Popular, Nip/Tuck, Glee, American Horror Story, The New Normal, Scream Queens, American Crime Story, Feud—just when you might get a sense of a common thread linking these shows, and just when you suspect he might be ready to lay back and enjoy his success, another show comes along to upset the math. And yet somehow, still, they are all inescapably Ryan Murphy shows. Through them all, an auteur streak that… »

10 hours ago

We all know from his well-applauded appearance at UTA's pre-Oscar rally in February and the fact that he is a Democrat aiming to be California's next Governor that Gavin Newsom is no fan of Donald Trump. However, today the current Lt.

Watch it above. The clip is highlighted — if that’s the word — by a visit from the Ghost of Presidents Past… »

26 May 2017 1:59 PM, PDT

Back for its fifth season on May 30, House of Cards has re-discovered its swagger in a new political era that makes the ruthless Frank and Claire Underwood look pretty great, reasonable and ever appealing as the Netflix series goes for the full soap opera, as I say in my video review above. No spoilers, but while the ever watchable Kevin Spacey is still going for the full Lbj, Bill Clinton and Nino Brown cocktail and Robin Wright never lets you look away, the now Frank… »

26 May 2017 11:29 AM, PDT

Nicole Kidman has been a household name for nearly 30 years now, but her star never seems to wane. Rocketing to fame in the '80s, she survived the spotlight of a high-profile celebrity marriage to Tom Cruise and emerged triumphant from trial by tabloid. While her peers, and some of her predecessors, chased box-office success in romcoms and franchises, Kidman went for the interesting role, starting in 1995 with Gus Van Sant's mordant black comedy To Die For. Since then… »

They actually shot the pilot without any commitment and then went out to find distribution, or in this case, TBS, which sparked to what the pair put together. At last month’s all day Deadline event, The Contenders… »
