Mj Rodriguez, Women of ‘Pen15’ and ‘Vida’ Top List of TV’s New Leaders
Standing out in the TV landscape has been a challenge that has kept countless execs and creators up at night over the years. So in today’s small-screen climate of limitless choices, limited runs and sky’s-the-limit ideas, the population of audience-grabbing A-listers has inevitably swelled. As with any good all-you-can-consume menu, however, appealing to a wider variety of tastes through diverse talent and unique concepts with specific voices is emerging as a critical component in attracting — and retaining — an audience. As a result, the number of relative newcomers in leading roles has also increased, especially in this year’s lead actress race.

When Maya Erskine graduated theater school, she was accustomed to Shakespearean roles with colorblind casting. So when disheartening gigs such as “Asian Waitress” kept popping up on the audition circuit she realized fulfilling her creative drive would require more. Teaming up with Anna Konkle, whom she’d

Joseph Baxter Apr 12, 2019

Amazon wasted little time giving a green light to a second season of its action-drama, Hanna.

Hanna Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Utrax

Hanna's journey is over, but it's also just beginning.

On Hanna Season 1 Episode 8, she came full circle in how she viewed Erik as the two of them made their final stand together against Utrex.

Everything that she learned from the man who raised her and all the other experiences she had along the way when their isolated life was interrupted is the foundation she'll use in her new life with Cara/Girl 249.

The story of Hanna and Erik is one that will stick with me for a long time. It was perhaps the most complex and beautiful father and daughter relationships I've ever witnessed on a television series.

I knew Erik wasn't long for this world, and I knew that my hopes for a happy ending for the two of them would probably not come to fruition.

Hanna Season 1 Episode 7 Review: Road

Hanna continues to kick ass, and I'm not just talking about the show itself.

Doesn't it seem as if Hanna's skills are improving even without additional training?

On Hanna Season 1 Episode 7, Erik and Hanna have a heartfelt conversation about her past and her future, but Hanna isn't ready to let Erik go just yet.

I love Erik and Hanna's relationship so much it hurts.

When they said their goodbyes, it was almost unbearable.

At that point, we didn't know what was going to happen at the end, but Erik didn't want to leave Hanna, and she didn't want to leave him.

He knew that she wouldn't be able to have a normal life if they stayed together. Sawyer, Marissa, and anyone else associated with Utrex would have hunted them forever.

Hanna Season 1 Episode 6 Review: Mother

Hanna reunited with her father on Hanna Season 1 Episode 6 after a daring escape that left both Marissa and Sawyer in the dust.

The biggest question is why Hanna didn't try to break free from Marissa's grasp before her father arrived.

She could have easily killed Marissa at any point during her time in Marissa's custody, but she even let Marissa go when she and her father fled in the helicopter.

It could be that she wasn't sure if even with Marissa gone harm wouldn't come to Sophie and her family.

Hanna doesn't know anything about Sawyer but knew that people were coming to take her back where she belonged.

Hanna is also still very curious about who she is, and Marissa was the one who promised her answers.

If Marissa died there would be no guarantee she'd ever find out the truth.

'Hanna' Stars Joel Kinnaman, Mireille Enos on Reuniting After 'The Killing'

Amazon's thriller Hanna, based on the 2011 film of the same name, centers on a teenage girl (Esme Creed-Miles) raised by her father to be an assassin and chased by a shadowy spy organization. For fans of the AMC/Netflix series The Killing, it also marks the first time that stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman have worked together since the latter's 2014 finale.

The Emmy-nominated The Killing garnered a passionate fanbase who were particularly taken by Enos' thoughtful and reserved Sarah Linden and her streetwise partner, Stephen Holder (Kinnaman). Since then both have pursued other high-profile projects, including Enos' turn leading ...

Hanna Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Town

The sparks flew between Hanna and Anton on Hanna Season 1 Episode 5 when they spotted each other across the room at the party.

Their attraction was instant.

The only problem for Hanna was that her Bff had a major crush on Anton, and in a girl's world that spells trouble.

Of course, Hanna didn't know the boy that caught her eye was Anton until Sophie introduced them, but it didn't stop Hanna from fast forwarding a relationship with him.

Fast moving or not, it was a beautiful and sweet experience for Hanna.

And, it was very well done. The campfire embers floating into the air as the heat rose between Hanna and Anton was magnificent.

Sophie had no clue what was transpiring between her Bff and her crush because she was passed out in the back of her van under Dan's watchful eye, and it was probably for the best.

Hanna Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Father

The tension was thick on Hanna Season 1 Episode 4 when Hanna lashed out at her father and Marissa regained the upper hand.

I don't know about anyone else, but I was on the edge of my seat.

Hanna only knows a piece of the puzzle, but it was enough to turn her world upside down.

What she hasn't realized yet is that even though Erik isn't her biological father, he's still her father.   And she doesn't know that he also saved her from a lifetime of misery.  

Hanna's confusion and rage are understandable. 

Any child would be upset if they learned their entire existence has been a lie.

Listen: ‘Hanna’ Creator David Farr on ‘Telling a Deeper Story’ Than in the Movie

  • Variety
Welcome to “TV Take,” Variety’s television podcast. In this week’s episode, Variety Senior Features Editor, TV Danielle Turchiano talks with David Farr, creator and executive producer of Amazon’s “Hanna.”

Based on the 2011 film of the same name, which Farr co-wrote, “Hanna” tells the story of the titular young girl who has lived in a forest her entire life and has gained extraordinary physical abilities as a result. Hanna is thrown into a thrilling chase with an off-book CIA agent, while trying to find out who she really is.

Farr explains that the reason he wanted to tackle the story again was because the film “only told a slice of the story,” and he wanted to “go much further” and tell a “deeper story” this time around.

David, can you talk about the challenges of adapting a film you wrote to long-form television, and how you made the series compelling in its own right?

David: Sure. It dates back to the film itself. I wrote a screenplay, which Joe [Wright] adapted, obviously, directly into a movie, and as is always the case with a film, that process changed the story.

It changed the movie. Joe has a very big, colorful palette, a very charismatic way of directing, but he was very keen,

The Hanna TV Show is More Than An Adaptation

Matthew Schuchman Mar 28, 2019

We talked to the cast of Amazon Prime's Hanna, an adaptation of the 2011 movie, about bringing a new version of the story to life.

Prequels, sequels, and complete re-imaginings. More and more, the stories of the silver screen are finding new life on the small one. Generally (and thankfully), however, it is rare for a TV adaptation of a popular film, movie, or previous TV show to be a straight remake.

In the case of Amazon Prime’s Hanna, a remake is exactly what you get... at first. The first two episodes of this eight-episode first season take the viewer on a very familiar journey. Past that, however, the show offers new twists, turns, and changes that allow the story grow and expand into new avenues of exploration.
