Meet 3 of the ‘Worst Cooks in America’ who hail from Southern California

Los Angeles resident Eric Smart once set his microwave on fire when he tried to cook raw bacon in a paper bag. And Louisa Sharamatyan, who lives in Glendale with her parents, served nearly raw fried fish to her family. But that’s nothing compared to Domaine Javier, a San Gabriel nurse whose terrible pasta sent someone to the emergency room.

In ‘Mr. Jones,’ director Agnieszka Holland tells the true story of the reporter who exposed Stalin’s famine in Ukraine

Filmmaker Agnieszka Holland says she thought she had finished, at least for the moment, making movies with the kind of weight and sorrow of some of her most acclaimed work. At 71, the Polish expatriate had made several films set in the Holocaust, such AS “Europa, Europa,” for which she earned an Academy Award nomination for best adapted screenplay, or “In Darkness,” which was nominated for the Oscar for best foreign film. Other movies focused on the soul-crushing nature of life under the totalit...

'Perry Mason' gets a gritty new look on HBO

"This is not your grandma's Perry Mason" isn't much of a marketing pitch. A better description for this sort-of origin story, however, is "Chinatown" meets "Boardwalk Empire," in a slick, gritty period crime drama that's good enough to make an argument for watching, if not quite an open-and-shut case.

KCBS-TV reporter Dave Lopez is retiring after 43 years at Channel 2

‘Perry Mason’ Review: A Pulpy, Hard-Boiled Series With Great Acting and a Messy Story

If you know Perry Mason at all, you likely know the character from the long-running late ’50s, early ’60s TV legal drama starring Raymond Burr as the famous lawyer who was known for getting suspects to blurt out confessions while on the witness stand. The roots of the character go back even further, from a series of novels starting in the 1930s to a radio serial that ran from the mid-1940s until the mid-’50s.

Director Howard Deutch talks about the enduring appeal of the John Hughes scripted ‘Pretty In Pink’

Howard Deutch had directed music videos for artists including Billy Idol and Billy Joel and had a thriving business cutting movie trailers for Hollywood studios when in 1985 he landed a dream gig directing his first-ever feature film. At the time, Deutch, now 69, says he was just happy for the opportunity, never thinking that 35 years later he’d still be talking about that movie, the John Hughes written and produced teen romantic comedy “Pretty In Pink.” “It’s a funny thing,” Deutch says of the ...

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.
