A Warning for Broadcast TV: When There Are Too Many Shows to Watch, Generic Titles Like ‘Deception’ Just Don’t Cut It

  • Indiewire
ABC just premiered its latest twist on the cop procedural format — a pretty fun show starring Jack Cutmore-Scott as Cameron Black, a stage magician who decides to use his talents to help the FBI solve crimes while also investigating a mystery of his own.

A magician doing illusions to solve crime is a fresh twist on the genre, Cutmore-Scott is a charming lead, the supporting cast is fantastic, and the magic seen in the pilot is really cool. But what’s this show titled? “Deception.”

That’s right, “Deception” — not to be mistaken for the 1946 film starring Bette Davis and Claude Reine, the 2008 film starring Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman, the 2013 NBC series about a lady detective investigating her childhood best friend’s murder, or countless other low-budget films over the years. “Deception” is a one-word title so generic and bland that by the end of this sentence, you’ll

Exclusive: Listen to Waz-jackson’s genre-bending score for YouTube Red’s newest series Youth & Consequences

In honor of the recent premiere of Youtube Red’s newest sitcom, Youth & Consequences, we decided to share with you an exclusive playlist with a few of the show’s tracks by composing duo Waz and Jamie Jackson, known as Waz-jackson.

Youth & Consequences is billed as a “woke” version of Mean Girls. It is described as a series that boldly tackles hot-button issues like feminism, gender identity and the seemingly life-or-death stakes of adolescence in the Digital Age. It follows Farrah Cutney (Anna Akana), the girl everyone wishes they were in school: a master of her domain, queen of “spin” and the resident “fixer” — at the center of a rumor storm that she can no longer control.

Aside from Youth & Consequences, Waz-jackson is currently scoring The CW’s Life Sentence starring Lucy Hale. They also have two documentary films in post-production, Cancer Rebellion produced by Roger Daltrey of The

‘McMafia’ Review: David Strathairn’s Fine but Familiar AMC Miniseries Is the Egg McMuffin of Crime Shows

‘McMafia’ Review: David Strathairn’s Fine but Familiar AMC Miniseries Is the Egg McMuffin of Crime Shows
“McMafia” is a very serious show with a very silly title. While plenty of other series with maligned monickers have let their quality speak for them (“Trophy Wife,” “Cougar Town”), the most interesting thing about AMC’s new drama is the misleading and misguided origins of its title. A stock revenge story with a corporate hook that provides for the finished sheen of “prestige” television (expensive suits, fancy dresses, and lots of pretty people in pretty places), the first six episodes feature a handsome production filled with strong performances (most notably from the lead, James Norton). But there’s no fresh meat in this fine-looking burger… so the title remains the most compelling aspect to talk about.

First, since this is a review, here’s what you need to know about “McMafia” the “Untitled David Strathairn TV Show.” This eight-part limited series focuses on a businessman, Alex Godman (Norton), who

Trailer Watch: Amy Schumer Thinks She’s a Super Model in “I Feel Pretty”

“I Feel Pretty”

Amy Schumer gets an invisible makeover that changes her life in “I Feel Pretty.” The comedy sees her playing Renee, a woman who suffers from low self-esteem. Convinced that her life is adversely affected by her looks, she’s “always wondered what it feels like to be undeniably pretty,” she admits in a new trailer for the pic.

“Women know deep down it’s what’s on the outside that the whole world judges,” Renee says. Her theory is put to the test when an accident at a Soul Cycle class leaves her completely physically transformed — but in her eyes alone. “I look exactly the same but in my mind I am Giselle [Bündchen], I am one of the Jenner-Kardashians,” Schumer explained on “Ellen,” where she premiered the spot. Renee starts living with the confidence of a super model even though she doesn’t look like one.

This Friends Reunion Trailer Might Not Be Real, but It Is in Our Hearts

At this point, a Friends reboot is never going to happen. In the decade since the seminal show ended, most of the cast members have spoken against the idea of a scripted reunion series or movie. Even so, dedicated Friends fans haven't stopped asking for it. In case it's any consolation, one viral YouTube video imagines what a Friends reunion movie might look like, and it's almost too much to handle. Smasher - a movie, TV, and gaming trailer channel - stitched together a fake trailer using clips from the cast's post-Friends projects, like Cougar Town and Episodes. Though the trailer is a little rough around the edges at times, it's also not entirely unbelievable. Monica and Chandler are divorcing, Phoebe is now a doctor, and Joey is still single but winning a Golden Globe! Ok - so maybe it is a little implausible, but just go with it.

Scrubs creator takes comedy series Spaced Out to CBS

Variety is reporting that Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence’s comedy series Spaced Out is now being developed as a multi-camera project at CBS, after failing to move forward as a single camera comedy pilot at NBC.

Lawrence – whose other credits include Spin City, Cougar Town, Rush Hour and the upcoming CW comedy Life Sentence – is set to write the new take on Spaced Out, as well as executive producing with Jeff Ingold.
