The film also stars Keir Gilchrist ("The United States of Tara"), Daniel Zovatto (Laggies), Jake Weary ("Chicago Fire"), Olivia Luccardi ("Orange Is the New Black"), and Lili Sepe (Spork).

Watch: Dad Is A Woman In Trailer For Jill Soloway's Amazon Series 'Transparent'

28 August 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Amazon has released the trailer for its new dramedy “Transparent,” about an L.A. family dealing with the late-in-life decision of their father (Jeffrey Tambor) to live as a woman. Could this be the show that will catapult Amazon into the Netflix-sphere, where original online content like “Orange Is The New Black” and “House of Cards” wins awards and better yet subscribers? With a fresh and exciting cast including Gaby Hoffman, Jay Duplass, and Amy Landecker as the couple's children, Judith Light as Tambor’s ex-wife, and Carrie Brownstein in a small role, it very well could. The pilot debuted on Amazon in February and received enough buzz and acclaim to for the series to be greenlit, with Amazon likely seeing this as a strong contender to become must-watch material. Tambor helped draw the binge-watching crowd with Netflix’s “Arrested Development” revival, and creator Jill Soloway (“United States of Tara, »

‘Transparent’, the new Amazon series from Jill Soloway, gets a trailer and release date

28 August 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The past few years has seen a rise in online streaming content, as services like Netflix and Yahoo have begun to create their own original content as well as pick up shows cancelled by networks. Amazon has similarly diversified into the streaming market, with their own twist; they often release a number of pilots online, letting their viewers vote on which of them shall get a series order. One of the successful pickups from their last set was Transparent. Created by Jill Soloway, who has previously written for Six Feet Under and United States of Tara, as well as writing and directing the 2013 feature Afternoon Delight, the series stars Jeffrey Tambor, Melora Hardin, Gaby Hoffmann, and Jay Duplass.

A brief history of Lead Actress in a Comedy Emmy shenanigans

26 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

At the Emmys, lead actresses officially have the most fun. This year’s make out session between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston is just the latest stunt pulled by the funny ladies nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category. Louis-Drefyus has been the main perpetrator of the category’s goofiness in recent years—but the legacy of shenanigans precedes her now three-year winning streak.  Let’s look back at the greatest hits.

Jill Soloway: The Rules About What Female Characters Would Do Are Super Antiquated

13 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Over the weekend at Amazon’s press tour in Los Angeles, Jill Soloway was asked if she was worried about the lack of sympathetic characters on her buzzy new family drama Transparent. (Vulture’s Margaret Lyons called the pilot sublime, and you can read more about it here and here.) First of all, Huh? Aren’t we past this question? Soloway is a veteran of the closely observed family dramas, having been a writer and executive producer on Six Feet Under and The United States of Tara. In any case, she had a pretty good answer:"The people who I believe in the most create work about people who are real. I’m also looking for truth, and I think that when people see truth in art, it resonates. Rootable women or likable women is a kind of trope that I was asked to be part of [while] working on getting »

"Outstanding Main Title Design," An Undersung Emmy Category

10 July 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

If you're a carbon based life form, chances are you feel a certain amount of affection for the opening notes and images of the main title designs of certain TV series. These things have a way of seeping into our DNA.

I cannot watch True Blood's titles, for example, without singing along "...I wanna do bad things to you ♫" and it would probably take my Emmy award if the Outstanding Main Title Design were handed out only once every 10 years. Unfortunately it has been ripped off ever since and now every remotely creepy TV series aims for a mix of slow-mo vs sped up montage of religious, violent, and sensual grotesquerie from American Horror Storyto Penny Dreadful. But True Blood's titles were the perfect marriage of everything that makes that show that show. It's actually even Better than the show itself.  True Blood lost this category in its »

This weekend saw Clint Eastwood’s stage-to-screen musical Jersey Boys struggle to strike a chord with moviegoers. But for every fourth-place finish, there’s a smash success like Les Misérables, Chicago, or Mamma Mia!—which all speak to the power of a musical adaptation done right.

Below, EW staffers name their top picks for adaptation—some of which have been announced and need to be expedited, others which are still but a glint in our theater-geek eyes.

'Community' coming back? Hulu should revive these shows, too

30 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Remember the days when network cancelations felt absolutely irreversible? I’m sure networks do. But a world with Kickstarter, Netflix, Hulu, social media, and all things interactive, cancelation has morphed from a death knell to a possible new beginning.

