‘Under the Dome’ Alum to Play Harriet Tubman in Season 2 of ‘Underground’

50 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The second season of Wgn America’s “Underground” will introduce Harriet Tubman, and Variety has learned that the pioneer will be played by “Under the Dome” alum Aisha Hinds.

The Underground Railroad’s most famous conductor revered for her grit, perseverance and unrelenting will to help scores of enslaved people reach their freedom, Tubman was born a slave. After escaping, Tubman risked her life again and again in order to free her family members and lead anyone willing to journey north across hostile territory, to freedom — a task she believed is her God-given mission.

The new season of “Underground,” which will span 10 episodes, will follow an unremitting struggle for freedom within a divided America on the brink of civil war, each side vying to enact their own justice.

Aside from Hinds, new additions to the cast for the upcoming season are Jasika Nicole (“Fringe,” “Scandal”) who will play Georgia, an abolitionist with a covert station along the »

23 August 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The bad news is that season six of Scandal has been pushed to midseason because of Kerry Washington's second pregnancy, but any good Gladiator knows that timing is everything. While you're missing Olivia Pope & Associates, here are some other shows that will help pass the time. These Scandal fillers are just as messy, drama-filled, and soapy as the original, but you won't have to wait until January to see what happens next. »

Prominent TV Casting Director: "Workshops Are Dying" After Pay-to-Play Investigation

22 August 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Prominent TV casting director Will Stewart has deleted his professional Facebook page, which advertised his casting workshop classes. In a post published Aug. 14 announcing the decision, he explained, “workshops are dying after the hate piece by The Hollywood Reporter,” referring to the examination of the proliferation of pay-to-play TV audition practices that THR published in late March. Until recently, Stewart was a casting director on several of Shonda Rhimes’ ABC shows, starting with Grey’s Anatomy in 2007, continuing through Private Practice and ending with a several-season run on Scandal. More recently, he cast the pilot

Is ABC's First Non-#Tgit Thursday Promo Trying (Way) Too Hard?

22 August 2016 7:07 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As first reported by TVLine, ABC is abandoning its “Tgit” theme this fall, seeing as its Thursday lineup (premiering Sept. 22) for the first time in years contains a non-Shonda Rhimes drama. And boy, does the first promo overexplain the switcheroo.

VideosScandal Season 5 Bloopers Include Nixed Kiss, Potty-Mouthed Potus

Embedded above, the 60-second spot (first shared by People.com) endeavors to both promote this fall’s Thursday addition — Notorious, starring Piper Perabo (Covert Affairs) and Daniel Sunjata (Graceland) and not from Shondaland — as well repeatedly reassure you that Scandal is only taking “a little break” (until January 2017, that is, »

20 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kerry Washington's second pregnancy has pushed back season six of Scandal until midseason.

Harley Quinn Smith's harassment and how Kevin Smith can help change minds

16 August 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[Update] Added Kevin Smith's comment and my own response at the bottom of the article 8/17/2016, 2:22 p.m.] I've been harassed online. A lot. So much so that when I go to visit my parents my dad will ask, "Are you still getting those bad comments online?" He's not the only one. Kevin Smith has penned a note about his daughter's harassment. Leslie Jones, Daisy Ridley, too many of the women of the Olympics, and too many others to count. Online harassment has been getting worse and worse. Harley Quinn Smith has always been in the spotlight thanks to her famous dad but now more than ever since she starred in his film Yoga Hosers. But a recent comment on her Instagram account compelled him to respond publicly. He wrote on Facebook: What it's like to be my daughter: 17 year old @harleyquinnsmith_ received this message simply for the heinous crime »

Scandal is thankfully sparing us from enduring another incendiary presidential election cycle.

When the ABC drama returns at midseason, the action will pick up “on election night,” exec producer Shonda Rhimes revealed to EW.com. “We’re not going to spend our time playing an election.” When Season 5 ended, Mellie and Jake (aka the Republican ticket) and Francisco and Cyrus (aka the Democratic ticket) had just launched their respective campaigns.

Who Wins Tony Goldwyn's POPular Vote: The Scandal President Reveals His Dream Celeb Squad & More

The 2016 presidential race rolls on, and we've got the president himself here to weigh in on all the winners in his book. We mean Scandal's commander in chief, President Fitzgerald Grant, of course. E! News caught up with Tony Goldwyn at the Democratic National Convention, another speaking stop on what's proving to be a very busy summer for the actor-director, who's moonlighting this year as a surrogate for Hillary Clinton. Goldwyn told Sibley Scoles that it's been a privilege to campaign and speak on Clinton's behalf, as well as talk about Mothers of the Movement, and it was "surreal" getting to speak at the DNC—even after spending five years »

Emmys: Is the TV Academy Selling Writers & Directors on Broadcast Shows Short?

10 August 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it comes to rewarding the leading talent behind the camera, the Television Academy skews heavily towards cable.

Of the 47 Emmy nominees in writing and directing, only seven come from broadcast — mostly in variety series, in which “Saturday Night Live,” “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” all received noms.

In the three other categories — comedy, drama, and limited series — the broadcast nets drew only three nominations, all for final seasons of once-great shows: PBS’ “Downton Abbey” and CBS’ “The Good Wife.” Meanwhile, in the other writing and directing categories, cable swept.

With so much love thrown at cable, both basic and premium — and even a couple of nominations for our newfangled streaming platforms — broadcast’s near-absence is conspicuous. To be sure, cable dramas are where our oft-heralded Golden Age of Television first began, with pay-tv’s sexy, crass, and layered storytelling from A-list talent. But »

Emmy-Nominated Limited Series and Movie Actresses Portray Real Life

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

To paraphrase George Orwell, while all acting may be equally hard, some roles are harder than others. Emmy voters took that philosophy to heart this year, particularly in the lead actress in a limited series or a movie category, nominating a group of women for their challenging, gritty roles: Kerry Washington (“Confirmation”), Sarah Paulson (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”), Audra McDonald (“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill”), Felicity Huffman and Lili Taylor (“American Crime”), and Kirsten Dunst (“Fargo”).

Washington and Paulson have both stated that playing Anita Hill and Marcia Clark, respectively, have been their toughest roles ever, and both stress the responsibility of portraying living, still-active people. “You don’t have that freedom you get when playing invented characters, especially when you’ve met the real person ­— as I did, towards the end of the shoot,” notes Paulson. “And I had to battle against my own preconceptions about Marcia.

Fox Chiefs Talk Reboots, ‘X-Files’ Future and Strains of Peak TV Era

8 August 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The enormity of the TV series landscape these days has helped fuel Fox’s push into the past with reboots and revivals of familiar properties. But shows with built-in brand names still have to earn their way on to the schedule, Fox Television Group chief Dana Walden and Fox entertainment president David Madden emphasized Monday during the exec Q&A session of Fox’s Television Critics Association presentation.

“Reboots are not a guarantee of success — we certainly know that as well as anyone,” Walden said. “Our hope was that the well-known titles — if and only if well-executed — would lighten the load on our marketing team (by) taking advantage of viewers’ awareness.”

Bowing on Fox in the 2016-17 season are new iterations of “24” and “Prison Break” and adaptations of movies “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist.” The explosion of TV series options for viewers has made reboots more appealing, Walden said. but in other ways they face a higher »
