Good Behavior: Season Three? TNT Hopes to Give the Series a Conclusion

TNT still hasn't fully decided whether it will cancel or renew its Good Behavior TV show for a third season. The series earns cancellation-low linear ratings, but its numbers improve with DVR-delayed and digital platform views. Today at the Turner Upfront presentation to advertisers, the network indicated it would like to give the series some sort of send-off, but whether that will happen as part of a third and final season, or in a Good Behavior TV series finale movie is still up in the air. A TNT drama based on the Letty Dobesh novels by Blake Crouch, Good Behavior stars Michelle Dockery as thief and confidence artist Letty Raines. The cast also includes Juan Diego Botto, Terry Kinney, Lusia Strus, Joey Kern, and Nyles Julian Steele. Read More…

‘Good Behavior’: TNT Trying To “Properly Bring It To Conclusion” With Final Chapter

Despite solid reviews and a popular star, Michelle Dockery in her follow-up to hit Downton Abbey, TNT’s drama series Good Behavior never found a wide audience. Its Live+same day ratings have been low, a fraction of the second lowest-rated original drama series on the network. Still, the show has done some solid business in delayed viewing and on digital platforms, drawing younger viewers, and has become a cult favorite. “It has a passionate audience,” TNT and TBS…

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie
Last Year’s Winner: Nicole Kidman, “Big Little Lies

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: A nominee from HBO or FX has won this category nine times in the last 10 years — Laura Linney’s victory for “The Big C: Hereafter” in 2013 is the lone standout.

Fun Fact: Helen Mirren has the most trophies in this category. She’s won four times, including two for the “Prime Suspect” series.

Can Laura Dern become an Emmy winner two years in a row? After snagging her first trophy last year for “Big Little Lies,” Dern seems fated to snag another nomination (at least) for her hailed turn in HBO’s “The Tale.” The film earned rave reviews out of Sundance before the premium cable network picked it up, and the beloved Dern is front-and-center in the landmark cinematic memoir.

But she’s not the only one earning early Emmy buzz. Jessica Biel generated a

Betsy Heimann (‘Godless’ costume designer) explains how John Wayne’s costumer prepared her for female-centric western [Exclusive Video Interview]

For costume designer Betsy Heimann, the most unusual aspect of Netflix’s western limited series “Godless” was how much it focused on “these women who were put in a circumstance where they had to improvise.” Written and directed by Scott Frank, the show follows a murderous outlaw (Jeff Daniels) hunting down an ex-protege (Jack O’Connell). His search leads him to a small town in New Mexico that, after a mining accident, is populated almost entirely by women, including Michelle Dockery and Merritt Wever. The veteran costumer was excited to “put my stamp on it by showing [women] doing all different things than you would normally” in the male-dominated genre. Watch our exclusive video interview with Heimann above.

After 'Three Billboards' and 'American Animals', what's next for North Carolina production?

Nc is open for filming, after a confusing few years.

Currently, North Carolina can celebrate the Oscar wins for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and the forthcoming theatrical release of Sundance hit American Animals, a Kentucky-set story directed by British director Bart Layton that was mostly shot near Charlotte, including at Davidson College.

These two films coincidentally both have British production companies – Blueprint Pictures and Raw, respectively, and Film4 backs both features. They are a clear signal to both Us and international producers that Nc is open for filming, after a confusing few years.

Michelle Dockery Discusses ‘Downton Abbey,’ ‘Good Behavior,’ ‘Godless’ at Cannes Masterclass
British actress Michelle Dockery, who receives the Variety Icon Award at TV drama festival Canneseries in Cannes, Southern France on Saturday, spoke at a masterclass earlier in the day about her career and roles in TV series like “Downton Abbey,” “Good Behavior” and “Godless.”

Her training at Guildhall drama school gave her a classical training best suited to a career on the stage. It also ingrained in her the idea that she should see herself as part of an ensemble,

Michelle Dockery on Playing "Brilliant, Complex Women" from 'Downton Abbey' to 'Godless'

For Michelle Dockery, it's all been a matter of timing.

In 2010, the British stage actress got her TV breakthrough playing Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey, a big-budget period drama that launched at the start of a global boom in high-end series. After 6 hit seasons of Downton (which garnered Dockerty one Golden Globe and three Emmy nominations for her performance), she shifted to the U.S., playing thief and con artist Letty Raines on TNT's Good Behavior, one of a new wave of cutting edge dramas coming out of the American cable channels. And, last year, she starred as...

  • Indiewire
Television is staking more ground in Cannes, and Harlan Coben thinks it’s about time. The author and creator behind Netflix’s upcoming “Safe” returns to the Croisette this weekend to head up the jury at Canneseries, a new TV festival competition taking place along side the annual MipTV market.

“Now that we’re in the golden age of television, I think it’s long overdue,” Coben told IndieWire. “I think everyone now is chomping at the bit for it. I’m really excited. I’m looking forward to walking around the convention hall, and looking at all the variety of TV that’s around, and the new perspectives. South Korea, Mexico, Israel — I really look forward to seeing what they’re doing with storytelling, because it’s just going to be different.”

Emmys 2018: Will streaming shows take over Best Limited Series like they have for dramas and TV movies?

2017 was a historic year at the Emmys thanks to Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which won Best Drama Series, and Netflix’s “Black Mirror: San Junipero,” which won Best TV Movie. Those were the first streaming shows ever to win those awards, and now streaming services are looking to expand their territory even further by launching an invasion into the Best Limited Series race.

According to the early predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users, the strongest streaming contender for Best Limited Series appears to be “Godless,” which ranks third with 7/2 odds. The seven-episode Western starring Jeff Daniels, Jack O’Connell and Michelle Dockery premiered last November, and it got off to a strong start in the awards season with a nomination for Daniels at the SAG Awards and bids for Daniels, O’Connell and Best Limited Series at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

Godless: Obsessed With Netflix's Western Series? We Have Bad News

  • BuzzSugar
Godless debuted Nov. 22 on Netflix as the streaming service's first foray into the Western genre - and if this one is any indication, the Netflix executives should now be looking for any Westerns they can get their hands on. Scott Frank's miniseries, starring Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery, Jack O'Connell, and Merritt Wever, is a beautifully shot story that plays out over seven episodes, fully taking advantage of not having to stuff all the plot into a feature-length film. Frank told Variety that he first wrote it as a film, but executive producer Steven Soderbergh (The Knick, The Girlfriend Experience) suggested that it might be better as a miniseries - and he was right. The seven-episode format really lets Frank establish the characters before moving them into confrontations with one another. The only question is, will we get more of Godless? RelatedThe Crown, Peaky Blinders, and 50 Other Titles Coming to Netflix in December Probably not.

We Tried It: Attending the Ultra-Glam, Debutante Viennese Opera Ball

What is it: The Viennese Opera Ball, a white-tie debutante ball in New York City with Austrian flair.

Who tried it: Diana Pearl, People writer/reporter

Difficulty: 2/10 — The only thing that’s challenging about attending a glamorous white-tie event is lasting the entire night in heels.

I have a lot of philosophies in life. Among them: Always order the side of fries, naps are important to mental health, and if life hands you the opportunity to get over-the-top dressed up, take it.

So when an invitation to the Viennese Opera Ball landed in my inbox, I quickly read up on the event.
