Abigail Spencer’s ‘A Beautiful Now’ Scheduled for Fall Release (Exclusive)

21 July 2016 7:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Monterey Media has acquired all U.S. and Canada rights to Daniela Amavia’s drama “A Beautiful Now,”  starring Abigail Spencer, Variety has learned exclusively.

Cheyenne Jackson, Patrick Heusinger and Sonja Kinski also star in the Unified Pictures production. Amavia directed from her own script, in which a group of friends come together to save a dancer (Spencer) who is teetering on the edge of letting go. The film asks “If your life flashed before your eyes —would you like what you see?”

The deal was negotiated with producer Lynn Kressel, Amavia and Monterey Media’s Scott Mansfield. “A Beautiful Now” premiered at the La Film Festival. The U.S. theatrical launch is planned for September /October to coincide with Spencer starring in the new NBC series “Timeless”.

“We are so looking forward to sharing this lovely, lyrical, haunting film, with its wonderfully layered performances,” Mansfield said.

7 Emmy Nominations Snubs to Look for Thursday Morning

13 July 2016 1:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Snubbed” is an imperfect term for the series and performers whose Emmy campaigns conclude Thursday morning—voters intend no disdain, to be sure—but it does capture the feeling of the TV Academy’s annual nominations. Alongside the usual suspects and pleasant surprises, there are inevitably a few disappointments, longtime favorites that lose out and freshman sensations that fail to break through. For those of us on the Emmy beat, in fact, lamenting the Academy’s selections and, yes, “snubs” is as much a rite of passage as celebrating the honorees.

The list below is far from exhaustive. For one thing, it largely excludes series that appear to be on the bubble; I’m not ready to give up on Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) in the Outstanding Lead Actress (Comedy) race, or on “The Americans” in the Outstanding Drama Series category, though both might well end up on the outside looking in. »

Emmys Dream Ballot: The Most Deserving Drama Nominees

5 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Thursday, July 14, the Television Academy will announce the nominees for the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and we have all the faith in the world they’ll get every single choice just right.

Ok, maybe they won’t, but only because the 19,000-plus voters literally can’t get every choice right. Unless all the categories squeeze out miraculous ties resulting in extra nominees — similar to last year’s Supporting Actress in a Comedy category — there are simply too many outstanding series and performers to fit on the overall ballot.

So our choices below not only represent IndieWire’s highest recommendations in the top-line drama categories, but also some of the shows and performers overlooked thus far in the campaign season. It would be grand to hear their names announced come nomination day, but we just hope they know how much their work has been appreciated this past TV season. »

16 June 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“What fresh hell is this?” Fox has officially set calendar slots for their fall TV schedule, including the premiere dates for The Exorcist, Scream Queens Season 2, and Lucifer Season 2.

Inspired by the 1971 novel and the 1973 film that both bear the same name, The Exorcist will make its series premiere on Friday, September 23rd at 9:00pm Est. Scream Queens, meanwhile, will return for its second season on Tuesday, September 20th at 9:00pm Est, and fans of Mr. Morningstar can watch Lucifer Season 2 debut on Monday, September 19th at 9:00pm Est. Below, we have the official press release with full details:

Press Release: Fox has set the fall premiere dates for its new and returning series.

All-new episodes of Gotham and Lucifer return Monday, Sept. 19. On Season Three of Gotham (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt), the origin story continues and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super-Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City. Season Two of Lucifer (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) promises to be a mother of a season, as Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) is tasked with finding his family’s matriarch, while continuing to take down criminals alongside Lapd Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

Tuesday nights of comedy begin Tuesday, Sept. 20 with the return of Brooklyn Nine-nine, New Girl and Scream Queens. Entering its fourth season, Brooklyn Nine-nine (8:00-8:30 Pm Et/Pt) returns after a season finale cliffhanger in which Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his by-the-book boss, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), were forced to enter the federal witness protection program. Then, the sixth season of ensemble comedy New Girl (8:30-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) continues to follow Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the gang as they attempt to find their respective places in the world, while begrudgingly accepting the responsibilities of adulthood – from marriage to career advancement – with often hilarious results.

