‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Season 3 Trailer: Midge Is Going to Be a Legend

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Season 3 Trailer: Midge Is Going to Be a Legend
Midge Maisel is “grabbing her moment and having a marvelous time.” At least, that’s what the Season 3 trailer promises, thanks to the quite perfect song choice played throughout: Amy Sherman-Palladino favorite Sutton Foster’s (“Bunheads”) recording of “Perfectly Marvelous” from “Cabaret.”

“This is the first of a million tours,” Midge tells Susie in the opening moments of the new trailer. That’s right: As expected, Midge took Shy Baldwin up on his offer to tour with him at the end of Season 2, and now she and her manager are living their dreams big time. But as Susie reminds Midge, “This is the big leagues, kid. Gotta start acting like professionals.”

From the looks of it, that professionalism leads to things like Las Vegas marquees with “Mrs. Maisel” on them, some more marital strain between Midge and Joel, and guest appearances from Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”) and another Sherman-Palladino alum,

‘Superstore’ Pays Tribute To The Late Linda Porter With End Card
Linda Porter was remembered tonight by the producers of NBC’s Superstore with an end card reading “In Loving Memory” at the show’s conclusion.

Porter died Sept. 25 at age 86 after a long battle with cancer. The character actress appeared in dozens of TV series and feature films, but was perhaps best known for her role as Myrtle in Superstore.

Porter most recently was seen in her recurring role as Cloud 9 employee Myrtle Vartanian in the May 16 Season 4 finale of Superstore. The fan favorite had recently been rehired as new manager Amy’s (America Ferrera) assistant after being laid off in Season 3, and then brought back as a customer-greeting hologram.

Since Season 1, Porter appeared in 35 episodes of the NBC comedy series, which is now in its fifth season. She had not filmed any Season 5 episodes before her death.

Julia Goldani Telles to Star in 3rd Season of Starz Anthology Drama ‘The Girlfriend Experience’
Former “The Affair” star Julia Goldani Telles will star in the third season of Starz’s anthology drama “The Girlfriend Experience.”

Telles will play Iris, a young neuroscientist in the London tech scene who quickly learns that her client sessions as a high-end escort provide her with an edge in the tech world, and vice versa…until, that is, she begins to question whether her actions are driven by free will, or something else altogether.

Telles appeared as Whitney on Showtime’s “The Affair” and starred in Amy Sherman Palladino’s “Bunheads” that aired on ABC Family (which is now Freeform).

TV’s Most Memorable Dance Sequences, According to Critics

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: What’s your favorite dance sequence on TV ever?

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), Rolling Stone

Look, there are surely more emotionally moving options than the one I’ve chosen. Mac’s interpretive dance about his sexuality from the last “It’s Always Sunny” finale was among the most remarkable and unexpected moments of recent TV. The year before, “Better Things” wonderfully concluded its season with Sam, her mom, and two of her daughters recreating the video from Christine and the Queens’ “Tilted” as a birthday present for Max. Anyone who votes for Sasha’s “Istanbul/Constantinople” dance from “Bunheads” here is absolutely right to do so — a great piece of choreography that was also revelatory about a character designed to be tough to love. There’s Pete and Trudy

Emmy spotlight: Hilary Duff’s journey from Disney girl on ‘Lizzie Maguire’ to Manhattan career gal in TV Land’s ‘Younger’

Emmy spotlight: Hilary Duff’s journey from Disney girl on ‘Lizzie Maguire’ to Manhattan career gal in TV Land’s ‘Younger’
Sutton Foster is the ostensible lead of “Younger” as a secret 40-something book editor and divorced mom who continues to pass herself off as a hip millennial — even as the Big Apple-based sitcom created by “Sex and the City’s” Darren Star just kicked off its sixth season this week. But her winsome yet duplicitous charade is starting to get old, especially when more and more of her colleagues are already in on her ruse.

Meanwhile, Hilary Duff as her editing partner Kelsey Peters – who is in the know about Liza’s real age and situation — is an actual millennial and acts as a supportive mentor to her. Her randy sexual escapades with rival editor Zane (Charles Michael Davis) and author client Jake Devereux (Jason Ralph) on last year’s fifth season sometimes recall the adventurous bedroom proclivities of Kim Cattrall’s PR pro Samantha Jones.

Emmy spotlight: ‘Younger’ still has a bounce in its step as TV Land’s lone original series starts its 6th season

Emmy spotlight: ‘Younger’ still has a bounce in its step as TV Land’s lone original series starts its 6th season
It used to be that sitcoms in the ‘60s had all sorts of nutty “what-if” premises that required a chasm-sized suspension of disbelief from viewers. What if an astronaut kept an attractive female genie in a lamp (“I Dream of Jeannie”)? What if a witch tried to pass herself off as an average suburban housewife (“Bewitched”)? What if you mother was car (“My Mother the Car”)?

“Younger,” the brainchild of Darren Star that is based on a 2005 novel by Pamela Redmond Satran, is by no means that outlandish. The premise only slightly strains credibility as Liza Miller, a 40-year-old divorcee and mother of a teen daughter, who is desperately struggling to find a job at a book publishing house after her ex gambled away their savings and house.

