“Abby’s”

From the producers of “The Good Place” comes a hilariously aspirational new comedy about the best bar in San Diego, home to good prices, great company and, of course, Abby. This unlicensed, makeshift bar nestled in her backyard is the opposite of everything annoying about today’s party scene. There are rules at Abby’s: no cell phones (not even to “look something up”), earning a seat at the bar takes time and losing a challenge means drinking a limey, sugary “not-beer” drink. As the oddball cast of regulars will tell you, hanging out at Abby’s is a coveted honor. But once you’re in, you’re family.

The cast includes Natalie Morales, Nelson Franklin, Kimia Behpoornia, Jessica Chaffin, Leonard Ouzts and Neil Flynn.

Josh Malmuth will write and executive produce. Pamela Fryman will direct and executive produce the pilot. Michael Schur and David Miner also executive produce.

“Manifest”

When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.

The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur.

Jeff Rake will write and executive produce. David Frankel will direct and executive produce the pilot. Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke also executive produce. “Manifest” is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Compari Entertainment.

“New Amsterdam”

Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin, the institution’s newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before. Not taking “no” for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital — the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof — and return it to the glory that put it on the map.

The cast includes Ryan Eggold, Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine.

David Schulner will write and executive produce. Kate Dennis will direct and executive produce the pilot. Peter Horton also executive produces. Dr. Eric Manheimer will produce. “New Amsterdam” is produced by Universal Television, Pico Creek Productions and Mount Moriah.

I Feel Bad

Emet is the perfect mom, boss, wife, friend and daughter. Ok, she’s not perfect. In fact, she’s just figuring it out like the rest of us. Sure, she feels bad when she has a sexy dream about someone other than her husband, or when she pretends not to know her kids when they misbehave in public, or when she uses her staff to help solve personal problems. But that’s Ok, right? Nobody can have it all and do it perfectly. From executive producer Amy Poehler comes a modern comedy about being perfectly Ok with being imperfect.

The cast includes Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Aisling Bea, Zach Cherry, Johnny Pemberton and James Buckley.

Emily Blunt Wouldn’t Want a ‘Devil Wears Prada’ Sequel to Detract from ‘How Special the Original Is’ — Watch

Emily Blunt Wouldn’t Want a ‘Devil Wears Prada’ Sequel to Detract from ‘How Special the Original Is’ — Watch
Emily Blunt makes her horror film debut today in theaters nationwide — starring in husband John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place” — but she’s torn about whether she wants to reprise her breakout role in “The Devil Wears Prada.” During an appearance on “The Jess Cagle Interview,” Blunt said about a possible sequel to the 2006 film, “If everyone did it I would be up for it,” then added, “I don’t know” if there’s going to be a second film. “I almost hope it doesn’t [happen] because I think sometimes when you sequel everything kind of dilutes how special the original is.” (A source close to the studio said no sequel was in the works.)

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna wrote the adapted screenplay for “The Devil Wears Prada,” based on the novel by Lauren Weisberger, a former assistant to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The roles based on Weisberger

Weinstein Co. Ordered to Pay $2M to 'One Chance' Director After Distribution Dispute Settlement

Weinstein Co. Ordered to Pay $2M to 'One Chance' Director After Distribution Dispute Settlement
The Weinstein Co. has agreed to pay $2 million to settle a dispute with a director, but it hasn't yet written the first check — which could mean one more party will line up to collect a debt if the distributor declares bankruptcy as it has signaled it would.

David Frankel in 2016 sued TWC for fraud, claiming the distributor buried his film One Chance after agreeing to a wide release. The James Corden-led film, based on the story of Britain's Got Talent star Paul Potts, was released on 43 screens and brought in only $100,000 at the domestic...

Meryl Streep in ‘August: Osage County’: A look back at her 18th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘August: Osage County’: A look back at her 18th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 18 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In 2006, Meryl Streep and director David Frankel scored box office gold – the greatest financial success of Streep’s career at that point – with “The Devil Wears Prada.” Given her affection for working alongside filmmakers on several occasions, it was a sure thing the paths of Streep and Frankel would cross again.

They reunited six years later with “Hope Springs” (2012), a genial, breezy comedy-drama that at last paired Streep with Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones. While hardly a smash hit, the picture, which found both stars in fine form, was warmly received by critics and audiences alike. No Oscar nominations, however.
