How Viola Davis Got Her Power Back

28 July 2016 2:27 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Viola Davis has been acting non-stop for three decades, yet some of that time was spent playing bit roles on movies for just two or three days at a time. It was steady work, but not the kind of gigs that would – in Davis’ words – “wake her up.”

Now, as her career explodes, Davis’ eyes are wide open. Next up, the star will be seen in Oscar contender “Fences,” the upcoming adaptation of August Wilson’s play directed by Denzel Washington. She’s in “Suicide Squad,” which comes out next week. And Season 3 of “How to Get Away With Murder,”  in which she stars as Annalise Keating, is now in production.

It wasn’t just her Oscar-nominated work in 2011’s “The Help” that Davis credits for bringing her to the next level. “Murder,” for which she’s just »

Emmy Awards 2016: Handicapping the Top Series and Acting Races

28 July 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

That sigh of relief you hear across town is from everyone who made it through the first round of the TV Academy’s Emmy voting. Now, the race begins in earnest to claim the small screen’s top trophies. We took a look at 11 key categories to break down the ones to beat, and the threats to watch out for, before voters cast their final ballots beginning Aug. 15.

Drama Series

HBO’s powerhouse “Game of Thrones” is once again the year’s most-nominated series with 23 noms (down only one from last year). It’ll be tough to beat the returning champ. Netflix’s “House of Cards” is second in overall noms for drama, with 13 (including eight for acting). The swan song season for PBS’ “Downton Abbey” nabbed 11, and though there may be some sentimental factor in voting for a series that never won top drama (it triumphed as a miniseries in its first season), don’t bet »

Homeland Season 6 Sets Elizabeth Marvel As President-Elect

27 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Heather Dunbar is a name that ought to ring a bell for fans of Netflix’s hit political series House of Cards; after all, Dunbar emerged as Frank Underwood’s (Kevin Spacey) primary rival in the latter stages of season 3, before racketeering and scandal derailed her campaign at the eleventh hour.

But for Elizabeth Marvel, the actress who so brilliantly portrayed Heather Dunbar across those crucial seasons, the Oval Office still beckons, now that Marvel has inked a deal to star as president-elect Elizabeth Keane in Homeland season 6.

With Showtime’s flagship expected to return in January, Marvel’s casting comes at an opportune time for the network, particularly now that Hillary Clinton has become the first woman Presidential nominee from a major party. Aligning neatly with the ongoing U.S. presidential election, it’s understood Elizabeth Keane, like Clinton, will hail from New York City and is described as “bright, »

The Emmys Year of Laurie Metcalf

27 July 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

More than twenty years after winning three consecutive Emmys for Supporting Actress (Comedy) for “Roseanne,” and nearly a decade removed from her last nomination (for her guest arc on “Desperate Housewives”), Laurie Metcalf’s three nods this year mark a well-deserved return to the spotlight, even if the TV Academy’s decision to honor her in the Guest Actress (Comedy) category for nine minutes of screen time in “The Big Bang Theory” suggests a lack of imagination. Whether or not she nabs a surprise win in September, Metcalf is in the midst of yet another fruitful interlude in her long, expansive career, and that alone is worth celebrating.

In “Episode 3” of “Horace and Pete,” the camera settles on Metcalf’s face as if seeing it for the first time. Her monologue, nine minutes in all, isn’t pitched at the viewer, exactly—it’s clear from the start that Metcalf »

‘Homeland’ Casts Elizabeth Marvel as President-Elect

27 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the Democratic Party having just nominated one female former New York senator for president, “Homeland” is putting another on the White House doorstep.

Actress Elizabeth Marvel has been cast to play President-Elect Elizabeth Keane, a former New York senator set to ascend to the presidency. The character is bright, charming, lively and blunt — a natural politician.

Marvel’s credits include “House of Cards,” “Fargo,” “True Grit” and “Burn After Reading.”

In January, Showtime CEO David Nevins revealed at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that the sixth season of “Homeland” would be set “in and around New York City.” In June, star Claire Danes revealed during a Q&A at New York’s Film Society of Lincoln Center details of the character that Marvel is set to play, saying she will not be a thinly veiled Hillary Clinton figure, but instead “a composite of all the different candidates.” Danes »

Madrid — Aligning two of the most ambitious TV drama producers in the Spanish-speaking world, Spain’s Mediapro Group and Argentina’s Oficina Burman have struck a strategic co-development deal for high-end fiction TV series and formats aimed squarely at international markets.

