Off-camera, though, Cibrian is quite an optimist. He shares that this latest summer series feels as if it could last for seasons. Then again, when he was on the doomed The Playboy Club, he also thought that had legs. Cibrian, 45, has reason to be hopeful now. Take Two, from the creator of Castle (which ran for eight seasons), has the same playful vibe, and he’s hoping for that sort of run from the procedural. […]

‘Sharp Objects’ on HBO: We Talk With Gillian Flynn, Amy Adams, Patricia Clarkson, Eliza Scanlen!

Sharp Objects premieres Sunday, July 8 at 9/8c on HBO Ask anyone who grew up in a small town. Change rarely amounts to a lick of good.

And strangers? Well, they’re best welcomed with a healthy dose of suspicion. Particularly if they’re native sons or daughters who turned their back on their roots, then came back unrecognizable. Or if you think they might be a killer. This is the […]
