Casting Net: Mike Epps may play Richard Pryor in Lee Daniels' biopic

12 August 2014 5:29 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler). Epps was previously signed on to play Pryor back in 2005 and met with the late comedian while he was still alive to prepare for the role, but that project fell through. Epps reportedly beat out actors Michael B. Jordan, Nick Cannon, and Marlon Wayans after Wayans had also been previously attached to another Pryor film, this one »

27 July 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

When it comes to predicting Emmys, we might have a thing or two to learn from our Top 24 Users who reaped the best scores among all of our site readers last year. Out of those two dozen pundits, 19 scored better than any of our vaunted Experts and Editors, while the other five tied our very best Experts. And we all remember how many surprises there were in 2013. (Click here for our Top 24's current Emmy predictions.) -Break- Consider Philip T. In 2013, he tied two other users as Gold Derby's best Emmy predictor with 57% accuracy. He was one of the few to foresee the upset wins by Laura Linney (Movie/Mini Actress, "The Big C: Hereafter"), Ellen Burstyn (Movie/Mini Supporting Actress, "Political Animals"), and "Modern Family" for Best Comedy Directing. This year, he's going out on a limb for Josh Charles ("The Good Wife") for Drama Supporting Actor and "True Detective" for Best Drama Series, »

Five Easy Ways to Fix the Emmys

10 July 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Emmy nominations were announced this morning and as usual, there were a number of snubs and surprises, which the Internet collectively whined about this morning. Rather than continue to mourn the lack of a nomination for Tatiana Maslany (which I admittedly complained about as well), actual solutions need to be pitched. Sadly, “chain Emmy voters to a chair and make them actually watch Orphan Black” seems somewhat implausible and definitely criminal, so here are five reasonable and seemingly easy solutions the Emmys should consider next year.

 

1. A Dramedy Category

One of the most-nominated newcomers announced on Emmy morning was Orange is the New Black, which with 12 total nods amassed more than any other comedy, including Modern Family, Veep, and The Big Bang Theory. Yet most fans of the show would hesitate to classify it as a comedy. Compared to most of the other shows in the category, it certainly does not fit the pattern. »

Will the Female-Driven Drama Chasing Life Dare to Get Real About Leukemia?

19 June 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Cancer is having a definite pop-cultural moment, given The Fault in Our Stars' recent trouncing of Tom Cruise at the box office. Lucky timing for Chasing Life, the new ABC Family drama that premiered last Tuesday. It centers on 24-year-old April Carver (Italia Ricci), a budding Boston journalist who's stunned when she gets a leukemia diagnosis.I like that this show exists, even if it does bear the overly polished sheen endemic to this network. It's a positive step forward for a show to feature a character this young facing a terminal illness. Laura Linney was predictably amazing in The Big C, but her character was of an age that we more or less expect to be dealing with stuff like this. We recently saw Miss Rosa on Orange is the New Black going for her chemo treatment, but again, she's on the older side. We occasionally see the »

Emmy Preview: Category-Shifting Is the Big Story In This Year’s Race

3 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This Emmy season, there’s going to be more of everything: more campaigning, more events and more media coverage. The reason: more worthy contenders. And that explains another increase: more jockeying.

The frenzy kicked off when HBO announced that “True Detective” is competing as a drama, not a miniseries, the first in a flood of category-shifting. “Orange Is the New Black” and “Shameless” were defined as comedies. “Treme,” formerly a drama series, moved to mini. Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes in “Orange Is the New Black”), Dan Bucatinsky (“Scandal”) and Ray Romano (“Parenthood”) are considered guest stars in their respective series, even though all three appear frequently. (As with all things, the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences has final say.)

The reason for all this jockeying is sometimes logical, and sometimes a matter of smart strategizing, in a year when there is an overabundance of worthwhile contenders.

Chuck Lorre: To Do a Show Like ‘Mom’ Is an ‘Opportunity to Apologize for “Two and a Half Men”‘

2 June 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Television Academy Honors celebrated its seventh annual event Sunday night at the Sls Beverly Hills honoring seven programs, including CBS’s “Mom” and ABC Family’s “The Fosters,” that use television to generate awareness and create change regarding social issues.

The pilot episode of “The Fosters” was honored for bringing and unconventional family to television with lesbian mothers raising biological, adopted and foster children.

“I know first hand the value of seeing yourself reflected in the media,” said “Fosters” co-creator Peter Paige, who was once on “Queer as Folk.” “We are a society obsessed with our own reflection and our reflection is not a mirror — it’s that plasma on the wall in our living rooms and when you don’t see yourself there you feel invisible.”

Television Academy Recognizes Shows That Go Beyond the Headlines

29 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Finding examples of television series that promote positive social change isn’t the challenge for the seventh annual Television Academy Honors, which take place June 1 in Beverly Hills. The difficult part is narrowing down the 120 to 130 submissions to just six to eight honorees each year, says TV Academy senior awards VP John Leverence.

“They struggle mightily every year because there is so much really good television with a conscience,” Leverence says.

The series receiving recognition this year are Showtime’s “The Big C: Hereafter” and “Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor”; ABC Family’s “The Fosters”; HBO’s “Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God” and “Vice”; CBS’ “Mom”; and Glamour.com’s “Screw You Cancer.”

Although the honorees typically cover subjects that are in the news — most notably last year’s breast cancer storyline on NBC’s “Parenthood” and Food Network’s childhood poverty documentary “Hunger Hits Home »
