Deadline is reporting that Hillary Clinton’s failed bid to become the first female President of the United States could be heading to the small screen, as TriStar Television has optioned the rights to the book Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign to develop as a limited series.
The official description for the book reads: “It was never supposed to be this close. And of course she was supposed to win. How Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump is the riveting story of a sure thing gone off the rails. For every Comey revelation or hindsight acknowledgment about the electorate, no explanation of defeat can begin with anything other than the core problem of Hillary’s campaign–the candidate herself. Through deep access to insiders from the top to the bottom of the campaign, political writers Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, »

The only people, it seems, who enjoy endlessly going over the story of last November’s election more than the massively insecure President Of The United States, is, it seems Hollywood executive. We already know that the next season of “American Horror Story” will be election themed, the team behind “Recount” and “Game Change” are developing a miniseries based around the Clinton/Trump race last year, and Annapurna and “Hurt Locker” writer Mark Boal are developing a project as well.

When “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” opened May 2, 1997, Variety described it as an “odd mix of sophisticated and lowbrow humor” but was enthused about the Mike Myers-Jay Roach collaboration. The film had cost less than $20 million so it was profitable with a modest $67 million worldwide. There was no deal in place for a sequel, but New Line execs noticed the comedy was a huge hit in home video and on cable. When the studio greenlit a sequel, many rival execs were surprised: They were still defining success solely by domestic box office.
Boosted by massive marketing tie-ins, 1999’s “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” saw a spectacular domestic opening weekend of $55 million and completed its global run with $312 million. “Austin Powers in Goldmember” (2002) scored $296 million worldwide. After many years, rumors persist that a fourth edition is imminent. As Powers himself would say, “Yeah, baby!”

HBO has announced that it is developing a miniseries based upon the 2016 Presidential Election and Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in what has been described as one of the biggest political upsets of all time.
The miniseries will be based upon the upcoming third instalment of Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s Game Change book series, and will reunite director Jay Roach and executive producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, who were behind the Emmy-winning 2012 HBO film Game Change, which explored John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.
“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, whose work on their bestselling book Game Change set the bar for political reporting and storytelling inside a presidential campaign,” said Len Amato, president of HBO Films. “Reuniting Game Change director and executive producer Jay Roach and Playtone producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman with Mark and John for »

I got a shiver of anticipation when I read the announcement on Monday that Steven Spielberg would direct “The Post,” a drama about The Washington Post’s role in exposing the Pentagon Papers, starring Tom Hanks as the fabled Post editor Ben Bradlee and Meryl Streep as publisher Katharine Graham. Set in 1971, the movie will center on the paper’s war with the White House over whether the Post had the right to publish the top-secret military documents — first leaked to The New York Times by Daniel Ellsberg — that charted the escalation and futility of the Vietnam War. I have no idea if Spielberg has been mulling this movie over for a while (the rights were bought by producer Amy Pascal last fall), but everything about the timing suggests that it’s no coincidence the announcement was made 45 days after the inauguration of Donald Trump. “The Post” is clearly a »

