NEWS - Arriva la "Colombo" con i capelli rossi! Da domani "Mysteries of Laura" su Premium Stories (in arrivo anche la versione italiana!!!)
Il ritorno in grande stile di Debra Messing di “Will&Grace” avviene in “Mysteries of Laura”, in prima tv su Premium Stories dal 5 settembre (ogni sabato in prima serata). Firmata da Jeff Rake, è basata sulla serie spagnola “Los misterios de Laura” di Carlos Vila e Javier Holgado, prossimamente trasposta anche nella fiction italiana “I misteri di Laura” su Canale 5 con Carlotta Natoli nel trench della protagonista. I riflettori della serie si accendono sulla doppia vita di Laura Diamond (Messing), una detective che si occupa di omicidi per il dipartimento di polizia di New York ma che deve far fronte altresì al ruolo di madre di due figli gemelli, oltre che esser sposata con il suo capo – Jake Broderick (Josh Lucas) - al quale vuole chiedere il divorzio. La firma DOC di Greg Berlanti (“Arrow”, “The Flash”) compare tra i produttori esecutivi della serie già rinnovata per la 2° stagione, nonché candidata agli ultimi People’s Choice Awards nella categoria “Favorite New Tv Comedy”. Anche McG, già dietro i successi di “The OC” e “Chuck”, contribuisce alla produzione e alla regia. Imperdibile la 16° puntata, dove Messing si riunisce con il collega Eric McCormack di “Will&Gracesullo stesso set! Prima della Messing, la produzione aveva pensato a Demi Moore e Felicity Huffman per il ruolo della protagonista. Kelly Rutherford, Steve Guttenberg, Melissa Joan Hart e Janel Parrish sfilano da guest-stars. Brian Lowry su “Variety” ha commentato l’avvento della serie con “è come se ‘Colombo’ si fosse messo una parrucca rossa!”.

NEWS - Cogli la prima Mela (a puntate)! Apple si lancia nelle serie tv originali (e film) per contrastare Netflix e Amazon

News tratta da "Uproxx"
If you’re one of those poor, unfortunate souls who loves the current boom in quality television, but is tortured by your inability to consume all of it, things might be about to get better and worse. Variety is reporting that Apple, the billionaire gorilla in the room, has started kicking the tires on original content production, too, possibly in an attempt to compete with your Netflixs and Amazons and Hulus.
The scale of Apple’s ambitions vary depending on whom is asked, but one high-level executive who talked with the company said the goal is to create development and production divisions that would churn out long-form content to stream in a bid to compete with Netflix. Apple is hoping to put a headhunting firm on those hires in the coming months, according to source, with the goal of being in operation next year. Unknown is whether the focus is on TV series, movies — or both.
Also unknown is whether these TV series and/or movies will be sold individually through iTunes, the way third-party content currently is, or if this signals a move toward a monthly subscription service, a la Apple Music. What we DO know for certain is the following things: One, with $200 billion in cash on hand, Apple has the resources to basically do whatever it wants, and competitors could understandably be very nervous today. Two, if Apple is taking pitches for these new projects, I mean, I did just type “Billionaire Gorilla” in that first paragraph…

GOSSIP - Keep tonic and Kerry on! La Washington conquista pure la cover di "Self" (ormai le mancano solo quelle di "Sale e pepe" e "Hustler"...)

Kerry Washington wakes up early. I learn this when her publicist emails to ask if I’d like to do pilates with the actress at 6:30 a.m. before we sit down for our interview. A cursory Google search of Washington suggests I’m in trouble: This is, after all, a woman who moved to India after college and became certified as a yoga instructor. But my fear of pilates-induced humiliation is outweighed by my desire to watch Olivia Pope work out.
Washington, 38, arrives in sweats, with no makeup and no entourage, looking infinitely more relaxed than the character she plays on television. She’s a new mother with a hit show, but her face betrays none of the stress that must entail. Instead, her skin glows, her smile is bright, her eyes somehow managing to convey warmth, strength and vulnerability all at once.
“Hi, I’m Kerry,” she says, extending her hand to meet mine. We are on the Scandal set in Hollywood, standing in a dressing room that has been converted into a small gym for the actress. The space houses a pilates machine, blocks, resistance bands and a smattering of free weights. Washington’s trainer, Julie Turner, arrives, and they begin a quick exchange about the day’s workout; their shorthand has been honed by two to six pilates sessions a week for the past five years.
Though she and the other Scandal actresses have made regular hikes around Los Angeles a group ritual, pilates is Washington’s anchor. “There are a lot of forms of exercise where you have to leave yourself out of the room while you force yourself to do this thing,” she explains. “With pilates, I get to bring my true self. I cry, I laugh. I get to go: Where is my body today? What do I need today? How can I take care of myself and push myself past my comfort zone? How can I be both loving and challenging?”

NEWS - Rivoluzione, compagni! Nielsen si aggiorna - al contrario dell'Auditel di casa nostra - e monitora Netflix, Hulu e Amazon per sesso e età di pubblico

News tratta da "Uproxx"
Let’s be real: With the increasing prices of cable packages, many television viewers are cutting the cord and getting their content primarily from streaming services. Sure, they have to deal with spoilers, but that is a relatively small price to pay for fewer commercials and the ability to watch when they want. However, one downside to this has been the fact that Nielsen ratings haven’t taken streaming numbers into account when rating shows, so, even though you watched Happy Endings faithfully on Hulu, it didn’t matter.
Well, it seems that Nielsen is FINALLY updating their system and will take Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime into account when ascribing a rating to a television show. According to the A.V. Club, not only will the company be tracking more than 1,000 shows’ streaming numbers, they will also be providing analytic breakdowns of the ages and genders of viewers, as well. The system isn’t perfect, however: They will not be taking international numbers into account, nor will it register views from mobile devices. In other words, if you’re streaming from your phone to your Chromecast, you aren’t doing your part.
While there are flaws in these improvements, this is still great news. Netflix original content like House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, and Daredevil are bound to benefit, as well as shows like The Mindy Project that struggled to find a traditional audience before moving to Hulu.
