‘On Becoming a God in Central Florida’ Team on Exploring How the ‘American Dream is Really Rigged’

  • Variety
Like its protagonist, “On Becoming a God in Central Florida” is something of an underdog.

The journey to bring it to the public was one full of ups and downs. Originally developed for AMC, the show ended up sold to YouTube Premium. During the process, head of TriStar Television Suzanne Patmore Gibbs, who was instrumental in developing the show, unexpectedly passed away (in March 2018), while series star and executive producer Kirsten Dunst got pregnant and had her son (in May 2018). There were murmurings that it would launch on YouTube earlier this year, but it never materialized there, and then in June, Showtime announced it had acquired the 10-episode one-hour series. From there, it was a fast turn-around to get the show ready to launch on the premium cabler in August. Although the show has a linear premiere date of Aug. 25, true to form for the network, it dropped the first

Emmys 2019: Why Cultural Conversations Around Projects and Performers Boost Awards Chances

  • Variety
Visibility matters.

This is a refrain most often — and most importantly — sung about the representation of women, people of color, Lgbtq, those with disabilities and other marginalized groups within the entertainment industry. But in many ways, it is crucial for Emmy nominees, too.

After all, with more than 500 scripted series alone, the odds that the 25,000 members of the Television Academy have actually seen any part of a show, let alone all of it, get slimmer every year. Series or individuals with larger footprints have seemingly pushed forward this year. The ones that did land nominations scored accolades across the ballot.

Now that the time left on final round voting is ticking down quickly, visibility — both from a campaign perspective and a larger cultural conversation — will likely push one nominee to the front of the pack.

Away: Netflix’s Hilary Swank Astronaut Series Reveals Cast

Joseph Baxter Aug 9, 2019

Netflix astronaut series Away will star Hilary Swank as the commander of an international space crew, sent on a dangerous mission.

Away, a developing Netflix series, will head to space for a monumental mission with a commander played by two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank and television veteran Josh Charles.

Set as a 10-episode series, Away will be driven by showrunner Jessica Goldberg, who’s known as the creator of Hulu’s subversive 2016-2018 drama, The Path, and wrote the script to directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s 2020-scheduled, Tom Holland-headlined drama, Cherry. The series is said to be loosely inspired by an article published in Esquire about the real-life mission of astronaut Scott Kelly.

The official logline for Away describes a show that “centers on Emma Green [played by Swank], an American astronaut who must leave her husband and teenage daughter behind to command an international space crew embarking upon a treacherous mission.

Impeachment: American Crime Story to Cover Clinton Scandal, Cast Revealed

Joseph Baxter Aug 7, 2019

American Crime Story Season 3 will focus on the sex-strewn scandal that led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

American Crime Story's third FX anthology iteration will focus on the events pertaining to the U.S. House of Representatives’ October 1998 impeachment of President Bill Clinton for “high crimes and misdemeanors”; a bellwether media moment in which the serious news cycle merged with pop-culture-proliferated tabloid stories.

Bearing the title, Impeachment: American Crime Story, the season – initially planned back in 2017, but temporarily taken off the table – is now set to arrive in September 2020, showcasing the sordid affair through the eyes of Monica Lewinsky, the young former White House intern who bore the brunt of the media’s scorn as one-half of President Clinton’s Oval Office infidelity. Indeed, now over 20 years removed from the news cycle heyday of the scandal, Impeachment will see Lewinsky involved as a producer, telling

Patricia Arquette Gets Double Acting Emmy Nom For ‘The Act’ & ‘Escape At Dannemora’

Patricia Arquette Gets Double Acting Emmy Nom For ‘The Act’ & ‘Escape At Dannemora’
Patricia Arquette has doubled down in the Emmys nominations list this year, with nods for both her leading role in Showtime’s prison-based limited series Escape at Dannemora and for her supporting role in Hulu’s limited series The Act—both were based on real-life characters.

The last actress Emmy-nominated in two categories in the same year like this was Allison Janney in 2016, for Mom and Masters of Sex—a duo of awards she also actually won in 2014. Double nominations have been an interesting Emmy quirk in other instances too. For example Elisabeth Moss was nominated in 2013 for both her lead roles in Top of the Lake and in Mad Men. She was then expected to get another double nom in 2017 for The Handmaid’s Tale and for the second season of Lake, however, only the former was ultimately recognized.

In the Ben Stiller-directed Escape at Dannemora, Arquette plays Joyce Mitchell,

Sexy Beast Prequel Series Greenlit by Paramount Network

Sexy Beast Prequel Series Greenlit by Paramount Network
Paramount Network is moving ahead with a prequel TV series adapting the acclaimed crime drama, Sexy Beast.

Sexy Beast made its share of waves during the 2002 awards season, notably due to the 2001-released crime drama’s showcase of Sir Ben Kingsley – in shockingly transformative form – in his Best Supporting Oscar-nominated performance as the sociopathic powder-keg of a criminal, Don Logan. However, it seems that the property will do so again, this time in the form of a prequel TV series on the Paramount Network.

Indeed, the Sexy Beast prequel series – a shopped project picked up last year – has officially received the green light from Paramount Network, which just made the confident-inspired move of a straight-to-series order for a 10-episode inaugural season, according to Variety.

While no casting information has been revealed, the series, reportedly set during “the vibrant and volatile 1990s,” will explore the formation of the

‘The Other Two’: How Helene Yorke Deliberately Crafted a Character Who’s Clueless About Everything

‘The Other Two’: How Helene Yorke Deliberately Crafted a Character Who’s Clueless About Everything
“I, Heléne, am a lot,” said theater-turned-tv actress Heléne Yorke, owning her big personality during an interview with IndieWire.

The star of Comedy Central’s hit series “The Other Two” plays Brooke Dubek, a struggling Millennial who’s been drifting through life after an injury ended her career as a dancer. When her 13-year-old brother becomes a viral singing sensation overnight, she takes this as an opportunity to draft off his fame to find her calling.

Yorke, who had initially treaded the boards as an outlet for her outsized energy, can identify with making a major career transition after an injury. With a Bfa for Musical Theatre in hand, Yorke had landed gigs on and off Broadway, ranging from roles in “Grease” and “Wicked” to “American Psycho” and “Bullets Over Broadway.” While working on a show in Atlanta, she broke her ankle, which sidelined her for six weeks in her hometown of Los Angeles.

Emmy Fyc: Best Actress in a Drama Series

Team Experience is sharing FYCs as the Television Academy votes on Emmy nominations (voting closes on June 24th). Here's J.B...

Last year's winner Claire Foy can't repeat (as Emmy likes to do) because she didn't have a TV show this year.I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the Emmy category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. As someone who worships at the altar of dramatic actresses, it’s my favorite category, and therefore necessarily the one that causes me the greatest anguish. Sometimes, this category shocks and delights. But more often, as of late, anyway, I’ve been left wounded by egregious snubs and unwelcome surprises on nomination morning and Emmy night.

For example, I like Claire Danes, but did she really need a Second Emmy for her performance on Homeland, at the expense of Elisabeth Moss, who somehow never won for her iconic role on Mad Men?