As Veronica Mars fans know, if you want more of your favorite story, it’s not impossible to get your wish — and in their case, they helped to make the revival happen. The latest example: Community getting canceled, only to be in talks for a Hulu pickup. If Community ends up getting its #sixseasons, could Hulu become TV’s newest superhero? »

Craig Gillespie On Why Making 'Lars and the Real Girl' Wasn't That Different From Working With Disney

15 May 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On the surface, Disney's Jon Hamm-starring feel-good family film "Million Dollar Arm" has all the makings of a typical studio sports movie, but dig deeper and you'll be surprised to learn the project has some serious indie cred going for it. For starters, it boasts a screenplay by multiple Independent Spirit Award-winner Thomas McCarthy ("Win Win," "The Visitor"), who makes his foray into live action studio filmmaking with this project. Adding to its indie appeal is the director Disney employed for the gig, Craig Gillespie, of "Lars and the Real Girl" fame. In addition to "Lars" and "Million Dollar Arm," Gillespie is best known for directing multiple episodes of the Showtime series "United States of Tara," the remake of "Fright Night," and countless commercials and music videos for artists like Kid Cudi. "Million Dollar Arm," based on actual events, centers on a desperate sports agent (Hamm) who concocts a »

Bryan Cranston & Neil Patrick Harris get Tony Nominations, Denzel Washington left out

29 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — The musical "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder," a comedic romp in which a poor man eliminates the eight heirs ahead of him for a title, nabbed a leading 10 Tony Award nominations on Tuesday. Nominations were spread out for most other shows, reflecting the lack of a juggernaut this year. "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," a cult off-Broadway hit about a transgender East German performer, stars Neil Patrick Harris and won eight nominations, while "After Midnight," a musical celebrating Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club nightclub, got seven, tied with "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical" and a British revival of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night." Bryan Cranston won a nod for playing Lyndon Johnson in "All the Way," and Woody Allen got one for turning his film "Bullets Over Broadway" into a musical. The nominations also made waves for snubbing some big names, including Denzel Washington, »

“Teen Beach Movie” Sequel on Its Way, “Scandal” Loses a Gladiator and “Warehouse 13″ Goes to the Renaissance Faire

28 April 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Scandal cast member Columbus Short has driven gossip headlines in the past several weeks with personal problems (often including accusations of violent behavior). Now he won’t return for Scandal‘s fourth season. I guess that answers that cliffhanger.

Disney is planning a sequel for the cheesy fun of Teen Beach Movie. The original was a hit not only in terms of TV ratings but also sold plenty of copies of the soundtrack.

More Garrett Clayton on TV. Nothing to complain about.

The credibility of the CNN reality series Chicagoland, which claimed to document the real-life challenges faced by the city of Chicago, was challenged by a report in the Chicago Tribune. According to e-mails obtained by the Tribune, producers coordinated with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to coordinate storylines, plan shots and pick subjects who would be featured in the series. Even when depicting some of the difficulties faced by the city, »

How Ryan Eggold Goes From The Blacklist to the Musician of Your Dreams

23 April 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ryan Eggold has raised his profile for playing mysterious character Tom on The Blacklist, but he's about to break out in a whole new way. In Lucky Them, currently playing at the Tribeca Film Festival and in theaters on May 30, Eggold shows off his musical side, with his character, Lucas, singing his way into the heart of rock journalist Ellie (Toni Collette). When we caught up with the actor in NYC, he revealed how his "naive, puppy-ish" character helps Ellie through a midlife crisis, when we can expect to hear more of his original music, and some fun memories from his first series regular TV role on Dirt with Courteney Cox. Source: IFC Films Popsugar: What's interesting about Lucky Them is that it's not confined to one genre - it's not a romantic comedy or a full-on drama. How would you describe the film? Ryan Eggold: That's interesting that you thought it was genre-less. »

Gold Derby Emmy Mvp: Nina Dobrev more than just eye candy on 'Vampire Diaries'

23 April 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

(Pictured left to right: Nina Dobrev as Katherine, Nina Dobrev as Amara, Nina Dobrev as Elena) On "The Vampire Diaries," Nina Dobrev has played so many characters -- and versions of characters -- it's a bloody travesty she's never been recognized by the TV academy. For those keeping track at home, over the first five seasons Dobrev effortlessly portrayed human Elena, human Katherine, vampire Elena, vampire Katherine, Elena pretending to be Katherine, Katherine pretending to be Elena, Katherine's soul inside of Elena's body and original immortal Amara. Whew -- did we forget anybody? -Break- The Emmys usually go crazy over actors and actresses who undergo multiple personalities or play various characters (like Toni Collette for "United States of Tara") so why is Dobrev the unfortunate exception to the rule?
