Based on the best-selling novel by Lissa Evans, the delightful and heartwarming period piece, Their Finest, arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD) and DVD on July 11 from Lionsgate; Digital HD on June 30 and On Demand on July 11 from EuropaCorp. From the producers of Brooklyn and Carol, Their Finest takes place in Britain during World War II and tells the story of a film crew as they create a movie to boost the country’s morale after the Blitz. Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Golden Globe winner Bill Nighy (2007, Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television, Gideon’s Daughter) lead an all-star cast in what Andrew Barker at Variety considers “a relentlessly charming romantic comedy.” Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day), the Their Finest Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
1940, London, the Blitz. With England’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, works under fire with a makeshift cast and crew to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits, and inspire America to join the war. Catrin and a fellow writer, Buckley (Sam Claflin), reluctantly joins forces with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy) on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American public.

Seinfeld alum Jason Alexander’s next show, Hit The Road, has rounded out its cast. Alexander co-created the 10-episode half-hour comedy series for At&T Audience Network alongside Peter Tilden and Dean Craig.
Joining him in the show are The Office‘s Amy Pietz, Live Like Line‘s Natalie Sharp, Summer of 8‘s Nick Marini, Fist Fight‘s Tim Johnson Jr. and Hell on Wheels‘ Maddie Dixon-Poirer. Here’s a first look photo of the cast as production gets underway in Vancouver…
Hit The Road is about the greatest family band you’ve never heard of – yet! This chaotically dysfunctional family of would-be rock/pop stars traverse the country in a cramped tour bus sacrificing privacy, comfort and dignity while in search of fame and fortune. Struggling to navigate their lives and relationships while juggling what’s best for the family versus what’s best for the band, they invariably end up making very unfortunate decisions. Yet nothing will stop them from claiming their rightful place in pop history.
Alexander stars as family patriarch Ken Swallow. Pietz is Maggie, the bohemian, unorthodox mom. Sharp plays Ria, the supremely talented diva who has her sights set on stardom. Marini portrays Sam, the impulsive and endearing son who aims to please. Johnson is Jermaine, the smart, slightly neurotic adopted son who seeks stability more than anything else. Dixon-Poirier plays Casey, the youngest sibling and the moral compass of the family. »

Heading into last month’s broadcast upfronts, multi-camera comedies appeared primed for a renaissance on broadcast. NBC was actively looking for a new series to pair with its forthcoming “Will & Grace” revival. ABC, which was already home to a Friday-night block of multi-cameras, was in the mix for a “Roseanne” revival miniseries, and was pondering a new show starring Carol Burnett. CBS was primed to order several shows as it sought to find a successor to ratings champ “The Big Bang Theory.”
But post-upfronts, only CBS now appears to be a safe place for multi-cameras. NBC found no new show to pair with “Will & Grace,” and instead nestled the limited-run revival at 9 p.m. Thursdays, where it will be surrounded by returning single-camera comedies. ABC successfully outbid Netflix for “Roseanne,” which will air after midseason, but then canceled its Friday-night multi-cams “Dr. Ken” and “Last Man Standing” to clear the way for a night of speculative-fiction dramas »

“I assume this is about what went on at the motel?” John Boyega’s character, Dismukes, asks during an interrogation in the new spot for “Detroit.” It’s obvious he wants to cooperate with the cops and be as helpful as possible. Playing dumb, one half of the good cop/bad cop team shoots back, “What happened at the motel?” But the police officers already have a theory — one that could put Dismukes behind bars. They are looking for a scapegoat, and the perfect person to blame for anything in Detroit during the summer of 1967 is a young black man.
Directed by Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow and written by her “Hurt Locker” and “Zero Dark Thirty” collaborator Mark Boal, “Detroit” is the story of what went down at the Algiers Motel on a particular night of the Detroit Riots. A group of black men originally go there to peacefully wait out the conflict. But that plan goes awry when a few cops — scared of the violence and resentful that their city is now a “war zone” — descend on the Algiers. Dismukes, a National Guardsman, tries to de-escalate the tension. But it looks like his good deed won’t go unpunished; if the powers that be get their way, Dismukes will be solely blamed for whatever happened at the motel.
Alongside Boyega (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”), “Detroit” features an ensemble cast including Anthony Mackie (“The Hurt Locker”) and John Krasinski (“The Office”). The film opens nationwide August 4, 2017.
Trailer Watch: John Boyega Is the Scapegoat in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

White detectives harass a black security guard who has information about murderous police officers in the latest trailer for Detroit, Kathryn Bigelow's upcoming film about the riots that took place in Motor City in 1967.
John Boyega, who rocketed to fame in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, plays the guard. He is pulled into the action when shooting erupts near the hotel where he works; Boyega arrives on the scene in time to find three kids dead at the hands of the police. When he tells the detectives this story, »
This story about Ricky Gervais first appeared in the Miniseries/Movies issue of TheWrap Emmy magazine. When the original British version of the mock documentary “The Office” ended in 2003, creator and star Ricky Gervais didn’t plan to ever bring back his character of David Brent, the office manager with a craving for fame and a knack for being humiliated. But after an “Office” anniversary celebration and a charity gig, Gervais realized that the time might be right for a sad-sack character who so desperately wanted to be famous — hence “David Brent: Life on the Road,” a TV movie in which. »

That’s the general consensus among the writers who led the charge during the five-season run of “Alias.” Josh Appelbaum, who served as a co-executive producer on the show, said, “it would be amazing to do it. The right idea would have to come. We’ve all talked to J.J. [Abrams] about it.”
Appelbaum was one of several “Alias” writers on stage Saturday at the Atx Television Festival to recount the show’s history.
The panel kicked off with the unlikely story of how Sydney sported bright red hair at the start of “Alias.” Apparently executive producer Abrams (who didn’t make it out to Austin) knew he »