Chaos or Calm? As Hillary Clinton Accepts the Nomination, What to Watch For at the Democratic Convention

26 July 2016 4:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Democratic National Convention got off to a bit of a rocky start on Monday in Philadelphia. But campaign strategist Mark McKinnon, one of the stars of Showtime’s political series “The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth,” predicts that the rest of the week will go smoother.

The week began with a leak of embarrassing Democratic National Committee emails that led to the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Armed with the suggestion that the organization derided the Bernie Sanders campaign, supporters of the candidate expressed their displeasure with chants and boos.

The Ultimate Emmy Underdogs: Can Any One-Nomination Wonders Actually Win?

26 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Adventure Time

Nomination: Outstanding Short-Form Animated Program

Can It Win? Yes!

Why? A perennial nominee in the category, “Adventure Time” finally broke through and won just last year. As the defending champ, it’s definitely got a shot.

In an Ideal World: As much respect as we have for “Robot Chicken,” “Adventure Time” definitely deserves to win again — especially for the submitted episode, “The Hall of Egress.”

The Affair

Nomination: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Maura Tierney

Can It Win? Not likely.

Why? Tierney was a surprise inclusion, even with a sterling season under her belt. Her best bet relies on the three nominated “Game of Thrones” actors knocking each other out, and we’re guessing HBO won’t let that happen.

In an Ideal World: Tierney would already have an Emmy — either for Season 1 of “The Affair” or “E.R.

‘Homeland’ Director Lesli Linka Glatter is Fearless (Emmy Video)

25 July 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It isn’t news when Lesli Linka Glatter earns another Emmy nomination for directing “Homeland” (Showtime) — this time, she’s gotten two, as well as sharing Best Drama with showrunners Alex Ganza and Howard Gordon and the other executive producers.

From the start, Glatter has deployed the rigorous discipline she learned from being a modern dance choreographer to meticulously preparing everything she does, from storyboards to character analysis.

After her AFI women’s directing program short was nominated for an Oscar in 1985, Steven Spielberg hired her to direct an episode of “Amazing Stories,” a huge-scale World War II battle sequence with soldiers storming a beach and 150 extras. Then there was nothing she couldn’t do. While she went on to direct the 1995 teen classic “Now and Then,” she has found more nourishment from television than movies.

She earned DGA and/or Emmy nominations for her directing on “Twin Peaks,” “Mad Men, »

24: Legacy: Will We See Jack Bauer?

24 July 2016 2:43 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Is there hope for Jack Bauer to appear in the new incarnation of 24?

The cast and crew of 24: Legacy took to the San Diego Comic Con to release some of the details about this revived version of the hit series.

A big question was always going to surround Jack Bauer and whether he would make an appearance. 

Thankfully, there's hope. Just ask executive producer, Manny Coto.

"You never know when those worlds may intersect,” Coto teased, later adding, “I think all of us really want to finish that story.”

As great as it would be to see Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, this new show should try stand on its own, at least initially. 

The Walking Dead's Corey Hawkins had much to say about his role on this iconic brand. 

He described his character as a new hero, but was quick to mention that Eric has some flaws. »

The clock. The boxes. The dink! dink! dink! dink! ticking. They’ll all be there when 24: Legacy debuts in February, producers and stars of the Fox series assured fans during a San Diego Comic-Con panel on Sunday. And please, don’t call it a “reboot.”

“This is more of an expansion of the 24 universe,” producer Manny Coto told fans in Hall H, likening the upcoming series to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. “It’s really just another story in the same world” that introduced us to the original version’s Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland.

Why Steven Soderbergh Deserves an Emmy for Directing ‘The Knick’

20 July 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Before “The Knick” scatters its characters to the four winds, Steven Soderbergh offers one last, literal reminder that he thinks outside the box. When coarse ambulance driver Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan) seeks counsel from a priest, his feet protrude from the confessional, and though his voice remains as sharp as if he were beside us, Soderbergh replaces the traditional depiction of penance—faint light filtering through the partition, illuminating a face wracked by guilt—with a far more ambiguous one.

Via a series of long, still compositions, venturing into the barren aisles and empty pews, the camera edges toward the opposite end of the cavernous nave, returning to the image of the Irishman’s shoes only when he reaches his reason for being there. In his slightly forlorn brogue, Cleary asks for a prayer that the disgraced Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour) accept his hand in marriage: He wants her to be his wife, »
