Whoopi Goldberg Discusses Her Oxygen Modeling Show ‘Strut’ and Transgender Casting

20 September 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“They’re the best people in the world,” Whoopi Goldberg says about the cast of “Strut,” her new Oxygen show that follows a group of models signed to Slay Model Management, an exclusively transgender modeling agency.

The first reality modeling show to focus solely on transgender artists, “Strut,” which Goldberg executive produces with her producing partner Tom Leonardis, is breaking ground in the unscripted space and marks the latest series in the recent wave of trans-centric programming.

“Our programming commitment is to showcase people on journeys to find their truth — and be their truth. This is a generation who most definitely aren’t going to be confined by yesterday’s social mores and rules,” Rod Aissa, executive vice president of original programming and development at Oxygen, tells Variety.

For Oxygen, “Strut” marks the first series to feature an all-trans cast, following in the footsteps of its NBCUniversal sister network E!, which »

Jeffrey Tambor Wins Emmy For Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

18 September 2016 6:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jeffrey Tambor snagged a win in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category Sunday night at the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards.

The actor, who portrays Maura Pfefferman in “Transparent,” has previously been nominated eight times and won twice, both for his role on the Amazon series.

“There is no best actor,” he began. “I am so honored to be in this category.” The actor also thanked “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway for changing his life and career, the cast and the producers, “This would be a much lesser award if it wasn’t for your [talent].”

He concluded his speech by speaking up for the transgender community: “To you people, you producers and network owners, agents and creative sparks. Please give transgender talent a chance. Give them auditions. Give them their story. Do that.”

"Please give transgender talent a chance. Give them auditions. Give them their story." – @JeffreyTambor #Emmys https://t. »

Jordan Harrison’s 2014 Pulitzer Prize-nominated play “Marjorie Prime” explores what happens when artificial intelligence enters the home and tries to aid us. It follows the 86-year-old Marjorie (played by Lois Smith in the first production), whose mind routinely falls into confusion and fading memories. But then she acquires a handsome new companion who resembles her late husband and is programmed to tell her the story of her life. The question is, “What would you remember, if given the chance?” Now director Michael Almereyda (“Experimenter”) will adapt Harrison’s play to the screen with Smith reprising the title role and Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”) as Marjorie’s new companion. The film also stars Geena Davis (“The Accidental Tourist”) and Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”). Watch an exclusive teaser for the film below.

The actor beat out Black-ish's Anthony Anderson, Master of None's Aziz Ansari in, The Last Man on Earth's Will Forte in, Shameless' William H. Macy and Silicon

7 Indie Filmmakers Making Must-See TV This Fall

9 September 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ava DuVernay, “Queen Sugar

The acclaimed “Selma” and “Middle of Nowhere” director is a storyteller first, and what better medium to delve deep into a story than television? In her first foray on the small screen, DuVernay allied herself with Oprah’s Own network for “Queen Sugar,” in which she examines the lives of the Bordelon siblings in Louisiana after the passing of their father who leaves them a sugarcane farm.

DuVernay has always been a champion of being the change she wants to see, and her work on “Queen Sugar” is no different. Beginning with adapting a novel from a woman of color, about black siblings, DuVernay also made a point to hire an all-female roster of directors for every episode. She even directed two herself, and the pilot shows that the same appreciation for a gorgeous, almost dreamy palette that “Selma” had, despite some rough subject matter. While »

Amazon Sets September Comedy Push, Reveals Woody Allen Series Title

7 August 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon is planning a big push for comedy series next month with four launches, including Woody Allen’s highly anticipated “Crisis in Six Scenes” and Tig Notaro starrer “One Mississippi.”

The streaming service revealed the title of the Allen series — which stars the legendary auteur, Miley Cyrus and Elaine May — on Sunday at the start of its portion of the Television Critics Association summer press tour at the Beverly Hilton.

Amazon’s plan is bold step to barrel into the early fall premiere territory that has traditionally been reserved for the broadcast networks. Joe Lewis, Amazon’s head of half-hour programming, said the plan was to launch four series in a row to make September “comedy month” on Amazon. “One Mississippi” will kick off the run with six episodes bowing on Sept. 9.

Fleabag,” created by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is set to premiere on Sept. 16. Amazon content chief Roy Price gave the  British star a plug in »

Bethenny Frankel's Health Problems and a Dog Wedding Is Real Housewives of New York City at Its Best

22 June 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Please give it up for Bethenny Frankel and The Real Housewives of New York City for keeping it "real." The Bravo reality series is now in its eighth season and as E! News has already told you, having its best season yet. In the 12th episode, "Always the Bitch, Never the Bride," viewers were presented with the quite the dichotomy: Carole Radziwill's dog participating in a dog wedding stunt with the dog of the Internet celebrity Fat Jewish and Bethenny's health scare with her fibroids. This, right here, is what makes Real Housewives, particularly The Real Housewives of New York City season eight, so great. On one hand, you have Bethenny struggling to keep things together, living up to her tagline, "If »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Le Cancre’

30 May 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Although in English it sounds like a type of sore, “Le Cancre” in French means “the dunce”; either way, it’s an unfortunate title for this most unfortunate feature from the 86-year-old veteran French independent filmmaker Paul Vecchiali, who stars as a wealthy dying man looking back on his life — and particularly on the many women he’s loved. Tedious, self-regarding and often quite amateurishly staged, “Le Cancre” might have earned its Cannes berth out of respect for its director (whose “Please Give Generously” played Directors’ Fortnight in 2004). That’s a valid sentiment, but not one that is going to help the movie travel.

The film gets going with a home invasion in which Rodolphe (Vecchiali) finds himself threatened by a man in a ski mask. This turns out to be his son Laurent (Pascal Cervo), who in a lame reveal is shown to be merely demonstrating why his father »

Nashville Recap: Beginning of the End

18 May 2016 9:19 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Nashville recap here.

The title of this week’s Nashville episode is “It’s Sure Gonna Hurt.” And given the series’ recent cancellation, well, it does.

Not because the hour is kicked off by a cameo featuring the co-hosts of The View (though that is painful). Or because after all these seasons, the show still can’t find something for Will to do other than “be gay.” Or because Elton John guest-stars mainly to prop Gunnar’s ego. Or even because Derek Hough tries to make spaghetti squash sound interesting.

Nashville Recap: Homecoming Mean

6 April 2016 8:48 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

What’s the opposite of the Welcome Wagon? The Get Out Jalopy? The See Ya Subaru? The Hasta la Vista Haycart? Because that’s what greets Juliette when she (finally!) returns to town in this week’s Nashville. Even worse, a red-eyed, out-of-empathy Avery is behind the wheel.

The old Juliette might’ve reacted to this rebuff in a number of ways. She could’ve fired him… then fired whatever employee of hers pointed out that Avery wasn’t on her payroll. She could’ve run out and slept with the closest, least appropriate person in the immediate vicinity. (Rip, »

While celebrities gathered in Hollywood for the 88th Academy Awards Sunday night, entertainers who decided to forgo the awards ceremony joined forces halfway across the country for a benefit in Flint, Michigan.
