‘The Cleaning Lady’ Gets Trailer; Élodie Yung Talks Portraying Cambodian Immigrant With A Fighter’s Spirit In Fox Drama Series – TCA
When Élodie Yung signed on to The Cleaning Lady, she relished the opportunity to play a character of many layers—a Cambodian immigrant coming from the Philippines to America who meets “extreme situations” with remarkable resilience, and will do whatever it takes to protect her son.

“My dad came from another country and had to make his own place in France, so I could very much relate to that. I was so glad I could be seen for the first time for really who I am as a whole person, with my origins, my background, and also just what I could bring as an actor,” she said today during a Fox TCA panel, which saw a first trailer for the series unveiled. “It was such a strong part, and draining, but beautiful to have.”

Every Scripted TV Series from Bipoc Creators or Showrunners in 2022-2023

Every Scripted TV Series from Bipoc Creators or Showrunners in 2022-2023
Progress continues to be incremental in front of and behind television cameras in Hollywood. An October 2021 UCLA Television Diversity study examined 461 scripted television shows airing or streaming during the 2019-20 season. It revealed that only 32.1 percent of scripted broadcast network shows, 28.1 percent on cable TV, and 26.8 percent on streaming platforms, featured majority non-white casts. Each category saw an increase of roughly 2-3 percent over the previous season. In summary, despite popular claims of a “renaissance” for Bipoc creatives in Hollywood (especially for African Americans), there’s still much work to be done on the matter of inclusion in all job areas.

As their study states, the Bipoc group is not proportionately represented to their share of the U.S. population, even though audience interest in programming with talent that represents the nation’s diversity, continues to increase.

When Bipoc narratives are controlled by non-bipoc creatives, character story lines may lack authenticity,

Inside the Antihero Advancements of ‘Dr. Death,’ ‘Kevin Can F**k Himself,’ ‘The Cleaning Lady’

Inside the Antihero Advancements of ‘Dr. Death,’ ‘Kevin Can F**k Himself,’ ‘The Cleaning Lady’
It’s been 28 years since the start of ABC’s “NYPD Blue,” 22 years since the premiere of HBO’s “The Sopranos” and 13 years since the launch of AMC’s “Breaking Bad.” And if the ratings guides and critical buzz for current shows have taught us anything, it’s that people still love an antihero story. But they are also pleased that the genre has evolved beyond stories of white men doing bad things.

Miranda Kwok, who developed “The Cleaning Lady” based on an Argentine format, thought she’d be pitching her dramatic tale about a Cambodian doctor-turned-American-hotel employee pulled into a moral gray area to cable and streaming networks. Instead, her partners at Warner Bros. Television said, “Let’s shoot for broadcast,” she recalls, because there was “definitely a greater appetite and desire for more diverse voices and perspectives.” The show was ultimately sold to Fox.

Sporting glasses and a huge grin, Suárez embodied the huge energies of a young generation of Latin American film producers who took Buenos Aires’ Ventana Sur by storm from its second edition in 2010, turning a sales market into an informal international co-production meet attracting thousands.

The 100 Season 7 Episode 7 Review: The Queen's Gambit
When is it too late to have specific conversations?

The 100 brings that question our way while also making us wonder about the communication it is trying to have with its audience.

During The 100 Season 7 Episode 7, Gabriel and the others allow themselves to join the cult in Bardo. Gabriel gets to help code-break while the others are presumably disciples now.

Meanwhile, Emori was trying to unite the people in Sanctum while Sheidheda had a plan to tear them apart. Murphy and Nelson were the pawns stuck in the middle of the Sanctum chessboard, and Emori's life is now on the line.

Last but not least, Clarke and the others arrived in Bardo only to find out that Bellamy "died." And somewhere more suspicious, Anders woke up The Shepherd, who turned out to be Cadogan.
