Emmy Contenders 2016: Sneak Peek of the Top Races

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

It’s that time of year — Emmy season is almost upon us. Before the race for TV’s top trophy takes off in earnest, Variety takes a look at nine key categories and breaks down which of last year’s nominees are in and out of the running and which newcomers have already made an impact on the kudos landscape.

Drama Series

What’s out: AMC’s “Mad Men” retired after seven seasons and eight series noms.

What’s back: AMC’s “Better Call Saul”; PBS’ “Downton Abbey”; Showtime’s “Homeland”; Netflix’s “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black”; and HBO’s reigning champ, “Game of Thrones,” are all eligible again.

Looking to return: CBS’ “The Good Wife,” last nominated in 2011, has one final chance to make its case.

What’s new: Among freshmen contenders, USA’s “Mr. Robot” has a leg up thanks to a Golden Globe victory, »

HBO Faces Major Programming Challenges as Michael Lombardo Departs

20 May 2016 6:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Lombardo may not have been pushed overboard at HBO. But as he disembarks, the ship is taking on water.

Lombardo, whom Variety reported Friday will step down as HBO programming president, is a 33-year veteran of the premium cable channel. Promoted to his current role in 2007, he oversaw the network’s resurgence following the end of “The Sopranos” and the departure of former CEO Chris Albrecht. Under current CEO Richard Plepler, he developed a fleet of hits, Emmy winners and critical darlings that includes “True Blood,” “Eastbound & Down,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Newsroom,” “Girls,” “Veep,” “True Detective” (well, the first season) and “Silicon Valley.” Lombardo’s most important legacy is “Game of Thrones,” the series that through its record-breaking Emmy hauls and outsize ratings has defined HBO in the post-“Sopranos” era.

But with “Game of Thrones” set to end after two more seasons, HBO now faces a transitional period. »

His issues with substance abuse and family tragedy inform his comedy as he tries to re-acclimate into the early-’70s L.A. comedy scene. But not everyone is quick to welcome him back, nor is he interested in conforming to their idea of what comedy is. »

'Gimme Danger': Cannes Review

19 May 2016 7:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

There's a nice throwaway moment in Paterson, Jim Jarmusch's supple exploration of the poetry at the heart of blue-collar New Jersey, in which a local bar owner consults the regular customer played by Adam Driver over whether a 1970 newspaper clipping belongs on the establishment's wall of fame. The item reports the Paterson Teenage Girls' Club voting Iggy Pop, vocalist of The Stooges, the world's sexiest man. It's a given that the clipping will make the wall, just as it's no surprise when, right at the start of Jarmusch's tremendously entertaining rock doc, Gimme Danger, The Stooges are declared

Trailer for the Lord and Miller-produced time travel comedy series Making History

17 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer has been released for Fox’s upcoming time travel comedy Making History which stars Adam Pally, Leighton Meester and Yassir Lester. Watch it out below…

Produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), and written by Julius “Goldy” Sharpe (“The Grinder,” Family Guy), the new comedy Making History follows three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. Two shows in one, it’s both a rollicking historical adventure, and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world. Dan Chambers (Adam Pally, “The Mindy Project,” “Happy Endings”), a computer science professor at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman he’s fallen for. »

Jim Jarmusch on Boycotting ‘Star Wars,’ Bringing ‘Paterson’ to Cannes

17 May 2016 3:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Jim Jarmusch is receiving some of the best reviews of his career for “Paterson,” about a New Jersey bus driver (Adam Driver) who writes poems in his free time. He spoke to Variety about the film.

You wrote the treatment for this story 20 years ago.

I just gather ideas over the years. That was one of my possible projects. I kind of forgot about it for a while.

Where did the poems come from?

Ron Padgett is one of my favorite contemporary poets, and he agreed to write the poems for the film. We also used some of his pre-existing poems.

How did you cast Adam Driver?

Usually, I have actors in mind for the main characters. But I didn’t have actors in my head and began trying to find the right actors. I honestly hadn’t seen Adam in too many things. I’d seen him in “Frances Ha, »

‘Prison Break,’ ’24: Legacy,’ ‘Lethal Weapon’ and More Trailers From Fox’s 2016-17 Season

16 May 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.

Fall:

Lethal Weapon

Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, “Lethal Weapon” follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. From the moment the brash and impulsive Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) meets prudent, by-the-book Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), it seems as if this partnership is doomed. But after their first case together, both realize this arrangement might just work out after all – if Riggs doesn’t get them killed first.

The Exorcist

Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” terrified audiences around the world. »
