Our Staff Picks: TV Shows to Watch the Week of Feb. 27, 2017

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome back to Tune In: our weekly newsletter, offering a guide to the best of the week’s TV.

Each week, Variety’s TV team combs through the week’s TV schedule, selecting our picks of what to watch and when/how to watch it. This week, midseason premieres take over the broadcast networks with a slew of new series, plus E!’s second scripted show and Ryan Murphy’s latest FX project debut.

When We Rise,” ABC, Monday, 9 p.m.

Kudos to ABC for bringing this long-overdue story to broadcast television — the four-part, eight-hour series from “Milk” Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black is about the gay rights movement. But, Variety‘s critic Sonia Soraiya has mixed feelings, writing, “The mere existence of ‘When We Rise’ is almost virtue enough. But in terms of tone and execution, the four-part event series from ABC is wildly uneven…” (Read Soraiya’s full review here.)

The Good Fight's Race Against Time With Skype, Doctors and Terrorists

26 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well, they can't all be winners. That seems to be the moral of The Good Fight, three episodes in, and applies to "The Schtup List." Spoiler warning! The Good Wife was known for its fast-paced, high-stakes race against time episodes, something the legal drama almost always did well. But The Good Fight's first attempt at one failed to recapture the sense of urgency its predecessor almost always succeeded in conveying. Lucca (Cush Jumbo) and Diane (Christine Baranski) were tasked with defending their malpractice client when he was arrested for aiding a terrorist. A brief rewind: Zachary Knighton from Happy Endings played a world-class surgeon working with Doctors Without Borders and providing Skype »

Damon Wayans Jr. Joins Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s FX Comedy Pilot

23 February 2017 6:32 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Happy Endings” star Damon Wayans Jr. has been tapped as one of the leads in FX’s comedy pilot “Singularity,” Variety has confirmed.

Singularity,” which hails from “Silicon Valley” and “The Real O’Neals” scribe Sonny Lee and executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, takes place in a world where artificial intelligence has been woven into daily life. In tech parlance, “the Singularity” will mark the point at which AI overtakes that of its human creators, leading to, essentially, the end of the era of homo sapiens on earth.

Wayans Jr. will play Doug, a guy who loves to be in the moment and is often dressed in Yeezy streetwear. Contrary to some, Doug is happily reliant on AI and seeks out all the pleasures technology has to offer.

Lee, who is also a co-exec producer on Netflix’s “Girlboss,” will serve as an exec producer as well as writer. Rogen »

TV Pilot Season: Which Stars Are Getting All the Offers?

10 February 2017 6:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Next week is poised to be a busy one for pilot castings, as the first wave of (largely) far-fetched offers is coming to a close and broadcast networks hone in on top stars. 

With about 20 fewer pilots to select from this season, the competition is especially fierce among the broadcast networks, who again are forced to compete for talent against cable networks and streaming services who offer shorter orders, cache and big bucks.

Happy Endings favorite Damon Wayans Jr. has again emerged as one of, if not the most sought-after star this pilot season, juggling multiple comedy offers from »

12 TV Shows to Watch During Times of Political Unrest — IndieWire Critics Survey

24 January 2017 12:10 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: During a period of political unrest, which TV show do you find yourself turning to?

Todd VanDerWerff (@tvoti), Vox

This is weird, but as the inauguration of Donald Trump (and the attendant protests) have approached, I’ve been thinking more and more of “Lost,” a show filled with anxiety about the darkness humanity is capable of, but undergirded with hope about what we can do when we’re all forced to work together. I, in general, believe humanity works toward something better, and while that faith has been shaken throughout my life (and is almost certainly coaxed into existence by the fact that I am a »

White Men Can't Jump Remake Happening with Black-Ish Creator

17 January 2017 1:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While NBA superstar LeBron James continues to develop a long-gestating sequel to Space Jam, another current NBA star is working on a new basketball-themed remake. Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is teaming up with the NBA's Blake Griffin and NFL star Ryan Kalil for a remake of the 1992 comedy film White Men Can't Jump. While the title for the original is actually a line in the film, delivered by Wesley Snipes' Sidney Deane to Woody Harrelson's Billy Hoyle, about his inability to dunk, it's quite ironic that Blake Griffin is producing, since he is a white man that can jump, winning the NBA Slam Dunk contest in 2011.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Kenya Barris will write the screenplay and produce this sports remake, which will fall under the overall deal he signed with 20th Century Fox last September. Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil will produce under their Mortal Media company, »

11 January 2017 7:11 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Ever want to travel back to colonial times? On Making History, all you have to do is… hop into an old gym bag, apparently.

Fox’s new time-travel comedy — premiering Sunday, March 5 at 8:30/7:30c — stars Happy Endings alum Adam Pally as a slacker who has a magical duffel bag that allows him to travel through time. (His father was a brilliant physicist, you see.) He ends up in Lexington, right before the American Revolution, and uses modern-day song lyrics (and giant hunks of ham) to charm a colonial girl played by Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester.

9 January 2017 5:31 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You know how they say when a stand-up comedian is failing miserably, he’s “dying”? Well, Showtime’s new dramedy I’m Dying Up Here knows all about that feeling.

Set to the groovy tune of “Blinded by the Light,” the first trailer for the upcoming series, set in the stand-up comedy scene of 1970s L.A., delivers just as much angst as it does laughter. And it comes courtesy of a guy who lived through it: Mega-star Jim Carrey, a stand-up veteran himself, is an executive producer.
