Emmy episode analysis: Pablo Schreiber calls the shots in 'Orange is the New Black'

27 July 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

After more than a decade of steady TV work, including "The Wire," "Weeds" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," actor Pablo Schreiber earned his first career Emmy nomination this year: Best Drama Guest Actor for playing sadistic prison guard George "Pornstache" Mendez in Netflix's "Orange is the New Black."

He later disciplines activist Brook Soso (Kimiko Glenn) for attempting to stage a hunger strike. But in th »

Fxx’s ‘You’re The Worst’ releases its first trailer for the second season

14 July 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While FX is known to most tv audiences for their dramatic lineup, which includes shows such as The Americans and Fargo, the channel and its offshoot Fxx have also been building a lineup of critically and commercially acclaimed comedies, including Archer, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Man Seeking Woman. Among the additions to the lineup last television season was the romantic comedy You’re The Worst. Created by Weeds scribe Stephen Falk, the series soon found an audience of its own, and was renewed by the channel. The renewal, however, came with a shift from FX to Fxx.

Now a trailer for the second season has been released, along with the announcement that the new season will make its premiere in September. Chris Geere and Aya Cash return once again as the central duo, alongside Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue. The new trailer for the series can be seen below. »

Film Review: ‘A Rising Tide’

9 July 2015 10:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A Rising Tide” is a likable drama that finds a clan of restaurateurs in hot water after Hurricane Sandy badly damages their business. While there’s a formulaic feel to some of it, the formula does work in this modest but engaging feature from writer-director Ben Hickernell (“Lebanon, Pa.”), aided by the conviction that the solid cast brings to the material. Result is a good bet for fests on the hunt for upbeat, inspirational fare, with theatrical prospects likely to skew regional. Home-format sales should be somewhat broader.

Sam (Hunter Parrish, “Weeds”) is rather reluctantly employed at his family’s longtime Atlantic City eatery, where his innovative ideas clash with the traditionalist leanings of his father, Alek (Victor Slezak), who insists they stick with the East Coast “comfort food” that sells. Still, Sam has little choice in the matter, having tried and failed to sustain his own nouveau-cuisine joint in hyper-expensive Manhattan. »

Mary-Louise Parker on Heisenberg and 'comedy in the pitch black'

7 July 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Weeds and The West Wing star, currently on Broadway, reflects on the stage: had this been a film, ‘they wouldn’t have cast me’

In Simon Stephens’s two-character play Heisenberg, now running at Manhattan Theatre Club, Georgie Burns, a middle-aged woman given to confession and confabulation, enters an elderly butcher’s shop and pummels him with questions. “What’s your best meat?” she says. “No. Don’t answer that. What did your other customers buy? No, don’t answer that either. Do you like running your own shop?”

Finally, she pauses for breath. “Do you find me exhausting but captivating?”

The verdict is in: Alicia will soon be guilty of having her sexual needs met.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is joining The Good Wife in the series-regular role of Alex, a calm and experienced hourly investigator whom Julianna Margulies’ Alicia hires (presumably) to work at her new firm, CBS confirms.

Martin Donovan’s Ant-Man Character Revealed

2 July 2015 10:21 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in October, Weeds and Homeland alum Martin Donovan jumped aboard Marvel’s Ant-Man, in a role “pivotal” to the size-changing superhero story. In the months since, a shroud of secrecy has surrounded Donovan’s role. Now, thanks to Bleeding Cool, the mystery has been solved at last.

At the Ant-Man red carpet world premiere in Hollywood this week, it was revealed that Donovan is playing none other than Marvel Comics character Mitchell Carson. If you have no idea who that is, fret not, because you aren’t alone. Donovan himself told reporters that they’d have to Google him once they found out who he was playing, and we’ve gone ahead and done that for you. Be warned, some minor spoilers may follow.

What 'Orange Is The New Black' Gets Right and Wrong About the Criminal Justice System

1 July 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Orange is the New Black" fans know that the series is based on a true story. While Piper Chapman was the name given to the show’s main character — and it was her perspective that initially introduced us to the world of Litchfield Penitentiary — the character was a portrayal of Piper Kerman, the author of "Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison." It took "Weeds" creator Jenji Kohan and Netflix to turn Kerman’s memoir into the series that we have come to know and love.  On Monday, Indiewire had the opportunity to participate in a town hall discussion entitled "What Television Can and Can't Tell Us About Women, the Drug War and Mass Incarceration," featuring Piper Kerman and sponsored by the Drug Policy Alliance. The Dpa is the nation’s leading organization promoting drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health, and human rights. »

NBC’s Bob Greenblatt Celebrates ‘Courageous’ Writers, Producers Displaying Gay Storylines

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Milestones only feel monumental when you get some perspective, and you look back and see some of the tremors that started to pave the way for a seismic shift. The Supreme Court decision is a stunning victory for human rights and equality, but the big shift happened with the American people over the past few years, and there’s no putting the genie back in the bottle.

