Can you give us any scoop on Once Upon a Time’s Regina, please? We need something to cheer us up! –Ana
Well, when I asked The Boys about the Regina/Robin Hood/Marian love triangle presumably on tap for Season 4, Adam Horowitz was quick to retort, “Who says we’re doing a love triangle? »

NBC aired the first promo for the sixth — and final! — season of Parenthood during the Emmys on Monday, revealing the answer to everyone’s question at the end of Season 5: “Is Amber pregnant?” The answer, apparently, is “yes,” as Mae Whitman’s character is seen gazing upon a sonogram of her child with (assumably) Ryan.
Only Parenthood could squeeze that much drama into 15 seconds. The NBC tearjerker returns Thursday, Sept. 25, at 10/9c.

The Emmy Awards are on NBC at 5 p.m. Monday, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Sunday, Aug. 24:
11:55 a.m. ICM Partners’ annual brunch has become a welcome respite from the swirl of nighttime events on Emmy weekend. Waiters with cups of Sangria spiked with apple slices and grapes greeted guests on the steps of Chris Silbermann’s Santa Monica home. The brunch was fantastic — fresh crepes made on the spot, blintzes, all manner of egg dishes and fruit. There’s a reason we skipped breakfast.

Whether you like them or not, Lena Dunham and company are currently prepping for the upcoming fourth season of their HBO comedy series Girls. Today, the network released the first teaser for the season, which will arrive next year, though fans will likely be a little disappointed with the dearth of footage.
Essentially, the clip just shows creator/actor/writer/director Dunham, possibly in character as Hannah Horvath, riding her bike and taking a bit of a tumble. Because even though Hannah takes risks and ventures out into the world, it wouldn’t be Girls if she didn’t crash and burn every so often.
Honestly, the clip is more of a reminder to viewers that Girls is still kicking than anything else. It’s also slightly dishonest – production on the fourth season officially wrapped last week, so the show is actually in post-production right now.
On the upcoming fourth season, »

CBS is getting into the Jason Katims business. The network has handed out a put-pilot commitment to an untitled medical drama exec produced by the Parenthood and About a Boy showrunner, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Written by Sarah Watson (Parenthood, About a Boy), the drama centers on a controversial, outrageous, young tech titan who opens his own hospital with a cutting-edge approach to medicine. Michelle Lee, head of development at Katims’ Universal Television-based True Jack banner, will executive produce alongside Katims and Watson. The project marks Katims’ first broadcast sale this development season. True Jack also sold a

Penny and Desmond still cannot get it together! Lost's Sonya Walger has been cast in a "potentially recurring" role on Scandal, just two seasons after her soul mate, Desmond (er, Henry Ian Cusick), left the very same show at the end of season one, E! News has confirmed. Of course, we know absolutely nothing about her top-secret role, but maybe there will be a boat involved, in order to help us TV journalists with our love of Lost references. Walger will simultaneously continue to appear on Parenthood, whether you want her to or not, as Joel's coworker, Meredith. (Sorry, Julia!) Walger isn't the only awesome TV star heading to fictional Washington D.C. for »

Question: Can you give us a teaser for the sixth and final season of Parenthood? —Ben
Ausiello: Remember that pregnancy test Amber grabbed in the Season 5 finale? Well, showrunner Jason Katims remains tight-lipped about the results, but he can confirm that Matt Lauria’s Ryan will return in Episode 3. Do with that information what you will!
If you’re a child of the 80s, like myself, then your know all about what makes a good movie about friends. No, forget that Friends TV show and its unrealistic sitcom stereotypes. I’m talking about films like the 1985 classics The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’S Fire, or Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982) or even Revenge Of The Nerds (1984). We knew what friends on film were all about in the 80s, but whatever happened to that great emotionally-driven, sentimental sub-genre of dramatic comedies?
I have the answer… thank god for filmmaking dynasties. In the tradition of great directors passing the torch to their children, award-winning director Edward Zwick has clearly fostered promising talent in his son Jesse Zwick, whose feature film debut About Alex manages to instill a renewed sense of sentimentality into the friendship dramedy genre. With a youthful voice, writer and director Jesse Zwick recycles what »

“You know what this is like – this is like one of those ’80s movies.” No one could accuse writer-director Jesse Zwick of being absent-minded in putting together About Alex; this is one indie that wears its main inspiration - The Big Chill – on its sleeve, like a beloved accessory. Luckily, Zwick’s knack for naturalistic dialogue, coupled with his easily charming cast, is more than enough to make up for the film’s lack of originality. While it covers familiar ground, About Alex still feels decidedly comfortable and easy to slip into.
A big part of the movie’s relaxed charm is its cast, culled from some of network TV’s best and most zeitgeisty shows. With Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Max Greenfield (New Girl) and Jane Levy (the late, lamented Suburgatory) all in the cast, it’s almost tricky to view About Alex as its »

When the series finale of HBO’s mobster drama “The Sopranos” ended with a sudden cut to black, some fans cried foul. Others cried genius. Either way, it was unforgettable.
This fall the pressure to “end well” is on for a trio of long-running, critically acclaimed dramas — “Boardwalk Empire,” “Parenthood,” and “Sons of Anarchy” — and the showrunners are planning potent final episodes.
“A great ending stays with you. It resonates,’ ” says “Boardwalk” executive producer and one-time “Sopranos” scribe Terence Winter. “It’s something so powerful that you sit with friends and talk about what it might mean, the deeper implications.”
To increase the intensity in the “Boardwalk” series finale, the season premiere jumps ahead seven years to 1931 and finds bootlegger Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) at the start of the Great Depression, where he sees the devastating effects of alcohol on a broken population.
“This year, Nucky witnesses what he has wrought because of his lifestyle, »

Family: You can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em - so you might as well make a movie about them. That's exactly what Ron Howard did with Parenthood, which hit theaters on August 2, 1989. The story of four siblings working to raise their children right and keep their sanity at the same time, this movie was (and still is) relatable to moms and dads of all generations. Since its release, Parenthood has gone on to inspire two different TV shows, and it serves as an adorable archive of big stars in their early years. In fact, one of Bryce Dallas Howard »
