NEWS - Gay Rogers! In cantiere serie tv (comedy?) per raccontare la storia del primo calciatore americano a fare "coming out"


News tratta da Deadline.com
The story of professional soccer player Robbie Rogers, who became the first openly gay man to compete in a top North American professional sports league, is headed to television. Universal Television has optioned Rogers’ story rights for Craig Zadan and Neil Meron’s Storyline Entertainment to develop and produce a comedy series inspired by the young athlete’s experiences. Rogers spent one season at the University of Maryland, helping the college team win an NCAA Championship. He quickly turned pro, joining the Dutch team Heerenveen. He then spent five seasons with Major League Soccer’s Columbus Crew, winning the MLS Cup, and competed in the 2008 Olympics. Following a stint with English team Leeds United, on February 15, 2013, Rogers announced his retirement from professional soccer at age 25 and revealed he was gay. He said he was retiring to avoid the scrutiny from the press and fans, but after speaking at an LGBT youth event two months later, he decided that stepping down is a cowardly thing to do and he should use his platform to be a role model. The next month, he joined the LA Galaxy, becoming becoming the first openly gay man to play in a top North American professional sports league (NBA player Jason Collins, who had come out earlier that year, was a free agent at the time of his announcement). Zadan and Meron will serve as executive producers on the show, which falls under the duo’s overall deal at Universal TV. Rogers will serve as a producer. Storyline’s VP Development Mark Nicholson, who helped bring this to the company, will also serve in a producing capacity. Zadan and Meron are coming off a strong showing at the Emmys last week, netting a total of 18 noms for all of their event/longform projects — eight for the Oscars telecast, four for the Bonnie & Clyde miniseries, four for Sound Of Music LIVE! and two for the Anna Nicole movie.
There had been strong Hollywood interest in stories about gay pro athletes. Out At Home: The Glenn Burke Story is a feature in the works that tells the story of Los Angeles Dodgers and Oakland A’s player Burke, who was honest with his teammates and management that he was gay at a time in the 1970s when such a revelation was unheard of. OWN greenlighted and then shelved a docu-series about football’s first openly gay player, Michael Sam. After keeping their sexuality private for decades, professional athletes have started speaking out in the past couple of years, with Rogers, Collins and Sam breaking ground. Rogers’ deal was brokered by WME.

L'EDICOLA DI LOU - Stralci, cover e commenti sui telefilm dai media italiani e stranieri

CORRIERE DELLA SERA
"Orphan Black", il fascino del clone
"Lo specchio, il doppio, il clone. Temi classici della letteratura di ogni tempo, e di quella fantascientifica in particolare. Ma anche, sempre più, espedienti narrativi della lunga serialità televisiva, dal versante comedy (i doppelganger dei protagonisti di «How I Met Your Mother», le personalità multiple di «United States of Tara») alle tinte più scure dei thriller d'azione. Come nel caso di «Orphan Black», serie di produzione canadese scritta da Graeme Manson e John Fawcett, trasmessa negli Usa da Bbc America e in Italia da Premium Action (Mediaset Premium, martedì, ore 21.10). Sarah Manning ha alle spalle una vita difficile: l'adolescenza passata tra orfanotrofi e case famiglia, il rimpianto di una figlia abbandonata da un anno, una fuga con un amante violento e dedito allo spaccio. Ma nel momento in cui torna sui suoi passi, cercando di rimettersi in sesto, ecco l'imprevisto: in stazione vede una ragazza, del tutto identica a lei, gettarsi sotto un treno. Assumerne l'identità, e diventare così Elizabeth Childs, detective di polizia, sembra la strada più facile per prendere un pò di soldi e fuggire ancora, stavolta con il confidente Felix e con la figlia. Anche Elizabeth, però, è piena di traumi e di segreti; e soprattutto aveva già cominciato a indagare sulla presenza di altri suoi cloni in giro per il mondo, nel mirino di nemici che non esitano a uccidere. Ed è Sarah a proseguire la ricerca. Tatiana Maslany regge la serie caratterizzando bene Sarah/Elizabeth e gli altri sosia, nonostante alcune semplificazioni eccessive (la madre dei sobborghi, la studentessa geek). Alcuni dialoghi e situazioni sono un pò ingenui, ma i primi episodi pongono comunque le basi di una narrazione intricata e avvincente, con lo svelamento dei cloni e il comporsi dei frammenti di un segreto che turba situazioni già precarie".

NEWS - Welcome back, Mr.Robinson! Il ritorno di Bill Cosby in una sit-com multi-camera

News tratta da "Deadline.com"
At its executive panel, NBC revealed more details about its Bill Cosby multi-camera comedy project, which was put in development in January. It will be created by Mike Sikowitz and Mike O’Malley and produced by Sony TV, where Sikowitz is under an overall deal, NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said. Sikowitz is also tied as a showrunner to the Sony TV-produced new CBS comedy The McCarthys, so I had heard that O’Malley would be writing with Sikowitz supervising. Actor O’Malley, who is eyed for  one of the show’s leads, had been active on the writing side, starting with a staff writing job on Shameless, and has written a couple of pilots. As for the premise, it is a multi-generational family show, Salke said.
Bill plays the patriarch of the family, dispensing his classic wisdom on relationships and parenthood, with three daughters, husbands and grandchildren,” Salke said “It’s a classic big extended family sitcom.” The hope is for O’Malley to play one of the husbands, she added. The show is eyed for next summer or fall 2015.
The Bill Cosby project is part of NBC’s commitment to the multi-camera genre, Salke said.  Both Salke and NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt spoke of the difficulty getting multi-camera comedies on the air that stick, having just unsuccessfully tried with Sean Saves the World. (The network has seen some encouraging numbers for Undateable this summer.) “There is a generation of writers and producers that has moved away from multi-camera,” Greenblatt said. Added Salke, “Nine out of 10 writers come in wanting to write single-camera comedy.”
