The office life wasn't for Jane Curtin. "The lighting is terrible," she quipped to an audience of fellow actors at a recent SAG-AFTRA Foundation Q&A in NYC.

‘Roseanne’ Return Boosts Multicam Shooting Style That Once Defined Sitcoms

With high-quality shows coming at viewers from streaming services, cable channels and even broadcast networks, TV execs and fans alike are all in on the new Golden Age of Television. And most of these programs — for example, HBO’s “Westworld,” Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and CBS’ “The Good Fight” — have a decidedly single-camera cinematic look.

But there’s another TV format that has been the industry’s bread and butter since “I Love Lucy” and “The Honeymooners” kept people glued to their screens in the 1950s — the multicamera sitcom, less popular today than it was during its heyday but still going strong.

Two of the projects boast “Will & Grace” star Sean Hayes as an executive producer.

‘The Crown’: What Emmy Frontrunner John Lithgow Learned About Acting By Playing Winston Churchill

‘The Crown’: What Emmy Frontrunner John Lithgow Learned About Acting By Playing Winston Churchill
If you weren’t at John Lithgow’s 70th birthday celebration in London, you missed the chance to party with some of Britain’s most elite actors.

“My wife threw a 70th birthday party for me for about 50 people, and she and I were the only Americans,” the actor told IndieWire. “Maybe 60, 70 percent of these people were actors, but only half of them were actors from ‘The Crown.’ The others were people that I’d worked with on other projects – Jonathan Price, and Jim Broadbent, and David Suchet. They came in one after another and it was this constant moment of, ‘What are you doing here?’ They all knew each other.”

10 largely forgotten UK sci-fi sitcoms

Remember Kinvig, Clone, Not With A Bang? These are the UK sci-fi sitcoms you’re unlikely to see on comedy best-of lists…

With E4 sci-fi comedy commissions, Tripped and Aliens, and in-development Channel 4 projects, Space Ark and Graham Linehan/Adam Buxton collaboration The Cloud, in the works, a new crop of sci-fi sitcom could be making its way to UK TV.

Making funny sci-fi on a small-screen budget is tough enough without the additional pressure of having to attract viewers more traditionally down-to-earth in their sitcom tastes. Sci-fi sets and effects can be seen as prohibitively expensive by comedy commissioners (which is perhaps why the best UK sci-fi sitcoms of recent years has been on BBC Radio), and the genre’s niche status doesn’t scream mainstream hit. Over the years, one or two stand-outs have managed to straddle the sci-fi and comedy TV worlds, but plenty more have stumbled in the attempt.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Play Edward Snowden In This Controversial Biopic

Hollywood is full of stories about child stars who made it big young, then flamed out and met tragic ends. Inception star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is not one of those cautionary tales. The actor, who got his big break as a fresh-faced kid on television series like Roseanne and Third Rock from the Sun, has made quite a career for himself in years since those shows went off the air. And the latest industry buzz has the actor potentially playing one of the most controversial figures in recent American history: Nsa whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Deadline reports that Oliver Stone is keenly interested in getting Gordon-Levitt to headline his new bipoic about the former CIA system administrator. Snowden became a hot topic in 2013 after divulging the extent of governmental surveillance in the wake of 9/11, eventually forcing him to seek asylum in Russia.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.