Alas, most recruiters think this oldster isn’t hip enough to deal with the latest trends in social media and wouldn’t

Sutton Foster To Join Hugh Jackman in Broadway’s ‘The Music Man’

Sutton Foster To Join Hugh Jackman in Broadway’s ‘The Music Man’
Sutton Foster, star of TV’s Younger and a two-time Tony Award winner, will co-star with Hugh Jackman in next year’s Broadway revival of The Music Man, Jackman tweeted this morning.

Jackman tweeted a photo of himself (see it above) dancing with Foster with the simple message, “For our next dance…@sfosternyc is #Marian @MusicManBway.” Producer Scott Rudin confirmed the casting.

Foster will play Marian Paroo, or, as one of the show’s songs puts it, “Marian the Librarian.” The role was played by Barbara Cook in the 1957 original production, and by Shirley Jones in the Shirley Jones in the 1962 film version.

See Jackman’s tweet below.

The 2020 revival of the Meredith Wilson musical was announced two weeks ago. Jerry Zaks will direct, with Warren Carlyle choreographing. Preview performances are set to being Wednesday, September 9, 2020 with an official opening on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at a Shubert theatre to be announced.

Listen: Jeanine Mason on Being a Leading Latina in CW’s ‘Roswell, New Mexico’

  • Variety
Welcome to “TV Take,” Variety’s television podcast. In this week’s episode, Variety TV critic Caroline Framke talks with Jeanine Mason, star of the CW’s new drama “Roswell, New Mexico.”

The series is the second adaptation of the “Roswell High” book series by Melinda Metz. The first series premiered in 1999 and starred Shiri Appleby as the main character, Liz Parker. However, the CW version of the show reverts the character back to being the Latina Liz Ortecho, as in the novels, a significant choice according to Mason.

“It never struck me as anything other than a great idea to reboot this property, primarily because she’s Liz Ortecho, and that is honoring the book series and there was so much of the story left to explore,” Mason says. “A lot of it lies in the fact that the lead woman is Latina, and she’s ignited, she’s on fire,

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Was Perfect — So ‘Change Everything’ Was the Plan for Season 2
The first season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is one of the streaming era’s most perfect stretches of television — the kind of once-in-a-generation Hale-Bopp of a comedy that can only happen when a singular talent is given a blank check to make her dream project a reality, and then the stars align so that it somehow turns out just right. And so — fresh off Emmy and Golden Globe wins for Best Series — creator Amy Sherman-Palladino knew exactly what she had to do to keep the magic alive for Season 2: Change everything.

Sitting next to her husband and creative partner Daniel Palladino in a quiet Manhattan hotel suite that felt worlds removed from the manic zeal of their work, Sherman-Palladino suggested that you might have to kill a golden goose if you want to make something more valuable out of its feathers. “The thing that interests us the most,

'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Is A Marvel At The Emmys And Beyond

How do you follow up something as beloved as The Girlmore Girls? If you're that series' creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, you create a show called The Return of Jezebel James (which lasted three episodes in March 2008), another called Bunheads (a single season in 2012), write a four-episode reunion series called Gilmore Girls: Year in the Life in 2016, and then, the following year, create something called The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel — destined to become the belle of the Emmys. Which, earlier the year, might have been hard to imagine. The title doesn't exactly suck you in upon first hearing, does it? And it isn't necessarily enhanced by its premise: a comedy-drama set in 1958 New York, following a Jewish housewife, who, after her marriage takes a hit, discovers that she has an ability for stand-up comedy that can be honed and possibly lead to great things.

Get to Know the Beloved TV Writer Who Just Won Her First Emmy
The writing and directing awards can be slow moments at any award show, since viewers are typically a lot less familiar with the behind-the-scene talent than with those on screen. At Monday night's Emmy Awards, however, one of the highlights early in the show was the back-to-back wins by Amy Sherman-Palladino. Rocking a deeply awesome top hat and her signature quips, Sherman-Palladino almost stole the show. If you aren't familiar with her yet, here's a primer to get you better acquainted.

Sherman-Palladino started her career in the writers' room of the original Roseanne in the early 1990s. After leaving the show, she had the chance to create her first TV series, the Fox sitcom Love and Marriage. Unfortunately, the show was poorly received and only lasted for two episodes in 1996, but it did later lend one of its character's names (April Nardini) to a character on Sherman-Palladino's biggest hit: Gilmore Girls.

Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy Winner Alex Borstein: Breathless, and Bra-less

Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy Winner Alex Borstein: Breathless, and Bra-less
Upon hearing her name announced as winner of the comedy supporting actress statuette, Alex Borstein, 47, shrugged off her silvery silk wrap and deliberately jiggled her breasts at the camera with all the insolent moxie of her on-screen character, Susie Myerson, a brassy talent booker for a ‘50s Greenwich Village coffeehouse.

“I went without the bra!” she informed the audience when she hit the stage to take the first award of the evening for The Marvelous Mrs. Maizel. No, really?

Borstein’s next comment was a bit of non sequitur, and went out to the women in the audience: “When you use a public restroom, sit. If you sit, we can all sit. Stop peeing on the seat.”

After that, the performer offered more conventional remarks, thanking show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino (“I love you and I hate you”), her father (“The only man who has truly loved me and taken care
