Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award For Television Writing Achievement (Wgaw)

David Crane and Marta Kauffman

Longtime writing partners Kauffman and Crane created the hit television series “Friends,” which earned 63 Emmy nominations in its decade-long run, the Kirstie Alley starring “Veronica’s Closet”; “The Powers That Be”; and the HBO series “Dream On.” And they didn’t stop there. Outside their partnership, Crane has co-created several series with Jeffrey Klarik, including “Episodes” and “The Class.” Kauffman most recently co-created Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie,” which was nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe this year.

Battlestar Galactica film in development

11 February 2016 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

All this has happened before and all this will happen again thanks to a deal Universal has made to develop the long-gestating Battlestar Galactica film.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, producer Michael De Luca is teaming up with producers Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark of Bluegrass Films to bring Battlestar Galactica to the big screen. Ever since the rebooted television series ended in 2009, Universal has been looking to bring the Battlestar franchise to the big screen, attaching Bryan Singer to direct at one point. He eventually left the project when it couldn’t get off the ground, but in 2014 it was said series creator Glen A. Larson was working on the project with Transcendence writer Jack Palgen. That project again fell through.

Currently, there is no writer on this adaptation of Battlestar; only the three producers have been named. De Luca has produced American History X, The Social Network and recently »

Universal Sets Its Sights On Space With A Battlestar Galactica Movie Franchise

11 February 2016 5:17 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since its debut in 1978, Battlestar Galactica has never really been absent from popular culture. That first series may have only run for one season, but it has been rebooted, re-imagined and re-worked more times than anyone over the age of 35 would probably care to remember. Despite more failures to launch than successful orbits, Universal has assembled a team of powerhouse producers to make a Battlestar Galactica movie franchise a reality.

Michael De Luca (Captain Phillips, Moneyball, The Social Network, and the Fifty Shades franchise), Scott Stuber (The Break-Up, The Kingdom, Ted) and Dylan Clark (The Heat, the Planet Of The Apes franchise) are combining their considerable forces to begin piecing together what the studio hopes will become a movie series of the tent-pole variety. While that sounds, perhaps, ill-advised, it is certainly the case that the Battlestar Galactica brand has enormous potential for development.

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Movie Adds Michael De Luca, Scott Stuber as Producers

10 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal has brought on “Fifty Shades of Grey” producer Michael De Luca along with Dylan Clark and Scott Stuber for its movie version of the sci-fi franchise “Battlestar Galactica.”

De Luca finalized a three-year first-look deal to produce movies for Universal Pictures last year and is producing the next two “Fifty Shades of Grey” films. Stuber and Clark operate through Bluegrass Films, based at Universal.

Variety reported in April 2014 that original series creator Glen Larson was on board to produce the “Battlestar Galactica” film at Universal with “Transcendence” writer Jack Paglen on board. Larson died later that year.

There have been four “Galactica” TV series (including the brief “Galactica 1980” and “Caprica”). The first, starring Lorne Greene and Richard Hatch, ran during the 1978-79 season and was centered on humans engaged in a lengthy war against a cybernetic race known as the Cylons while searching for Earth.

Top 10 Disappointing Films Of 2015

18 January 2016 2:26 PM, PST | | See recent news »

2015 offered some terrific films for audiences – The Martian, Creed, Straight Outta Compton, Brooklyn and Star Wars: The Force Awakens to name a few. They were huge crowd-pleasers and very successful at the box office. But not every movie connected with audiences this past year, as much as we wanted them to.

Wamg takes a look at the past 12 months and the movies that we really wanted to love, but just couldn’t. Here we go with our Top 10 list of the Most Disappointing Films of 2015.

Dishonorable Mention: Seventh Son

It’s hard to decipher exactly what Jeff Bridges is saying under his accent that sounds like a cross between Gandalf and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. And that is only one of the many problems with this film. Seventh Son is nothing but hallow, visual clutter that is cobbled together to form something that struggles to appeal to the »

Michael Schur Talks ‘Good Place,’ New Kristen Bell-Ted Danson Comedy

14 January 2016 5:23 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After a long stint in Pawnee, Ind., Michael Schur is heading to a very different place — a “Good Place,” in fact.

The latest project from “Parks and Recreation” executive producer Schur is a straight-to-series 13-episode comedy starring Kristen Bell (“House of Lies,” “Veronica Mars”) and Ted Danson. The NBC comedy is about a New Jersey woman who realizes that she’s not actually a very good person and tries to change — if only she can figure out what positive changes look like.

Danson, most recently seen in FX’s “Fargo,” will play a man who helps Bell’s character, Eleanor, on her self-improvement path. In his first interview about the new show, Schur, who is also an executive producer on “Master of None” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” said that there is a third major character to be cast, as well as an ensemble of a few other series regulars, but the »

Over the weekend, most of Hollywood had all eyes on the Golden Globes. Myself included. But just because you aren’t paying attention doesn’t mean superhero news isn’t raining from the sky.

Including hints as to how big this shared universe really is. #1: New “Batman V Superman” footage Two TV spots were recently released for the upcoming showdown.

Batman doesn’t make threats, he makes promises. #2: How many Justice League members will cameo in “Batman v Superman”? All of them. Maybe. Not really, but the core team might put in an appearance.

TV Review: ‘Man Seeking Woman,’ Season 2

4 January 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Refreshing in its silliness as well as its commitment to offend, “Man Seeking Woman” crams a lot into each half-hour episode, sometimes to its detriment. On the whole, though, this Fxx comedy (a castoff from its flagship network), culled from author-creator Simon Rich’s short stories, departs from many of today’s more-admired comedies in its steadfast determination to be funny, incorporating wild, cartoon-like flights of fancy into the narrative. Not everything works, but the previewed episodes again establish this as a series with a singular vision, elevating the indignities of dating to an epic level.

Comparisons to early Woody Allen remain inevitable, especially with the way Jay Baruchel plays the perpetually flustered, inordinately imaginative Josh, who, in the first season, was the only one in his circle bothered by the fact that his ex-girlfriend was dating Hitler (yes, that Hitler). The new campaign opens with Josh actually having a girlfriend, »
