Rupert Friend Is Back on the Set of Homeland! So, Quinn's Not Dead?

22 August 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Season five of Homeland is bleak for everyone, but most of all for Quinn. He's in terrible shape during the finale, and all signs point to his character not pulling though - all signs except for these new set pictures, in which actor Rupert Friend is walking around all alive and stuff. Would it have been poetic if he dies after Carrie reads his letter? Yes. Do we actually want the character gone? No. We'll have to wait until January for the new season, but you can see the set pictures here. Related Stories:These Shows Won't Be Back Until 2017 »

‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’: Why Sarah Paulson Will Win Best Actress Emmy (Video)

22 August 2016 1:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It was the first day of shooting on FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” and Sarah Paulson was anxious.

Why? Because she had not auditioned for the role. Her “American Horror Story” executive producer Ryan Murphy, who is also behind “American Crime Story,” had offered her the part.

Now, Paulson is considered the frontrunner for Outstanding Actress in a Limited Series, and “The People v. O.J. Simpson” has been nominated for a whopping 22 Emmys. And in hindsight, it’s hard to believe that Paulson, who has been plying her craft as a working actress for 20 years, was worried that she would pass muster as Marcia Clark.

“I really fear walking onto the set and having them go, ‘oops!'” she confessed during our video interview at the recent Television Critics Association confab, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. “When you’re auditioning, you know you »

Emmy Awards: There’s Plenty of Drama in the Drama Race

18 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When did drama become the underdog?

Traditionally the most prestigious category at the Emmys, somewhere along the line, drama lost a bit of heat.

The culprit: Those clever folks over at Team Comedy, who stole the spotlight thanks to the emergence of new bold, risk-taking, subversive voices (“Master of None,” “Black-ish”).

Also guilty of a bit of momentum theft: Team Limited Series. It’s hard to compete with the star power lured by the promise of 10-and-out (“The People v. O.J. Simpson,” “The Night Manager”). No series commitment necessary.

But don’t sell drama short. Even in the post “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” era, there’s still plenty of high-quality drama being made on television. From big-budget battles to intricate spy craft to emotional wallops, the seven drama contenders offer powerful storytelling, compelling narratives, stellar acting — and yes, even a few laughs.

Witness the chorus of cheers when FX’s “The Americans” finally earned its much deserved »

Emmy-Nominated Drama Creatives Discuss Submitted Episodes

18 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Each Emmy nominated drama series is asked to submit six episodes from their eligible season to serve as a sample of their work. Variety asked creatives behind each nominated series to discuss the decisions that went into those submissions.

The Americans (FX)

“We wanted to go with some sense of momentum in picking mostly [the season’s] later episodes, and one early on that had a big moment and set the table for what was to come,” says executive producer Joel Fields of putting episodes four, seven, eight, nine, 12, and 13 of season four before Emmy voters. “We very quickly settled on four of the six, and in choosing the final two it then became about thinking through, ‘Do we want to go more for flow, for favorite episodes?’ And we picked one early and one later to give a sense of the whole season,” says series creator Joe Weisberg.

Better Call Saul (AMC)

‘Homeland’s’ Lesli Linka Glatter and ‘UnReal’s’ Marti Noxon on the Challenges of Writing & Directing in Peak TV

18 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amping up the drama on television is no easy feat, with viewer expectations rising amid increased competition across manifold platforms. Lesli Linka Glatter has become “Homeland’s” go-to director — she earned her third Emmy nomination for helming the episode that saw Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) protect Otto During from a terrorist attack in a refugee camp. And Marti Noxon, now juggling multiple projects include the upcoming drama “Sharp Objects” at HBO, earned her Emmy nod (alongside Sarah Gertrude Shapiro) for the pilot of “UnReal” which exposed the manipulations that drive reality television.

Lesli, you’re the only female nominee in your category. Marti, aside from Michelle King (“The Good Wife”), you and Sarah are the only female nominees. Why are we still having this conversation?

