Ashford currently appears in the FX anthology series “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace” in the role of Elizabeth Cote. Her other credits include Fox’s reboot of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” where she played Columbia, and the Showtime

Three Rivers brings Indian projects to Diff
Dubai Film Market is introducing a selection of Indian projects for the first time this year through a partnership with Europe’s Pjlf Three Rivers Residency.

The five projects are being scripted by hot new talents such as Kanu Behl, whose debut feature Titli premiered at Cannes’ Un Certain Regard in 2014, and Raj Rishi More, whose project is being produced by The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra.

The Three Rivers residency provides writer-directors with a month-long distraction-free space to work on their scripts in the Italian countryside, with the help of an expert mentor, before presenting their projects at Diff. Although focusing on Indian projects in its first year, the organisers hope to open the programme to international writer-directors, including those from the Arab world, from next year.

“We feel writers sometimes need a much more concentrated period to hone their ideas and get away from all the distractions of a day job and daily life,” said producer

TV Review: ‘Code Black’

TV Review: ‘Code Black’
Code Black” certainly feels like a misnomer, since it’s hard to think of a medical drama that could possibly look more beige. Named after a term for a very specific type of crisis — a moment when a hospital’s resources are essentially overwhelmed by the number of emergency patients — the CBS series is trying to get maximum promotional mileage out of Marcia Gay Harden’s casting as a hard-driving surgeon, one of the heroic personnel on display. Harden isn’t the only fine actor here, but they’re all toiling in service of hoary cliches, in a pilot that quickly flatlines.

“For the next three years, I’m your mama,” gruff nurse Jesse Sallander (Luis Guzman) tells the new batch of first-year residents, in very “Grey’s Anatomy”-like fashion. Under the supervision of Harden’s residency director Dr. Leanne Rorish, they’re an eclectic but pretty nondescript bunch,
