Modern Family Killing Off 'Significant' Character in Season 10 — Any Guesses?
Roseanne Conner isn’t the only character on the proverbial chopping block this season. According to Modern Family co-creator Christopher Lloyd, a “significant character” on his ABC comedy will not live to see the end of its upcoming 10th season (premiering Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c).

The Furniture: Matte Paintings at the End of an Era

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Over the course of the past year, I’ve done an informal retrospective series on the Best Production Design nominees of 1967. It isn’t an especially “New Hollywood” lineup, despite being the year of “Pictures at a Revolution.” Four of the nominees are lush period pieces, three of them lengthy musicals. They often feel like extravagantly-designed chaos, whirlwinds of sets and props that spin out of control. This is true of both the hilarious brawls of The Taming of the Shrew and the dated, stereotype-laden adventures of Thoroughly Modern Millie. Camelot, the winner, manages to split the difference between Old Hollywood excess and New Hollywood sexuality.

The final two films, both Best Picture nominees, are a bit less of a thrill. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and Doctor Dolittle are,

Howards End Trailer: Hayley Atwell Unearths a Secret in Starz Miniseries — Plus: Find Out When It'll Premiere
Even though Agent Carter’s no longer on the case, Hayley Atwell is still getting to the bottom of things.

Take the newly released trailer for Starz’s adaptation of Howards End, E.M. Forster’s 1910 novel about three families in turn-of-the-century England. Marvel’s Agent Carter alum Atwell plays Margaret Schlegel, an intelligent and independent sort who lives with her sister Helen (played by The Catch‘s Philippa Coulthard) and brother Tibby (Black Mirror‘s Alex Lawther) and who — among other intrigues — becomes involved in drama surrounding the widowed Henry Wilcox (Ripper Street‘s Matthew Macfadyen).
