Shondaland Is on a Roll and Is Now Working on a Nun Drama for ABC

25 August 2015 11:19 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Less than a week after it was announced Shondaland was developing a comedy for ABC, Variety reports that Shonda Rhimes's production company will also be working on a religious drama for the network. The 60-minute project, which comes from scribe and executive producer Alison Schapker (Fringe, Lost), has no title yet, but it will focus on an ensemble of Catholic nuns that have to keep sketchy secrets and contest the closing of their Bronx convent. (Think Desperate Housewives meets Jesus meets Up, maybe.) Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will also reportedly executive-produce. No other details were immediately available — aside from the fact that Shondaland is officially on a roll this season. »

A Desperate Housewife is joining The 100. As first reported by EW.com, Brenda Strong, an alumna of the once-hit ABC series, has been cast in the pivotal role of Queen Nia of the Ice Nation.

In addition to that, her more recent TV credits include TNT’s Dallas revival and guest spots on The Mysteries of Laura and Scandal. The casting of Strong makes it pretty clear that the much-teased Ice Nation will be a major part of The 100 Season 3. The only question… »

Justine Bateman Talks Backstage Antics on ‘Family Ties’

19 August 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Justine Bateman was Emmy-nominated twice for best supporting actress for her role as Mallory Keaton on NBC’s “Family Ties,” which ran from 1982-1989. She has appeared on several series including “Desperate Housewives,” and is currently a senior at UCLA getting a BA in Digital Media Management and Computer Science. She talked about how her character was shaped.

(Dumbing down Mallory) actually came out of working with Mike (Fox), because initially she was not written like that. She was just kind of a normal sister. And they would write these digs that Alex had on Mallory — just regular brother-sister digs — and the number of reactions you can play to that; you can be annoyed, you can roll your eyes, and then I’d get to a point where I’d just pretend it was a compliment. And the writers saw that and went, ‘Oh, s–t, if she thinks that’s funny, »

Demi Lovato hits back at cyber-bullies

14 August 2015 1:26 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Demi Lovato attacked cyber-bullies who made fun of her sister. The 22-year-old singer was horrified when her half-sister Madison De La Garza, 13, received online abuse after posting a video of them together and Demi was quick to hit back at the trolls. Madison - who played Juanita Solis on 'Desperate Housewives' - told Seventeen magazine: ''Last year I got a ton of negative comments after I posted a Vine on Twitter where I was cooking with Demi. People made fun of me, saying I had a hunchback. Demi freaked and direct-messaged people to yell at them, and she tweeted at her followers to stand up for me. ''Sometimes I wish she wouldn't give people attention - I've learned not to - but when people hate on me, she can't really hold back. She's strong and she's a free spirit, and that's what I love about her.'' Although »

Emmy Race a Return to Form for Lead Actress Contenders

12 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

So many factors go into Emmy voting, nostalgia could easily be considered one of them. How great was it to see Claire Danes step into the leading role on “Homeland” after adoring her as a teen on “My So-Called Life?” When voters cast their ballots for Julia Louis-Dreyfus in “Veep,” they likely have fond memories of her time as Elaine Benes on “Seinfeld” — or maybe they appreciated her recent appearance as herself on “Inside Amy Schumer.” The same could be said of “Nurse Jackie” star Edie Falco, who won three Emmys for playing Carmela Soprano, or “The Comeback” queen Lisa Kudrow, who won in 1998 for “Friends.” Once you’re in the winner’s circle, you stand a better chance of being invited back.

And the smallscreen has long been a great place for actors, particularly women. If “new golden era” is becoming a tired phrase to describe the current TV landscape, »
