosenblum explained the significance of the honors: “These programs have enlightened viewers, prompted discussion, raised social awareness, and are sparking change.”
It’s been a big week for Transparent show creator Jill Soloway, who was also named to Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list, where she received a tribute from one of her first bosses, Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball, who saluted her “singular, audacious voice, which continues to speak loudly for all who yearn for an authentic life.” »

Nicole Holofcener always goes her own way. In between writing and directing her female-led indies about ordinary American people — from "Walking and Talking" and "Lovely and Amazing" to "Please Give" and 2014 Golden Globe nominee "Enough Said" — she has directed smart, for-hire TV including "Sex and the City," "Six Feet Under," "Parks and Recreation" and Tina Fey's new Netflix comedy "The Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt." In her first film since "Enough Said," Holofcener has cast Julianne Moore in "Can You Ever Forgive Me," an adaptation of Lee Israel's 2008 memoir about her hardscrabble life as a biographer turned forger of letters of dead writers and celebrities. Israel began stealing actual letters from archives and selling them through an ex-con as the FBI closed in on her scheme.

Few actors make the leap from soaps to smart dramas but Mirallegro has graduated from Hollyoaks to BBC primetime and Bafta nominations. Meet the accidental pin-up who refuses to settle for any old role
For every Guy Pearce or Jenna Coleman, there are a hundred Dean Gaffneys or Letitia Deans: actors who left the soaps that made them, only to become a Ricky Gervais punchline or hobble back after realising ego or expectation outweighed talent. No such danger for Nico Mirallegro. Less than five years after playing schizophrenic emo kid Newt in Hollyoaks, he’s picked up a Bafta nomination for Peter Moffat’s The Village and starred in dramas by Paul Abbott and his idol Jimmy McGovern. More recently, he landed a role in Virtuoso, the latest HBO series from Alan Ball (Six Feet Under, True Blood). Of more immediate concern for Mirallegro, however, is how to handle his »

HBO has cancelled their half-hour series Looking following its second season finale, but will afford the creators an opportunity to wrap up their storylines with a special, Variety is reporting.

I blame Lost for most of the problems with Dig, USA‘s new investigation thriller, but frankly, I blame Lost for a lot of things.
The show is the latest entrant in the limited-run mystery genre, and revolves around Peter Connelly (Jason Isaacs), an FBI agent working in Israel, finding himself caught up in a bizarre conspiracy that spans the globe. Having caught sight of a redhead, who sticks out like a sore thumb among the crowds in Israel, Connelly follows her to the dig she’s been working on. It’s a massive archeological exploration of caves under the city. They stumble on an odd religious rite being performed by people who aren’t supposed to be there.
It isn’t as odd as it might seem to viewers, because we’ve already been introduced to some very “old school” Jews (no, really, really old school) who are fantastically »

On Wednesday’s season finale of Hindsight (VH1, 10/9c), Becca ponders the age-old question: Can you really have it all?

Kevin, the guy in question, also happens to be the source of the friends’ falling out in the future, and Becca’s determined to stop history from repeating itself in 1995. There’s one little problem, though: Kevin just planted a smooch on her.

First let me start by saying thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions, and that I really was impressed by your performance in VANish (review). I thought it was absolutely great.
I've got a questions pertaining to both you, as an actress, and to the film itself, so I will try to alternate them for the most part. My first question is for you, and really, I'm always curious what leads anyone to get into this industry. I know I have a story. Everyone I know has a story, whether they Direct, act, work Craft services, etc. So what lead you to want to be an actress?

How would you react if a loved one who died suddenly reappeared? That’s the central mystery behind A&E’s “The Returned,” a supernatural thriller debuting March 9, exec produced by Carlton Cuse and Raelle Tucker. It’s a remake of the French version “Les Revenants,” which debuted in 2013 on SundanceTV.
“I felt like the French show was really great,” says Cuse. “There wasn’t any reason to change the stuff what was working. To me, the model was the British and the American ‘Office.’ They both started in the same place, but they quickly became their own thing.”
Plus, he adds, “We definitely smoke a lot less cigarettes in the American version.”
Here, star Mark Pellegrino and executive producer Tucker offer more insight into the remake:
What drew you to the show?

Dig stars Jason Isaacs (Awake) as Peter Connelly, an FBI agent who in the midst of a jurisdictional battle with the local police in Jerusalem crosses paths with a young woman who, we eventually learn, is the spitting image of his dead daughter. When Peter again bumps into the redheaded beauty, Emma, they get to talking and then (Earmuffs, »
USA Network’s newest miniseries offers a unique blend of mystery and adventure that should go over quite well when it premieres later tonight.
Created by Tim Kring (Heroes) and Gideon Raff (Homeland), Dig centers on an FBI agent (Jason Isaacs) stationed in Jerusalem who uncovers an ancient conspiracy while investigating the murder of an archeologist. Reeling from personal tragedy, he seeks out a distraction in the form of an affair with his boss (Anne Heche).
Our very own Isaac Feldberg reviewed the show earlier this week, concluding the following about it:
Entertaining but a little too slack for its own good, Dig is perfectly diverting, high-octane fun that’s just a few turns of a scribe’s screwdriver away »
