Fall is fast approaching and tickets will go on sale for the upcoming 12th Annual PaleyFest Fall TV Previews from September 6 – 16th in Beverly Hills.

This year the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews will have screenings, cast and creatives from ABC, CBS, the CW, Fox, History, Hulu, Lifetime, NBC, Netflix and Telemundo!

I’m a HUGE TV Fan so I always look forward to the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview. Over the years it’s given me a chance to ‘meet’ TV shows that I hadn’t planned to watch but after seeing the first first episode and hearing the cast/creators talk I am willing to give them a ‘test watch’ or sometimes an unexpected fan (I’m looking at YOU the CW Dynasty!). This year they have Netflix’s Bojack a animated series that is really good and has characters that I see reflected in myself despite not being a talking horse, dog or cat! As far as the new shows I’m curious about the Charmed (the CW) reboot with Latina flavor and the Rookie (ABC) since I have a weakness for police dramadies but am willing to give all the shows the networks selected to highlight a chance but not Last Man Standing (Fox) didn’t like it on ABC so am sure I won’t like the continuation with move to the new network.

“Every September television fans know PaleyFest Fall TV Previews is the place to be for a first look at the most buzz-worthy new shows of the fall TV season, and engaging conversation and insight from the cast and creative teams behind them,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re honored to present this stellar lineup of new shows as well as several Emmy-nominated returning fan favorites.

In case you don’t know Mr. Newhart he is an Emmy and Grammy winning entertainer who’s humor has kept generation of fans laughing. The show I most loved was Newhart (1982-1990).

December 4th, 2016 by Cherry

Nashville is giving fans the holiday gift of a sneak preview of the premiere on Thursday, December 15th at 9PM ET/PT before the Season 5 starts January.

Watch “Nashville” live on Thursday, December 15 at 9pm ET/PT. The series is shot on location and is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment that has found a new home on CMT.

 

Like a lot of fans I flipped when ABC announced they would not renew the series that left so many unanswered question but when fans called out the city of Nashville and CMT picked up the show and now we get to find out what is in store for a loving but dysfunctional characters. I mean watching Maddie manipulated by her Svengali adult friend into declaring herself an adult, tossing her to the nefarious producer that was just about to take advantage of the teen before her father Deacon swooped in like an avenging night .. well <zoinks> that was some major nighttime soap drama that will keep me tuning into the new season.

 

We catch up with Rayna and Deacon as Maddie is back home trying to navigate womanhood, ambition and independence while still being a teenager. It looks like Maddie has a new crush with a young black boy or man (he looks like he’s age appropriate) but I hope Rayna and Deacon don’t ignore their youngest daughter as the deal with their wild child! Of course Rayna still has to juggle Highway 65 that isn’t the successful label she had hoped especially when her marque star Juliette has lost some of her luster. Juliette has always been a spitfire dealing with a difficult childhood, bad taste in men and hair trigger temper. But Juliette is still reeling from her post partum depression, messy divorce and if she will survive the plane.

 

Well as a fan I have no idea what drama awaits us but I know we’ll have great music as we enjoy the return of Nashville with tears, screams and choosing sides! I’m Team Juliette all the way!

 

Hulu is excited to announce that Nashville fans will get an early glimpse into the new season just in time for the holidays! The highly-anticipated new season of Nashville may officially launch on Hulu January 6th, but the first hour of the two-hour premiere will now be available to stream early on December 16th.

Need a refresh? Hulu is also the exclusive destination for fans to catch up on all episodes of Nashville and relive their favorite moments of the series anytime, anywhere. Simply head to Hulu to stream seasons 1 – 4 of Nashville now.

 

Nashville” is set against the backdrop of the city’s music scene and follows Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes. Both women face personal and professional challenges as they navigate their paths as artists and individuals. Surrounding them and often complicating their lives are their family, friends and, in some cases, lovers, as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business. Music City can mean so many things to different people. In “Nashville,” musicians and songwriters are at the heart of the storm driven by their own ambitions. Some are fueled by their creativity and passion for fame. Others struggle to cope with the pressures of success and are doing everything in their power to stay on top.

 

“Nashville” stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad and Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad.

I’m a huge fan of the Mindy Kaling Project and when it first premiered on Fox I was very curious about a female led series starring a woman who didn’t look like a lead cast member on TV normally. I fell in love with the zany series as I followed a woman that was like me. Doing OK with the career but love life was a complete diseaster always choosing the wrong guy for the wrong reason. 

Thursday, September 15 – HULU
PaleyFest Fall TV Previews Special Event: 
The Mindy Project: Inside the Writers Room
Mindy Kaling, Creator, Executive Producer and “Mindy Lahiri”
Ike Barinholtz, “Morgan Tookers”
Matt Warburton, Executive Producer

Image result for mindy project huluWhen Fox canceled the series I yelled <boo> from the rooftops the show wasn’t perfect but it was fun and one of the few series led by an Asian actress! When Hulu took the opportunity to continue the series I expected a big change from budget per episode to more freedom to explore adult subject matters. Hulu has delivered more a signature series that keeps me subscribing but no binging since it’s released weekly like network TV. 

