The Emmys Year of Laurie Metcalf

27 July 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

More than twenty years after winning three consecutive Emmys for Supporting Actress (Comedy) for “Roseanne,” and nearly a decade removed from her last nomination (for her guest arc on “Desperate Housewives”), Laurie Metcalf’s three nods this year mark a well-deserved return to the spotlight, even if the TV Academy’s decision to honor her in the Guest Actress (Comedy) category for nine minutes of screen time in “The Big Bang Theory” suggests a lack of imagination. Whether or not she nabs a surprise win in September, Metcalf is in the midst of yet another fruitful interlude in her long, expansive career, and that alone is worth celebrating.

In “Episode 3” of “Horace and Pete,” the camera settles on Metcalf’s face as if seeing it for the first time. Her monologue, nine minutes in all, isn’t pitched at the viewer, exactly—it’s clear from the start that Metcalf »

Scribe Jenna Bans, who most recently created the ABC drama “The Family,” has set an overall deal with Universal Television.

Jenna Bans was one of the most sought-after writer-producers this development season because of her proven talent,” said Universal Television president Pearlena Igbokwe. “We are thrilled that she chose to set up shop at Universal TV and look forward to a fruitful collaboration with Jenna.”

The Out-Laws: is this the blackest comedy ever?

13 July 2016 5:52 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Women are at the heart of this devilish Belgian drama, which is like Desperate Housewives … with many more attempted murders

‘I called a specialist to ask how long it takes to freeze a large piece of meat,” says Malin-Sarah Gozin. “When I explained that it was 1m 85cm long and 80kg, the line went silent.” Gozin is the creator of The Out-Laws, a devilish new Belgian drama about four sisters who conspire to kill the husband of their fifth sibling, Goedele – only to find out that he has as many lives as a cat. “I had to come up with nine different murder attempts,” she laughs. “I saw a lot of doctors and forensic experts, because it was essential that each attempt really could happen. Eventually, I found out the perfect murder doesn’t exist. Maybe I should write a ‘How Not To …’ book.”
