My name is Niecy!” Well, that very young Niecy knew what she was talking about, as next month (July 11), the former Reno 911! and current Claws star will be honored with her own star on Hollywood’s famed boulevard.

Series creator Michael Seitzman surprises viewers in Season 3’s second episode (airing May 2) with some full-on singing and dancing. We asked the bossman, Dr. Will Campbell (Boris Kodjoe), to fill us in on what the heck is going on. “When you’re working on a medical drama, the chances of doing a musical, or even just being able to sing or dance or do any of that, are very slim to none,” Kodjoe laughs, giving huge praise to Seitzman for continuously pushing […]

TV’s Best New Pairing: Bill Hader and Henry Winkler In “Barry”

You don’t expect it, and you won’t be able to help it, but you’re going to fall in love with Barry. The socially awkward ex-Marine turned hitman is having a midlife crisis of sorts in HBO’s endearingly dark comedy Barry (Sundays beginning March 25). You see, Barry’s really good at killing people. He’s actually legendary in the unusual criminal underworld he works in, but he’s a lonely guy. Things start to look up for Barry when he accidentally stumbles into an acting class where he finds acceptance from a close-knit, albeit eccentric, L.A. theater group. And from there the fun […]

NBC’s New “Rise” Pits Football Against Theater

Fans of Parenthood and Friday Night Lights will appreciate producer and showrunner Jason Katims applying what he does best — creating heartfelt family-fueled dramas — to his latest project Rise (Tuesdays at 10/9c). With hints of FNL, Smash and Glee (Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller is also involved), Katims introduces us to a working-class town where football rules and the theater program is simply an afterthought, if a thought at all.

Adults Pose as Students in Revealing Docuseries Undercover High

The team that brought us the prison-life docuseries 60 Days In (Lucky 8 TV) turns its cameras on the challenges of high-school students in A&E’s new social experiment Undercover High. Seven young adults ranging in age from 21 to 26 go undercover as high-school students for one semester in this 11-episode docuseries. “While the shows have that similar DNA, they’re very different,” executive producer Gregory Henry stresses. “It’s not like, ‘Can you survive high school?’ That’s not the intent here. It really is, how do you pierce that teen veil, that teen bubble, because it’s become so difficult for adults […]
