‘Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce’: Cast Members Talk the Sexy Bravo Series’ Goodbye Season

In 2014, Buffy the Vampire Slayer producer/scribe Marti Noxon introduced audiences to a group of women unlike any we’d seen before on TV. Ladies with oft-wobbly careers, rubbled relationships, an ironclad friendship and hopeful hearts wrapped by turns in whipped cream and barbed wire. Ladies who weren’t shy about effing up or letting their angst fly. And so, anchored by Lisa Edelstein’s struggling self-help author Abby McCarthy, the titular girlfriends of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce let the rest of us frazzled females grab a glass and commiserate, even as we coveted their fab digs, wardrobes and ability to cry pretty.

Costner plays widower John Dutton, proprietor of the modern-day Yellowstone Dutton Ranch, his family’s Rhode Island-sized Montana sprawl of big business, modern technology and Wild West skill sets.

But what is it really like to be part of one? To have your forebears and family name be inescapable reminders of all you must live up to? Or try to live down? HBO’s stellar, slyly funny new family dynasty drama Succession — from comedy veterans Adam McKay (Saturday Night Live) and Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop) — examines the inner workings of the fictional Roy family, proprietors of […]

7 Questions With … Jodie Comer of BBC America’s “Killing Eve”

‘The Tale’: Jennifer Fox On Bringing Her Sundance-Lauded Story of Abuse and Resilience to HBO

For more than three decades, filmmaker Jennifer Fox thought she was the luckiest. That, as a smart, independent 13-year-old in the freewheeling ’70s, it was pure sophistication that her first “boyfriend” — the fellow who took her virginity — was an older man who found her beautiful and exceptionally talented. Still prepubescent, Fox memorialized the “relationship” in “The Tale,” an English-class assignment about the man, their introduction via an elegant riding instructor she called Mrs. G and the trio’s “magical” summer spent defying the conventions of love and freedom. Still, the girl told everyone it was a work of fiction. […]
