From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) and directed by Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book, Iron Man), The Orville is a one-hour science fiction series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel.
Its crew, both human and alien, faces the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace…even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship. In the 25th century, Earth is part of the Planetary Union, a far-reaching, advanced and mostly peaceful civilization with a fleet of 3,000 ships.

The challenging goal of the Emmy Awards is to reflect who we are in this moment, to single out those shows that represent the best of what’s being created across all platforms. This year’s list of Emmy nominees succeeded in some ways — highlighting risk-taking freshmen shows such as FX’s “Atlanta” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” and exceptional performances from Sterling K. Brown, Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed and many others.
But frustratingly, the voters also showed a stubborn reluctance to let go of the past, with nods for legacy shows long past their prime. The result is an uneven lineup, scattered with bright spots but plagued by too many noteworthy omissions.
To be fair, their job isn’t easy — sifting through the nearly 500 scripted shows produced in the past year that fed into 117 categories and a record-breaking 9,000 submissions. No one reasonably has time to watch them all. (Those of us who cover TV barely do »

According to Deadline, Rogue One star Felicity Jones has signed on to play Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Mimi Leder’s On The Basis Of Sex. The movie sounds like a biopic about Ginsburg and the sexism she has faced in her career, with the Deadline story saying it focuses on the “numerous obstacles to her fight for equal rights.” Mimi Leder was the director behind Pay It Forward and Deep Impact, but in recent years she’s focused more on TV, working on The Leftovers—which she also produced—and Shameless.
As for the real Ginsburg, she was the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court, and her judicial career has largely been about fighting for the advancement of women’s rights. Basically, she wasn’t as instrumental in blowing up the Death Star as Jones’ Jyn Erso was, but she’s no less of a badass. »
