IFC Greenlights Scripted Comedy ‘Living With Yourself’ From ‘The Daily Show’ Producer

16 February 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

IFC has ordered new scripted comedy “Living With Yourself” to series, Variety has learned.

The series comes from “The Daily Show” exec producer Tim Greenberg, who will write and executive produce. Jeff Blitz (“The Office,” “Parks and Recreation”) is attached to direct and executive produce alongside Greenberg and Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern of Likely Story.

The story centers George Elliot, a man who is burned out and facing an impasse in both his personal and professional life. When George undergoes a novel treatment to become a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved George — revealing that his own worst enemy is himself and raising the question, do we really want to be better?

“’Living With Yourself’ is a wonderfully unique, funny show that is both improbable and completely relatable at the same time, and it complements IFC’s slate of slightly off comedies that are created by and feature some »

The best new releases to watch during Black History Month

2 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With Oscar nominated films such as Fences and Hidden Figures, and a new three-part series on Nelson Mandela, this month has plenty to offer

If you’ve ever seen or read an August Wilson play, you know that writing is how the late playwright processed the world around him – a magnificently black world filled with funk and nuance in which language plays a central role. For Wilson, though, learning how to work with that language as a writer didn’t happen overnight. “For the longest time I couldn’t make my characters talk,” Wilson told me several years ago before his death in 2005. “I thought in order to incorporate the black vernacular into literature, the language had to be changed or altered in some way to sound more clear … until I realized that it’s no less romantic and meaningful to say, ‘It’s cold outside.’” As a play, Wilson’s Fences, »

The Most Inspiring Actresses Blazing a Trail on TV Today — IndieWire Critics Survey

31 January 2017 8:33 AM, PST | 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: Which actress is blazing a trail for those who follow her? (Editor’s Note: This question was inspired by the recent loss of Mary Tyler Moore.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

The first person who came to mind for me is Constance Wu. She’s not only starring in the first successful* American sitcom focused on an Asian family (*apologies to Margaret Cho!) in “Fresh Off the Boat,” but she was an early standout and favorite for viewers because of her charm and comedic chops.

Yet Wu is also very vocal on social media, speaking out on behalf of causes that matter to her. Recently, she mentioned how she was being cautioned, »

Ben Mendelsohn, Edie Falco & More to Lead Nicole Holofcener’s ‘The Land of Steady Habits’

‘Person To Person’ Review: Tavi Gevinson And Philip Baker Hall Shine In This Charming New York City Mosaic — Sundance 2017

21 January 2017 9:35 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dustin Guy Defa’s “Person to Person” is a gentle summer breeze of a movie that’s set during an early fall day. Amiably unstuck in time without feeling anachronistic, Defa’s second feature pulls off the trick of offering an analog version of New York in a digital age. Threading together enough vignettes to compete with a young Paul Thomas Anderson, Defa bounces between a motley crew of characters, all of whom are living together on their own time. On their own, they don’t add up to much, but play them together and they cohere into the cinematic equivalent of vinyl.

Dusting off a title that Defa previously used for a beloved 2014 short, the feature-length version of “Person to Person” isn’t an adaptation of that earlier work so much as a shaggy expansion pack. In fact, the two films might seem entirely unrelated if not for their one shared character, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Landline’

20 January 2017 6:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When a director crafts a youth comedy that’s also a pop-culture period piece, like “Everybody Wants Some!!” or “Twentieth Century Women,” it’s important for the audience to feel they know why — to know what it is about that moment that ignited the filmmaker’s imagination, beyond his or her desire to sprinkle a movie with the mix-tape nuggets, hipster TV choices, and hairstyles of their youth. “Landline,” the pleasingly spiky and confident second feature directed and co-written by Gillian Robespierre (“Obvious Child”), is set in Manhattan in the long-ago, far-away, now-exotic year of 1995, and it’s fun to hook into the movie’s remember-this? vibe — the references to slam poetry and Lorena Bobbitt and eyebrow rings and Must-See TV, to renting “Curly Sue” at Blockbuster (and actually thinking it’s funny), to Hillary Clinton as a fashion role model, to second-hand CD stores with world-music listening stations.

