TV Mvp: Riz Ahmed in "The Night Of"

22 July 2016 8:29 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris Feil on HBO's latest buzzy drama...

HBO has gotten back into the crime genre with the launch of new limited series The Night Of. Adapted from the BBC's Criminal Justice, the series has more than a few shades of Serial thrown in as it examines the gruesome murder at its center. While the new series has already established a patient fascination with glacial detail, what has kept it from becoming a flat procedural is the fascinating performance by Riz Ahmed as murder suspect Naz.

Just as he served up a humane human foil to Jake Gyllenhaal's psychopath in Nightcrawler, Ahmed brings a necessary soulfulness to this otherwise cold world in The Night Of. In the lead up to and fallout from the crime, Naz makes an endless string of bad decisions that the actor effortlessly makes believable. He is a wounded deer in the headlights, alternating masked sexual nerves, »

Steve Zaillian Brings Film-Style Grittiness to HBO Series ‘The Night Of’

13 July 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Night Of” may be Steven Zaillian’s first TV series, but the reality is it’s more like a nine-hour film. The Oscar-winning writer of “Schindler’s List” and occasional director (“All the King’s Men”) labored over every frame of the HBO limited series, from the scripts to the direction to the editing. The gripping eight-part murder mystery — which debuted July 10 and continues through Aug. 28 — grabbed hold of him, far more than he had expected.

“I couldn’t let go,” he says. “I just felt that I knew it inside and out.”

Along with writer Richard Price, Zaillian had planned to be hands-on only with the pilot. But once he delved into the production, he found he wasn’t willing to turn over the reins to another director.

“We both started to feel that the more we did, the more we wanted to do it all,” he says. “It »

The Night Of is the TV Crime Drama We Need Right Now

11 July 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Drawing influences from The Wire, this HBO show boldly tackles race in the face of the criminal justice system.

After a string of disappointments and a lot of drama, HBO can finally rest easy with its promising summer murder mystery series The Night Of. Based on the BBC show Criminal Justice, The Night Of follows Nasir “Nas” Khan (Riz Ahmed), a smart young Pakistani American who finds himself at the center of a police investigation after a night on the town goes horribly wrong. The show recalls the procedural aspects of Law and Order and True Detective, but operates more like The Wire in its examination of race and the criminal justice system through the eyes of the investigators and the accused. The show’s first episode, titled “The Beach,” breaks down the events of “the night of” as Nas remembers it, and then some. In true procedural fashion, we get to play detective and guess what »

TV Review: ‘The Night Of’

8 July 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “The Night Of” begins with an after-school special come to life: A college kid trying to get to a party sneaks out in his dad’s cab and ends up, just hours later, in jail charged with murder. A pretty girl is dead, and the kid has her literal blood on his hands.

For the entire first episode, “The Beach,” the audience watches the night slowly unfold from the perspective of Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed) — a wide-eyed boy so seemingly innocent that he feels like a child entrusted to the viewer’s protection. Naz, as he likes to be called, is feeble with girls, sheltered by his parents, ignored by most of his classmates. It makes the sense of portent hanging over the first episode nearly unbearable. As a funny situation goes south from weird to complicated to outright bad, Naz retains that essential vulnerable sweetness, that innocence that shouts that it must be protected »

Review: 'The Night Of' is the great drama HBO very badly needs right now

5 July 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's his name about a minute into the opening credits of The Night Of: James Gandolfini. That Gandolfini, who died three years ago, is still listed as an executive producer on the new HBO miniseries speaks to the deal he signed way back when he was going to co-star in the project (in a role now played by John Turturro), and to his role as one of the people championing it through development. It also evokes images of a time when HBO owned the Prestige TV game outright, benevolently renting space out to would-be challengers because its position was so strong. That was a long time ago, before the rise of Netflix and all the other Peak TV players, and before HBO skidded into its current rough patch. Executives keep leaving abruptly. Recent dramas have either failed outright (the expensive, star-laden Vinyl got unrenewed last month), imploded quickly (True »

HBO premieres a tense miniseries, season three of the show about Hannibal Lecter is on Amazon and Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s reality show debuts

This is the start of a new weekly column appearing Mondays, in which Brian Moylan advises on what to start watching, stream and catch up on

A lot has been made about HBO’s problems with dramas these days, but you would have no idea that they’re in a bit of a slump watching The Night Of, a new eight-episode miniseries that debuts Sunday 10 July at 9pm Et. Based on the 2008 UK drama Criminal Justice, this tense, brooding tale is about Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed), a Pakistani college student who wakes up in a house with a dead girl, and Jack Stone (John Turturro), the lawyer tasked with defending him. James Gandolfini was originally slated to play Stone, but Turturro stepped in after his death. »

How HBO's 'The Night Of' Lives On After James Gandolfini's Death

4 July 2016 5:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

More than three years after the tragic death of James Gandolfini, the procedural show said to be his passion project is finally due to hit screens. HBO's The Night Of — an eight-part miniseries co-created by Steven Zaillian and Richard Price, with Zaillian directing seven episodes — is set to debut July 10 (and later in the year on Sky Atlantic in the U.K.).

There's no shortage of exciting options for cord-cutters in July (we’ve already rounded up the cream of the streaming crop), but those viewers holding fast to the programming beamed into their living-room sets have plenty to get excited about too. While the major networks catch their breath before launching back into their fall hits and misses, fascinating things are happening in the world of cable.

HBO has historically held fast and run uniformly excellent programming during the hotter months, and this year will be no different, with a well-pedigreed »

‘The Night Of’ Review: HBO Miniseries Delivers The Procedural Goods

29 June 2016 4:53 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Debuting on July 10, The Night Of is a well-crafted miniseries that comfortably takes you to some very uncomfortable places. In the manner of the best of upmarket procedurals and like a thick thriller paperback, Richard Price and Steve Zaillian’s eight-parter based on the UK series Criminal Justice might, as I say in my video review above, prove a perfect summer distraction. The HBO and BBC Worldwide co-production, which has had its first episode on HBO Go and on-demand… »

L.A. Screenings: Foreign Buyers Say What Worked, What Didn’t

3 June 2016 2:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In recent years, international buyers at the L.A. Screenings have complained that Hollywood studios haven’t been producing the type of shows, such as procedurals and light comedies, that work best on free-to-air, generalist channels abroad. At this year’s event, there were signs the studios tried to remedy that, but their offerings still met with a mixed response. “I thought the standard was pretty high,” says one, while another laments that “Hollywood seems to be a little lacking in fresh ideas.” Variety speaks to several European buyers about what worked for them and what didn’t.

Sarah Wright, director of acquisitions at European pay-tv service Sky

“It was a pretty good year,” says Wright, who watched about 60 shows at the L.A. Screenings. The heavy demand for dramas has produced a bumper crop of scripted shows in the U.S., which is “really good news for the international buyers. »
