Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut

Winstead in “Fargo”: FX Networks

Hot off the heels of her turn as con artist-with-a-heart-of-gold Nikki Swango on FX’s “Fargo,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead has booked her next role — and it’s in a woman-helmed film. Winstead is set to star in Eva Vives’ feature directorial debut, the semi-autobiographical “All About Nina.” The “Smashed” actress will portray the titular character, a professionally successful but personally dissatisfied stand-up comedian. Deadline broke the story.

“To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common, ‘Selma’),” the source summarizes, “who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.”

“All About Nina’s” supporting cast includes Kate Del Castillo (“Ingobernable”), Clea DuVall (“Veep”), Melonie Diaz (“Fruitvale Station”), Camryn Manheim (“Person of Interest”), Mindy Sterling (“Black-ish”), Angelique Cabral (“Band Aid”), Beau Bridges (“Masters of Sex”), Chace Crawford (“Gossip Girl”), and Jay Mohr (“Suburgatory”).

Deadline doesn’t specify, but it’s likely Vives will pen as well as direct the dark comedy, which originated at the 2016 Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters and Directors Labs. Vives will also produce with Diablo Entertainment’s Natalie Qasabian, Eric B. Fleischman, and Sean Tabibian. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Joshua Astrachan are exec producing.

Vives has previously directed the shorts “Me, Myself, & I,” “She Pedals Fast (For a Girl),” and “Join the Club.” She worked as a producer, editor, and casting director on the Sundance and Cannes awarding-winning short “Five Feet High and Rising.”

Winstead was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for playing an alcoholic trying to stay sober in “Smashed.” Her recent credits include “Mercy Street,” “BrainDead,” and “10 Cloverfield Lane.” She received a Saturn Award for her work in the latter.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Harvey Weinstein Scandal May Force Viacom to Rethink How It Launches the Paramount Network

Harvey Weinstein Scandal May Force Viacom to Rethink How It Launches the Paramount Network
As Viacom prepares to morph Spike TV into the Paramount Network, it may now face a Weinstein problem.

Paramount Network, which officially debuts on January 18, is being repositioned as Viacom’s basic cable destination for premium content, on par with networks like FX and AMC. As part of that transformation, it’s leaning heavily on the Weinstein Company’s TV label to help sell the idea of being a new home for upscale fare.

But the “Weinstein” brand now takes on a new meaning — and much more baggage — following the highly publicized sexual harassment allegations against company founder Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein’s actions toward women have been an open secret in Hollywood, yet the producer has remained a force in the business. While the Weinstein Co. has seen its stature in features diminish, it has recently bulked up on the TV side.

Camryn Manheim on Her S.T.E.A.M.-Powered American Girl Special & Watching Her Son Following in Her Footsteps
With a just-released Amazon special, a comedy headed to CBS in January and a miniseries in the works, it’s safe to say Camryn Manheim is staying busy — and she’s loving every second of it.

In Amazon’s original special An American Girl Story: Summer Camp, Friends for Life, Camryn portrays Rae, a S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art and math) camp administrator who demands her campers lose the technology and explore the outdoors instead.

What’s different about this film, however, is the choice of filmmakers to put young girls at a camp centered on

Emmy Contenders 2017: Guest Actress in a Drama

Emmy Contenders 2017: Guest Actress in a Drama
As two-time winner Margo Martindale was promoted to the supporting actress race for her work on “The Americans,” the category is free to crown a new winner. But it’s still likely to be a previous Emmy winner or nominee. Laverne Cox and Cicely Tyson have all been nominated for their roles here before; look for repeats. Khandi Alexander in particular enjoyed a fantastic turn in the “Scandal” finale, complete with memorable Mama Pope monologues. Carrie Preston has actually won for playing quirky lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni on “The Good Wife,” but now she’s moved to its spinoff “The Good Fight.” If enough voters caught the show on CBS All Access, she should be a lock for a nom. Alison Wright and Kim Dickens could earn their first nominations for their work on “The Americans” and “House of Cards,” shows they’ve been a part of for some time now. New

CBS: Stop Saying That ‘This Is Us’ Is the Biggest New Hit of the Year; ‘Bull’ Is

No “Bull,” CBS wants you to know that the freshman Michael Weatherly series is actually the No. 1 new show of the year in total viewers, over NBC’s lauded “This Is Us.”

“We congratulate them on their success, but we like winning,” CBS senior exec VP Kelly Kahl said. He also pointed out that even CBS’ “Blue Bloods” has a larger audience than any other drama on the other networks, except “This Is Us.”
