Ellen Barkin Books Guest Role in Showtime’s ‘Happyish’ Pilot

21 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ellen Barkin has nabbed a guest spot in Showtime’s comedy pilot “Happyish.”

Barkin will play Dani Kirschenbloom, a headhunter who works closely with Thom Payne (Steve Coogan). Dani harbors no illusions about the advertising industry, or life, and is described as “the sardonic prophet-philosopher of the project.”

Barkin’s last regular television role was on NBC’s “The New Normal,” and she has also appeared on “Modern Family.”

Happyish” is billed as a scathing examination of our pursuit of happiness, a pursuit that might be the very thing causing our unhappiness in the first place. Filming on the half-hour pilot is set to begin next month in New York.

The series is created, written and executive produced by author Shalom Auslander. Ken Kwapis will executive produce and direct the pilot. Kwapis’ producing partner Alexandra Beattie will co-executive producer under their In Cahoots banner.

Happyish” also stars Kathryn Hahn and Bradley Whitford. »

Sliff 2014 Review – Teacher Of The Year

20 November 2014 3:07 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Teacher Of The Year screens as part of the 23rd Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival on Saturday, November 22 at 8:30 Pm at Landmark’s Tivoli Theatre. Get ticket information here.

Writer/director Jason Strouse’s feature film debut concerning the Us education system may give credence to the old adage that “the inmates are running the asylum”. Truman High School’s a wild place thanks mostly to the oddballs and misfits making up most of the administration and faculty. The main exception being the title mentioned teacher of the year, Mitch Carter (Matt Letscher), who is also the rep for the faculty union. As a documentary crew follows him about, Mitch is at a crossroads. He’s being wooed by a private school lobbying group that’s dangling a big salary in front of him (and he’s got an adorable pre-schooler and a child on the way »

Modern Family: Season Six Ratings

20 November 2014 12:37 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Modern Family saw a dip in the ratings last season, it's still ABC 's top-rated series. There's essentially no chance that it will be cancelled but, will the ratings continue to slide this year? Stay tuned.

Modern Family revolves around three Los Angeles families who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his two adult children. The ensemble cast is Ed O'Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Pierce Wallace.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

13 November 2014 11:05 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The portrayal of the Lgbt community on TV has come a long way since 1963, when NBC’s “Espionage” became the first drama series to use the word homosexual in a script.

On Wednesday night, the Paley Center’s L.A. Benefit Gala offered a look back at the last 50 years of programming and gathered small screen stars including Portia de Rossi, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet to celebrate TV’s impact on Lgbt equality. The fundraising event, held at the Skirball Cultural Center and sponsored by Honey Maid, chronicled the history of Lgbt images in television, from dramas and comedies to TV movies, miniseries and sports.

De Rossi, who was accompanied on the red carpet by her mother-in-law Betty DeGeneres, discussed her own personal struggles and growth as an actress and member of the Lgbt community.
