‘The Bachelorette’ Recap: Rachel Tells One Man to ‘Get the F— Out’

5 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There was a moment on last season of “The Bachelor” when Rachel Lindsay told Nick Viall “I love sports, but I don’t play games.” On tonight’s “Bachelorette,” Rachel made good on that promise. She committed to that promise so hard that at one point she caused me to physically scream and start clapping. I applauded for so long that I probably missed something important. So apologies if there are some gaps in the timeline, but it’s worth it just knowing that Rachel has changed the game … uhh … journey to find love? … for the better.

But that’s not to say that every moment of this episode was a blast. It happened on last season of “The Bachelor” with Corinne and Taylor, and it’s happening again on this season — “The Bachelorette” has found a way to take the one of the most frustrating people on the planet, and »

Could a Perfect Storm Help Push Elisabeth Moss to Her First Emmy Win?

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If you’re Elisabeth Moss, you’re probably flying high right about now.

The actress’s new series, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” is the talk of the town, scoring for Hulu a hit program that could finally break the glass awards ceiling for the streamer. She’s also fresh from the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival, where not only did the second season of Jane Campion’s limited series “Top of the Lake” screen to critical acclaim, but Ruben Ostlund’s “The Square” walked away with the coveted Palme d’Or. Moss features in both.

The 34-year-old actress already looked like a strong contender to score an Emmy nomination for her work in “Handmaid’s Tale,” but there certainly seems to be a perfect storm building around her that could help push her across the finish line.

The Emmy race for lead actress in a drama could ultimately be Netflix vs. Hulu »

‘Orange is the New Black’ Season 5 Review: A New Star Emerges In the Show’s Darkest Season Yet

14 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: This review contains spoilers for the final episodes of “Orange is the New Black” Season 4, which premiered in 2016. It does not contain spoilers for the new upcoming season.]

It’s official: “Orange is the New Black” is never allowed to call itself a comedy, ever again.

When it comes to awards consideration, the Netflix series about a women’s prison has yo-yoed between the drama and comedy categories since the beginning, and tonally the show has always existed in the realm we usually describe as “dramedy.” But while that has meant “Orange” was capable of offering up great moments of hilarity as well as tear-jerking pathos, it also means that the show’s tone has always been its biggest creative struggle, especially in later years, as it’s taken bigger and bigger swings.

Season 4 was perhaps the most challenging in this respect, as the final two episodes pushed the show into new territory after Poussey (Samira Wiley) died at the hands of a guard. »

‘Twin Peaks’: Matthew Lillard on His Breakout Role and Joining David Lynch’s Dysfunctional Family

28 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last week’s premiere of “Twin Peaks” brought with it no shortage of surprises, but here’s probably the most unpredictable one we witnessed: a captivating performance by Matthew Lillard as William Hastings, a high school principal accused of murder, whose wife is tied up in the supernatural mystery surrounding Agent Dale Cooper’s (Kyle MacLachlan) evil doppleganger.

Lillard’s career began in the early ’90s with roles in “Serial Mom” and “Hackers,” and his reputation is definitely rooted in some variation of comedy, from horror comedies like “Scream” to the live-action “Scooby-Doo” films (and subsequent animated projects, for which Lillard still provides the voice of Shaggy).

Twin Peaks,” while never lacking in funny moments, marks a bit of a departure for the character actor. That might be why, at the premiere last Friday, »

Olivier Courson Appointed Culture, Communication, Digital Senior Advisor to Emmanuel Macron’s Government

49 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Olivier Courson, the former chairman-ceo of Studiocanal, has been appointed as a senior advisor on culture, communications and digital regulation, reporting to new French prime minister Edouard Philippe.

In his new position, Courson will advise and if necessary arbitrate – in the case of discrepencies between ministries – on a ample remit of issues crucial to the future of film and TV in France. He reports to Philippe, responsible for implementing in a mid-term the long-term vision for France and France’s place in the world set out by Emmanuel Macron who won France’s presidential elections on May 7.

That will give Courson a say in some of the huge issues which Macron’s government is expected to tackle, led by France’s expansion in the digital domain, a priority for Macron.

In early declarations as France’s new culture minister, Françoise Nyssen, has confirmed that she will lead the debate on Netflix and other digital platforms challenge to »

Our Six Favorite Fictional Athletes from Television Shows

1 hour ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Sometimes the most personable athletes are those that don’t exist in real life. They make us laugh, cry, and feel a very real sense that they have a life outside their sport. Or sometimes they’re just good entertainment and provide a nice distraction from our day. In any case, athletes from TV are often seen as much more enjoyable than athletes in real life mostly because we know they’re fictional and don’t care. This makes them far easier to enjoy and less apt to be placed on a pedestal that they may or may not have earned. Here are six

Will the New Andy Cohen Hosted Love Connection Succeed?

Love Connection was one of the most influential American game shows. Like its name suggests, it was focused on helping singles connect with a compatible partner by going on dates with the contestants. In total, the game show ran from 2,120 shows, having started up in 1983 and continued running until 1994. As a result, it is no wonder that TV executives are interested in reviving Love Connection in 2017 in spite of a failure in 1998 and 1999 as well as a second failure in 2015 to do the same.

Why Chicago Justice Didn’t Succeed In Dick Wolf’s Chicago Franchise

Chicago is going to be lacking some legal aid in the fall. Last week, Dick Wolf’s Chicago franchise got the disappointing news that NBC decided not to move forward with a second season of Chicago Justice. Beginning with the premiere of Chicago Fire five years ago, the Chicago franchise seemed to show no signs of slowing down. Every year thereafter a new show has added to the family. The first two spinoffs were successful, so there was great hope that the third would do the same. Unfortunately, it was not to be. There are many unanswered questions in the wake

Towards the end of every season of Gotham, the story threads begin to converge and all of the fan favorite characters begin to team up in interesting ways. It’s actually extremely comforting to know that Season 3 is no different.