From award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (“The People V. Oj Simpson: American Crime Story,” “American Horror Story,” “Nip/Tuck”), Brad Falchuk (“American Horror Story,” “Glee,” “Nip/Tuck”) and Ian Brennan (“Glee”), Season Two of Scream Queens (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) graduates from the college campus and into a hospital with a haunted past, as a new and terrifyingly funny mystery begins. Returning for Season Two are cast members Emma Roberts as Chanel Oberlin, 2016 Golden Globe Award nominee Jamie Lee Curtis as Cathy Munsch, Lea Michele as Hester Ulrich, Abigail Breslin as Chanel #5, Keke Palmer as Zayday Williams, Billie Lourd as Chanel #3, Glen Powell as Chad Radwell and Niecy Nash as Denise Hemphill. Additional cast members to be announced.

Beginning Sept. 21, Wednesdays are explosive, with the series premiere of Lethal Weapon and the return of Empire. Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, Lethal Weapon (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) follows iconic cop duo Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) and Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. Empire (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), broadcast television’s biggest hit, is a powerful drama about a family at the center of a music dynasty. This season, Empire Entertainment founder Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) sets his sights on a new streaming service; as his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon (Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson) pursues a new romantic interest; and his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers), struggle with fame and ambition.

All-new episodes of Rosewood return, followed by the series premiere of Pitch, beginning Thursday, Sept. 22. Set against the vibrant backdrop of one of the world’s hottest cities – Miami – medical procedural Rosewood (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) enters its second season as top private pathologist Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and tough-as-nails Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz) solve the Miami Pd’s most challenging cases. Pitch (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) is the dramatic and emotional story of Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury, “Under The Dome”), who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball – under the glare of a white-hot media spotlight. From executive producer Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”), the inspiring series also stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar (“Franklin & Bash,” “NYPD Blue”), Ali Larter (“Legends,” “Heroes”), Mark Consuelos (“Kingdom,” “All My Children”) and Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”).

Friday nights are terrifyingly entertaining, beginning Sept. 23, with the return of Hell’S Kitchen and the series premiere of The Exorcist. Season 16 of Hell’S Kitchen (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) welcomes a new batch of ambitious chefs who will brave Chef Gordon Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he puts them through an intense culinary academy. Then, The Exorcist (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) returns as a contemporary psychological TV thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of terrifying demonic possession. Directed by Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), the series stars Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Geena Davis (“Commander in Chief,” “Thelma & Louise”), Alfonso Herrera (“Sense8,” “The Chosen”) and Ben Daniels (“Flesh and Bone,” “House of Cards”).

Sunday Funday returns beginning Sept. 25, with the season premieres of Emmy Award-winning comedy Bob’S Burgers (7:30-8:00 Pm Et/Pt) and the unprecedented 28th season of The Simpsons (8:00-8:30 Pm Et/Pt), followed by the premiere of hybrid live-action/animated family comedy Son Of Zorn (8:30-9:00 Pm Et/Pt). Featuring the voice of Jason Sudeikis (The Last Man On Earth, “Horrible Bosses,” “We’re the Millers”), Son Of Zorn follows an animated warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean, who returns to Orange County, CA, to win back his live-action ex-wife (Cheryl Hines, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and teenage son (Johnny Pemberton, “21 Jump Street”). Rounding out the night are the 14th season premiere of creator Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy (9:00-9:30 Pm Et/Pt) and Season Three of the critically acclaimed live-action comedy The Last Man On Earth (9:30-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), created by and starring Emmy Award nominee Will Forte.

Seasoned TV Directors Field Wide Array of Job Offers

14 June 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The bad news about the plethora of options available during peak TV is that the DVRs of television directors are just as backed up as everyone else’s. The good news is that this increase in television production offers more opportunities for said directors to land jobs.

“I try to be selective in what I choose to do and I try to find the shows that seem to be the most interesting,” says Daniel Attias, who’s helmed episodes of “Homeland,” “Masters of Sex” and “Ray Donovan.” “I have to rely on word-of-mouth to just be clued into what I should investigate or I happen to see them on my own. When I’m interested in a show, or when I investigate it and find that it is interesting to me, I have to get acquainted with it. Sometimes that happens after I’ve been hired. If and when that does occur, I have to immerse myself with it by watching all the episodes I can and read all the scripts of the season.”

