Everything You Need to Know About the TV Adaptation of Sweetbitter

4 October 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Starz, the home of Outlander and The Girlfriend Experience, is developing your next TV obsession: Sweetbitter. The network announced on July 31 that it is working on a half-hour drama adaptation of this 2016 bestselling novel, so here's everything you need to know about the project so far. 1. It's based on a bestselling book. Sweetbitter is based on Stephanie Danler's novel of the same name, which NPR named one of the best books of 2016. The book follows the life of 22-year-old Tess, who moves to New York from Ohio and begins working at a renowned downtown restaurant, which leads her to a life of drugs, alcohol, love, dive bars, and fine dining. 2. It is inspired by Danler's own story. Danler wrote her novel while waitressing at Union Square Care and attending The New School for her Mfa, so she very much drew on her own experiences, though Tess is not a carbon copy of the author. »

'Flatliners' Composer on the 'True Blood' Scene That Catapulted His Career (Exclusive)

2 October 2017 6:32 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Composer Nathan Barr isn’t a name an ordinary person would recognize, but scour his resume and one is bound to find a television show (True Blood, The Americans) or movie (Grindhouse, Hostel) they’ve obsessed over. Now, Barr is taking his talents to Flatliners, the modern remake of the 1990 sci-fi psychological horror film toplined by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon.

But Barr, who grew up in Tokyo with musical parents and spent much of his career scoring horror films, credits his experience on True Blood, in which he served as head composer for its entire seven-season run, as his breakthrough moment. 

“Ever since True Blood, things started to take off,” the 44-year-old industry vet tells Et. “As composers and in many facets of filmmaking, you always need that one person who endorses us and the phone starts ringing. When [creator] Alan Ball hired me on True Blood, that was one of those moments.”

29 September 2017 7:19 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Even when they're not filming The Americans, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are picture perfect in every way. The couple, who are parents to son Sam (Keri is also mom to daughter Willa and son River from her previous marriage), had a sweet date night on Thursday when they attended the New York City Ballet's 2017 Fall Fashion Gala at Lincoln Center. While Matthew looked dapper in a black tux, Keri showed off some major leg in a sexy black dress. Aside from being supergiggly as they walked the pink carpet, the pair shared a sweet moment as Matthew playfully fixed Keri's hair in front of the cameras. These two always seem to have the best time together. RelatedKeri Russell Really Can't Hide Her Smile Around Matthew Rhys »

Dylan Baker (The Good Wife, Damages) has joined the Season 7 cast of the Showtime thriller as a recurring guest star, TVLine has learned. Baker will play Senator Sam Paley, a maverick U.S. Senator from the Southwest — hmmm, sound like anyone we know? — who is aggressively investigating Keane’s abuse of power. (If you remember, last season ended with an assassination attempt on Keane, which led to her getting paranoid about an internal conspiracy, having Saul arrested and cutting Carrie out of her inner circle. »

The Best TV Directors of All Time – IndieWire Critics Survey

26 September 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who is the best TV director? Why? (For old, current or upcoming shows.)

Marisa Roffman (@marisaroffman), TV Guide Magazine

The recent Emmy Awards was a good reminder of just how great television directors are right now. It was the best overall crop we’ve had in years, and one of the few categories where it felt like it could have gone any way.

But in terms of best television director, I’m partial to David Nutter. His 30-plus year resume is impressive (“The Sopranos,” “ER,” “The X-Files,” plus an Emmy win for “Game of Thrones”) and wildly varied (he’s done procedurals like “Without a Trace, »

‘Neo Yokio’ Voice Cast: A Visual Guide to Who Played Whom in New Netflix Animated Series

23 September 2017 3:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: This post contains very minor spoilers for Season 1 of “Neo Yokio.”]

Netflix has a fascinating track record with animation, taking big chances especially with adult-aimed series like “BoJack Horseman” and “F Is for Family” over the last few years. Its latest venture, “Neo Yokio,” looks nothing like either of those series — instead, it draws its visual inspiration from decades of anime as it brings us into the futuristic world created by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.

