Panels are an opportunity for fans to connect with their favorite creators. Los Angeles Comic Con took place on October 27-29 and offered dozens of panels for fans to attend when they were not walking the floor. The convention may have ended, but these panels left a lasting impression on me. Read more of this article »

I am looking forward to watching the November 11th film about the murder of Reeva Steenkap by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorioius with his legal maneuverings to avoid paying for this crime. I remember when he said that he thought it was an intruder that was in the bathroom and he HAD to shoot multiple times. It sounded fishy and just an excuse to kill the woman who was trying to leave him. Check out the trailer and tell me what you think. Should he be in jail or free to prey on other innocent women …

OSCAR PISTORIUS: BLADE RUNNER KILLER

PREMIERES SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11 AT 8pm ET/PT ON LIFETIME!

 

“Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer” tells the story of the sprint runner dubbed the “Blade Runner,” and his rise to fame as a gold medalist Paralympic champion and as the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics. Oscar’s (Andreas Damm, “Elementary”) resilience to overcome his disability combined with his apparent fairy tale relationship with model Reeva Steenkap (Toni Garrn, “Under the Bed”) turned him into a media favorite. This all shattered one Valentine’s Day night when four bullets were fired and Reeva’s life was taken. Her brutal death shocked the world and the court room drama that followed consumed the news. “Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer” provides an inside look at the events leading up to Reeva’s killing, the cracks that formed in the relationship between Oscar and Reeva, as well as the courtroom drama that followed, revealing what happened on that tragic night.

 

The film was produced by Eric Tomosunas and Swirl Films for Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Leslie Greif. The film will have its world television premiere on November 11, 2017 on Lifetime. Norman Stone serves as director; Amber Benson is the writer.

Relive the 80s at the Paley Center for Media and celebrate The Goldbergs (ABC) on October 17, 2017 with a screening, panel conversation and audience Q&A with the cast and creative team.

Lea Thompson returns to direct the landmark episode, which will be Halloween-themed.

PaleyLive Fall 2017 season welcomes fans of the ABC series The Goldbergs. Fans of the series enjoy laughing on the series based on creator Adam F. Goldberg’s childhood memories from his families videotaped home movies. The series has delighted fans reliving their own memories and also showing current generation how people survived without a cellphone and twitter.

ABC’s The Goldbergs 100th episode will go where no series has gone before with the ultimate geek debate Star Trek vs Star Wars. The episode is called ‘Trek Wars’ and Adam (Sean Giambrone) is sure he’s found his soulmate in girlfriend Jackie (Rowan Blanchard), but he’s stunned when their first Halloween together reveals that she’s a Star Trek fan while he’s devoted to Star Wars. The ultimate geek dispute may be a hurdle their relationship cannot overcome.

The episode will be directed by Back to the Future alum Lea Thompson who returns to direct her second episode set to air Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

“The Goldbergs perfectly captures those fun and crazy days of Pacman, big hair, and Rubik’s Cube,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO.  “This program promises to be an evening of nostalgia and laughter, and is one of the many reasons why PaleyLive programs are the premier experience for both the public and industry professionals.”

The Paley Center proudly welcomes the cast and creative team including: Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Beverly Goldberg”), George Segal (“Pops Solomon”), Sean Giambrone (“Adam Goldberg”), Haley Orrantia (“Erica Goldberg”), Troy Gentile (“Barry Goldberg”), Adam F.

The new short 8 part film series Queers will premier October 14th to bring awareness to the 50th Anniversary of the Sexual Offenses Act. The Sexual Offenses Act partial decriminalized homosexual acts between men in the UK. Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) directed and curated the film series with award winners Alan Cumming, Ben Whishaw, Rebecca Front, Russell Tovey, Gemma Whelan, Ian Gelder, Kadiff Kirwan and Fionn Whitehead. Taking in 1957’s Wolfenden Report, the HIV crisis and the 1967 Sexual Offence Act itself, the eight monologues will explore some of the most poignant, funny, tragic and riotous moments of British gay history and the very personal rites-of-passage of British gay men through the last one hundred years.                                         

Sarah Barnett, BBC AMERICA President, commented, “Queers is a unique and affecting series of short films about the British Gay experience. Brilliantly written and performed, these monologues may be compact but they are brimful of humor, heartbreak, joy, humanity and tenderness.”

In The Man On The Platform, Ben Whishaw (London Spy, Spectre) returns from the trenches of the First World War, while a hundred years later, Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) reflects on gay marriage in Something Borrowed.

 

More Anger finds Russell Tovey (Him and Her, Being Human) playing a gay actor in the 1980s, and Rebecca Front (War and Peace, Humans) contemplates her very particular marriage in Missing Alice.

 

Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones, Decline and Fall), Kadiff Kirwan (Black Mirror, Chewing Gum), Ian Gelder (Snatch, Game of Thrones) and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk, HIM) appear respectively in A Perfect Gentleman, Safest Spot In Town, I Miss The Warand A Grand Day Out, each examining the very different attitudes and social changes in gay men’s lives over the century.

The films are written by Matthew Baldwin, Jon Bradfield, Michael Dennis, Keith Jarrett, and Gareth McLean, who are writing for television for the first time, alongside established screenwriters Jackie Clune, Brian Fillis and Gatiss himself.

 

The series is produced by BBC Studios Pacific Quay Productions and is a co-production of BBC and BBC AMERICA.