Attias’ latest and upcoming credits include such new series as AMC’s “Feed the Beast,” Amazon’s “Good Girls Revolt” and Hulu’s “Chance,” as well as fan-favorite “The Americans” on FX.

And he isn’t the only one with an eclectic resume. The influx in new programming has given many seasoned directors an opportunity to get in on the ground floor and help set the look and feel for new projects. Director Nicole Kassell sat through “very long, in-depth tone meetings” where “I just asked and asked and asked a lot of questions” to figure out the design of her episode from the first season of HBO’s “Vinyl.”

“The pilot was already shot and I didn’t see a complete cut of it [when I signed on]; as early as possible, I went to see it,” says Kassell, whose recent credits also include “The Americans,” HBO’s “The Leftovers” and SundanceTV’s “Rectify.” “That was really the source for the look and style of it. It was very much [pilot director and series executive producer Martin] Scorsese’s body of work, whether it was ‘Goodfellas’ or ‘Casino’ or ‘Taxi Driver.’ As a lover of film and a film student, all of those films are in my DNA already.”

Kassell and Attias both say the lines between basic and premium cable have blurred and she says the only real difference is budgets — which, for her purposes, “translates to time.”

“The budgets are at the opposite extremes of the spectrum,” Kassell says. “I think it’s a fantastic experience going from ‘Vinyl’ to ‘The Americans’ because, to me, it gives me so much respect to all of these shows that find a way to deliver fantastic stories and cinematic pieces of art within their budgets. With ‘Vinyl’ and ‘The Leftovers,’ it was truly like making a movie.”

Uta Briesewitz, whose diverse resume spans Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” to Starz’s “Black Sails,” says because she’s directed so many cable shows she has “not felt as handcuffed as you might on other shows.” This is something she’s grown used to; she spent part of her early career as a cinematographer on HBO’s “The Wire” where she had “always been given freedom.”

The ample television options have also allowed some helmers to brand themselves and be choosy, carving out careers in which living in Los Angeles or New York is not mandatory. Lynn Shelton, for example, directed the pilot episode of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat,” but chose not to take on a directing producer title so that she could continue to live in Seattle. She still frequently travels to L.A. to film episodes of “Fresh Off the Boat” and other series like Showtime’s “Shameless” and Fox’s “New Girl.” She also flies to New York to direct episodes of Netflix’s “Master of None.”

“I do think I know funny, but I’m also interested in actors,” Shelton says. “I’m really interested in performances that are grounded and have authentic feelings and that’s where the humor comes from instead of a broader approach. That’s something that I think all of the shows that I’ve worked on have … I always think of it as a dramatic-comedic mix.”

Shelton also scans projects to make sure they fit her qualifications for diversity and says she has “definitely looked at scripts that didn’t seem diverse enough, frankly.”

“I like to work on shows that I feel are adding to the conversation, culturally, instead of regurgitating the same old stuff,” she says.

The need for female and minority representation in Hollywood has been a heated topic in recent years, especially for DGA members as the focus is often on filling these roles behind the camera. Fast-rising stars on the directing circuit include Anthony Hemingway [FX’s “American Crime Story” and Wgn’s “Underground”] and Deborah Chow [USA’s “Mr. Robot” and The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries”].

Some series, like the Jenji Kohan-created “Oitnb” and Jennie Snyder Urman’s CW series “Jane the Virgin” have a reputation for hiring female helmers. Briesewitz has worked on both and is appreciative of those opportunities, but notes, “I don’t want to be put on a show that just has a lot of female characters because it’s almost like I am saying I agree to be excluded from the action-hero type shows.”

Briesewitz is prepping for her episode of Netflix’s upcoming Marvel installment, “Iron Fist.”

Of course, with so many TV series and so many seasoned directors snagging the jobs, younger, less-experienced helmers are now struggling to break into the industry. Attias, who has often mentored novice directors, has attempted to combat this problem by encouraging producers to take risks with new talent. This year, he offered to shadow Steph Green on set in exchange for allowing her a chance to direct an episode of “The Americans.”

It worked and her episode aired in May.

