Oscar Nominees Blur Lines Between Big and Small Screens

5 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the divide between film and TV becomes increasingly difficult to discern, it’s far less uncommon to see well-known TV actors playing juicy roles on the big screen. And now that TV is no longer the death knell it once was for performers hoping for a film career, some of the industry’s best talent is emanating from TV. It’s also the medium actors are most frequently recognized for. As frontrunner supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons told Variety last year before “Whiplash,” with his breakthrough role, opened, “It’s rather sobering to realize more people have seen my Farmers Insurance commercials than everything put together.”

Among the year’s acting Oscar nominees, several are known for their series work, including Steve Carell (NBC’s “The Office”), Benedict Cumberbatch (PBS’ “Sherlock”), J.K. Simmons (TNT’s “The Closer,” NBC’s “Growing Up Fisher”), and Laura Dern (HBO’s “Enlightened”). Patricia Arquette »

How Indie Filmmakers Have Transformed TV

30 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a paradox. Independent films -- the kind that are often dramas or comedies about everyday people, rather than superheroes -- have all but vanished from theaters, which now show mostly popcorn action blockbusters. And yet, many of the filmmakers who used to make those indie movies have found a home on TV, where that same character-driven sensibility makes their work a critical and commercial success.

Exhibit A is surely Lena Dunham. Her 2010 movie "Tiny Furniture" never played in more than 21 theaters or sold as much as $400,000 in tickets, but her HBO series "Girls," which has a similar directorial and thematic approach, has made her a star.

In recent years, a number of her fellow indie directors and writers have made the same transition, from the art-house to your living room, mostly via premium cable or streaming outlets Netflix and Amazon. Alongside Dunham at HBO, there's Cary Joji Fukunaga ("True Detective »

Looking dapper as always, Patrick Stewart.

Star Trek: The Next Generation” alum Stewart began production on the Starz series “Blunt Talk” — which counts “Family Guy” honcho among its executive producers — this week, and the network has released a pair of photos as a first look at what’s to come.

‘Blunt Talk': First Look At Patrick Stewart In Starz’s Scripted Comedy

28 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blunt Talk,” from exec producer Seth MacFarlane and starring Patrick Stewart, began production this week in Los Angeles on the first 10-episode season. Starz released the first photos from the scripted comedy Wednesday.

The half-hour comedy from Media Rights Capital (Mrc) and series creator Jonathan Ames who is exec producing with MacFarlane, Tristram Shapeero and Stephanie Davis was given a 20-episode, two season commitment.

“It was a great first day on the set of ‘Blunt Talk,'” said Ames. “Patrick Stewart was noble, loony, and heroic. And that was before the first shot. Later, in character as Walter Blunt, he was all those things and more.”

The original series, set in L.A., follows Walter Blunt (Stewart), a Brit who’s intent on taking over American cable news, and the fallout from his unintentional, yet misguided decision making both on air and off. Besieged by his network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, »

15 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Long (well, not really so long ago for some of these actors) before these actors were waking up to phone calls and texts from agents, managers, publicists, friends, etc., all congratulating them on their Oscar nomination, they were toiling away on TV. Yes, television! But the divide between movies and TV is shrinking and some of these actors, like Wild's Laura Dern in the beloved HBO series Enlightened, did some of their best work on the small screen. Check out some key and early TV roles for most of this year's lead and supporting actors in the 2015 Oscar race below!

NBC Orders 3 Comedy Pilots From ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ ‘Mad TV,’ ‘Office’ Producers

14 January 2015 7:40 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC has ordered three new pilots from Universal Television. From producers behind “Hot in Cleveland,” “Mad TV” and “The Office,” they center on employees of a big box store, empty-nesters and a neighborhood blogger.

From Universal and writers/excecutive producers Steven Cragg (“Mad TV”) and Brian Bradley (“Scrubs”), with executive producer David Janollari (“Six Feet Under”), comes single-cam comedy “How We Live.” It follows an anthropologist blogger who moves to the suburbs with his wife and quickly discovers the fascinating habitat and mating rituals of a new undiscovered species: his suburban friends and neighbors.

‘Togetherness,’ ‘Looking’ Gives HBO’s Sunday Schedule Indie Vibe

9 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lena Dunham is getting some new neighbors. HBO launches something of an indie spirit night Sunday, Jan. 11, when “Girls” returns for a fourth season, followed by a pair of original series sprung from the same singular, low-budget film roots that led Dunham — and her $65,000 SXSW phenomenon “Tiny Furniture” — to stardom.

First up after “Girls” is “Togetherness,” a new comedy from indie veterans Jay and Mark Duplass, about four forty-somethings, one a couple, living together, starring Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey and Amanda Peet. That show is followed by a second season of “Looking,” the San Francisco-set dramedy co-created by writer Michael Lannan and director Andrew Haigh, whose romantic drama “Weekend” won an audience award for emerging visions at the 2011 SXSW fest.

“We always think, ‘What can we do in our space that feels distinct, different and unlike the fare you’re getting on ad-supported television?’ ” says HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo. »