PaleyFest Previews: The Mindy Project-Writer’s Room is SOLD OUT

I’ve always wanted to chat with not just the cast and producers but the writers of the series that embraces a quirky curvy woman who is confident and sexual. Well the Paley Center has answered my prayers! This year the Paley Fest opening Fall TV Preview 2016 will be a talk with the writers of the series. 

 

 

 

I want to chat with them about the major cast change of Danny and Mindy splitting up to accommodate his no longer being a FT cast member. Last season they explored co-parenting with humor and the sharp edges of two strong willed people still trying to control the other. I think the sixth season should be a great arc and able to focus on not only new regular cast members but more of her co-workers at the clinic. I really like the storyline of the egg clinic but it can be a story suck with not that much payback so hope they cut it down even further so that we can enjoy her interacting with dating, navigating being a single divorced mom and friendship. Every woman needs her crew!

If I get on the red carpet I want to ask about how they will handle Danny as a recurring character. Will he be written out or use text/phone calls/notes to keep the story of co-parenting. Does Hulu allow free reign with humor and adult subject matter or have they ever looked at a script and said that’s a step TOO far?!? Will you age up the child to create more comedy situations with him going to school and being a rebellious kid? I know that they have shoehorned a connection with the new doctor but I’d like her to be back on the market and dating ‘United Nations’ style! It’s hilarious when Mindy skewers the casual racism within POC communities. I’d love to have more episodes of Mindy interacting with the Indian and Asian communities with episodes of how Asian’s rank themselves, introducing her son to other interracial kids/families, a ‘funny’ episode about profiling and her exploring more Indian centric episodes with her family. I LOVE her brother he’s hilarious, handsome and can sing! Have they ever thought of a Bollywood/Musical episode with original music and lots of dancing! I love that Mindy loves her curvy body and that she’s a confidant sexual woman. For instance a suit makes you think of a line or episode? 

 

That’s a lot of questions but I am very curious about the writers of this zany series. What do you think I should ask the stars and writers? Leave the question below…..

From Guillermo Del Toro and Carlton Cuse - The StrainIf you haven’t been watching Guillermo Del Toro and Carlton Cuse horror series The Strain you’ve missed out on one of the best series on TV. You can watch either streaming on Hulu or grab a disc/blu ray at local retailers.

I found this ‘vampire’ series fascinating because it sort of fits with my belief that vampires are scary as F! I mean I love the idea of being young forever but I’ve never thought they’d be beautiful and the idea of bringing blood is soo gross. I mean I’ve never seen a comic book or movie where people talk about rather vampires could get STDs or AIDS especially when they were humans.

The Strain handles the idea that humans would no longer be at the top of the food chain in a scary way. I mean who would really believe that Vampires would exist and that they were killing people. I mean the average person would not believe ‘their own lying’ eyes if they saw an attack or would run screaming (I know I would run like a scalded cat).

If the Master offered to turn you (a higher Vamp) would you say yes? Or would you be team human fighting against the scourge?

The Better Call Saul cast took to the red carpet at PaleyFest 2016 on March 12th at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. 

Bromantic co-creators Peter Gould (Creator, EP) and Vince Gilligan (Showrunner, EP, Writer) showed their excitement about their flourishing Breaking Bad spinoff (airing Monday nights on AMC)

BFFs Michael Mando and Rhea Seehorn were in hot pursuit, followed by the rest of the Saul cast (as seen in the video).

Variety media strategist, Debra Birnbaum, praised the first season for its “depth, humor and heartbreak”. Before the audience of hardcore Saul fans could collect themselves, we were surprisingly treated to a first look at the newest episode, before the rest of the world could lay eyes on it!
The booming and bumping of Atmos technology was palpable inside the Dolby Theatre – it was a real treat to see each brilliantly calculated shot matched with such expert sound design from the Saul creative team.

The crowd at PaleyFest roared its approval in sheer delight and surprise as a surprise guest appearance of Mark Margolis (Tio Salamanca) lit up the screen! Even title star Bob Odenkirk (“Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman”) was a little shocked, watching it all back: “I can’t remember what happens in these episodes.”

Peter Gould tied up the dynamic PaleyFest conversation with his personal discipline mantra on integrating Breaking Bad characters: “The difficulty is not to overdo it…to have characters walking in the background or having mud splashed on them as Jimmy drives by.”

Inline image 4
Fans of Better Call Saul will surely enjoy the new season, which the writers can promise is full of difficulties between Jimmy and Chuck (Michael McKean), and an ensuing struggle between Jimmy and Kim (Rhea Seehorn) to re-kindle their romance and reclaim their own narratives. Her character’s “I save me” line is a huge slap in the face for Jimmy, who will evidently go through a lot more until Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan see fit to transition him to sleazy fan-favorite, Saul Goodman! Will it happen anytime soon?

In the words of Peter Gould himself: “I hate to say it, but there is no master plan.”
