The Brave: Five Things to Know About NBC's Two-Pronged Military Drama

4 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

To explain the genesis of NBC’s upcoming military drama The Brave, series creator Dean Georgaris invokes not the strategic genius of Sgt. Major Jonas Blane or the war-is-hell mentality of Capt. Benjamin “Hawkeye” Pierce, but the poor choices made by one Walter White.

“I don’t come from a military family. I don’t have a political axe to grind. I don’t have a particular fascination with death, but I am fascinated with human resiliency and human ingenuity,” Georgaris (Life of Pi) tells TVLine. After watching documentaries about American Special Forces teams, “I was continually impressed with their ingenuity. »

HBO’s The Deuce Desperately Needs to Find a Moral Centre

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Samuel Brace on The HBO’s The Deuce

HBO’s new series The Deuce is a show filled with bad people doing bad things, with not a shred of light to be seen.

I’ve never really needed to like characters in movies or in TV shows. I’ve never felt the desire to relate to, or appreciate, the actions of fictional people doing fictional things. Good drama is good drama. Right? This has always been my default position, and I’ve defended films and shows that people have attacked or disparaged because they say there is no one to like and no one to root for. This is something that the few people who don’t like the show have said about Breaking Bad. They say that “no one is likeable here, there’s no good guy, who am I to root for?” It’s an argument I’ve never understood. »

Secrets of the TV writers’ room: inside Narcos, Transparent and Silicon Valley

10 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The demands of binge-watching have changed the way scripts are created, bringing larger teams together in one intense space. Showrunners Eric Newman, Jill Soloway and Alec Berg on how their hit shows are written

Every age creates its signature way of telling and consuming stories. The Jacobeans had the blood and lust of popular tragedy. The Victorians had the great social novel. The 1960s had new journalism. The chosen form of our own age is the downloaded serial drama. While the energy and ambition of screenwriters was for nearly a century invested in two-hour feature films, for the past 10 years, ever since The Wire and The Sopranos and The West Wing showed what might be possible, it has been in the 10-hour arcs, and annual seasons of streamed drama.

Those shows – Scandi-noir, Game of Thrones (and its progeny), Breaking Bad and the rest – have created a new kind of relation between creators and viewers. »

Are 'The Walking Dead' and 'Breaking Bad' Set in the Same Universe? Check out the Evidence

19 September 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The theory that The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad are set in the same universe is one of the longest and weirdest fan musings out there. There are variations of the theory out there that Walter White's special blue meth even created the zombie apocalypse. In a recent episode of Fear the Walking Dead, that theory was seemingly made fact ... at least depending how far you want to take an Easter Egg. »

Bryan Cranston on Bringing the Future Up to Date for Philip K. Dick Series ‘Electric Dreams’

19 September 2017 1:27 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Even the future needs to be re-imagined for modern times and Philip K. Dick’s alternate realities and visions of years hence have been re-engineered by Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) and the team behind “Electric Dreams” for today’s audience, the star and producer says.

The writers of the anthology series “Electric Dreams” had free rein to completely re-imagine the sci-fi master’s work for the Channel 4 and Amazon project, said Cranston, who stars in one installment and was a producer on the series. “It was actually a mandate,” he said. “What we didn’t want to do, and we had the blessing from the Philip K. Dick estate as partners, was just do what he had already written and put it up on its feet. Anybody can do that, and it’s not fresh and it’s not new.

Stephen Colbert recruited former White House press secretary Sean Spicer during the hilarious 2017 Emmy Awards opening monologue. "This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period – both in person and around the world," a grinning Spicer, who rode in on a mobile podium, told the audience, poking fun of his outlandish press briefing claim that President Trump's inauguration crowd was the biggest in history. Spicer's Saturday Night Live impersonator Melissa McCarthy was among the many celebs in the audience seen gasping in shock in reaction to his unannounced cameo. »

Emmys: ‘Big Little Lies,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘SNL’ Dominate

17 September 2017 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Saturday Night Live” and “Big Little Lies” dominated early Sunday at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin took home best supporting comedy actress and actor awards for their work on the NBC comedy franchise, which also won for best variety sketch program. But the “SNL” influence was present even before awards began being handed out.

