“The idea that some enlightened state, and not just co-option, might’ve created something that is very pure” was an attractive way to end the series, Weiner said. “To me, it’s the best ad ever made, and it comes from a very good place.”
The assertion was one of the highlights of a public conversation Weiner had with A.M. Holmes (The L Word) at the New York Public Library on Wednesday evening, »
Joining Lee Daniels' and Danny Strong's Empire last year after the pilot was shot, Ilene Chaiken brought a wealth of TV series expertise to what became a blockbuster season for all concerned. As showrunner, The L Word creator and Black Box Ep watched with everyone as the Fox soap about a hip-hop family dynasty—led by stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard—came to a temporary but glorious end on March 18. An admirable 16.7 million viewers watched the two-hour finale… »
To many viewers, streaming is just TV on a different screen. After all, you can watch "Seinfeld" reruns as easily on Netflix as you can on TBS. But what if the relatively new medium of streaming TV means a different kind of show?
We're already starting to see something like that in the way that streaming picks up TV's cast-offs. Netflix resurrected "Arrested Development" after its three cultish but low-rated seasons on Fox. Yahoo did the same for NBC's cancelled "Community." And now, it looks like Hulu may be doing the same for "The Mindy Project," another cultish Fox comedy that held out against the Nielsen ratings for three seasons before getting the ax.
What do these shows have in common, besides not drawing enough viewers to stay on network TV? They're all the creations of idiosyncratic TV auteurs, writers who put their own offbeat, recognizable, personal stamp on the material. »

Under the multiyear pact, worth seven figures, the “Empire” showrunner will stay at the helm of the Fox hit, and she’ll be able to develop her own projects for the studio.
“Ilene is about as gifted a showrunner as there is in this business, and we could not be happier that she has made this studio her home,” said Jonnie Davis, president of creative affairs at 20th. “This deal not only keeps her at the helm of the monster hit ‘Empire,’ on which she has done extraordinary work delivering episode after brilliant episode, but also allows us to develop future projects with her.”
“Empire,” which was renewed for a second season earlier this year, is the season’s top broadcast series in the coveted 18-49 adult demo, according to Live +7 ratings. Throughout its first season, »

Chicago – Where did one of the most prominently featured actresses in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” decide to spend the Saturday night of the film’s release? It was attending the Chicago Critics Film Festival, greeting admirers and participating in Q&As – after her two new films, “Results” and “Unexpected.”
The popular actress, best known for her nine year run on the TV series, “How I Met Your Mother,” was born in Canada, like her character Robin Scherbatsky on the show. She began her career as a model, but soon shifted to acting. She had a recurring role in Showtime network’s “The L Word,” before landing “How I Met Your Mother” in 2005. While she was working on the sitcom, she became part of the Marvel film universe with her role as Maria Hill in “The Avengers” (2012). She has since appeared in “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” TV’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., »

The song tells us we can’t always get what we want. As lesbian and bisexual female media consumers, we know this all too well. But it also promises that, if we try, sometimes we’ll get what we need instead. It’s a lesson that applies perfectly to the question so many of us ask every time we turn on our televisions: “Will we ever see another ‘The L Word?’” Ilene Chaiken’s groundbreaking series left the air more than six years ago, and American television has yet to replace it with another show centered largely around lesbian or bisexual characters. Still, the prevalence -- and importance -- of lesbian and bisexual characters continues to improve in broadcast, cable, premium, and streaming network programming. Us audiences have the two loving mommies of “The Fosters,” the scientifically inclined clone on “Orphan Black,” one of the “Pretty Little Liars,” the couple »

Meet Nate and Marni, two complete opposites that have one thing in common: they are both eccentrically unable to find someone that they believe is “The One.” That is, until they mistakenly meet on a blind date that they go on together instead of with the dates they were set up with. After establishing a connection with each other that neither has felt before, they defy logic and reason to date one another even after sharing quirks that would normally send any sane person running for the hills. Now, together they »
