‘Your Honor’ Tops 2017’s Series Mania

16 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 »

Performer of the Week: Susan Sarandon

22 April 2017 6:35 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Susan Sarandon

The Show | Feud: Bette and Joan

The Episode | “Abandoned” (April 16, 2017)

The Performance | Of the two lead performances in FX’s juicy Hollywood exposé, Sarandon has the far less flashy role to play. Legendary actress Bette Davis is a tough nut to crack, emotionally, with a thick shell of cynicism and sarcasm protecting her wounded heart. But in this week’s penultimate episode, “Abandoned,” Sarandon finally poked a few holes in that shell and let Davis’ true feelings come pouring out.

All season long, Davis has been warring with Jessica Lange’s Joan Crawford, with the two »

Andrea Martin on NBC’s ‘Great News’ and the Secrets to Her Long Career

20 April 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At age 70, Andrea Martin is working as hard as ever, with roles across stage and screen. This year, she’s been spotted in Hulu’s “Difficult People,” NBC’s “Hairspray Live,” and CBS’ “The Good Fight” — and now she’s taking on the role of an overbearing mother, Carol, in NBC’s new sitcom “Great News.” “Everything is upside down,” says Martin, “the weather, the news. It’s great to be in the world of comedy. You feel like you’re doing something good.”

What made you sign for the role in “Great News”?

I found [showrunner] Tracey [Wigfield] to be disarming and enchanting. And when she talked about her mom, who the show is about, I found it to be endearing. And then I read the script. There was a lot of authenticity, a lot of heart, and big jokes.

Do you have anything in common with Carol?

I certainly understand the doting parent. I »

The 1 Thing That Helped Sarah Steele Through ‘The Good Fight’ and ‘The Humans’

19 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Sarah Steele of “The Humans” and “The Good Fight” fame bids adieu to the teen roles that were once her calling card with her turn in “Speech & Debate,” the feature film adaptation of Stephen Karam’s hit 2007 Off-Broadway show in which she also starred. She swung by Backstage’s office April 10 for a candid chat on growing up, managing her time, and working with Emmy winner Christine Baranski. She’s now committed to playing her age.“Really, 2016 was the first year that I played my own age in a play [‘The Humans’] and I started playing my own age in ‘The Good Fight,’ which feels very good. It’s time. I don’t think I could go back at this point. My good friend [and theater director] Anne Kauffman told me when we were doing ‘Slowgirl’—which is another play where I played a teenager—‘You know what? There’s going to be a day when you say, »

The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 10 Review: Chaos

16 April 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Everyone knew.

Everyone was guilty.

On The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 10 we found out who was responsible for the ponzi scheme and someone was finally arrested.

The finale focused primarily on Maia.

Her attempt to assert herself at work; her growing friendship with Lucca; and her reaction to finding out her dad was guilty.

By the way, spoiler alert! Henry admitted he was responsible for the ponzi scheme. Actually, he said everyone was.

Henry: I'm guilty. I did it.

Maia: No, Jax did.

Henry: Yes, and I did it too and your mom and everyone. Everyone knew. We paid off the SEC. We paid off anyone who got suspicious.

Permalink: Yes, and I did it too and your mom and everyone. Everyone knew. We paid off the SEC. We paid... Added: April 16, 2017

He said everyone knew, but that doesn't mean the investors knew, right? I can't imagine Diane knew.

Exclusive: 'The Good Fight' Bosses Break Down Finale Cliffhanger and Season 2 Plans

16 April 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Sunday’s finale of The Good Fight.

What’s next for The Good Fight?

CBS All Access’ first scripted series wrapped its first season on Sunday with a jam-packed finale that left several looming questions unanswered. After dutifully siding with her troubled family all season long, at the end of the finale, the feds arrived at Maia Rindell’s (Rose Leslie) doorstep to arrest her.

The twist came after her embattled father, Henry Rindell (Paul Guilfoyle), chose not to take a plea deal that would have cleared Maia and put him in jail -- instead, becoming a fugitive on the run. What does this mean for Maia?

The Good Fight creators Robert and Michelle King jumped on the phone with Et to break down the biggest finale moments and what they’re planning for season two.

