Review: James Franco shines in Hulu's uneven time travel miniseries '11.22.63'

38 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stephen King's always been open about his improvisational writing style, and the way he lets his stories tell him where they need to go. Even if he never said a word about his process, though, longtime King readers could probably tell, not just because his endings tend to feel rougher than his beginnings, but because sometimes his stories will take unusual detours as King becomes fascinated by a plot device he obviously didn't expect to find so interesting when he started. Case in point: 11/22/63, his 2011 thriller about Jake Epping, a Maine schoolteacher who goes back in time to try to prevent the JFK assassination. Because the time travel method (a portal in the back of his favorite local diner) deposits him in the past years ahead of schedule, Jake has to fill his days when he's not shadowing Lee Harvey Oswald to confirm that he was acting alone on that fateful day. »

Tim McGraw's Advice on Celebrity Parenting: Shhh, Don't Tell the Kids You're Famous!

12 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

So you're a celebrity couple with kids. When, exactly, do you sit down and have the talk - the one where you tell them that you're famous? If you're Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, the answer is never. "Our kids know it's there," McGraw, 48, said in a Q&A session at the Country Radio Seminar on Wednesday. "They've always been around it. It's just not anything that we've ever really discussed or dealt with. We haven't talked to our kids about us being famous, even when they were little. That's what we try to make it - not an issue. »

11.22.63 Review: Hulu Remakes History With a Gripping Stephen King Yarn

10 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Time is a flat circle,” Matthew McConaughey’s Rust Cohle famously mused in True Detective.

Hulu’s new limited series 11.22.63 (premiering Monday, and airing weekly) goes one better – fashioning that circle out of polypropylene mesh, stretching it over a steel frame and turning time into a terrifically taut, fantastically fun trampoline.

How J.J. Abrams and Hulu Brought Stephen King's '11.22.63' to TV

8 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Stephen King first got the idea for a story about a time-traveler trying to save JFK, he was a 24-year-old high school English teacher living in a double-wide trailer and couldn't find anyone to publish his writings outside of cheap Playboy knockoffs like Gent and Cavalier. It would take 40 years for the author to finally publish what would ultimately become the 849-page book 11/22/63 — but it was worth the long wait. The what-if novel sold by the millions and The New York Times named it one of the five best »

28 January 2016 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine Entertainment, the production powerhouse led by longtime partners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, is poised for a significant expansion, powered by a $100 million-plus investment from the Raine Group under a new partnership agreement, according to multiple sources familiar with the impending deal.

The arrangement anticipates building Imagine into a major media player with other investors as part of the transaction, said two individuals familiar with the pact. The deal has yet to be signed but is just days away from being finalized.

Raine, the 6-year-old New York merchant bank, has ready access to capital and myriad potential partners. While the new allies have no current acquisition targets, they will scout out other media assets for acquisition on an opportunistic basis. In the near term, the $100 million infusion will help Imagine generate new film and television projects.

The new partnership will leave producer Grazer, 64, and director Howard, 61, atop the company they founded 30 years ago, »

A sensitive look at a man's long goodbye to his dying mother, Chris Kelly's Other People understands that even primal grief and fear can't always squeeze out mundane self-obsession. Ably playing the loving son, a comedy writer quietly worrying that his life is falling apart even without having Mom's cancer in the picture, Jesse Plemons delivers on the promise he has shown in so many supporting roles since his Friday Night Lights breakthrough; Molly Shannon, making a terminally-ill two-fer after last year's similarly themed Sundance gem Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, shoulders a heavy dramatic

Caitlyn Jenner's well-choreographed transformation into the most famous trans woman in America hits another milestone: the memoir. The New York Times reports that Jenner is writing a memoir with Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Buzz Bissinger, author of the beloved nonfiction book Friday Night Lights. Bissinger also wrote the Vanity Fair cover story where Jenner publicly came out as a trans woman, and came to bond with her through his own non-normative gender practices. “I’ve also been open about cross-dressing and certain aspects of gender fluidity, and that created a bond,” said Bissinger. While the publisher, Grand Central Publishing, won't disclose the figures, industry executives are speculating the number is a "high seven-figure or low eight-figure sum." Bissinger plans to cover Jenner's entire life thus far, including interviews with other people, from her childhood as Bruce Jenner to her rise as an Olympic athlete and then reality-television star.