I feel privileged to work in a business where we can advance the political agenda just because we tell stories. No soapbox, no demonstrations, no voting. If a story moves you, the message gets sent, and the consciousness changes. Sometimes slowly, but it happens.

Over the past 40 years, the Lgbt social and political agenda has been moving forward in our pop culture in many ways, especially on good old-fashioned broadcast television, which reaches everybody, everywhere. Back in the ’70s, I remember Archie Bunker »

Why do we binge some TV shows and not others?

29 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are few things this year that I have anticipated more than "Sense8," the new Netflix series by J. Michael Straczynski and the Wachowskis. Meanwhile, at the start of this year, I still hadn't seen a single episode of "Orange Is The New Black." So why is it that I burned through season three of Jenji Kohan's prison series, and I have the entire run of "Sense8," minus the first episode, still sitting there in my Netflix queue waiting for the exact right moment? Binge watching has become a cultural force over the last few years, but I would argue that it really became a thing with the rise of DVD. One of the things my wife and I used to do together was burn through shows that she had missed or never had an opportunity to see growing up in Argentina. When I was flipping out about the »

‘The Brink’ Review: Tim Robbins, Jack Black Lead Smart Sex, Drugs and Drone Strikes Comedy

21 June 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

HBO’s new series “The Brink” is a dark comedy set in the world of U.S. government and foreign affairs. Creators/executive producers Roberto Benabib (“Weeds”) and Kim Benabib skewer those who vie, lust and live for power. With a strong cast led by Tim Robbins, Jack Black, Pablo Schreiber and Aasif Mandvi, “The Brink” aims to be closer in tone to “Dr. Strangelove” than “The West Wing,” and that bodes well for the rest of the season. As “The Brink” opens, a political crisis unfolds in Pakistan. The pilot episode examines that situation’s effect on three men: »

The Meteoric Rise of the TV Anti-Heroine

19 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The age of the TV anti-hero may be drawing to a close, but the TV anti-heroine is just getting started.

This week, as we welcome back Piper Chapman and her fellow prison inmates (with binge-viewers catching up with the third-season launch of Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black" last Friday), and as we're introduced to Ani Bezzerides -- Rachel McAdams new morally ambiguous cop on Season 2 of HBO's "True Detective," debuting this Sunday -- TV viewers are becoming fully invested in dramas whose female leads are every bit as complicated, fascinating, charismatic, dangerous, and messily human as the Don Drapers and Tony Sopranos of the recent past.

The end of "Mad Men" last month seemed to mark the end of an era, and not just the 1960s as

experienced by the ad gurus at Sterling Cooper. With the departures from our screens in recent years of Don Draper, Jax Teller »

TNT's Proof: Is There Life After... the Premiere?

Although she has experienced great tragedy in her life, Proof‘s Dr. Carolyn Tyler has also witnessed miracles. Not only did she survive a near-drowning experience herself, but five minutes into Tuesday’s premiere, she watches a teenager come back to life after flatlining in surgery.

But suggest the idea of life after death to Carolyn — a brilliant cardiothoracic surgeon — and you might as well have recommended she start DVRing Long Island Medium.

Jill Soloway & Jennie Snyder Urman On Social Media, Binging and Caitlyn Jenner

12 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

They may be two of this season’s “It” showrunners, but Jill Soloway and Jennie Snyder Urman aren’t exactly overnight successes. They’ve both paid their dues with staff jobs (Soloway on “Six Feet Under,” Urman on “Gilmore Girls”) and showrunner gigs (Soloway on HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” Urman on the CW’s “Emily Owens, M.D.”). Soloway’s “Transparent” has put Amazon originals on the map, winning Golden Globes for best comedy and lead Jeffrey Tambor, while Urman’s “Jane the Virgin” earned CW its first Globe noms, and scored a win for breakout star Gina Rodriguez. In a wide-ranging conversation with Variety they discuss the challenges of binge-viewing vs. 22-episode seasons, blending comedy with drama, and Caitlyn Jenner.

When did you realize your show might work?

Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.03, “Our Town, Our Law” piles on the plot twists

28 May 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wayward Pines, Season 1, Episode 3, “Our Town, Our Law”

Written by Chad Hodge

Directed by Zal Batmanglij

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

You can say this for Wayward Pines: for a show that’s built on big mysteries and has a lot of actors that most shows would kill to have around for a few episodes, it’s not a show that has any reticence about making big moves. Perhaps because they’re conscious of only having ten episodes to play around with, or perhaps because they’re cognizant of having a limited amount of source material (not that that stops Game Of Thrones) but “Our Town, Our Law” pushes things forward in a very meaningful way. It upends circumstances for over half of the characters, takes out its second big-name star in as many weeks, and adds ever more sides to the polygon that is the true nature of Wayward Pines. »
