Comic-Con: Seth Meyers Talks Emmy Hosting & ‘The Awesomes’ Season 2

By | Saturday July 26, 2014 @ 2:55pm PDT

Comic-Con: Seth Meyers Talks Emmy Hosting & ‘The Awesomes’ Season 2The late-night talk show host’s pet side project won’t make a cameo on the upcoming Primetime Emmys telecast that he’s hosting, but Seth Meyers mentioned during The Awesomes panel at Comic-Con that his team is writing “filmed segments featuring many of this year’s nominees.”

Season 2 of his animated superhero Hulu series is upping its profile with the addition of his Saturday Night Live pals Amy Poehler, Maya Rud0lph and Will Forte voicing new characters. While Season 1 focused on a ragtag misfit superhero team (inspired largely by DC’s Justice League), in Season 2 we find The Awesomes getting more respect. Meyers’ lead Image (1) sethmeyers__140425013105.jpg for post 719698toon hero Prock falls in love with a fierce lawyer, Jaclyn Stone (Poehler), who when it comes to fighting adversaries in court will “sue their dicks off.” There’s also a new vigilante hanging around, Metal-fella, who is a lot like Marvel’s Iron Man. Whether the production will face any litigation from Marvel, Meyers quipped: “No one knows who came up with which one first. Maybe we’ll sue people.” We’ll also see the family members of Season 1 villain Dr. Malocchio (fellow SNL alum Bill Hader) including Lady Malocchio (Rudolph) and Malocchio Jr. (Forte), the latter plotting revenge. Other zany plotlines for Season 2 include Perfect Man (voiced by brother Josh Meyers) getting in a bind and learning he needs the help of The Awesomes in court. Said Seth Meyers: “Perfect Man is a racist because he’s stupid.  He’s even against Atlantic Islanders, the people from Nantucket.” Read More »

Jodie Foster On ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Directing Emmy Nom: ‘Dramedy Is What I Do’

Jodie Foster On ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Directing Emmy Nom: ‘Dramedy Is What I Do’Jodie Foster is carving out a nice, new career as a TV director.  Though she hit a bump with her last feature directorial, the Mel Gibson drama, The Beaver ($971K),  she rebounded today with an Emmy nomination for her comedy series helming work on the third episode of Jenji Kohan’s Orange Is the New Black entitled “Lesbian Request Denied”. It’s actually Foster’s second Emmy nod overall, her first being for the Showtime 1999 movie she executive produced, The Baby Dance, starring Stockard Channing and Laura Dern.  It would be an understatement to say that the word ‘bold’ is always associated with Foster’s oeuvre, whether it’s playing a child prostitute in Martin Scorsese’s 1976 iconic Taxi Driver to producing and acting in the 2007  femme vigilante film The Brave One. Orange Is the New Black is arguably the first time that Foster as a director has dealt with the subject of lesbianism on screen.  She also returned to direct the second season premiere of Orange Is The New Black with the episode “Thirsty Bird” and also went behind the camera for Netflix‘s House of Cards episode ”Chapter 22″.   Frequently, feature directors are finding creative redemption in TV, read Doomsday British helmer Neil Marshall who was behind two Games of Thrones episodes, this season’s being “The Watchers on the Wall”.

Bart & Fleming: Is China Hollywood’s Future, Or Folly?

By and | Sunday June 29, 2014 @ 11:57am PDT

Bart & Fleming: Is China Hollywood’s Future, Or Folly?FlemingBartColumn_badge__140510005503Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this weekly Sunday column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business.

Bart: Everyone I encounter in town this week seems fixated on Chinese takeout — only it’s finance, not food. Specifically, funding for films and theme parks. Here’s the catch: For every mogul who claims he’s made a ‘killer deal,’ I run into ten who say their deals imploded. “Once your deal closes with the Chinese, that’s when the real negotiations begin,” according to one veteran of the co-production process. Jeff Robinov and Ryan Kavanaugh may have announced megadeals, but will they get their money? On a smaller scale, look what just happened to Paramount on their Transformers: Age Of Extinction deal – a Chinese partner (the Pangu Group) changed their minds when they saw the film and it endangered the China release of the movie. Two weeks ago China abruptly scrapped a giant alliance between the world’s three largest container-shipping companies, triggering confusion among Euro entities like Maersk as well as US lines.

‘The Dead’ Helmer Sets Female Vigilante Thriller ‘Never Let Go’

By | Monday June 16, 2014 @ 6:11pm PDT

‘The Dead’ Helmer Sets Female Vigilante Thriller ‘Never Let Go’EXCLUSIVE: Writer-director Howard J. Ford has set genre thriller Never Let Go as his next feature to follow 2010 zombie road pic The Dead and its sequel The Dead 2: India. Pic follows an American single mother on vacation in a beautiful but unfamiliar land who takes the law into her own hands when her child is abducted. As her quest for justice continues, her political connections back in the U.S. raise the stakes higher than at first glance.

