This is another partially improvised […] »

HBO Faces Major Programming Challenges as Michael Lombardo Departs

20 May 2016 6:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Lombardo may not have been pushed overboard at HBO. But as he disembarks, the ship is taking on water.

Lombardo, whom Variety reported Friday will step down as HBO programming president, is a 33-year veteran of the premium cable channel. Promoted to his current role in 2007, he oversaw the network’s resurgence following the end of “The Sopranos” and the departure of former CEO Chris Albrecht. Under current CEO Richard Plepler, he developed a fleet of hits, Emmy winners and critical darlings that includes “True Blood,” “Eastbound & Down,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Newsroom,” “Girls,” “Veep,” “True Detective” (well, the first season) and “Silicon Valley.” Lombardo’s most important legacy is “Game of Thrones,” the series that through its record-breaking Emmy hauls and outsize ratings has defined HBO in the post-“Sopranos” era.

But with “Game of Thrones” set to end after two more seasons, HBO now faces a transitional period. »

[CUSTOM_PLAYER_BRIGHTCOVE "4899822071001"] Jack Terrell was 12 years old when he found out he was adopted after he asked his mother to take his new baby brother back to where he came from.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Paris 05:59’

19 February 2016 5:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Some books make you like the characters so much that you close the covers and imagine a happy future life for them together. That rarely happens in the cinema anymore, but “Paris 05:59” is that kind of film. This might surprise some, given that its biggest talking point will be the 18-minute hardcore gay orgy at the start, yet the film, conceived in real time, is above all a story about what happens when that bolt of lightning called love suddenly strikes. Co-helmers Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau (“Family Tree”) deliver their boldest and best work so far, and while some hetero audiences will unquestionably feel sidelined by the explicit orgy, the loss is theirs.

On a marketing level, the English title doesn’t give anything away and is awkward to say, whereas a direct translation of the French title, referencing Jacques Rivette’s “Celine and Julie Go Boating,” would be lost on many. »
