Here’s why HBO’s Perry Mason is returning to a gritty LA for new series

Perry Mason has been a TV icon since the 1950s, the archetypal courtroom lawyer whose incisive cross-examination inevitably saves the day.  The character was created by the author Erle Stanley Gardner. A lawyer who advocated for the disenfranchised, immigrants and people of color, Gardner later turned to writing, starting with pulp stories and novels in the 1930s on his way to writing 151 books and selling 325 million copies. Gardner, who lived and worked in Temecula for more than 30 years, h...

Why Gabriel ‘Fluffy’ Iglesias returned to his Long Beach high school for his Netflix series

Stand-up comedy star Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias is known for his love of shorts, Hawaiian-style shirts and Volkswagen buses, and for being one of the funniest comedians around, but he’s also gaining fame as an educator, shaping young minds at his old high school in Long Beach. No, he doesn’t have a side gig as a substitute teacher, but he does have a show on Netflix called “Mr. Iglesias,” which returns for a second season on June 17.

She was 39.

‘Cops’ TV show axed in response to protests against police brutality

It remains to be seen if the ongoing protests over the tragic death of George Floyd will bring major changes to police departments across the nation. But they’ve already succeeded in pushing some TV crime fighters off the screen. The Paramount Network on Tuesday announced that it has canceled the long-running unscripted series “Cops.” The move follows an earlier decision by the cable network to pull episodes of the show off its schedule in response to the death of Floyd at the hands of police in...

‘Rodham’ author Curtis Sittenfeld reveals the secrets of her fictional Hillary Clinton

The premise of “Rodham,” Curtis Sittenfeld’s new novel, is remarkably simple: What if Hillary Rodham never married Bill Clinton. In the book, Sittenfeld explores an array of topics as complex as the real Hillary. From its unique, counterfactual perspective, Rodham reexamines the themes behind many Clinton-related conversations over the past decades, everything from personal and political sexual dynamics to media coverage of women in politics. The book includes a head-spinning mix of real events ...

Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue talked to 40 famous couples for ‘What Makes A Marriage Last’

When Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue learned a close friend was getting divorced after nearly 30 years of marriage, the actress and the talk show host — who themselves are celebrating 40 years of marriage this month — were shaken. Thomas, who can remember hiding in the bushes when she was a child to watch 18-year-old Elizabeth Taylor leave for the church for the first of eight ill-fated marriages, thought that a relationship that had weathered three or four decades ought to be able to go the dista...

Exit Lines: Mad as Hell

I’ve watched Belgian director Ivo van Hove deconstruct and reupholster classic texts since an outstanding Off Broadway production of The Misanthrope in 2007. It used video to immerse us more fully in the world of Molière, and broke the fourth wall in novel ways, as when the actors headed outside the theater for a scene, followed by videographers. Since then Broadway has embraced his vision, with acclaimed, award-winning productions of A View from the Bridge and The Crucible blowing the dust of d...

A montage I'd like to see on YouTube: TV characters watching TV and talking about how TV is like or not like real life.

For example, in "Friends," the friends are watching TV, and the character Joey — who is an actor (played, of course, by an actor) — says: "It really hit me last night. I'm gonna be on 'Days of our Lives.' And then I started thinkin' about all of you, and how these are the days of our lives.”That's from "The One With the Lesbian Wedding" in Season 2. As you may know, I've been given the box set of the complete episodes of "Friends" and I am watching them all. Here's the uncut script of that episo...

‘Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later’ Trailer: It’s Time for a Camp Firewood Reunion

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the Sundance comedy hit from 2001 was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is fina...

Ms. Foundation CEO talks Portland Women's March unrest, Trump and more

A lot has changed since Teresa Younger became president and CEO of the Ms. Foundation for Women in 2014. The most significant change: the election of Pres. Donald Trump. Founded in 1973 by Gloria Steinem, Patricia Carbine, Letty Cottin Pogrebin and Marlo Thomas, the Ms. Foundation is about "building collective power and amplifying the power of those who are marginalized through funding and organizing in the areas of health, safety and economic justice," said Younger.

The name I looked for in the tributes to Mary Tyler Moore: Marlo Thomas.

When Mary Tyler Moore died, was she celebrated as a television first having something to do with feminism? You can't say "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" presented a new kind of woman without dealing with the earlier show, "That Girl":That Girl is an American sitcom that ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971. It starred Marlo Thomas as the title character Ann Marie, an aspiring (but only sporadically employed) actress, who moves from her hometown of Brewster, New York, to try to make it big in New York Ci...

How Mary Tyler Moore Revolutionized TV For Female Writers Like Me

In the beginning days of feminism, early 1970s, even after Betty Friedan gave it a name in her groundbreaking book, The Feminine Mystique, many women of America were discovering their own voices, but not on Television.The only comediennes were either second bananas, like Rose Marie or Imogene Coca, and neither was known for her looks. Lucille Ball was a comedy icon and businesswoman, but her characters were more slapstick. Finally, Marlo Thomas broke the mold with her unmarried career woman, An...
