Appropriately enough, Newsroom alum Grace Gummer guest-stars as the the would-be novelist/playwright who confronts her boss (Show Me a Hero‘s Jim Belushi) when he refuses her a byline. This in turn prompts a group of female newsroom researchers to rally against sexism in hopes of one day being published in a male-dominated industry. »

Mary Berry to Quit as Judge of ‘Great British Bake Off,’ Paul Hollywood to Stay

22 September 2016 2:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — Mary Berry is quitting as a judge on “The Great British Bake Off” out of loyalty to the BBC, which lost the hit series to rival network Channel 4 in a bidding war earlier this month. But fellow judge Paul Hollywood announced that he would stick with the show.

Berry’s departure means that three of the program’s four regular personalities — whose chemistry has been credited with turning it into a ratings juggernaut — will not be moving with”Bake Off” to Channel 4 after it wraps up its run on the BBC this season.

Berry’s decision to follow hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc out of the “Bake Off” tent adds to the pressure on Channel 4 to maintain the show’s startling success and to justify the millions of pounds it put up to outbid the BBC. The BBC reportedly offered £15 million ($19.8 million) a year to keep the program, but »

Five shows for the BBC to replace Great British Bake Off

17 September 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

How can the BBC hang on to its baking fans now it has lost its showstopping cake-making show? Here are a few suggestions

It’s been a difficult time for BBC programming: The Voice went to ITV, the salvage-yard version of Top Gear was poorly received and now The Great British Bake Off has been lost to Channel 4. The BBC appears to have retained Gbbo presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, but the format and the bunting went to the highest bidder. The success of the transplant is by no means certain.

The loss of Gbbo raises questions about the corporation’s ability to retain and exploit its greatest successes in the long term, but there is a more pressing issue: how does the BBC replace its most popular programme, while hanging on to some portion of the Bake Off’s devoted audience? Here are just few suggestions for reheating the format:

‘The Great British Bake Off’: Has Channel 4 Shot Itself in the Foot?

13 September 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The wisdom of Channel 4’s acquisition of the U.K.’s most popular show, “The Great British Bake Off,” which it has poached from the BBC, was questioned Tuesday after it emerged that none of the show’s on-screen talent had guaranteed they would stay beyond the present season.

After more than a year of negotiations, the BBC is reported to have offered £15 million ($19.8 million) a year for the show, but its creators, Love Productions, wanted £25 million ($32.9 million) — four times its existing deal. Channel 4 then stepped in with its successful bid, which is for a three-year contract.

On Tuesday, news emerged that the show’s goofy but extremely popular hosts, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, will quit the show when it ends its run on the BBC this year. The two judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, whom “Bake Off” has turned into huge stars in Britain, have also not indicated whether they will stay »

The hosts of Britain’s most-watched show, “The Great British Bake Off,” will leave the cooking competition series when it moves from the BBC to Channel 4 next year.

A joint statement from Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc said: “We were very shocked and saddened to learn yesterday evening that ‘Bake Off’ will be moving from its home.

“We made no secret of our desire for the show to remain where it was….We’re not going with the dough.”

The statement continued: “The BBC nurtured the show from its infancy and helped give it its distinctive warmth and charm, growing it from an audience of 2 million to nearly 15 million at its peak.”

A spokesperson for the show’s creators, Love Production, said: “We would like to thank Mel and Sue for bringing their own unique humor to the [competition] tent over the past years and we respect their decision not to be part of the ‘Bake Off »
