Hulu in November: Here’s Everything Coming and Going

  • The Wrap
Fall is upon us, and so is Hulu’s list of every title coming and going from the streaming service in November.

Among the list of arriving titles is a new episode of Hulu’s original monthly anthology series, “Into the Dark.” November’s episode is called “Pilgrim,” and claims to be inspired by true events — in which a woman invites a bunch of Pilgrim re-enactors over for Thanksgiving dinner. But things get spooky when the “actors” refuse to break character.

Other new arrivals include Season 5 of “You’re the Worst,” described as a modern look at love, the complete first seasons of “Dollface,” about a young woman re-entering the world of women, “The Accident,” which begins with a deadly explosion at a construction site, and “Love Island: Australia,” an answer to the U.K. and U.S. versions of the beloved reality dating show.

Catherine Marie Thomas (‘Homecoming’) on designing costumes in collaboration with Julia Roberts [Exclusive Video Interview]

Every “Homecoming” outfit had a specific purpose to designer Catherine Marie Thomas. The Amazon series primarily takes place in an eerie facility for military veterans, where Julia Roberts plays Heidi Bergman, a friendly but stressed counselor who takes a special interest in one of the veterans, Walter Cruz (Stephan James). Thomas wanted to suggest an environment of free will as an illusion with the costuming on Walter and his fellow veterans. “What we wanted to accomplish was this comfortable environment where it seemed like they had a choice of what they wore in a parameter, sort of like a university,” Thomas explains. “You go to a store, you get issued the campus sweatshirt, the shorts, this kind of branding atmosphere.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Thomas above.

Black Filmmakers Make History in 2018, But Female Directors Still Shut Out (Study)

Black Filmmakers Make History in 2018, But Female Directors Still Shut Out (Study)
Black filmmakers made history in 2018. A movie business that has historically been dominated by white men became a little less monochromatic over the last twelve months, as studios apparently became more receptive to public pressure to back projects from a more diverse group of filmmakers.

Fourteen percent of the directors of the top 100 grossing movies last year were black, according to a new report by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative. That’s a 270% increase over 2017 and a 200% increase from 2007 in terms of representation and comes after grassroots campaigns such as #OscarsSoWhite brought public attention to the lack of representation in Hollywood.

“All of the activism and attention surrounding the issue of diversity, inclusion, and belonging has shown that the time has come,” said Dr. Stacy L. Smith, the report’s co-author.”This is the first time we’re reporting a major change in representation behind the camera.”

‘Dumplin’s’ Anne Fletcher On Dolly Parton, Self-Empowerment & Drag Queens [Podcast]

When you sit down and chat with director Anne Fletcher you immediately recognize the energy that fueled her first three box office hits, “Step Up,” “27 Dresses” and “The Proposal.” Her last two films didn’t quite work out, but now she’s back with “Dumplin’,” an independently financed dramedy that Netflix acquired and debuted on the service last weekend.

‘Dumplin” Film Review: Jennifer Aniston and Danielle Macdonald Deserve Trophies for Elevating Sentimental Dramedy

  • The Wrap
If your guilty pleasures expand to include Hallmark-style sentimentality this time of year, you might consider adding “Dumplin'” to your viewing lineup. It has nothing to do with the holiday season, but it’s wrapped as neatly as any gift you might find under a Christmas tree.

Though directed by rom-com vet Anne Fletcher and written by producer Kristin Hahn (“The Departed”), this modest dramedy — which is being released simultaneously in theaters and on Netflix — is a far better fit for the small screen. But a big heart and strong cast go a long way towards elevating its prosaic approach.

Most of the credit goes to the two leads, Jennifer Aniston and Danielle Macdonald, who play a markedly mismatched mother and daughter. Aniston’s strenuously meticulous Rosie was, as she’ll happily remind anyone who asks, 1991’s Miss Teen Blue Bonnet. This might not seem like much to us,

For season three of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Aline Brosh McKenna wanted to “get inside of some of the more extreme aspects” of Rebecca Bunch’s (Rachel Bloom) personality to better understand her psychology. McKenna co-created the CW series with Bloom about a mentally-unbalanced lawyer who leaves a job at a successful New York firm to pursue the love of her life, Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III), in West Covina, CA.

With the series-jolting loss of stars Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle, Suits has to something to equally as exciting to replace them.

They've made their move by engaging Katherine Heigl as the newest lead for Suits Season 8.
