  1. Chris Beachum, Managing Editor at Gold Derby has received the first 5 episodes of Hollywood to screen. He had the following to say... <I’ve now finished watching 5 episodes of “Hollywood,” so a couple of more thoughts… Jim Parsons continues to own every scene he is in (and there are a lot of them; certainly no cameo). The 3rd episode is so far his best with the most range. Holland Taylor has an incredible 5th episode (Patti LuPone had more early on but is still powerful).> In their Awards Center they are predicting that he will receive an Emmy Nomination for this role.

  3. From The Hollywood Reporter (Production on YS has been shut down) The fate of scripted television production is very much in flux as the world grapples with the coronavirus. As of late Thursday evening, NBCUniversal has either suspended production or accelerated the season wrap schedules on 35 shows (scripted, unscripted and syndicated) as a precaution. CBS meanwhile, is taking a similar strategy and has done the same with a fair amount of its series. <snip> Warner Bros. Television Group followed suit and issued the strongest statement to date about a studio's response to TV production amid the coronavirus pandemic: "With the rapidly changing events related to COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, Warner Bros. Television Group is halting production on some of our 70+ series and pilots currently filming or about to begin. The health and safety of our employees, casts and crews remains our top priority. During this time, we will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control as well as local officials and public health professionals in each city where our productions are based." Among the programs that are being shut down are Warners' The Bachelorette, Young Sheldon, Supergirl, Batwoman, Claws, All Rise, Lucifer, Queen Sugar and THR hears Pennyworth and The Flight Attendant; at Netflix, this includes hit Stranger Things and Grace and Frankie. <full article in the link>
  4. Kunal has landed a new role... Uma Thurman is to star in a remake of Israeli drama False Flag for AppleTV+. The Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction star will front Suspicion, a high-paced thriller about the kidnapping of the son of a prominent American businesswoman, played by Thurman. Twenty-one year-old Leo’s abduction from a large, upmarket hotel in central New York is captured on video and goes viral. Swiftly, four British citizens staying at the hotel become the prime suspects. But are they guilty of anymore than being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Thurman, whose last TV role was in Netflix supernatural series Chambers, is joined in the series by Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory), Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Georgina Campbell (Black Mirror), Elyes Gabel (Scorpion), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Angel Coulby (Dancing On The Edge).

  7. From Deadline Hollywood Cheyenne Jackson To Star In ‘Call Me Kat’ Fox Comedy Series With Mayim Bialik Cheyenne Jackson has been tapped as the male lead opposite Mayim Bialik in Call Me Kat, Fox’s multi-camera straight-to-series comedy, from The Big Bang Theory alums Bialik and Jim Parsons and Warner Bros. TV. Written by Darlene Hunt based on Miranda Hart’s BBC series Miranda, Call Me Kat centers around Kat (Bialik), a 39-year-old woman who struggles every day against society and her mother Sheila (Swoosie Kurtz) to prove that you CANNOT have everything you want — and still be happy.

    Cute Fact

    They explained Amy's name at Paley Fest a few years ago. The name was decided upon during a writers meeting. She's named Amy because it means "beloved". Chuck Lorre added the middle name Farrah because he liked the way the two names sounded together. They then decided on the last name of Fowler because it's an old English surname (one who catches birds or fowl) and it would match Cooper which is also an old English surname (one who makes barrels or buckets). The name was decided upon before they even hired Mayim.

  12. From Variety Swoosie Kurtz Joins Mayim Bialik Fox Comedy Series Swoosie Kurtz has signed on to the multi-cam comedy “Call Me Kat,” formerly “Carla,” at Fox opposite Mayim Bialik. The project is based on the BBC original “Miranda” created by Miranda Hart and received a series commitment at Fox back in September. It follows Carla (Bialik), a 39-year-old woman who struggles every day against society and her mother (Kurtz) to prove that you cannot have everything you want — and still be happy. Which is why she spent the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a Cat Café in Louisville, KY. Kurtz’s character is named Sheila. Sheila grew up in Louisville and subscribes to very traditional gender roles. She views her daughter Kat’s unmarried status as her own personal failure. A charming narcissist, Sheila has used her sex appeal to date an endless array of men since Kat’s father died. <full article in the link>
