Sarah Michelle Gellar set for TV drama Other People’s Houses

Deadline is reporting that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar is being lined up for a small screen return, team with Ringer creators Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder for Other People’s Houses.

Based on the book by Abbi Waxman, the suburban dramedy is described as a cross between Big Little Lies and Catastrophe, and tells “the story of nine people… living on a bucolic street… in the quiet, affluent neighborhood of Larchmont Village in Los Angeles. Using the lens of social media, our characters navigate their way through emotional ups and downs, as they try to figure out their lives as partners, parents, friends, and neighbors. And in the middle of the block — and the center of the drama — are our two main characters, two mothers Frances Bloom and Anne Porter.”

The potential series reunites Gellar with Ringer creators Charmelo and Snyder, who also executive produced NBC’s Midnight, Texas,

Is Nicole Kidman the (very) early 2020 Best Drama Actress Emmy favorite for ‘Big Little Lies’?

Is Nicole Kidman the (very) early 2020 Best Drama Actress Emmy favorite for ‘Big Little Lies’?
There’s nothing little about Nicole Kidman’s performance in the second season of HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” which concluded its seven-episode run in July. For her turn as Celeste Wright in the first season, she swept the awards circuit, kick-started by her Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actress Emmy Award win in 2017. But things are a bit different this time around, with Kidman having to compete in Best Drama Actress as the show is no longer a limited series, and the Emmys would be the conclusion to a second potential sweep next year.

With her uniformly excellent performance in the first season, Kidman shone a light on the contradictory feelings that are triggered by domestic abuse, which Celeste suffered at the hands of her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). That was especially apparent in therapy session scenes, in which Celeste, a woman who’s closed herself off from reality

Bill Simmons’ The Ringer Ups Mallory Rubin, Sean Fennessy To Top Content Roles

Mallory Rubin and Sean Fennessy, two of the founding editors of Bill Simmons’ sports and culture site The Ringer, are moving up in the ranks.

Rubin has been promoted to editor in chief of The Ringer, effective October 1, as Fennessy hands over editorial reins and becomes Chief Content Officer. Both have been with the Ringer since its launch in 2016.

HBO initially invested in The Ringer and Vox Media struck an advertising and technology deal with Vox Media in 2017. Simmons made his reputation over a 16-year career chapter at ESPN, where he spearheaded Grantland and the 30 for 30 franchise.

The Ringer operates website theringer.com as well as a podcast network with more than 30 shows as well as a social media network. It is active in scripted and unscripted production. While sports is the cornerstone of the site, recaps and live after-shows tied to series like Game of Thrones and Big Little Lies have become a staple.

‘Bombshell’ First Trailer: Kidman, Theron, and Robbie Take On Fox News Scandal
Nicole Kidman. Charlize Theron. Margot Robbie. A cast almost too good to be true. The dream trio made its first appearance in the first teaser trailer for “Bombshell,” a drama about Fox News’ massive sexual harassment scandal caused by late network head and Donald Trump crony Roger Ailes. The three A-listers will play Megyn Kelly (Theron), Gretchen Carlson (Kidman), and the lesser-known Kayla Pospisil (Robbie), all women who accused Ailes of sexual harassment and received multi-million dollar buyouts for their silence.

Here’s the official logline: “‘Bombshell’ is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it.”

‘On Becoming a God in Central Florida’ Review: Kirsten Dunst Lords Over an Excellent Sunshine State Satire

‘On Becoming a God in Central Florida’ Review: Kirsten Dunst Lords Over an Excellent Sunshine State Satire
“On Becoming a God in Central Florida” is such a clever, compelling, and thorough evisceration of American capitalism it’s shocking Elizabeth Warren isn’t listed as an executive producer. Created by Robert Funke and Matt Lutsky, Showtime’s new hourlong black comedy does feature a few well-known progressive producers in EPs George Clooney and Grant Heslov, but the ’90s-set story of lower-middle class Floridians put to ruin by a pyramid scheme isn’t solely a political statement; it chronicles a tragedy in action, as the promise of the American dream is ripped away from those who believe in it — and need it — the most. Like any great satire, you won’t be able to tell if you’re laughing so hard it hurts, or if you’ve just been punched in the gut.

The awesome Kirsten Dunst (also an Ep) is the story here, bringing a captivating vitality and
