Thomas Schlamme Elected Directors Guild President

Thomas Schlamme Elected Directors Guild President
Veteran TV director Thomas Schlamme has been elected president of the Directors Guild of America for a two-year term, succeeding Paris Barclay.

Schlamme was selected by acclamation of the 147 delegates at the DGA’s convention on Saturday at DGA headquarters in Los Angeles.

Barclay announced earlier this year that he would not seek a third term in accordance with the DGA tradition of presidents only serving two terms. The DGA represents more than 17,000 members.

Schlamme has been on the DGA national board since 2005 and was most recently third VP. He was co-chair of the 2014 and 2017 negotiating committees together with secretary-treasurer Michael Apted.

In February, the DGA honored Schlamme with the Robert B. Aldrich Achievement Award for service to the DGA and its membership. Schlamme joined the DGA in 1978.

Emmys Flashback: When Aaron Sorkin's 'SNL' Send-Up Earned Noms But Fizzled

Saturday Night Live, which could have its best year for Emmy nominations in decades — thanks to Donald Trump — was honored back in 2006 in a way few TV shows ever have been: Aaron Sorkin created a series about it. Still hot off his success with The West Wing, the writer-producer developed Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, an hourlong drama centered on the workings of a Los Angeles-based, SNL-like show.

From the beginning, Studio 60 had major buzz. There was a bidding war between NBC and CBS, with the Peacock winning by paying what was reportedly "a...

Amanda Peet Revisits Studio 60, Bent, Good Wife and Togetherness, Teases Brockmire's 'Very Feminist' Episode
Amanda Peet’s latest project, the under-the-radar Brockmire, is about to give birth to its most politically incorrect episode yet.

On the IFC comedy, the Studio 60 and Togetherness standout plays Jules, the owner of a minor-league baseball team who hires (and subsequently falls for) disgraced Mlb announcer Jim Brockmire (played by man-of-a-million-voices Hank Azaria). After revealing to the title character that she was pregnant with his child at the end of Episode 5, Wednesday’s half-hour (airing at 10/9c) finds Jules and Brockmire mulling over whether they want to have the child, or whether she should have an abortion.

CBS Alternative Programming Chief Chris Castallo to Exit

CBS Alternative Programming Chief Chris Castallo to Exit
Chris Castallo is poised to exit CBS after nearly four years as the network’s head of alternative programming.

Castallo, exec VP of alternative programming, will stay on until a successor is named. A CBS spokesman confirmed Castallo intends to leave when his contract expires in September.

It’s understood that Castallo and CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller have been discussing a transition for some time. CBS’ search for a new alternative programming chief is complicated by the fact that Geller is on a medical leave of absence as he recovers from a mild heart attack.

Castallo’s departure from the Eye is described as an amicable parting. CBS has failed to launch any lasting unscripted franchises on Castallo’s watch as department head. Most recently, the manhunt competition “Hunted” was a disappointing performer for the network despite a big premiere send-off after the Afc Championship game in January.

At the same time, Castallo

I’m 100% Behind Aaron Sorkin Screenwriting Superhero Movies

It’s hard to picture the man who wrote titles such as “A Few Good Men,” “The American President,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Social Network,” “Moneyball” and “Steve Jobs,” taking his skills to comic book films. Sorkin also created and wrote most of the episodes of “The West Wing,” “SportsNight,” “Studio 60” and “The Newsroom.” But now he might be throwing his name into the collective money making machine ring of Marvel and DC. Recently at CinemaCon Sorkin made mention of his recent plans. “I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel,” Sorkin told ComicBook.com while on

Everyone’s Favorite Everyman John Goodman Receives Walk of Fame Honor

Everyone’s Favorite Everyman John Goodman Receives Walk of Fame Honor
With his jocular, yet authoritative voice matched with a wide grin and gleaming eyes, John Goodman could very well be the definition of a character actor. The guy filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen routinely cast as the sidekick who lands some of the most memorable lines in their movies or whom Lorne Michaels frequently calls up to host and guest star on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” With the latter, it helps that he seems comfortable with dressing in drag.

And, despite being a marquee name with a scroll of TV, film, and theater credits, Goodman is perfectly fine with this distinction. “I still consider myself a character actor,” Goodman says. “I think it’s a good thing. I think every actor’s a character actor to a certain extent. Character actor has a lot of different definitions. I’m just a mutt. I just keep going for the bone.

Golden Globes: Sarah Paulson Wins Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Movie or Miniseries
Sarah Paulson took home the Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in a TV movie or miniseries on Sunday night.

The actress beat out Felicity Huffman in American Crime, Riley Keough in The Girlfriend Experience, Charlotte Rampling in London Spy and Kerry Washington in Confirmation.

The win is Paulson's first, though she has been nominated in the category twice before — in 2013 for HBO's TV movie Game Change and in 2007 for Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Paulson previously won an Emmy in 2016 for her role as Marcia Clark in the...

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in January 2017, and The Best Episodes of Each
1. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” Season 1 (available January 13)

Why Should I Watch It? Netflix has sunk quite a sum into this ambitious adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” Quite unlike the film version starring Jim Carrey, Netflix’s serialized adaptation will incorporate Lemony Snicket as a character (just he was in the book). Patrick Warburton plays the titular author recounting the tale of three Baudelaire children who are taken under the wing of the evil Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) when their parents encounter an unforeseen tragedy. And from what we’ve seen, Snicket’s warnings of the story’s grim nature as well as his general incorporation only make the show itself more endearing. This is a children’s story too dark for some children and made with adult expectations in mind.

Sarah Paulson and Amanda Peet Have a Girls' Night Out at the Critics' Choice Awards
Sarah Paulson left her girlfriend, Holland Taylor, at home on Sunday night, instead bringing her Bff, Amanda Peet, as her date to the Critics' Choice Awards in La. The actresses walked the red carpet together in stunning dresses and held hands while doing interviews and posing for photos. Sarah and Amanda have been close friends since meeting on the set of the WB series Jack & Jill back in 2009 and also starred together on NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip in 2006. Most recently, they shared a sweet kiss while attending an opening night performance of The Babylon Line in NYC last week. While it certainly isn't the first time Amanda has accompanied Sarah at an award show, we're a little surprised that the actress, who portrayed prosecutor Marcia Clark on American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, didn't bring the real-life Marcia on Sunday night like she did

“Starting with ‘Sports Night,’ through ‘The West Wing,’ ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,’ ‘The Newsroom’ and beyond, Aaron Sorkin has changed the language of television,” said Wgaw President Howard A. Rodman. “His knowing, incisive, witty, brave, deeply intelligent writing has raised the bar for the rest of us, defined the notion of behind-the-scenes, and has in the process reminded us, again and again, of the special responsibilities that accrue to our profession. For as long as people walk and talk – at the same time, of course – Sorkin’s dialogue will be remembered.