Dennis O’Neil: Ecclesiastes

19 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

 

There, on the mountain and the sky,

On all the tragic scene they stare.

One asks for mournful melodies;

Accomplished fingers begin to play.

Their eyes mid many wrinkles, their eyes,

Their ancient, glittering eyes, are gay.

William Butler Yeats • Lapis Lazuli

Here we are, having our last visit before the big hokey pokey on the Potomac and I am being reminded of post-apocalyptic fiction. If you can’t guess why I’m suffering this brain scratch, maybe you can be excused.

Now, for those of you still with me, hey gang – let’s talk end of the world!

Time was when apocalypses were rare, if not nonexistent, on theater screens and – I’m taking a flyer here – utterly absent from video. Today, though, IMDb’s entry lists 50 films that qualify as post-apocalyptic and surely there are more on the way. Why the deluge?

I can think of only four »

Courtney Moorehead Balaker’s “Little Pink House” to Open Athena Film Festival

18 January 2017 10:02 AM, PST | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Catherine Keener in “Maladies”: Tribeca Film Festival

The Athena Film Festival announced today that “Little Pink House,” written and directed by Courtney Moorehead Balaker, will screen on Thursday, February 9 as the fest’s Opening Night film.

Based on the true story of Susette Kelo, “Little Pink Houses” tells the story of a nurse who emerges as a reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests. Two-time Oscar nominee Catherine Keener (“Enough Said”) plays the title role. Jeanne Tripplehorn (“Criminal Minds”) co-stars.

Telling Kelo’s story has been a long time coming for Moorehead Balaker — and for the Athena Film Festival. The “Little Pink House” script was a finalist on the 2015 Athena List, a selection of screenplays with female leads or protagonists that have yet to be made into films.

“Bringing Susette’s story to the screen has been a passion of mine for years and I’m very honored by the Athena Film Festival’s invitation to open the festival,” said Moorehead Balaker in a statement. “Susette is a model of courage and defiance, and Catherine Keener’s outstanding performance perfectly embodies Susette’s spirit and drive. I’m grateful to the Athena Film Festival for showcasing her story and for giving ‘Little Pink House’ the opportunity to come full circle from Athena List Finalist to opening night film.”

Women and Hollywood’s Founder and Publisher, Melissa Silverstein, co-founded the Athena Film Festival and serves as its artistic director. She commented, “‘Little Pink House’ highlights an incredible message of woman’s courage against all odds and standing up for what is right. This is the first film from the Athena List program to be made and the fact that it will open the festival is an enormous thrill for all of us,” she emphasized.

After the Opening Night screening of “Little Pink House,” Moorehead Balaker and the real-life Susette Kelo will participate in an audience Q&A.

Little Pink House’s” official synopsis reads, “Susette’s battle goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and the controversial 5–4 decision in ‘Kelo vs. City of New London’ gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse.”

The Athena Film Festival is four-day event honoring “courageous and audacious women in real life and the fictional world,” and includes features, documentaries, and shorts. The festival will run from February 9–12 at Barnard College in New York City.

Visit the festival’s website to purchase festival tickets and passes, or to find our more information.

Courtney Moorehead Balaker’s “Little Pink House” to Open Athena Film Festival was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Likely Story Turns 10: How ‘The Circle’ Producer Carved Out a Niche at a Tough Time for Indie Film

4 January 2017 1:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Most days, producer Anthony Bregman makes the long trek down Manhattan’s flank, winding his way from his home on the Upper West Side to his office in Soho. He’ll make calls to filmmakers or business associates as he navigates the city’s thoroughfares, keeping track of the various film and television projects that he’s juggling at any one time.

It’s that kind of commitment that’s made Bregman and his company Likely Story a favored home for filmmakers such as Nicole Holofcener, Charlie Kaufman, and John Carney, all of whom have several films and shows in various states of development with the company. It’s also the kind of daily calisthenics that give Bregman the liberty to enjoy an afternoon cookie as he settles down in a midtown coffee shop to talk about Likely Story’s tenth anniversary. Over its decade in the business, Likely Story »