‘Fate of the Furious’ Torches Global Box Office Records With $532.5 Million Opening

16 April 2017 8:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s “The Fate of the Furious” smashed global box office records, earning an estimated $532.5 million worldwide to set a new high-water mark for an opening weekend.

The long-running series, now in its eighth installment, got a big boost from foreign crowds. The action thriller earned $432.3 million internationally after bowing in 63 foreign markets. That helped offset declining domestic results. “The Fate of the Furious” opened to $100.2 million in North America, a sharp drop from “Furious 7’s” $147.2 million kick-off.

It’s a sign that a franchise built around muscle cars and odes to the importance of family is growing more global in scope. If it wants to continue to expand its audience as it inevitably ticks through future sequels it will need to keep building a fan base in places like China.  To that end, the Middle Kingdom turbocharged results. “The Fate of the Furious” racked up a massive $190 million in the Asian country, »

‘The Good Fight’ Finale: Robert & Michelle King Talk Law, Disorder and Plans for Season 2 (Spoilers)

16 April 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“There’s a whole lot of people who want to see this country fail, Diane,” Adrian Boseman tells Diane Lockhart in the season finale of “The Good Fight.”

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watch the season finale of “The Good Fight,” titled “Chaos.”

The spinoff of “The Good Wife” concludes its first season with a strong episode, “Chaos,” that does a good job of capturing the unsettled, post-election moment. Protesters are screaming in the streets, hackers are running amok, fake news is pervasive, Internet trolls are malicious and government is overtaxed at best and corrupt at worst.

“It feels like something’s come detached — like a piece of machinery that doesn’t sound right,” Boseman says.

In this environment, it’s a gift to have “Good Fight” to pick up the mantle of its predecessor and offer an entertaining and thought-provoking weekly look at defense lawyers who are basically trying to do the right »

The Good Fight Bosses Tease Season 2 Musicals, Cliffhangers and the Power of the Law

16 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Good Fight ended with "Chaos." The season one finale saw Maia (Rose Leslie) step up in court for Lucca (Cush Jumbo), Diane (Christine Baranski) align herself with alt-right (just briefly) and everybody depend on the law as the saving grace. The final moments featured Maia getting arrested after her father (Paul Guilfoyle) didn't turn himself in and fled. "I would say thematically the final episode tries to tie together things we've seen throughout the season: You don't know who's ever telling the truth, you may not know what the truth is and yet even amidst that kind of chaos our core characters are supporting each other and believing in the law to get one through it," co-creator »

'The Good Fight' Creators on Finale Twist and How Trump Will Influence Season 2

16 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday's season finale of The Good Fight, "Chaos."]

The Good Fight began with Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie) officially becoming a lawyer, and the season ended with the potential end of her legal career — and her life as a free woman.

In the final moments of the first-season finale of the CBS All Access original scripted drama, Maia was arrested after her father Henry (Paul Guilfoyle) fled town rather than take a 35-year plea deal that would have also given Maia immunity.

Not only was Maia then arrested for her parents' Ponzi scheme that »

The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey

11 April 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What does it take to make a good prequel TV series? (And feel free to include an example of a show that got it right or wrong.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

A prequel TV series is the most successful when it uses familiar touchstones but creates its own world. “Hannibal” is probably the best example of this, where there were characters we recognized but the setting, experience, and modern time period were completely Bryan Fuller’s (wonderfully so). “Bates Motel” has been another positive example, especially as it nears its end. The time period is again modernized, but it keeps a surreal and retro feel. And »

The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 9 Review: Self Condemned

9 April 2017 8:55 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Things are getting weirder.

On The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 9, Maia met with the FBI about the ponzi scheme, and Diane and Adrian took on another police brutality case.

I'll start with Maia because her storyline carries significant consequences.

But first, how delightful was it to see Jane Lynch? I love everything she does, and this role was no different.

Here, she played FBI agent, Madeline Starkey, who's trying to help Maia recall memories from her teenage years that may or may not shed light on the ponzi scheme. Agent Starkey wanted to know what Maia knew and when.

It's hard to tell whether she's on Maia's side, against her, or just trying to find the truth. I'm leaning toward the latter, though.

But Maia was just a teenager. How much does any teenager know about what their parents are doing? Especially if the parents are running a multi-million dollar company. »
