Why Ridley Scott Thinks Prestige Horror ‘Works Better’ on TV
The much-buzzed about “Hereditary” comes out today — and based on all the reviews — it appears if you catch the horror flick at your local movie theater it will traumatize you (in an elevated way) for quite some time. Or maybe just until you get home and turn on your TV.

With the resurgence of prestigious films that give you the chills, TheWrap thought we’d check in with Ridley Scott — whose 1979 film “Alien” is one of the most famed horror movies of all time — about where the classier side of the genre is headed these days. And this was while discussing one of his most recent projects: a TV show he told us was “better” than a spooky flick in a lot of ways.

“I think so, because horror, in a funny kind of way, is famous for a captive audience,” Scott said when TheWrap asked if he thought TV

Jared Harris (‘The Terror’): Horror limited series succeeds because of ‘patience and restraint in the storytelling’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
When Jared Harris read the first episode of AMC’s limited series “The Terror” he appreciated “the patience and the restraint in the storytelling. I’m sure they would’ve had a lot of pressure, since it was in the horror genre, to put a lot of different elements into that first episode.” Instead, creator David Kajganich and showrunner Soo Hugh were “content with establishing a mood, a feel and a world, and introducing you to the characters, and not feeling pressure to suddenly start delivering genre beats.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Harris above.

Emmys: Supporting Actor Categories Are Ensembles of Riches (Column)
It’s the kind of abstract problem a high-strung trader at Axe Capital might bring to Maggie Siff’s all-knowing performance coach Wendy Rhoades on Showtime’s “Billions”: How do you define a supporting role at a time when shows, particularly high-end dramas, feature increasingly large ensemble casts? Serialized storylines often bounce the focus around among core characters to keep the pot boiling.

The “Billions” season three episode “Not You, Mr. Dake” is a good example. It’s hard to argue that Siff’s character is not the lead in this episode: Wendy instigates a morally bankrupt scheme involving her husband,
