Jenji Kohan Leads Band of Female Showrunners Breaking TV’s Old-School Rules

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

In a dynamic marketplace, a rising tide lifts all boats. And the tidal wave of television series production in the past few years has led to an unprecedented number of women serving as captains of their ships — as showrunners and auteur writer-directors of shows.

A host of shows that have resonated loudly in pop culture — from “Transparent” to “Empire” to “The Affair” — have women at the helm.

And Shonda Rhimes now has company on the list of women who are juggling multiple primetime series.

This sea change comes with financial gains, according to data from the Writers Guild of America West, and brings anecdotal evidence of shifts in the way series are made. But it’s not just the heightened demand for content that has been good for female creatives; a newfound openness to material, no matter how challenging or narrowly focused, has paved the way for shows with fresh themes. »

Deadpool Teaser Trailer Is Wonderfully Meta

3 August 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking another light-hearted jab at the Hollywood movie-making machine, 20th Century Fox has debuted the teaser trailer for Tim Miller’s upcoming Deadpool adaptation, narrated by, er, the Merc with a Mouth himself.

Ahead of the full red band trailer reveal tomorrow, the teaser is merely a means of setting the tone, as Ryan Reynold’s titular, potty-mouthed anti-hero readies himself to break through the Internet’s fourth wall. Of a similar length to the sizzle reel showcased during San Diego Comic-Con, it’s understood that the trailer will premiere during Conan, with the talk show even “filling up [Deadpool‘s] dressing room with chimichangas in anticipation.”

Reprising his role as Wade Wilson, Reynolds even pokes fun at Fox’s decision to “inexplicably sew his f*cking mouth shut the first time” for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and if there was any lasting doubt that Miller’s take on the beloved, »

Hitman: Agent 47 Featurette Introduces Rupert Friend As The Stone-Cold Assassin

30 July 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox has today unveiled a new featurette for its upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, which takes a tentative peak into the mind of the stone cold, genetically enhanced killing machine.

Stepping into the shoes of the titular one-man army is Homeland star Rupert Friend, who is on a mission to sabotage the cloning process that brought him into this world as an emotionless sharpshooter. As a result, Friend’s Agent 47 will have his proverbial crosshairs trained on Thomas Kretschmann’s Le Clerq, the chairman of a twisted organisation known as Syndicate International. In order to do so, our protagonist must track down his daughter, Katia van Dees (Hannah Ware).

Making his feature-film debut is Aleksander Bach, who will oversee the high-octane actioner for Fox. With a cast list that encompasses Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, Dan Bakkedahl and Ciaran Hinds, Hitman: Agent 47 need not »

Spectre Theme Song Betting Closed After Massive, Anonymous Radiohead Wager

30 July 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Remember those U.K.-based bookies we keep hearing about? They were the ones placing bets on who the new James Bond would be after Daniel Craig, naming Homeland.s Damian Lewis as the frontrunner. Well, these folks are now doing the same with who will eventually come to perform the theme song for Spectre . or, at least, they were. Betting has now been closed because someone dropped an insanely large amount of money in favor of Radiohead. THR says that a British bookie "suspended" its betting after an anonymous gambler dropped £15,000 (which translates to roughly $23,000) on Radiohead as the group that will record the next James Bond theme song. While only Sam Mendes knows at the moment who will sing the next Bond theme song, the bookies suggested that this type of action was enough to point to Radiohead as a new frontrunner even though the iconic rock outfit »

USA Orders Comic Book Pilot ‘Brooklyn Animal Control’ from David Goyer, ‘Walking Dead’ Ep

28 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network has ordered a pilot for “Brooklyn Animal Control,” based on the IDW comicbook by JT Petty and Stephen Thompson.

Written and executive produced by Petty, the project follows the inner workings of a secret subdivision of the NYPD that functions as social services for some of the city’s most unique citizens — werewolves. Delving into the lives of both the Case Officers, and the secretive, highly insular Kveld-Ulf, a community of werewolves living deep in the borough, “Brooklyn Animal Control” will examine city politics, immigrant communities, and families divided by ambition, secrecy, and tradition.

“Batman v Superman” writer David Goyer, Circle of Confusion’s David Alpert and Rick Jacobs, and Idw Entertainment’s David Ozer and Ted Adams will serve as executive producers on the project, which hails from Universal Cable Productions and Idw Entertainment.

“Fans of the comic book know that ‘Brooklyn Animal Control’ is a thriller »

23 July 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aaron Mendelsohn has won the election to succeed Carl Gottlieb as secretary-treasurer of the Writers Guild of America West after opponent Marjorie David withdrew from the contest.

Mendelsohn’s election was revealed Thursday as the WGA West shared its final list of candidates for the upcoming election, a month after announcing candidates selected by its nominating committee. New candidates are permitted to run via petition, but no new candidates have emerged.

Mendelsohn’s credits include producing “Secret Diary of an American Cheerleader” and writing “Air Bud.” He is also a current board member and will assume the secretary-treasurer post on Sept. 21, when the election concludes.

Jeff Westbrook also withdrew his name from the 17 previously announced candidates running for eight board seats with two-year terms. The ninth-place finisher in that contest will serve the remaining year of Mendelsohn’s term.

The key contest pits Howard Rodman and Joan Meyerson for the presidency. »
