The very first shot of NBC’s ’60s drama Aquarius, which premieres Thursday (9/8c), is of Emma Dumont‘s innocent face. When you see it, memorize it — because when her character comes into serial killer Charles Manson’s orbit a few scenes later, that innocence is gone forever.
“Everything that happens to her is so new and shocking and intense,” Dumont says of her alter ego, who also happens to be named Emma. The similarities end there. “She is very different from any role I’ve played before, in that she’s a lot younger than I am, and she »

With Disney's Tomorrowland opening in cinemas across the country today (May 22), here are 11 facts about the actress which you perhaps didn't know.

Brittany Leanna Robertson is the oldest of seven children - talk about sibling rivalries!

I gotta be honest, the words "mining drama" don't exactly inspire a whole lot of excitement in me. That said, this cast does, so I guess I'll just have to put on my construction helmet and see where "Gold" goes. Michelle Williams has joined Matthew McConaughey in the upcoming movie. A project once eyed by Michael Mann and Spike Lee, Stephen Gaghan ("Syriana") is now helming the "Treasure Of The Sierra Madre"-esque tale about the 1993 Bre-x Mineral Corporation scandal, penned by Patrick Massett and John Zinman ("Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," "Friday Night Lights"). Production begins in June, and this marks Williams' third movie in a row this year. She has already wrapped Kelly Reichardt's new, untitled movie and Kenneth Lonergan's "Machester-By-The-Sea." So a lot of things to look forward to in 2016 for fans of Williams. [Variety] »

We know that "Inside Amy Schumer" can do great parodies, and it can do biting social commentary, and that it has a gift for hiding the latter inside the former. That's been apparent throughout its run, and early in the Comedy Central sketch show's great third season, which has featured a dead-on "Friday Night Lights" parody that was really about rape culture, as well as last week's "One Direction" spoof about women who don't need makeup. Tonight's remarkable episode (it airs, like usual, at 10:30) takes both sides of the show to an extreme. Titled "12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer," it's an episode-length parody of Reginald Rose's classic play "12 Angry Men" (and particularly of the staging of the 1957 Sidney Lumet film version) in which the jurors — played by Jeff Goldblum (the foreman), John Hawkes (the crusading hold-out) and Paul Giamatti and Nick Dipaolo (the two bullying loud mouths), among »

Brett Morgen has been called the Mad Scientist of the documentary world with his latest film, the long-awaited Kurt Cobain biography “Montage of Heck.” Morgen certainly lives up to that billing, creating an explosive and totally unique visual and cinematic experiences out of the fallen rock god’s various creations. I have known Brett since we were both 14 years old, having gone to high school and then college together, where we were in roommates. Since the first days of our acquaintance, I have never known anyone with such a firm sense of who he was and what he wanted to do, and that has only strengthened over the years. However, what astonished me seeing “Montage” for the first time was how much his creative skills have grown as a director, so that wild, unstoppable sense of Brettism is now married to awe-inspiring technical superpowers, that have enabled him to produce what in my very-biased mind, »

At its annual "upfront" presentation to advertisers on Wednesday, streaming service Hulu unveiled its secret weapon, aimed at capturing the hearts and subscription dollars of millions of millennials: Jerry Seinfeld.
Yep, the cornerstone of the strategy behind what Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins calls "the year Hulu will break out" is the site's acquisition of "Seinfeld" reruns. Hulu will have exclusive streaming rights to all 180 episodes of the landmark sitcom.
Now, granted, that's a pretty big deal, especially since Hulu paid an estimated $700,000 to $1 million per episode, for a total expenditure of $126 to $180 million. That's a lotta yada yada.
But, c'mon... "Seinfeld" reruns?
Yes, "Seinfeld" is a great show, maybe the greatest sitcom ever. Most of the episodes hold up surprisingly well, considering that the show went off the air 17 years ago. But are two-decade-old reruns the way to grab the primarily young viewers that Hulu and its advertisers want?

Chicago is going to look a little bit more like Dillon, Texas in the final three episodes of Chicago Fire‘s third season. Friday Night Lights alum Dora Madison Burge is joining the NBC series in a recurring role. Burge will play Jessica “Chili” Chilton, the new paramedic that is replacing Mills (Charlie Barnett). As Chicago Fire fans know, Mills left town and headed to North Carolina with his family in last week’s episode, and his absence won’t just be glossed over. Chili will have a difficult time trying to find her place in Firehouse 51, as those who miss Mills, specifically Brett (who will also be Chili’s partner), aren’t too welcoming to the team’s newest member. “They like each other but there’s a big difference in that Brett is still a small town girl who is in the big city for the first time »

“Chicago Fire” is making a late addition to its troupe for the series’ final three episodes, and just in time for this week’s mega-crossover episodes with Dick Wolf’s two other NBC dramas, “Chicago P.D.” and “Law & Order: Svu.”
Dora Madison Burge, an alum of “Friday Night Lights” and “Dexter,” is signing on as a new paramedic in charge at the firehouse at the center of NBC’s “Chicago Fire.” Burge is billed as a guest star for the final three episodes of “Chicago Fire’s” third season.
