Eventually, the guest cast included actors like The X-Files‘ David Duchovny, Stranger Things‘ Winona Ryder, Law & Order: »

Peter Farrelly on Learning to Love TV, Plus His Big Move Into Feature Drama — With Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen

12 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There’s something about Peter Farrelly. The filmmaker, mostly known for feature comedies, is trying out a few new things this year.

Those shifts including separate moves into both television – where Farrelly and his brother Bob have rarely played – and dramatic film. At At&T’s Audience Network, Farrelly is behind the upcoming comedy “Loudermilk,” starring Ron Livingston as a cranky recovering alcoholic.

But Farrelly’s move into TV doesn’t mean he’s turning his back on the big screen. “I’m actually doing a film in the fall with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali,” Farrelly told an audience at the Atx Television Festival, where “Loudermilk” was screening. “Green Book,” with Oscar winner Ali and Mortensen  in the lead roles, is currently being prepped.

“It’s based on a thing that used to be called the ‘Negro Motorist’s Green Book,’ published from 1936 to 1966,” he said. “It was a »

‘The Comeback’ Cast and EPs on Another Season: ‘It’s Always a Possibility’

11 June 2017 1:44 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

​Austin, Texas — At the Atx TV Festival, HBO’s “The Comeback” was still very much an object of TV fan adoration. Lisa Kudrow, Michael Patrick King, Dan Bucatinsky, and Laura Silverman joined moderator Abigail Spencer to reminisce about the fan-favorite comedy, and how the show returned to do a second season ten years after the first run.

They began the panel by taking a moment to pay tribute to Robert Michael Morris, who played Mickey Dean, Valerie’s hair stylist and confidant. Morris was supposed to join the group at Atx but passed away May 30.

“He’s the only person who could have played that part,” said Bucatinsky.

Kudrow made it clear that though the show was shot documentary style, “It was not about my experience on ‘Friends.'” She added, “I did send the writers cookies, but that’s because I love cookies, not so they’d write me more stuff.” King »

‘The Comeback’: Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King Tease Possible Season 3 at Atx Festival Reunion

The Comeback” could be coming back — again. And for exhausting as that turn of phrase as become (we’re sorry), there is no sign of series fatigue among the cast and creators.

Co-creators Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King joined executive producer Dan Bucatinsky and co-star Laura Silverman for a reunion panel at the Atx TV Festival — moderated by the self-described “biggest ‘Comeback’ fan ever,” Abigail Spencer (“Timeless”) — and the group had plenty of ideas for how to keep the series going.

“There’s always a possibility,” Kudrow said of a Season 3. “If [Season 2] happened, then it’s a possibility.”

King echoed her enthusiasm, contending that the television landscape is perfectly set up for a return of Valerie Cherish.

“There’s so much aggressive sales needed, it’s like a perfect humiliation trap,” King said, holding up a water bottle sporting an ad for a network he wasn’t familiar with. »

‘The Originals’ Creator Julie Plec on How Trump’s Election Killed a Key Romance

11 June 2017 11:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A day after the presidential election, a writer on “The Originals” turned in a script that featured a female character getting beat up by a man.

There were reasons for this: It was a memory — a flashback to centuries earlier. They were wearing period garb. “The Originals” is a supernatural show, and yes, demons can be awful, even the ones searching for redemption.

“But he beat her up,” said executive producer Julie Plec. “We realized at that moment they can’t be together anymore. And we killed a love story on that day. One that people who watch the show are probably rooting for. Narratively we were going down this path, but my conscience can’t advocate that kind of violence.”

A lot of things changed for storytellers in light of a Donald Trump presidency, but the depiction of females — and violence against women — especially became more relevant for filmmakers »

‘Room 104’ Premiere: Mark Duplass Stuns Atx with Genre-Bending HBO Anthology Series

11 June 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jay and Mark Duplass are creators who don’t like to be put in a box, even if they’re making six hours of television set within the same four walls.

Room 104,” the new HBO anthology series from the Duplass brothers, tells individual, episodic stories in each of its 12 half-hour installments, and all 12 are set within the same cheap, dingy hotel room. The first episode, which premiered at the Atx TV Festival Saturday evening, is a lot closer to Mark Duplass’ work in indie films “Creep” and “The One I Love” than the brothers’ former HBO comedy.

During a panel discussion following the episode, Duplass said he felt inspired by the constraints of the premise.

“I have something like 218 ideas in a Word document on my computer,” Duplass said.

Noting how it felt like he was back making low-budget indie films, Duplass said he wrote seven of the 12 episodes »

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Reunion: Edward James Olmos Says Series was Better Crafted than ‘Blade Runner’ and 7 More Highlights

10 June 2017 8:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s only been eight years since “Battlestar Galactica” ended, but based on fans’ fervor at the reunion, one would think the cast had been waiting 150,000 years. A full Paramount Theater in Austin, TX greeted creator Ronald D. Moore and stars, Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, and Michael Trucco for the Atx TV Festival’s closing night panel.

That being said, the cast was feeling nostalgic, and many references were made to how much has changed in the world since they were shooting the iconic sci-fi series. Blockbuster video rentals, internet cafes, and online message boards all played a big part of the memories, and below we’ve collected seven of the most notable anecdotes.
