Ahead of its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival next month, the first trailer has debuted for the upcoming drama The Parting Glass.

Via Eiff: “Denis O’Hare, Melissa Leo and Cynthia Nixon star as the siblings who reminisce about their younger sister (Anna Paquin) as they make their way to her apartment to sort through items that spark memories. In a long drive across a chilly landscape, the siblings are joined by the sister’s husband (Rhys Ifans) and their father (veteran actor Ed Asner).

‘Homicide: Life on the Street’ Cast Reunites at Paley Center

Someone managed to get Detective Frank Pembleton back in the box.

Members of the cast and production team of the critically acclaimed NBC drama “Homicide: Life on the Street” came together at the Paley Center in New York to talk about the distinctive drama that flouted many of the conventions of network TV. The main focus of the show, which ran between 1993 and 1999, was on how Baltimore police detectives passed the time while trying to solve murders. But there were few car chases, shootings or dramatic arrest scenes. “Every episode was like an affront to network television,” noted Andre Braugher,

‘I’m Dying Up Here’ Review: Season 2 Is Still a Stand-Up Drama That Feels Far Too Routine

‘I’m Dying Up Here’ Review: Season 2 Is Still a Stand-Up Drama That Feels Far Too Routine
“I’m Dying Up Here” is a mishmash of genres so out of the ordinary the series should be anything but forgettable. A dramatic peek behind the curtain of ’70s stand-up comedians that starts with a successful comic’s seemingly inexplicable suicide? That’s a premise as out there as the very idea to blend laugh-out-loud comedy acts with deep-seated drama… and yet, here we are. After a season of mixed reviews and rough ratings, the unlikely Season 2 premiere debuts with little urgency and only a few negligible alterations. Even with a bit more prosperity, these comedians are still dying — and dying slowly.

Beginning with a flashback, creator Dave Flebotte’s second season throws in a few new characters to liven things up, but they only exacerbate the existing dynamics. Take Goldie (Melissa Leo), the club owner who may or may not have burned a competing comedy club to the
