“We have only recently learned of these allegations through an inquiry from a reporter,” said a spokesman for 20th Century Fox TV. “We are not aware of any claims made concerning his conduct on ‘The Resident.’ We take these matters seriously and are reviewing this.”
Lutsky served as a medical consultant on season two of “Code Black,” which is produced by ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios. Three sources close to the production told Variety that in 2016 Lutsky had already been informed that his contract would not be picked up for the following season when two female employees told producers that they had been subjected to continuous verbal sexual harassment by Lutsky over a
Mark Burnett, MGM TV and Digital and Paramount TV are reviving the boxing competition series that ran on NBC from 2005 to 2009. The show revolves around an elimination-style competition among 16 boxers as they train and fight in the hopes of winning a six-figure purse and the title of “The Contender.” Several pugilists from the earlier incarnation went on to compete in world championships, including Sergio Mora, who took the Wbc Super Welterweight Championship title in 2008.
Eric Van Wagenen is executive producer and showrunner alongside Burnett, who is now president of MGM Television and Digital. Van Wagenen worked on the original series with Burnett. Sylvester Stallone was also on board the NBC version but there’s no word if he’s back again this time.
“Boxing belongs on premium pay television and there is no better home for ‘The Contender’ than Epix.” said Burnett

Starring Iwan Rheon, Serinda Swan and Ken Leung, Inhumans got off to a rocky start. Spectacularly launched in IMAX, the Marvel TV show failed to pull in the critical or commercial acclaim that shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Daredevil did. Even the honor of being first TV series to air in IMAX couldn’t save Inhumans from a universally panned debut season, meaning that the writing was already on the wall for the show, however, ABC may have just sealed its fate.
Friedman was an executive producer on the project and wrote the pilot, which was shot last year. “Snowpiercer” was ordered to series by TNT earlier this month. A source close to the network cited creative differences as the reason.
The series, based on the 2014 Bong Joon Ho film, takes place seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland and centers on a small band of people who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. Jennifer Connelly stars as Melanie Cavill, an important first-class passenger and leader who is fascinated by the less fortunate riders on the train. The “Snowpiercer” cast also includes Daveed Diggs, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Benjamin Haigh, Sasha Frolova, Katie McGuinness, Alison Wright, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand and Lena Hall.

But the night wasn’t completely by the books. Here’s a look at some of the award show’s biggest curveballs:
Surprise: “This Is Us” (NBC)
Admittedly, this race was a tough one to call: Good arguments could have been made for any of the nominees. But “Stranger Things” was a surprise win last year, and the SAG did it again, crowning the NBC tearjerker. The last time a broadcast series took home the trophy was in 2006 for ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Snub: “Stranger Things” (Netflix)
Speaking of “Stranger Things,” the Netflix series went 0-for-4 tonight. Nothing for David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, the stunt team, or the cast — depriving viewers of yet another rousing speech from Harbour and Winona Ryder’s facial
Co-stars Laura Dern and Reese Witherspoon were two of the other finalists in the Best Actress in a Miniseries category. The idea that the actresses from the HBO hit would cancel out votes for each other was mitigated by the fact that the only other series nominated in this category had a pair of actresses itself: Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon each picked up nods for “Feud: Bette and Joan.”
“It’s only the beginning,” Kidman said of the support stories about older
Joined by the entire cast, Milo Ventimiglia thanked the popular NBC show’s cast and crew, giving a special shout-out to helpers on set and creator Dan Fogelman.
“We are just a small collection of a lot of very talented and very hardworking people who work on this show,” said Ventimiglia, who plays patriarch Jack Pearson on the tearjerker series. “Without Dan and our talented writers, we would not have words to say.”
“The people who
According to Veep‘s Matt Walsh, the Emmy-winning comedy’s seventh and final season is expected to begin production in August, once star Julia Louis-Dreyfus has had enough time to recuperate after undergoing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. As such, the series’ swan song is not expected to premiere before 2019.
“We’ll start filming in August and it will air in 2019,” Walsh told EW.com. “We’ve seen [Julia], she’s done some table reads [and] she’s doing well.”
At the time, it seemed like Freeman was either flirting with someone in the crowd, or chastising an audience member for being distracting as he began his acceptance speech as this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award honoree. (Sites like TMZ assumed it was the latter.) Watch the moment in the clip below.
But backstage, Freeman revealed to IndieWire that he actually was thrown by seeing a familiar face: Lily Tomlin. “She’s a wonder in herself and I’ve always loved her. I see her and I say hello!”

When HBO officially announced last month that it was moving forward with a second season of Big Little Lies, the cabler noted that “most” of the main characters are expected to accompany Nicole Kidman’s Celeste and Reese Witherspoon’s Madeline back to Monterey. Apparently even the dead ones.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Alexander Skarsgard — whose abusive alter ego, Perry, was seemingly killed off in the HBO dramedy’s Season 1 climax — is expected to return in some capacity.
“The three most important people in my life are my wife and my two daughters, I would love for my two daughters to enter a world of parity of pay,” he told PeopleTV’s Lola Ogunnaike and People Now’s Jeremy Parsons at The People, Entertainment Weekly & TNT Official SAG Awards Red Carpet Live Show Sunday. “It seems crazy in today’s age that we should be fighting for that.

The consumer-products giant behind Quaker Oats, Tropicana orange juice and Diet Pepsi, among other supermarket favorites, is testing a tricky stratagem. In an event that typically demands strong, simple ad messages for the biggest (and often most inebriated) TV audience of the year, PepsiCo will advertise two different products within the confines of a single 60-second commercial: a new spicy iteration of Doritos and a new lemon-lime variant of Mountain Dew.
“You do run the risk of one brand overshadowing the other, and not getting that new product message out,” acknowledged Greg Lyons, chief marketing officer of PepsiCo’s North America Beverages division, in an interview. NBC will broadcast Super Bowl Li from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on February 4.
In this case, PepsiCo executives believe they have the right formula to offset the danger
Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi–the stars, writers, and directors of the 2014 film–will serve as executive producers, with Clement serving as writer and Waititi serving as director. Scott Rudin, Paul Simms, Garrett Basch, and Eli Bush will also executive produce. FX Productions will produce.
Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, and Harvey Guillen are set to star in the half-hour series. The exact details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but Waititi previously said the show would be set in the United States rather than New Zealand, per Fandango. The original film is a mockumentary about a group of vampires named Viago, Vladislav, Deacon, and Petyr living in the city of Wellington.
This is not the only “What We Do in the Shadows”-associated project in the works. Clement and Waititi
