Eva Longoria Talks ‘Devious Maids’ Backlash, Latino Perceptions at Produced By Conference

31 May 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Eva Longoria is trying to offer new perspectives on Latinos in the U.S. with her involvement as a producer of NBC’s upcoming comedy “Hot and Bothered” and Lifetime’s drama “Devious Maids.”

Longoria, known for her role in “Desperate Housewives,” discussed the issues of perception and reality in her experience as a Mexican-American actress during her appearance at the 7th annual Produced By L.A. conference Sunday at Paramount Studios. Longoria has revved up her activity as a producer in recent years with a host of projects flowing through her Unbelievable Entertainment banner.

Talking with moderator Marc Cherry, creator/exec producer of “Desperate Housewives” and “Devious Maids,” Longoria noted that Hollywood execs often assume multicultural stars can use accents or speak languages other than English.

“It’s a lot of identity crisis for my character, which is rooted in my life story,” Longoria said about playing a telenovela »

Devious Maids Season 3 Review

31 May 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided for reviewing purposes prior to broadcast.

Picking up seconds after last year’s wedding massacre cliffhanger, the third season of Devious Maids doesn’t waste any time in not only answering major questions from that finale, but in setting up the big mysteries of the new season as well.  There’s a lot that can be said about the show’s inherently cheesy dialogue, over-the-top twists, and blatant similarity to creator Marc Cherry’s other show about a group of woman dealing with not-so-idyllic problems in beautifully idyllic settings, and most of it surprisingly positive. Devious Maids has yet to reach the embarrassingly good heights of Desperate Housewives, but as a 13-hour slice of effervescent summer fun, you could do a whole lot worse.

The show deals with its use of a classic cliffhanger (who got shot?) by using the just-as-classic premiere device of a flash-forward. »

‘Empire’ Season 2 Premiere Date Announced

29 May 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two months after “Empire” wrapped its rookie season, writers of the Fox drama on Friday announced via Twitter the date of the show’s return — Sept. 23.

https://twitter.com/EmpireWriters/status/604341547639812096

The start date doesn’t qualify as a shocker, as the net announced its plans to bring back the ratings juggernaut in the fall and this is the first Wednesday of the television season. “Empire” is expected to air something of a split season during the 2015-16 campaign, with at least half of the show’s planned 18 episodes saved for 2016.

The soap became appointment viewing during the course of its 12-episode run and finished as the season’s No. 1 broadcast entertainment series in 18-49. It grew nearly every week in the demo and finished with the highest average for any broadcast drama since ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” and “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2007-08, and the highest for any new »

Happy Birthday, Danny Elfman

28 May 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today, composer Danny Elfman turns 62. Elfman is one of the most brilliant and prolific film composers of our time (if not The most), so to celebrate his 62nd birthday, let’s take a look at his greatest hits: •Ever heard of a little show called “The Simpsons”? Well, Danny Elfman composed the music for that show, as well as for all “Simpsons” movies and video games. •”Silver Linings Playbook” is a masterpiece, in my humble opinion. Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, David O’Russell; these are the names credited for this remarkable film. The truth is, “Silver Linings” might have fallen flat if it weren’t for Danny Elfman, who worked as score producer on the greatest film of 2012. •Without the score composed by Danny Elfman, “Desperate Housewives” would be just a bunch of housewives lying to each other, housewives killing people, housewives just being overall desperate.

Eva Longoria skin care secrets

27 May 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Eva Longoria is sharing her skin care secrets, but admits she feels ''lucky'' to have good genes. The former 'Desperate Housewives' actress has revealed she feels privileged to have inherited olive skin and a flawless complexion from her Mexican American parents, Ella and Enrique, which has kept her looking youthful. She said: ''I'm lucky to have good genetics and great olive skin, so the [ageing] process is not taking its toll on me - yet! That's not to say I won't have thoughts on it when it happens, but it's not on the forefront right now.'' The brunette beauty added she is happy to embrace growing older. She said: ''I am welcoming it. I associate ageing with wisdom, so the more wisdom I gain, the better.'' Eva also puts her natural glow down to her beauty regime and swears by using serums and sunblock everyday to protect her skin. »

Is Supergirl the Earliest Pilot Leak Ever?

22 May 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Faster than a speeding bullet, the pilot for CBS’ Supergirl has illegally leaked onto file-sharing sites.

VideosCBS’ Supergirl Trailer Debuts

CBS ordered the buzzy superhero drama to series barely two weeks ago, and only unveiled the first footage last Wednesday, May 13, during its annual Upfront presentation to advertisers.

The leaking of pilots for an upcoming TV season is nothing new, though Supergirl‘s super-fast pirating would seem to set a land-speed record for a high-profile project. Last summer, for example, the pilots for The Flash and Constantine — also comics book-based fare appealing to a certain crafty, passionate crowd — didn’t »

Eva Longoria wants fitness empire

22 May 2015 1:01 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Eva Longoria wants to launch her own fitness empire.

A source close to the 39-year-old actress said: ''Eva noticed that there's a major lack of health resources for Latinas. So she wants to work with chefs at her restaurant, Beso, to produce video segments about diet and nutrition in addition to her own Jane Fonda-style exercise DVDs.'' The brunette beauty is rumoured to be in talks with a number of companies to help her move into the realm of fitness. The insider told the Us edition of Ok! magazine: ''Netflix is already looking at backing her. Eva sees it as a real moneymaker.'' The actress previously admitted exercise is »

Ratings: NBC, CBS Win Season Titles; ABC Comes On Strong

19 May 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC and CBS were the season’s ratings winners in key demo categories, and Fox had the hottest new show in years, but the best story of the 2014-15 television season just might have belonged to ABC.

The Alphabet emerged as the only major network to draw a larger young-adult audience this season than last, thanks in large part to a strong rookie class that included hits “How to Get Away With Murder” and “Black-ish” as well as other solid newcomers like “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Secrets and Lies.” “The Goldbergs” blossomed in in its second year, while veterans like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” “Modern Family” and “Shark Tank” also continued to produce.

CBS introduced new drama hit “Scorpion” and renewed four other first-year shows, while Fox launched megahit “Empire” and solid newcomer “Gotham” and the CW discovered its biggest hit to date, “The Flash.” NBC, on the other hand, »

Cam Girls Web Series Takes You Inside The Lives Of The World’s… Newest Profession

14 May 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The world of Web Series is about as diverse as it gets. From format, to genre, to production quality, they’re everywhere, and some of them take the opportunity to go for a risk.

Being un-Google-able is a risk, as is being a fairly tame show with a name like Cam Girls, but the series, which hits June 1st is surprisingly layered for something that only has 4-6 minutes to get things done.

The story revolves around Liv (Kate Bond), and the journey that leads her to becoming a Cam Girl. As she mentions in the trailer, she starts at the beginning. It’s actually a well-developed road that highlights the odd, and unforeseeable turns our lives may take. A new job, a new friend, a friend’s husband who has spy cams all over his house… the usual.

The show isn’t exactly comedic, or dramatic, and those who »
