Angela Bassett and Patricia Arquette in Talks to Star in Cindy Chupack’s “Otherhood”

Bassett in “Black Nativity”: Phil Bray/Fox Searchlight

Angela Bassett and Patricia Arquette may be joining forces for Cindy Chupack’s feature directorial debut. The duo are in talks to topline “Otherhood,” a Netflix feature comedy about three mothers and close friends who decide to go to New York and try to patch things up with their estranged sons. Deadline broke the news.

Bassett and Arquette would play two of the three main characters. The third character has yet to be cast.

Chupack has been attached to the project since 2014 when Allison Janney and Susan Sarandon were originally set to star. She and Mark Andrus (“As Good as It Gets”) adapted the script from William Sutcliffe’s book “Whatever Makes You Happy.”

Bassett and Arquette are exec producing. Cathy Schulman of Welle Entertainment and Women in Film is among “Otherhood’s” producers. Production will kick off in New York in June.

Tonya Harding and Sasha Farber want Margot Robbie and Allison Janney in their ‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ routines
If Margot Robbie and Allison Janney stop by “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” to cheer on Tonya Harding and Sasha Farber, they might not just be in the audience. Asked by “Access Hollywood” if the “I, Tonya” stars will visit, the pair had some big plans for their VIP guests.

“They’re gonna be in the number,” Farber says. “We want them in the number, right?”

“Yes, yes!” Harding replies.

We can see it now: Harding and Farber will do a dance trio with Robbie, and then Janney will interrupt with Little Man perched on her shoulder and her shiny new Oscar in tow to declare, “Well, my storyline is disappearing right now. What the f—.”

In all seriousness, Harding has no idea if Robbie and Janney will stop by yet. “I hope so,

Emmys 2018: Are we underestimating Pamela Adlon (‘Better Things’) – again?

Emmys 2018: Are we underestimating Pamela Adlon (‘Better Things’) – again?
Pamela Adlon (“Better Things”) surprised many awards-watchers when she received an Emmy nomination last year for Best Comedy Actress for her role as a divorced actress raising her three daughters as a single mom. We had egg on our faces after ranking her 23rd in that category. Will she earn another bid in 2018? She’s in a better position now than she was last year, placed ninth in our predictions with 40/1 odds, but could we still be underestimating her? A few of our top users think so.

Our official Emmy predictions are based on the combined forecasts of more than 1,200 Gold Derby users, but not all users are created equal. Our Top 24 Users got the highest scores out of the more than 3,000 users who predicted last year’s nominations, so their predictions are especially influential in generating our racetrack odds. Currently three of them are betting on a repeat nomination for Adlon,

Inside Tonya Harding’s Return to the Spotlight Over 20 Years After Nancy Kerrigan Was Attacked

Inside Tonya Harding’s Return to the Spotlight Over 20 Years After Nancy Kerrigan Was Attacked
Following the release of the critically acclaimed film I, Tonya, Tonya Harding’s time in the spotlight has changed drastically since 1994, when her rival Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed on the leg at a practice before the 1994 national skating championships.

On Friday, ABC announced that (after much speculation) the controversial figure skater, 47, would be joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars: Athletes.

Allison Janney, who won an Academy Award for playing Harding’s mother, Lavona, previously opened up about how working on the film, which portrayed Harding’s story in a sympathetic light, completely changed her view on what

‘Killing Eve’ could be first show to field two Best Drama Actress Emmy nominees in 16 years

‘Killing Eve’ could be first show to field two Best Drama Actress Emmy nominees in 16 years
Killing Eve” could make a killing at the Emmys — specifically in Best Drama Actress. The BBC America series has two leading ladies, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, and if they both get shortlisted, the category would feature two co-stars for the first time in 16 years.

The last time a show double-dipped in Best Drama Actress was “Six Feet Under” in 2002, when Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths lost to Allison Janney (“The West Wing”). For the three years before that, “The Sopranos” stars Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco faced off, with the former winning twice. The ‘90s had two more co-star pairings in 1997 (“ER”’s Julianna Margulies and Sherry Stringfield) and 1994.

Drama actress co-star nominees occurred with regularity in the ‘80s, thanks to “Cagney & Lacey” (Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless) and “L.A. Law” (Susan Dey and Jill Eikenberry). “Dallas” (Barbara Bel Geddes and Linda Gray), “Hill Street Blues” (Barbara Babcock

Mariska Hargitay (‘Law & Order: Svu’) opens up about ‘culture of shame and isolation’ for abuse survivors in new interview

Mariska Hargitay (‘Law & Order: Svu’) opens up about ‘culture of shame and isolation’ for abuse survivors in new interview
“I think that for so long survivors have been living in a culture of shame and isolation,” reveals “Law & Order: Svu” cast member Mariska Hargitay in a new interview. After playing sex crimes investigator Olivia Benson for so many years, Hargitay tells “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah that fans now feel comfortable sharing their own stories of sexual abuse with her. “I think that this fictionalized character maybe was the first person that showed empathy and compassion, and they knew that Olivia was always for the victim first and felt safe there. Hopefully now that is indeed changing.”

Tracee Ellis Ross (‘Black-ish’) aiming to be second black Best Comedy Actress Emmy champ

Tracee Ellis Ross (‘Black-ish’) aiming to be second black Best Comedy Actress Emmy champ
Maybe the third time will be the charm for Tracee Ellis Ross. The “Black-ish” star has lost her past two Best Comedy Actress Emmy nominations to Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”), but with the six-time reigning champ out this year, it could be anybody’s game. And if Ross does pull it off, she’d make history as just the second black winner of the category and first in 37 years.

Isabel Sanford (“The Jeffersons”) was the first and thus far only woman to break that barrier, way back in 1981. She is also the most nominated black actress in the category, having contended seven times for “The Jeffersons.”

Mom: Season Six Renewal for CBS Thursday Night Comedy

It's not Mother's Day yet, but CBS had renewed its Mom TV show for a sixth season. The dysfunctional family comedy was never in any real cancellation danger. It not only remains a strong Nielsen ratings performer for the Tiffany Network -- its ratings even improved in season five, so the early renewal makes sense. A CBS sitcom, Mom stars Anna Faris, Allison Janney, Jaime Pressly, Matt Jones, Sadie Calvano, Blake Garrett Rosenthal, Mimi Kennedy, Beth Hall, and William Fichtner.

What multi-camera sitcom will get an Emmy nomination for Best Comedy Directing: ‘Will & Grace,’ ‘Roseanne,’ ‘Big Bang’ … ? [Poll]

What multi-camera sitcom will get an Emmy nomination for Best Comedy Directing: ‘Will & Grace,’ ‘Roseanne,’ ‘Big Bang’ … ? [Poll]
For the first time in seven years at the Emmys, a multi-camera comedy will be nominated for Best Comedy Directing — because a new rule mandates it. One slot is now reserved for the multi-camera contender that receives the most votes. The revised rule book that the Emmys published last month actually states that nominees will be proportional to the number of single-camera versus multi-camera submissions, with at least one slot reserved for each type, but it has been at least a decade since there have been enough relative multi-camera submissions to theoretically unlock a second slot.

SEEour video slugfest discussing the new rule and other comedy races.

The Emmys have been gradually switching to proportional nominations in recent years; this is the highest-profile category to adopt it. Best Half-Hour Production Design has been the only race to proportionately nominate based on single-camera versus multi-camera submissions for the past four years
