Created by Aaron Sorkin, THE NEWSROOM is set at a fictional cable news network, but the stories it deals with – theLouisiana oil spill, the killing of Osama bin Laden – are real.

Writer/director/producer Armando Iannucci loves political comedy. The Glasgow-born hyphenate is also known for non-political comedy, including several series of ALAN PARTRIDGE shows starring Steve Coogan as an inept talk show host. However, a lot of viewers know Iannucci’s work from THE THICK OF IT, his satire of the British corridors of power, currently airing on BBC America. IN THE LOOP, the film based on THE THICK OF IT that Iannucci directed and co-wrote, was nominated for an adapted screenplay Oscar. Now Iannucci has come to HBO with the half-hour comedy VEEP, which airs Sunday nights on the premium cable network. […]Read On »

AMC’s series MAD MEN, now in its fifth season Sundays at 9 PM, has some things in common with its character Peggy Olson, played by Elisabeth Moss. When MAD MEN, created by Matthew Weiner, began its run in 2007, no one knew that it would turn out to be an award-winning juggernaut. Likewise, when Moss’ Peggy joined the Madison Avenue advertising firm then known as Sterling-Cooper in 1960, no one foresaw that she would become the company’s first female copywriter and one of the strongest people there. Moss has been nominated for the Supporting Actress in a Drama Series three […]Read On »

In THE AVENGERS, most of the title characters – Robert Downey, Jr’s Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers/Captain America and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/Hulk – have superpowers, while Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton/Hawkeye have extraordinary fighting skills. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury has Samuel Jackson’s awesome glower to keep the Avengers in line, but anyone watching THE AVENGERS or most of its predecessors – the two IRON MAN films and THOR – knows that the glue holding everything together is loyal, tenacious and calm Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg. Gregg, […]Read On »
