Carter Writer: Fran Kranz Director: Fran Kranz Distributor: Bleecker Street Release Date: October 8, 2021 MASS takes place in and around an Episcopal church, but the drama is not in the least concerned with church business, nor is there any discussion of formal religion.

At the outset, we see a pair of church employees, Judy (Breeda Wool) and Anthony (Kagen Albright), preparing a meeting room under the supervision of Kendra (Michelle N. Carter). […]Read On »

In ABC Network’s new half-hour comedy THE REAL O’NEALS, fourteen-year-old Kenny (Noah Galvin) comes out as gay to his very religious mother Eileen (Martha Plimpton) and police officer father Pat (Jay R.

To his shock, Kenny learns his parents are separating, older brother Jimmy (Matt Shively) is obsessed with losing weight for his wrestling team and sister Shannon (Bebe Wood) steals things.

The Chance family on the Greg Garcia-created comedy RAISING HOPE has been through a lot. Jimmy Chance, played by Lucas Neff, started out as a surprised single father of infant daughter Hope after he found out his one-night stand with a serial killer (since executed) had resulted in a child. With Jimmy’s eccentric parents (Garret Dillahunt, Martha Plimpton) and even more eccentric Maw-Maw (Cloris Leachman) also in the household, little Hope has had a far from tranquil time of it. With Jimmy marrying his relatively level-headed sweetheart Sabrina (Shannon Woodward), things might calm down in the hour-long Season 3 finale, […]Read On »

Actor Garret Dillahunt grew up in Washington State. He’s often associated with portraying ominous folks, though he has had his saintly moments on screen – he was even Jesus Christ in THE BOOK OF DANIEL – and has roots on stage and in comedy. With Fox’s freshman Tuesday night half-hour success RAISING HOPE (returning for new episodes tonight), Dillahunt returns to humor. His character Burt Chance is a married man who is nonplused to become a grandfather, especially when living-at-home son Jimmy (Lucas Neff) decides to keep baby Hope after Hope’s serial killer mom is executed. In part one of […]Read On »
