Shemar Moore is Ready to Save the Day in ‘S.W.A.T.’

November 1, 2017 Kellie Freeze 0

When Shemar Moore left CBS’ highly successful series Criminal Minds after 11 seasons, fans cried at the loss of popular character Derek Morgan. But Moore explains, “I just got to a place where I felt like I was running out of gas as far as what else to do with Derek.” Now Moore is back on CBS on Thursday as Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, the lead in S.W.A.T., a bold, modern, more eye-popping version of the successful franchise that has already been a ’70s TV series and a 2003 movie blockbuster. “This is a dream job,” Moore marvels. “This is a […]

‘The Girlfriend Experience’ Season 2: Starz’s Bold And Sensual Drama Tackles Two Separate Storylines

October 31, 2017 Lori Acken 0

The Girlfriend Experience, indie filmmakers Amy Seimetz and Lodge Kerrigan’s unflinching examination of the high-end sex trade, was proudly edgy right out of the gate. Produced by Steven Soderbergh, whose 2009 film of the same name inspired the anthology drama, the series prompted a spirited debate about whether it was prurient TV porn or a gutsy, woman-centric examination of sexual power, self-worth and capitalism. And though many of the show’s devoted fans hoped Season 2 would delve further into the dealings of Riley Keough’s student-slash-escort Christine Reade, they’re getting a whole new Experience instead. The 14-episode Season 2 features hourlong […]

The Long Road Home: We’re On Set As Martha Raddatz’s Moving Tale Of Military Sacrifice Comes To National Geographic

October 30, 2017 Lori Acken 0

It’s 1am on a stifling, central Texas June night and a life-or-death battle is being waged in a remote area of the sprawling Fort Hood military base. Fifteen soldiers hunker down in an open-sided tactical vehicle that is no match for their assailants’ firepower. Some fire frantically into the hostile darkness. Others bellow from the pain of fresh wounds. And one, their leader, does his best to mitigate chaos. No, war hasn’t come stateside. Nor is this an elaborate training exercise. Instead, I’m in the midst of a rending, pivotal moment on the set of National Geographic’s event series The […]

Preview: All Your ‘This Is Us’ Questions Answered

September 19, 2017 Kellie Freeze 4

This Is Us Returns: Sept. 26 at 9/8c on NBC Where We Left Off: Jack isn’t dead, but his relationship with Rebecca might be. What To Expect: This Is Us was last year’s breakout smash and introduced the lovably complicated Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and their “Big Three.” “The series is fundamentally about the family dynamic and how our childhood, and our parents, and the bonds that we form with them and our siblings if we have them, fundamentally shape who we are as people,” Moore shares. “The good, the bad, and sort of everything in between.” […]

The Deuce Begins on HBO

What Was Times Square Really Like in 1970? Deuce Gives the Unflinching Details Emmy winner David Simon, who also teamed up with Deuce co-creator George Pelecanos on the acclaimed series The Wire and Treme, calls their newest unflinching drama — which begins Sunday, Sept. 10 at 9/8c — “a critique of market capitalism and the marginalization of the people who labor.” Which, in this case, are the pimps, hookers, bar workers, hamstrung cops and other seeking souls who populated Times Square (“the deuce” is local speak for 42nd Street) in the gritty early ’70s. James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, who […]

‘Chesapeake Shores’: Hallmark’s Breezy Family Drama Returns

August 1, 2017 Kellie Freeze 1

Last summer, fans were charmed by Hallmark Channel’s Chesapeake Shores, an enchanting family drama about a large, complicated — yet loving — family living in an idyllic coastal town. Fans have already been introduced to and fallen in love with the O’Brien clan, whose love of arguing and communal family meals is easily reminiscent of the Bravermans from NBC’s Parenthood or the Walkers from ABC’s Brothers & Sisters. When we last left the O’Brien family, recently divorced daughter Abby (Meghan Ory) had relocated herself and her children to her hometown in search of a simpler life and a stronger connection […]
