‘Your Honor’ Tops 2017’s Series Mania

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

Already snapped up for a U.S. remake deal, Israeli series “Your Honor,” created by Shlomo Mashiach and Ron Ninio, took the top Grand Jury Prize on Saturday night in Paris at the 8th Series Mania, whose vibrance

was a telling reminder of the robust good health enjoyed by scripted show production at large.

“This is truly a new golden age of television and it was one of the highlights of my life to celebrate it by being on the jury for Series Mania, said jury president Damon Lindelof, show runner of “The Leftovers” and “Lost.”

Few who attended Series Mania could not have been struck by the bullishness of its industry events. FremantleMedia, eOne, Zdf and Federation Entertainment all announcing new productions or desired expansive moves and Co-Production Forum attendance up about 110% to just over 900 delegates as the market for foreign – and often foreign-language – TV dramas, though usually still niche in the latter case, continues »

‘Doctor Who’: The Next Doctor Rumored to Be ‘Chewing Gum’s’ Black Female Star — Report

21 April 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every time the star of “Doctor Who” has announced they’re stepping down, speculation regenerates about his possible replacement. Ah, but what if this time, instead of a white male Doctor, the BBC finally listened to fans who’ve been seeking some diversity for the role?

According to a Nerdist, a source close to production insists that Michaela Coel will replace Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor, which would make her the first female and first black actor to play the role. This source is not an official BBC spokesperson though, and the statement the BBC released to Nerdist didn’t confirm anything: “No casting decisions have been made yet for ‘Doctor Who’ Season 11.”

Rise of the Machines: First Mass Produced Flying Car goes on Sale

As children, flying cars were just a dream.   We pictured them in our minds, drew them on paper, and movies portrayed them on the screen.  While I think many predicted flying cars would become a reality, the year 2017 might not have been the predicted year.  And while we’re not quite at the Fifth Element movie level of flying vehicles, Aeromobile is showing us a first look at the future. The AeroMobile flying car unveiled its first version for pre-sale in Monaco over the weekend.  By unfolding the wings, you can go from road to air and all you need

Amazon’s “Transparent” hit the Emmy trail once again with a For Your Consideration event Saturday evening, featuring a two-episode screening and Q&A with the cast and creative team. The panel was moderated by a “surprise guest,” singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette.

Held at the Hollywood Athletic Club in Los Angeles, “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway was joined by stars Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker, Kathryn Hahn, Alexandra Billings and Trace Lysette to discuss the series’ third season.

Tambor, whose portrayal of Maura Pfefferman has already garnered him two lead actor Emmys, said he is “grateful” for the time he has spent with the role. “I think it’s made me a more responsible actor and person, and also made a better husband, citizen and dad,” he said.

Young and the Restless fans have a question. They know that Victor hired Chloe to take care of Adam and frame him for a crime he did not commit. He claims he had no idea that Chloe would kill him, and he did not ask her to. Do we believe him?

To be quite honest, we think that he

Armie Hammer’s Downfall is the Name Armie Hammer Itself

I’m pretty sure that after Armie Hammer’s portrayal of the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network, people assumed he was going to be a star.  I certainly did.  And I think that even Hollywood wanted it to happen.    The guy’s just too charming and handsome looking a guy not to make it right?  All he needed was a little acting ability and we should have easily had ourselves another leading man.  But that’s not the way things have turned out for Armie Hammer.   His role in The Lone Ranger was his chance and I’m not saying it’s his fault, but

The Bold and the Beautiful is always interesting when it comes to the number of storylines that people have to deal with. One of the most interesting right now has everything to do with Eric.

Former Fox News Anchor Alisyn Camerota: ‘Roger Ailes Did Sexually Harass Me’

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

Another ex-Fox News anchor is going public with allegations of sexual harassment against former CEO Roger Ailes.

Alisyn Camerota, who worked with Fox News as a reporter and weekend anchor for more than a decade, told CNN’s Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” that she was targeted by Ailes, who resigned under pressure last July.

“Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,” she said.

Roger Ailes was — could be charming,” she said. “He could be quite charismatic. He could be uproariously funny. He could also be a bit of a bully, and mean. And he also was often kind of grossly inappropriate with things that he would say, and I think that many of us experienced that. He would talk about body parts. He would say ‘Give me a spin.’ He would want to be greeted with a hug.”

Camerota recalled an instance in which she told Ailes that she wanted more responsibility. Ailes »
