You're the Worst on FX is doing markedly worse than its companion show, Married, in the ratings. But it shouldn't be. Even though Married has gotten more press and boasts a more familiar, pedigreed cast - Oscar winner Nat Faxon, Judy Greer, and even Paul Reiser - You're the Worst is the better series. Starring Aya Cash as romance-averse music publicist Gretchen and Chris Geere as her bitter Brit-novelist love interest, it's really the only show of its kind on the air right now. Here are six reasons you need to start watching (besides the fact that I just really want it to get picked up for a second season): 6. It's from the same guy behind Weeds and Orange Is the New Black. Stephen Falk, who is co-executive-producer on Oitnb and previously held down the same job on Weeds, is also at the helm of this FX series. So »
Amazon on Thursday morning debuted its third pilot season, where you, the consumer, can screen and vote on a total of five new projects featuring familiar faces such as Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy), Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), Dana Delany (Body of Proof), Chloe Sevigny (Big Love) and T.R. Knight (Grey’s Anatomy).
This past April, Amazon customers had a role in greenlighting six series, including the Jeffrey Tambor-fronted dramedy Transparent (premiering Sept. 26; watch trailer), X-Files creator Chris Carter’s The After and the novels-to-screen adaptation Bosch, starring Titus Welliver.

Obviously, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul should team up for new spoof videos every week. That's one way give "Breaking Bad" fans the fix they need, now that the show is over (sniff) and the only thing left to do is wait to see how many Emmys it wins on Monday, August 25.
In the six-minute video, Bryan and Aaron go full redneck as the pawn shop owners and Julia plays herself, pawning one of her Emmys to try and buy an island -- 'cause if Celine Dion has one, Jld should too, no? The guys confuse Julia with Mary-Louise Parker of "Weeds," which apparently happens a lot because of the Louis/Louise, and the three actors go »

HBO has delivered some terrific comedies over the years, from the quirky musical series Flight of the Conchords to biting political satire Veep, and with the cast that the premium cable network is pulling together for its upcoming comedy The Brink, there’s reason to believe HBO has another major hit on its hands.
Now, our anticipation has been raised with news that Watchmen actress Carla Gugino has joined the cast in a multi-episode arc. Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black) all topline The Brink, which is described as “an epic dark comedy.”
As per Deadline: The Brink focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. »

You're the Worst creator Stephen Falk knows what it's like to make a comeback. The showrunner had his first series — NBC's Dane Cook comedy Next Caller — canceled months before it was scheduled to air as a midseason replacement. Four of the show's six-episode order had already been completed before the network opted to scrap the series set in the office of a satellite radio station.

A new study has revealed that little has changed in Tinseltown in terms of offering up more diverse casting choices. Despite the fact that Hispanics make up a huge amount of the paying public, and have shown strong enthusiasm towards spending their money supporting whatever blockbusters are released, Hispanics only accounted for 4.9% of the speaking roles in last year's top 100 films. That figure is identical to what it was back in 2008- despite a strong surge in the Latino population here in the states.
Even when they do get roles, the women in particular are marginalized as eye candy. The study shows that Latinas are the highest-represented ethnicity when it comes to roles that feature some form of nudity.
"Part of the problem is conditioning. When you hear the names De Niro or Pacino, you automatically know it's an American movie," says actor Esai Morales. "But the minute you have »

HBO have got a new comedy show in the works and it has just added a few more cast members to the mix; Jaimie Alexander and Bernard White will join Jack Black and Tim Robbins in the shows’ main roles. The Brink, a half-hour comedy series tipped to be released by the end of the year, will be a humorous slant on the scramble to prevent geopolitical crisis as World War III looms ever closer.
Doesn’t sound that funny to us either but there’s several reasons we’re remaining optimistic. Firstly, the script is being written by seasoned writer/producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim, the former with credits including Ally McBeal and Weeds. Secondly, on board directing is Jay Roach who makes his first foray into directing a TV series after movies such as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Meet The Parents and The Campaign. »

In a deft demonstration of corporate synergy, Netflix tapped new talkshow host Chelsea Handler to moderate a Q&A for “Orange Is the New Black,” the streaming service’s Emmy-nominated dramedy, on Monday night.
The “For Your Consideration” panel, held at the Directors Guild of America theater in Los Angeles, gathered series creator Jenji Kohan and Emmy-nominated cast members Taylor Schilling, Kate Mulgrew, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne and Laverne Cox, along with fellow stars Lea DeLaria and Jason Biggs. The series is nominated for 12 trophies for its first season, while the streaming service has garnered 31 Emmy nominations in total this year.
The raucous panel was dominated by the outspoken and playful cast — at one point Cox joked, “don’t you love how relaxed this is? You’re in our living room!” — while a mellow Handler seemed content to let the stars shine without much interference. The actors asked questions of »

We’ve heard several high-profile names tossed around for the part of Marvel’s upcoming film featuring the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange. Academy Award winner Jared Leto, fan-favorite Benedict Cumberbatch, Locke star Tom Hardy, Deliver Us From Evil star Edgar Ramirez, and three-time Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix have all been rumored for the role, but today a new name was added to the mix, and it’s… Matthew Modine?
That’s right, The Dark Knight Rises, Weeds, and Full Metal Jacket alum’s name has cropped up for Doctor Strange, but not in the way you might think. No trades reported his involvement, and no one has rumored him for the role. Instead, Modine has tossed his own name into the ring, and the actor is campaigning hard for the role on Twitter.

The ’60s were a crazy yet influential time in our country’s history. People were fighting for their civil rights at home while debating America’s involvement in a growing conflict abroad, striving to find a place in this world that they could call their own. Half a century later, not much has changed. So reviving the 1967 American tribal love-rock musical Hair at the Hollywood Bowl for a three-night-only run this weekend has a special resonance beyond the potential to see famous people get naked on stage. And though stars like Kristen Bell, Amber Riley, and Sarah Hyland did not take it all off, »

Editor Bill Turro reaped his third career Emmy nomination for cutting the second episode of the freshman laffer "Orange is the New Black." In "Tit Punch," which we flash back to Galina "Red" Reznikov's (Kate Mulgrew) life before she was thrown behind bars. He was previously nominated for his work on Jenji Kohan's other hit comedy series "Weeds" in 2007 and 2008. In our recent webcam chat (watch below), Turro, taking a break from editing an episode of the hit show's third season, explained that editing is all about the art of visual storytelling or "film grammar" as he calls it. "I always say that editing is constantly chasing the story. I’m always wanting to put the viewer in a place where they’re watching the story. Just tracking the emotion, the tension, the meaning." -Break- Dish all the Emmy races right now in our red-hot forums For Turro, "e. »