Lesli Linka Glatter: Oh my god, I wish we weren’t in 2016 we have the first female presidential candidate. I tell you, if you would have asked me when I started »

Drama’s in the Details for Emmy-Nominated Series

18 August 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whether it’s planting seeds from which future plot twists bloom or hiding Easter eggs to tantalize die-hard fans, the showrunners of this year’s Emmy-nominated drama series recognize the high level of scrutiny their shows face from eagle-eyed viewers in the social media age.

Better Call Saul” executive producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould say they’re both reading a book about the original “Star Trek” and while fan scrutiny was acute during that classic show’s run, fan theories now get distributed at warp speed. “What’s changed is the technology nowadays — some form of social media allows folks like Peter and I instantaneous reaction from these hardcore fans if we choose to partake in it,” Gilligan says.

“Fan theories 50 years ago might have been published in a mimeographed fanzine. Now it’s up on Reddit or up on Twitter and spreads really fast,” Gould says.

Emmy Drama Series Race: ‘Game of Thrones’ vs. ‘Mr. Robot’

18 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Even with seven series in the hunt, Emmy’s drama field could be twice as large because of all the worthy candidates in the peak TV era. Among the contenders this time, the battle lines seem to be drawn as a choice between the great spectacle of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and the seductively subversive world of USA’s “Mr. Robot.” But two beloved spy-fi series could well be sleepers to watch: FX’s “The Americans,” which finally earned some Emmy respect after four seasons, and Showtime’s “Homeland,” which reinvented itself yet again in season five.

The Odds

The chances of reigning champ “Game of Thrones” nabbing back-to-back wins are strong. The fantasy drama raised the stakes again with the emotional arcs for its core characters and the stunning accompanying visuals. Plus, given the opportunity, Emmy voters love repeat victories. Shows that logged consecutive drama series wins during the past 30 years include “L.A. Law” (1989- »

How to Get Cast in a Horror Film

16 August 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

When New York area acting coach and Backstage Expert Matt Newton dove into directing his first short film, “Hide/Seek,” earlier this year, Backstage was one of his first sources for casting the film’s four roles. “We received a total of 3,500 submissions, probably half of which came from Backstage,” Newton said. “We wanted to put it out to everybody and use this entire process to help my actors document what happens from casting to pre-production to production to post-production.” With the help of “Homeland” casting director Kimberly Graham, Newton sifted through those 3,500 applicants and brought 60 of them in for auditions, 20 into callbacks, and eventually cast four. In using Backstage, he quickly learned what he was looking for from actors and what makes a profile really pop. “It was really eye-opening on the casting process,” he said. “It’s really about people needing to know how to present themselves professionally. »

Nominees:

The Americans

Better Call Saul

Downton Abbey

Game of Thrones

Homeland

IndieWire’s Vote: “The Americans

We’re obviously big fans of a lot of these shows. “Better Call Saul,” “Mr. Robot” and even “House of Cards” are deserving nominees, and there’s no shame in voting for any one of them. But come on: “The Americans” getting an Emmy nod for Outstanding Drama Series is like the Chicago Cubs reaching the World Series. If they made it this far — finally — they better freaking win. “The Americans” has been the best drama on cable for four years. An intricate spy thriller side-by-side with an equally compelling family drama, Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields have crafted a series as appealing as it is relevant. When it comes to FX’s best show (which is saying something), it’s more than just “you should »

Homeland” writer and executive producer Patrick Harbinson has penned political thriller “Fearless” for U.K. broadcaster ITV. The six-part miniseries will star Helen McCrory, who played Narcissa Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” films and appears in crime drama “Peaky Blinders.”

“Fearless” centers on Emma Blunt, a lawyer known for defending lost causes. She’s investigating the killing of a schoolgirl in rural England and trying to free the man she thinks was wrongly convicted of the girl’s murder. As she digs deeper into the case, she begins to sense powerful forces, in the police and the intelligence services at home and abroad, who want to stop her uncovering the truth.