What does give “Neo Yokio” something in common with its Netflix sisters is its A-list voice cast, which features an eclectic but overall critically acclaimed group of actors, including Jaden Smith as young demon hunter Kaz, who just wants to be the most eligible bachelor in town, despite the growing sense that things might not be what they seem in this society.

Who are the other famous faces behind the scenes? Below is an illustrated guide to all of Neo Yokio’s VIPs.

President Trump Calls Emmy Award Ratings ‘the Worst Ever’ After Multiple Jokes Were Made About Him

19 September 2017 8:34 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President Donald Trump is once again taking aim at the “rigged” Emmys — with the Leader of The Free World rejoicing over the award show’s low ratings.

Trump, 71, tweeted Tuesday night a few minutes before 11 p.m. while in New York City, writing, “I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night — the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the “Deplorables.””

Sunday night’s Emmy Awards had ratings of 11.38 million viewers, which was almost even to last year’s all time audience low, according to Deadline.

Emmys 2017: Everything You Didn’t See on TV

18 September 2017 6:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sometimes, what makes Hollywood so confusing but also fascinating is how simultaneously surreal and mundane it can be, and how those two realities can coexist in such tight juxtaposition. Case in point: this year’s Emmy Awards, where one minute Sean Spicer turns up as a surprise guest on stage, eliciting a collective gasp in the audience, and the next, Keri Russell gallops into the bathroom, hiking up the hem of her dress so as not to get it dirty while waiting for an empty stall, and exclaims to nobody in particular, “Holy moly, this is nuts!”

What Russell was referring to is anybody’s guess — perhaps just the overwhelming stimuli present at any awards show — but there were a few not-televised, behind-the-scenes moments that might have been deemed “nuts” by any account.

When Spicer first popped onstage during host Stephen Colbert’s opening monologue, some Emmy guests rolled their eyes, a »

Elisabeth Moss and Jon Hamm Have a Giggly Mad Men Reunion Following Her Emmy Win

What’s better than an Emmy Awards win? Celebrating that victory with an old friend, of course.

Elisabeth Moss — who took home her first Emmy on Sunday night for her role as Offred, a quiet but shrewd rebel against a horrifically patriarchal society in The Handmaid’s Tale — was the belle of the ball at the Hulu after-party. After posing for photos on the red carpet and hitting the dance floor to Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” with her TV husband O-t Fagbenle, the actress had a warm meet up with former Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm.

Emmys: ‘This Is Us’ Beat by ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ in Key Categories, but Scores Acting Wins

17 September 2017 8:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Broadcast’s big shut-out in the major dramatic Emmy races continues, as not even NBC’s breakout “This Is Us” could top critical darling “The Handmaid’s Tale” from streaming service Hulu to take the drama series trophy. However, “This Is Us” did come out on top in lead dramatic actor and guest actor categories.

Nominated for 10 awards overall, “This Is Us” was the first broadcast show to be up for the drama series statue since 2011 (when “The Good Wife” was on the ballot for CBS). Had it won, it would have been the first broadcast drama to win since 2006 (when Fox’s “24” beat “The Sopranos” and three other broadcast titles). Furthermore, it would have marked the first NBC drama to win since “The West Wing” won its fourth consecutive Emmy in 2003.

Unfortunately, “This Is Us” didn’t fare much better in most of the other seven categories in which it was nominated, either »

Elisabeth Moss Drops Two F-Bombs After Winning First Emmy

17 September 2017 8:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After seven nominations, “The Handmaid’s Tale” star Elisabeth Moss has won her first Emmy.

And in her excitement, it looks like she may have dropped a couple of expletives. While they were muted on TV, she dropped an f-bomb as she walked up to the stage to accept her award, and then called her mother a “f—ing bada–” at the end of her speech. “You are brave and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and f–ing bada–,” she said about her mother.

Otherwise, an out-of-breath Moss thanked Hulu and MGM, in addition to Margaret Atwood, who wrote the book on which the series is based. “Margaret Atwood, oh my gosh, thank you for what you did in 1958 and thank you for what you continue to do for all of us.”

Moss was the front-runner in the category for her tour de force performance as the subjugated Offred »