On The Late Show Friday, Colbert compiled a team of experts — including an architect, an engineer, a concrete guy and an interior designer — to come up with some rough estimates for the “so big, so strong, so powerful” wall. (As a reminder, Trump has just three years and 11 months to complete construction if he wants to keep his campaign promise.)
After concluding that the wall would have to be at least 100 feet tall, »
“They spent an increasing amount of money on less episodes, so it’s gonna be much bigger in scale, the CGI,” Jon Snow’s portrayer told The Huffington Post. “We’re trying new things, experimenting with new camera techniques. I think we’re trying to break boundaries and push past boundaries in these final two seasons.”
And Harington would know. The actor said he’s “done more” in Season 7 “than I’ve ever done, »
Grrr arggg! Into every generation an excellent TV show is born: One show in all the world. The Chosen One.
It’s been 20 years since Buffy Summers, Mr. Pointy, The Bronze, and Giles’ always-smudged spectacles graced our small screens, and the world has never been the same (mostly because she saved it… a lot).
There were plenty of quips (“Out. For. A. Walk. B**ch.”), tears (Spike’s undying devotion, sob), and frights (bunnies, plus demons and stuff), but Buffy the Vampire Slayer was so much more than that.
The Joss Whedon masterpiece created several feminist icons, spoke to addiction struggles, portrayed the first lesbian sex scene on broadcast television, showed that vampires were sexy long before Twilight and made it ok to wear pink leather pants in public… well, sort of.
Whether you were Team Angel, Team Spike or kind of just wanted Giles and Joyce to get together, the show had »
HBO Films has ordered a new miniseries based off the third installment of Mark Halperin and John Heilemann's Game Change series about the 2016 presidential election. Tom Hanks will serve as the series' executive producer.
The miniseries will chronicle Donald Trump's strange and often controversial campaign for the presidency that led to one of America's biggest political upsets. Halperin and Heilemann were behind two previous HBO productions on unconventional elections, including the 2008 film Recount based off the 2000 presidential election and 2012's Game Change, which chronicled the 2008 election and starred »
Eager to relive the 2016 presidential election? No? Well, even if you aren’t, HBO is taking us back there anyway.
The network is enlisting the team behind the Emmy-winning 2012 TV movie Game Change to make a miniseries based on President Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton — aka “the most stunning political upset of all time,” per HBO’s release. The untitled miniseries will be based on the upcoming book about the election from Game Change authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

HBO Films has greenlit a miniseries that will chronicle the events of the 2016 presidential election, Variety has learned.
The TV project is based on the yet-to-be-released third “Game Change” novel by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, co-authors of the book series that influenced HBO’s 2012 film “Game Change.” The producers behind “Game Change” are on board for the upcoming miniseries.
The untitled miniseries will tell the story of the biggest political upset of all time, Donald Trump’s “dramatic, improbable victory” over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, as described by HBO.
Jay Roach will direct and will serve as executive producer with Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, who produced HBO’s Emmy and Golden Globe winning film “Game Change,” which told the story of the 2008 United States presidential election campaign of John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin, and starred Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris.

Halfway into Donald Trump's first 100 days as President of the United States, and someone has already commissioned a cinematic treatment of the long and frequently absurd election that put him in office.
HBO is set to chronicle the events of the recent presidential election, much as they did in 2012 telepic Game Change — only this time it will be expanded to a miniseries. Also like Game Change, the yet-to-be-titled project will be directed by Jay Roach and based on source material from Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

The hugely successful fantasy saga’s seventh season will consist of (this should be an easy one to remember) seven episodes, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed last April. At the time, the pair also hinted that the yet-to-be-officially-ordered eighth and final season would only feature six episodes, although HBO president Casey Bloys told TVLine that an exact episode count remains in flux.

Is this week’s The Good Fight picking a fight with a rival network’s hit series?
The CBS All Access legal drama takes aim at Law & Order: Svu this Sunday, basing a case on NBC’s controversial decision not to air an episode of Svu that was modeled on President Donald Trump. In the Good Fight episode, entitled “Stoppable: Requiem for an Airdate,” a TV writer who works for “one of those Chicago shows” leaks an episode he wrote based on Trump after his network refuses to air it, and ends up getting sued by the network. (CBS hasn »
If you’re into minimalism… you’re gonna love Game of Thrones‘ Season 7 poster.
The teaser image, first seen this week at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, evokes two of the the HBO fantasy series’ favorite themes: fire (often represented by Daenerys and her fire-breathing babies) and ice (commonly associated with northern son Jon Snow). But aside from that? Yeah, the elemental imagery is about all you get.
There’s no premiere date listed, which is no surprise, given that the premium cabler hasn’t yet »
Showtime today made good on chief David Nevins’ comments that he’d love to continue the premium network’s relationship with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. It has ordered a new season of their political documentary series The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth. It will return at 8 Pm Sunday, March 19, examining President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office. Halperin and Heilemann (Game Change, Double Down) will be back, and Mark McKinnon will… »
