Epix is getting a new boss: MGM has recruited Michael Wright, who recently stepped down as CEO of Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners, has been named president of premium cable network.

We Need to Talk About Dylan Minnette's Band - Because It's Really Good!

@wallowsmusic A post shared by Dylan Minnette (@dylan_minnette) on Apr 15, 2017 at 1:39pm Pdt Following the colossal success of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, Dylan Minnette is gradually becoming a household name. The 20-year-old actor previously had many acting credits to his name - including starring roles in Don't Breathe and Goosebumps - but it's his portrayal of the sensitive Clay Jensen that has garnered the most attention and a "passionate" following. But in addition to his acting aspirations, Minnette also happens to be a pretty talented musician! Minnette currently sings and plays guitar in Los Angeles-based band Wallows. The currently unsigned band came about after the dissolution of his previous band, The Narwhals. In Wallows, Minnette plays alongside fellow vocalist and guitarist Braeden Lemasters and Cole Preston on the drums, both of whom also played in The Narwhals. According to a statement, the band is named after a famous skateboarding spot in Honolulu.

One Day at a Time” executive producer Gloria Calderon Kellett can’t be boxed in. The writer, producer and even performer has written countless plays, has worked on multi-camera sitcoms (“Rules of Engagement”), single-camera comedies (“How I Met Your Mother”), hour-long dramas (“iZombie,” “Devious Maids”) and more.

Now, along with Mike Royce (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Enlisted”) and the legendary Norman Lear, Calderon Kellett is behind Netflix’s new take on Lear’s “One Day at a Time.”

Together they have come up with a new show that has won over critics, most of whom are predisposed to hate remakes and reboots.

The basic concept of the new “One Day at a Time” remains the same: A single mother raising her teenage kids. But a lot is different.

Tallulah Review

In the last year, Netflix has expanded its focus on original programming from acclaimed series like House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black and Daredevil into full-length feature films. From the harrowing drama of Beasts of No Nation to the throwback silliness of Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, the streaming service has demonstrated an eye for material with a built-in appeal to a broad spectrum of audiences, even if some have balked at their eagerness to enter a multi-picture deal with Adam Sandler. Luckily, Tallulah is perhaps one of the more well-received Netflix original films to date.

Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page stars as the title character, a vagabond who chooses to live out of her van on an indefinite cross-country road trip. However, when her boyfriend (Evan Jonigkeit) leaves her side, a chain of events is set in motion that sees Tallulah developing ties with both an abandoned toddler and

How ‘Tallulah’ Director Sian Heder Overcame Rejection To Make Her Sundance Hit – Springboard

How ‘Tallulah’ Director Sian Heder Overcame Rejection To Make Her Sundance Hit – Springboard
IndieWire’s Springboard column profiles up-and-comers in the film industry worthy of your attention.

Sian Heder’s path from actress to screenwriter and director wasn’t exactly traditional. Ask her to tell you the story of how she went from wannabe thespian to Sundance filmmaker, and she’ll laugh, “You mean my bullshit scam artist bartender story?” Yes, that one.

After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in acting, Heder struggled to find herself — or her passion — in Hollywood. A storyteller by nature, Heder had often been told she should be a writer or a director, but she was determined to make the acting thing stick. But a chance encounter at her day job (bartender) pushed Heder to basically B.S. her way into what would become her first crack at writing and directing. In 2005, Heder completed her first short, “Mother,” inspired by a story that happened to one of her neighbors.

