21 July 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon first teamed up 32 years ago, the door had just started to crack open for female film writers.

‘American Crime’ Star Felicity Huffman on Crafting Her Distinctive Looks, And What About Awards Season ‘Makes Me Want to Barf’

30 June 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Some might see the low-rated but award-winning “American Crime” getting canceled after Season 3 as a tragedy — but Felicity Huffman appreciates the time they got. “It’s unbelievable that [ABC] did it for three years,” she told IndieWire. “It wasn’t just like, ‘We tried it for a year. Oh, it didn’t work.’ They invested and they also gave John Ridley and Michael McDonald carte blanche. The suits never showed up to go, ‘Wait a second. Can’t you be wearing a bikini, and where’s the car chase?'”

That quality is what made “Crime” stand out amongst broadcast offerings, Ridley and McDonald bringing premium cable drama style to each season of the anthology series. All three installments enlisted a high caliber of talent, including Lily Tomlin, Timothy Hutton and Regina King, to tell three different stories about the damage we do to each other and the underlying issues that contribute to that. »

Let's Talk About That "Full-Circle Moment" on Pretty Little Liars

28 June 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to Pretty Little Liars. Going in to the series finale, there was a lot we needed to get through. We'd have to cry at all of the cast's emotional goodbyes. Of course, we had to get our epic "A.D." reveal, and we had to figure out where all the characters end up. With so much business to attend to, it's appropriate to scrutinize every minute of the finale because there wasn't any time to waste. Looking back, there's something we wish I. Marlene King left out entirely. It's a trope that many TV shows have been guilty of over the years. The delight at the end of Pll was seeing all of our characters ride off into the sunset. Aria and Ezra marry and embark on their dreamy honeymoon, Emily and Alison are engaged and raising their twins, Hanna and »

Review: Glow (2017)

12 June 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

If there is one thing Orange Is the New Black taught us, it is that a female-dominated cast doesn’t necessarily equate to a series saturated in glitz and glamour or caught-up in clichéd feminine preoccupations like boyfriends, fashion and babies. Indeed, if you are searching for a new Sex and The City or Desperate Housewives – you may want to turn away now. But Netflix’s new series Glow delivers on so many other fronts – it’s comedy, clever characterisation and overall style – that hopefully you won’t be wondering when one of them is going to go shopping or who is going to bag a husband.

Set in 80s Los Angeles, Glow follows a group of frustrated actresses who – struggling to make it big in Hollywood – are all cast in a female wrestling programme know as Glow: Glamorous Ladies Of Wrestling (a real phenomenon, so I’m told). Contrary to the name, »

Five Awesome NYC Based Reality TV Show Ideas

New York City is the ultimate backdrop for reality TV. Do we ever stop to think that the show “The Real Housewives of New York City” features only one woman, Luann de Lesseps, who is actually a wife, and none of them are stay at home women who would fit the category of “housewife”? But still since “Desperate Housewives” captured the prime time audience, reality shows have gone wild with coming up with storylines for the “wives” of various locales. If these high society women weren’t jetting off to luxurious locales and attending fundraisers they would be quite boring. There

Exclusive: Laurie Metcalf Owns the Stage in Tony-Nominated ‘Doll’s House, Part 2’ Performance

31 May 2017 12:40 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

A longtime scene-stealer on TV -- thanks to her many supporting roles as Jackie on Roseanne, Carolyn Bigsby on Desperate Housewives, Dr. Jenna James on Getting On and Sarah on Horace and Pete -- Laurie Metcalf simply owns the Broadway stage. There’s no competing with the longtime actress, who was superb in The Other Place, performed maniacal laps around Bruce Willis in Misery and recently earned her fourth Tony nomination -- this time for playing Nora Helmer in A Doll’s House, Part 2.

The play -- a sequel to Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 breakdown of marriage and gender roles -- sees Metcalf leading a standout cast, including fellow nominees Chris Cooper, Jayne Houdyshell and Condola Rashad, as Nora returns to the house she once left in need of a divorce now that she’s a successful feminist writer. What follows is a humorous 90-minute debate of society and gender roles as Nora lets her thoughts fly out »