In the highlight of Stephen Colbert’s monologue, the night’s host introduced a surprise guest — former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. In a reference to Melissa McCarthy’s popular “SNL” parody of him, Spicer wheeled a podium onstage. Colbert set Spicer up for a gag about the show’s ratings.

Calling back to his claims regarding Trump’s inauguration viewership, Spicer declared Sunday’s “the biggest audience to witness an Emmys period both in person and around the world!”

Accepting the variety-sketch award, series creator Lorne Michaels referenced the political climate that has powered the show »

Emmys 2017: Politics and a Possible Network Comeback Take Center Stage

17 September 2017 9:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After a long and lively Emmy campaign season, TV industry insiders head for the Microsoft Theater today eagerly anticipating the epic finale of the most suspenseful competition in a decade.

Not since “Mad Men” began its four-peat winning streak in 2008 has there been such a wide open field for the night’s most prestigious trophy: best drama series.

What is predictable: host Stephen Colbert is sure to offer up plenty of political humor in his monologue, and look for winners to also share some fiery political sentiments in their speeches.

During the past 72 hours of pre-Emmy revelry, a strong sentiment has emerged in favor of NBC’s “This Is Us.” There is a widespread feeling — expressed by many with no connection to the show or the Peacock — that it would be “good for the business” if a broadcast network series were to win for the first time since Fox’s “24” in 2006.

AMC Under Fire Once More In The Walking Dead Lawsuit

16 September 2017 11:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If money does indeed make the world go round, then it stands to reason that AMC’s world might well be spinning faster than most – given that it’s the network of note for the massively popular, long-running television drama, The Walking Dead. But, things are rarely simple when millions of dollars and vast numbers of people are involved, and this has been the case since 2013, when former showrunner Frank Darabont and his agency, CAA, brought legal action against AMC – claiming they were owed a bigger slice of the profits than they had received.

Let’s recap, briefly. Academy Award nominee Frank Darabont created The Walking Dead TV show, and was the Executive Producer and showrunner of the series for 19 episodes – until he was fired during the second season. Little was known about the circumstances of that firing at the time, but since Darabont has been pursuing AMC legally for four years, »

AMC Wants to Own More Hit Shows, and Grabbed Ex-Fox Entertainment President David Madden To Make It Happen

15 September 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

David Madden may be exactly the executive that AMC needs right now. Madden, who has just been hired as the new president of original programming for AMC, Sundance TV and AMC Studios, is well-liked, creative, and has done it all as a producer, studio executive, and network boss.

The mandate for Madden (who recently stepped down as Fox Entertainment president) is clear: Like most outlets, AMC Networks is hungry to produce — and own — more of its own content. That’s why, in addition to overseeing programming for AMC, the exec will also do the same for Sundance TV and AMC Studios — the shingle tasked with producing more programming for the AMC Networks suite, which also includes BBC America and IFC.

David Madden is a terrific, thoughtful person and a proven, tested executive,” said AMC/Sundance TV/AMC Studios president Charlie Collier, to whom Madden will report. “He’s known broadly »

Lawyers for Frank Darabont, AMC Square Off in Court Over ‘Walking Dead’ Lawsuit

15 September 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Frank Darabont first sued AMC over his departure as showrunner of “The Walking Dead” in 2013. Judging by the pace of a hearing related to the matter that is taking place Friday, he may have to wait a while longer for a resolution.

Lawyers for Darabont and AMC squared off in a New York courtroom Friday, the latest skirmish in a long-lasting lawsuit in which  Darabont claims that AMC has short-changed him on his profit-participation stake in the hit series “The Walking Dead.” Both sides held out some hope that Justice Eileen Bransten might consider their motions for a summary judgement and rule from the bench. But the judge wrapped the day-long session without ruling – and did not give a date for a next meeting. She even suggested that both sides start working on their appeals, a sign of the reluctance either party has to cede any ground in the matter.

Brutally Honest Emmy Ballot #2: Aziz Ansari Is "Unbearable," 'Better Call Saul' Is "A Small Show"

15 September 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Best Drama Series

This was a really tough category this year. The one that I took off right away was Better Call Saul — it’s what I call “a why show” because, even though they’ve had some good episodes, I do not understand why they’re doing it. Did the Breaking Bad universe really need to be expanded? No. This is a show about small people with small problems. I don’t mind one or the other, but both?

House of Cards is a show that has been good in the past, but it’s just not as fun as it once was »
