Showtime Boss David Nevins on Competing With Netflix, ‘Twin Peaks’ Success and Donald Trump

Jerusalem — “As long as the demand from the audience is there, a lot of us can thrive,” said Showtime CEO David Nevins in a Q&A with Avi Nir, CEO Keshet Media Group, kicking off the two-day long Intv conference in Israel, acknowledging that the network is trying to “punch above our weight” in the light of Netflix and other streamers.

What the 'Homeland' Creator Learned on His First Trip to Trump's Washington

Since Homeland came to Showtime in 2011, showrunner and co-creator Alex Gansa has annually touched base with the U.S. intelligence community to ensure his national security drama was never too far afield.

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Alex Gansa

‘Homeland’ Review: A Riveting Season 7 Asks If the World’s Too Crazy for Even Carrie to Save

‘Homeland’ Review: A Riveting Season 7 Asks If the World’s Too Crazy for Even Carrie to Save
Just over a year ago, “Homeland” elected a female president, and today it’s still the most relevant modern-day spy series on television. Season 7 sees an administration as brutally divided as its country, a revolution on the rise, and government officials willing to take drastic efforts to preserve whatever version of America they believe in. The first episode (all that was provided in advance for critics) sees the president called “a fascist,” described as “thuggish,” and leading a vengeful witch hunt inside her own agencies.

‘Homeland’ Boss on Season 7’s Trump Inspiration, Alex Jones and Rip Peter Quinn

‘Homeland’ Boss on Season 7’s Trump Inspiration, Alex Jones and Rip Peter Quinn
“It’s going to be an interesting Homeland season,” warns Alex Gansa, showrunner of “Homeland,” which returns for its seventh (and penultimate) season on February 11.

Last season ended in an ominous, cataclysmic fashion, with Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) sacrificing himself to save then president-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) — who then went on an all-out mission to protect herself and root out her would-be assassins. That meant her former ally Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) was frozen out of her White House access, and Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), among others, was behind bars.

When the new season picks up, it’s nearly two months later, and the situation is ever more dire with Keane increasingly paranoid.

Gansa says he was inspired by the headlines coming out of Washington, D.C. and the election of Donald Trump.

“I’m just addicted to MSNBC, Fox and CNN every night,” he says. “Donald Trump didn’t win an Emmy for ‘The Apprentice,’ but

The range and diversity of music in current television was vividly showcased in a live concert Thursday night at the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood. Nearly 600 attended “Words + Music: A Concert Celebrating Music Written for Television.”

From “Empire” to “Luke Cage,” “Feud” to “Fargo,” the performance of songs, themes and score excerpts gave composers and songwriters a rare opportunity to emerge from their studios. As “Stitchers” composer Kurt Farquhar quipped at the start of the show, “we’re always in a dark, windowless room for 16 hours a day.”

Actors and showrunners, introducing many of the tunes, were complimentary about the music-making behind the scenes. Actress Chrissy Metz talked about Siddhartha Khosla’s evocative scores for “This Is Us,” Gabourey Sidibe cited the contributions of hip-hop producers Timbaland and Rodney Jerkins to “Empire,” and “Homeland” executive producer Alex Gansa regaled the crowd with tales of composer Sean Callery as if he was a more