“Once you get the first credit, people are more willing to take the chance,” Attias says. He understands producers’ reluctance to take a gamble on such an expensive project, but adds, “it’s a big problem and I think it’s going to take people stepping up and sponsoring people to get them to break in.”

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Peter Dinklage took home his second Emmy Award for his role as Tyrion Lannister on “Game of Thrones.” Despite the impressive ensemble of the show, Dinklage could stand out again this year; he already has the best line of the season: “That’s what I do. I drink and I know things.” He could face competition from co-stars Kit Harington and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, neither of whom has been nominated yet.

Jonathan Banks is a likely repeat nominee for “Better Call Saul,” but his co-star Michael McKean was a scene stealer as well, and also the biggest villain of the season as he looked to usurp his own brother. McKean is a beloved vet who has never received an Emmy nomination and is long overdue.

We could see repeat nominations for Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan”) and Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”), as well as two actors whose shows left the air this year, »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Voters love Crazy Eyes; Uzo Aduba has landed  two consecutive Emmys (in 2014 she was submitted in the guest actor category) including last year’s supporting actress win. She could well repeat this year, but faces some serious competition from previous nominees.

Expect to see “Game of Thrones” ladies Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey return; both are coming off a strong season. A previous nominee for “ER,” Maura Tierney is fresh off a Golden Globe win for “The Affair” and could break in to the Emmy race this year.

With “Downton Abbey” having wrapped, it’s likely previous winner Maggie Smith and previous nominee Joanne Froggatt will break into the category. Also bidding farewell was “The Good Wife,” for which Christine Baranski has amassed six nominations.

There’s also some new blood to consider. Prior to Aduba, the category was won in 2012-13 by Anna Gunn for “Breaking Bad.” That show’s spinoff, »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

After seven nominations for playing Don Draper, the eighth time was the charm for Jon Hamm, who finally took home the prize last year for “Mad Men” in its final season. With Hamm now out of the race, the path is cleared for an actor who has never won for his current role. Some of the category’s frontrunners have won previously, some for lead actor, some in other categories, including Kyle Chandler (“Bloodline”), who won for “Friday Night Lights”; Bobby Cannavale (“Vinyl”), a “Boardwalk Empire” winner; Aaron Paul (“The Path”), who won for “Breaking Bad”; and “Billions” pair Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti, who took home prizes for “Homeland” and “John Adams,” respectively. Actors who have received previous noms for their current characters without a win include Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”), Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”) and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”).

‘Rectify’ & Riggs: Clayne Crawford interview

23 May 2016 8:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fans of Sundance TV’s simmering Southern Gothic saga Rectify will be champing at the bit to see what happens in the upcoming fourth season. For the time being however they’ll no doubt console themselves with the home entertainment release of Season 3. The show stars Aden Young as the wrongly-convicted Daniel Holden, whose return to his home community pricks the web of family secrets which form the core of this highly-acclaimed drama.

One of its most memorable characters is Daniel’s tortured step brother Teddy, played by Clayne Crawford. Crawford has earned plaudits for his portrayal of the complex clan member and if you don’t know his name, you may well do by the time the year is out: he’s also been cast as the new Martin Riggs in Fox’s small screen reimagining of Lethal Weapon.

He’s well-known in certain households for his role as Teddy in the intense drama Rectify. But this year Clayne Crawford will go global as the new face of the Lethal Weapon franchise, taking over the role of Martin Riggs from Mel Gibson.

Whilst interviewing him about Rectify, we couldn’t resist asking him about his new series. As you’ll see the answers he gave were refreshingly honest…!

I can’t let you go without talking about a very different sort of character you’re about to play, in Lethal Weapon

I was quite set, ready to go to Rectify for my final season and spending time with my family on my farm in Alabama when they called. I laughed in their face at the idea of even turning Lethal Weapon into a TV show, I said ‘You need to leave the fucking franchise alone, it’s great and »

First trailer for TV reboot of ‘Lethal Weapon’

18 May 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh are back in the all-new Fox series Lethal Weapon, which reboots the hit movie franchise on television, once again following cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles.

Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy Seal-turned-detective Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) moves to California to “start over” at the Lapd. He’s paired up with Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique. It’s clear from the moment they meet, this partnership could be lethal. But during their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh on a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long »