Review: HBO's 'Vinyl' a classic rock drama that wishes it was punk

Review: HBO's 'Vinyl' a classic rock drama that wishes it was punk
HBO's new drama Vinyl is set at a crossroads for the music industry in which its hero, drug-addicted record label president Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale), works. It's 1973, when some of the iconic rock acts of the '60s were still vital — including The Rolling Stones, whose Mick Jagger co-created Vinyl alongside Boardwalk Empire's Terence Winter, director Martin Scorsese, and author Rich Cohen — but were having to make room for new artists and new styles of music. In Sunday's pilot episode, Richie tries to cut a deal with Led Zeppelin, but is also entranced by a live performance of The New York Dolls' punk anthem "Personality Crisis," and intrigued when he drives through the Bronx and overhears hip-hop pioneer DJ Kool Herc spinning two records at once. But for all that Richie is obsessed with finding something new and exciting — "I Want What's Next!" he screams to his terrified

Ray Romano Shot His First Explicit Sex Scene for Vinyl and Will Now Explain How You Really Love Raymond
On the Tonight Show last night Ray Romano claimed that he shot his first ever sex scene for HBO's Vinyl. This isn't exactly true, Romano got busy on TNT's dearly departed Men of a Certain Age and spent a good amount of time talking about how shooting sex scenes made him uncomfortable on his press tours then. But HBO sex, with its penis socks and threesomes, is a step up from basic cable sex, which is also step up from sitcom sex. So we'll just let Ray Romano have his moment. Though, you have to wonder, which of his Vinyl co-stars has had "five or six" threesomes? (Bobby Cannavale. It was definitely Bobby Cannavale.)

A Latino Version of Norman Lear’s One Day at a Time Is Coming to Netflix
This is it, One Day at a Time fans: Netflix and Sony Pictures Television are reviving the classic Norman Lear sitcom for a new generation — but with a twist. The streaming giant has ordered 13 episodes of a new, Lear-produced One Day in which Bonnie Franklin’s iconic single-mom character, Ann Romano, will now be Cuban-American, rather than Italian. Men of a Certain Age co-creator Mike Royce, a sitcom veteran who worked on CBS’s Everybody Loves Raymond, is partnering with How I Met Your Mother and iZombie writer/producer Gloria Calderon Kellett to write and executive-produce the new take. Instead of being an Indianapolis divorcée, the as-yet-uncast lead of the new show will now be a freshly separated ex-military servicewoman trying to raise her two kids with the assistance of her tradition-minded Cuban-born mother (Update: The grandmother role will be played by legendary actress Rita Moreno, Vulture has confirmed).

Is Scandal back to its classic self?

Whereas the previous episode took a significant step in that direction, this week’s hour seemed to complete the long-awaited round-trip, putting Olivia in full, nearly unfettered fixer mode. We had a provocative Case of the Week (an X-rated tell-all by “Kinky Sue,” played by GirlsLena Dunham), and Quinn and Huck (mostly) acting like old-school, not-overly-angsty Gladiators.

The Mindy Project Recap: Credit Card, Baby
Herein, we witness some reasonably entertaining treading of water between major plot developments. But hey, I’ve seen worse on television. For starters, we have Mindy’s line: “I have exquisite credit. I have 25 credit cards.” See, she has just persuaded Danny to move to San Francisco, because we are still pretending like that’s a possibility, and she is still trying to start a practice with Dr. Gurglar. And “the little Mindy” is not what she calls her crotch, despite what she claims in this episode. She is definitely still pregnant — a tiny part of me was still skeptical, but this seems to further solidify matters.In any case, Richard Gant, of the criminally underrated Men of a Certain Age, plays Danny’s lawyer, when Danny wants to change his will in light of Mindy’s pregnancy.

Interview: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andre Braugher still isn't sure he's funny
Andre Braugher has a pair of Emmy wins for drama and one could easily argue that it's a minor travesty he only won one Emmy for "Homicide: Life on the Street." He's mastered a wide range of portrayals of heroes who are stern, capable and flawed, giving them authentic, raw life. And at least for the foreseeable future, it's going to be hard to interview Andre Braugher without suddenly finding humor in his thoughtful and entirely earnest answers. Captain Ray Holt on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" isn't Braugher's first role to feature humor. As he correctly notes, "Men of a Certain Age" offered him the chance to get humane, ego-free laugher and earned him two Emmy nominations, though they were technically for drama. Braugher's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" nomination was his first for comedy and was a recognition of how swiftly Braugher has eased into the rhythm of the single-cam and how instantly proficient