The Latitude Films production is described as Taken and The Bourne Identity meets Run Lola Run. Ford is in preproduction casting for a female lead who can fill the role. “We need a gem of an actress who can pull off this part,” said Ford. “There is so much talent out there — and in my view not enough strong female leads — and so I want to find the absolute peak of this talent and bring it to the screen in a role that would challenge the very best screen actors.”

Filming is set to begin in September in Morocco and other locations. U.K.-based Ford co-directed the two Dead films with brother Jonathan, scoring a home video hit with the $150K-budgeted The Dead. The Dead 2: India is scheduled for a fall release via Starz/Anchor Bay.

CW Picks Up ‘The Flash’, ‘iZombie’, ‘Jane the Virgin’ & ‘The Messengers’ To Series

By | Thursday May 8, 2014 @ 12:01pm PDT
Nellie Andreeva

The CW split its new series orders between sister studios Warner Bros TV The CW logoand CBS TV Studios, with two pickups for each. That includes DC Comics-themed The Flash, from Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, and iZombie, from Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero, produced by Warner Bros TV, and soap Jane The Virgin, from  Jennie Snyder Urman, and thriller The Messengers, produced by CBS TV Studios. The CW had been mulling picking up four or five new series depending on Flash_CWhow many bubble series it would return — four new, three returning or five new and two returning. With The 100, Hart Of Dixie and Beauty And The Beast now renewed, the network went with four new series this season vs. five last season as it also previously renewed Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Supernatural, and Reign.

Still, that gives CW a very good batting average of four out of six pilots going to series. (Fox scored a rare perfect record for a broadcast network this year with 3-for-3). Those that got a pass include terrorism/family drama Identity and the Supernatural planted spinoff Bloodlines. Unlike last year’s Vampire Diaries planted spinoff The Originals, Bloodlines did not feature characters from the original series, and the planted spinoff episode was met with mixed reaction.

The pickups bring more testosterone/genre fare to the CW with The Flash, iZombie and The Messengers and a soapy drama, Venezuelan telenovela adaptation Jane The Virgin, to join Reign and Hart Of Dixie as the network has been navigating the two directions for the past couple of years with emphasis on fantasy and sci-fi genres. Three of the new shows come from well-known CW creators: Arrow‘s Berlanti and Kreisberg, Veronica Mars‘ Thomas, and Emily Owens MD‘s Urman.

2014-15 Fox New Series

By | Wednesday May 7, 2014 @ 12:13pm PDT

2014-15 Fox New Series
Dramas

BACKSTROM (originally piloted by CBS last season)
ORDERED STRAIGHT TO SERIES; 13 EPISODES
STUDIO: 20th Century Fox TV, Far Field Productions
TEAM: Hart Hanson (w, ep), Kevin Hooks (ep), Leif G.W. Persson, (ep), Niclas Salomonsson (ep), Mark Mylod (d, ep)
LOGLINE: From creator/executive producer Hart Hanson (BONES), BACKSTROM is a subversive and comic crime procedural about an unhealthy, offensive, irascible – albeit brilliant – detective who is brought back from exile to run the Portland Police Bureau’s Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.). Detective Lieutenant EVERETT BACKSTROM is a man with no filter. After a five-year banishment to the traffic division for offensive behavior, he has returned from disgrace to lead Portland’s newly minted S.C.U. Tasked with navigating the city’s most sensitive and serious cases, he must solve each crime as he tries, and fails, to change his own self-destructive behavior. To no one’s surprise, Backstrom’s return is far from well-received, especially by his commanding officer, Police Chief ANNA CERVANTES (guest star Inga Cadranel, “Orphan Black”). Backstrom’s second-in-command and the person who actually supervises the day-to-day operations of the S.C.U. is Detective NICOLE GRAVELY. The ambitious and optimistic yin to Backstrom’s yang, she extends herself to the limit to counterbalance his erratic and controversial behavior. By her side is Detective Sergeant JOHN ALMOND, a tested veteran of the Bureau who doesn’t approve of Backstrom’s xenophobic antics; although he tries to find the light in people, when … Read More »

MIPTV: Social Experiments On The Rise As U.S. Buyers Hunt For Formats; Comedies Eye Comeback

mip tv logo 2Television executives are always on the hunt for the proverbial Next Big Thing, and for the past year or so, the Mipcom and Mip-TV markets have emerged as important hubs where some of the hottest new formats are unveiled. Following a strong showing at last fall’s Mipcom, Keshet‘s Rising Star sold around the world, including to ABC in the U.S. What will be the breakout format at Mip-TV which kicks off tomorrow? With the U.S. reality market yet to yield a new tentpole franchise since NBC premiered The Voice three years ago, and most established series more than a decade old, the necessity of finding reinforcements is ever more urgent and means execs need to be constantly vigilant as to where the new possibilities may be hidden. Likening the search to digging for truffles, Jennifer O’Connell, head of Core Media’s U.S. Television Division, says, “We’re really going to be sniffing around everywhere.” It’s important to keep a “very open mind to where a great idea can come from.” Regardless of the provenance, U.S. broadcasters are more apt to take a second look “if someone else did it first… It can be almost like an insurance policy,” she says.