 

 

    

BBC AMERICA is a hub of innovative, culturally contagious programming including the worldwide phenomenon and critical darling Planet Earth II, top-rated science-fiction phenomenon Doctor Who, fan-favorite Orphan Black, groundbreaking unscripted series Top Gear, buzzy and wildly bizarre Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency starring Elijah Wood, as well as the upcoming series Killing Eve from Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Blue Planet II, the next chapter in the epic story of our planet.  A joint venture between BBC Worldwide (the commercial arm of the BBC) and AMC Networks, BBCA’s influential shows have attracted critical acclaim and earned Emmy® Awards, Peabody Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards and Golden Globes®. Created in 1998, the irrepressible network has garnered one of cable’s most curious, educated and affluent audiences, with many properties boasting super-fan levels of engagement.

It’s the sixth and final season of The Mindy Project on Hulu which means we will be without the series that had a stylish female lead who didn’t compromise about being professional AND embracing color!

 

“Costume designing The Mindy Project has been a career defining experience for me, I could never have imagined how magical this project would be. Looking back over six seasons and 117 episodes, I am very proud of the colorful, fashionable world I was able to create and share with the fans of The Mindy Project. This exhibit is a gift to the fans who have been so supportive all these years,” said costume designer Salvador Perez.

 

To celebrate this milestone the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will have “The Mindy Project”: Six Seasons of Style Curated by Costume Designer Salvador Perez interactive exhibit with cast costumes from past and present seasons. It will feature life-size episodic photography, costume sketches and behind-the-scenes video segments that will take visitors inside Mindy Lahiri’s fun, fabulous and oh-so-stylish closet! The first-of-its-king exhibit is curated by the series’ Emmy-nominated Costume Designer and President of the Costume Designers Guild, Salvador Perez and will run exclusively at the Paley Center beginning August 26, 2017.

 

“We’re thrilled to give fans of The Mindy Project the rare up-close opportunity to see the fun and vibrant costumes worn by the loveable Mindy Lahiri,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “This exclusive exhibit is one of the many examples of the unique, artistic, and immersive exhibit experiences the Paley Center provides to visitors year round.”

 

“Salvador Perez is an incredible artist who matched Mindy Lahiri’s larger-than-life personality with couture beyond any woman’s dreams. You may not approve of everything Mindy says, but you always approve of her fashion,” said The Mindy Project creator, writer, executive producer and star Mindy Kaling.

The final, sixth season of The Mindy Project premieres Tuesday, September 12 on Hulu, with new episodes streaming weekly on Tuesdays. All episodes of seasons one through five are currently streaming on Hulu.

Just in case you had wanted to break open your piggy bank the Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers Filming Miniatures from The Gary Cannavo Collection sold for 1.8 million dollars!

Image result for buck rogers ships

The Profiles in History’s Hollywood Auction 89 was just a few weeks ago on June 26 – 28th and comprised of the definitive collection Battlestar Galactica & Buck Rogers spaceship filming miniatures. It was 23 spaceships all belonging one Boston based collector named Gary Cannavo that was purchased over a period of 25 years. The miniatures were designed and built by the creators who worked on Star Wars. These are from series that still used the art technology of miniatures before Hollywood switched to CGI.

The owners hope that the collection will stay in tact and be exhibited for fans to be able to enjoy them so they decided to sell in a single lot for an estimated $1,500,000 – $2,000,000

Highlights from the collection include the screen used heart and soul of the Battlestar Galactica rag-tag fleet, the Galactica and the screen used, Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper. From Buck Rogers, Buck’s screen used Star Fighter and Buck’s screen used Ranger 3.

2017 PaleyLive LA Spring Season

The Paley Center For Media in Beverly Hills One Day at a Time Program will Feature a Special Screening of the Series, a Panel Conversation and Audience Q&A with the Cast and Creative Team as part of the PaleyLive LA Spring Season of events including the CW’s Riverdale (April 27th), Speechless (May 9th) and the Dirty Dancing Musical (May 18th).

This modern update keeps the basic story of a divorced woman juggling career, being catholic, an opinionated mother, kids and being a divorcee but with a modern twist. Added in the mix is the reality of dealing with the bureaucracy of service as a former soldier, immigration and sexual orientation

I am very excited to cover and attend the panel to learn why Mr. Lear decided to reboot the series on Netflix, hear about the casting of the series and the new spin with the hispanic family in the new gentrified Los Angeles. We can look forward to new stories with Season 2 on Netflix but before that happens leave a comment below of what I should ask the cast and production team.

Justina Machado, “Penelope”; Rita Moreno, “Lydia”; Isabella Gomez, “Elena”; Marcel Ruiz, “Alex”; Norman Lear, Executive Producer; Gloria Calderon Kellett, Showrunner & Executive Producer; Mike Royce, Showrunner & Executive Producer; and Brent Miller, Co-Executive Producer, are scheduled to participate, with additional panelists to be announced.

“Upon its premiere, One Day at A Time proved to be one of the smartest and freshest new shows to enter the television landscape,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “PaleyLive programs are praised for presenting the best of what television has to offer and this event is no exception. We’re so proud to add An Evening with One Day at a Time to the incredible lineup of shows featured at the Paley Center this spring.”

One Day at a Time, Netflix and Sony Pictures Television’s inspired update of the classic 70’s-era sitcom, has received well-deserved praise from audiences and critics alike. Featuring an incredible ensemble of actors and a brilliant creative team led by Executive Producer Norman Lear and Showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, the series is at once timeless and decidedly of the moment.  The series introduces the Alvarez family including single mom “Penelope” (Justina Machado), a nurse and Afghanistan veteran; daughter “Elena” (Isabella Gomez); son “Alex” (Marcel Ruiz); and Penelope’s mother “Lydia” (Rita Moreno), along with their building superintendent, “Schneider” (Todd Grinnell). Together they bring to life one of the most heartfelt and consistently funny series on television today.
