The first responder drama 9-1-1 begins its third season Monday nights on Fox with most of its characters in a good place. Angela Bassett’s LAPD Sergeant Athena Grant married her fire captain beau Bobby Nash (Peter Krause) at the end of Season 2, with her two teen children from her first marriage in attendance. 9-1-1 being a show about people in crisis, everybody’s cheerful mood may not make it through the first episode. However, Bassett’s positive attitude seems likely to last much longer. Also an executive producer on 9-1-1, Bassett (who was an Oscar nominee for her portrayal of Tina […]Read On »

Michael has just come out relatively late in life as gay and is in a […]Read On »

FX Network’s THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON: AMERICAN CRIME STORY, Tuesdays at 10 PM, is a ten-episode drama about the famous ’90s court case that had racism, sexism, celebrity and courtroom game-playing on full public view.

Whatever Cochran privately thought about Simpson’s innocence or guilt, he saw the case as an opportunity to spotlight police abuse of African-Americans. Cochran is portrayed in the miniseries by Courtney B. Vance. Vance, a veteran of stage (Tony winner […]Read On »
