Why Carrie Brownstein Wants Another Season of ‘Portlandia,’ Too

Why Carrie Brownstein Wants Another Season of ‘Portlandia,’ Too
A version of this story on Carrie Brownstein first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

The sketch-comedy series “Portlandia” began with a series of comedy shorts made by actor-comedian Fred Armisen and musician Carrie Brownstein, one of the leaders of the pioneering all-female indie band Sleater-Kinney.

Over eight seasons that ended in March, the show turned into an Emmy favorite, landing its first nomination in 2011 and picking up Outstanding Variety Sketch Series nominations the last four years in a row.

Over the years, Brownstein directed four episodes, receiving her first directing nomination this year for the season opener, “Riot Spray.” In that episode, a former punk band reunites and finds that youthful anger has given way to more mundane middle-aged concerns.

‘Will & Grace’: Debra Messing Talks David Schwimmer’s Guest Role
Don’t expect to see Ross Geller on “Will & Grace.”

Debra Messing assures us that David Schwimmer’s character on the upcoming 10th season of “Will & Grace” is nothing like his iconic “Friends” persona.

“He’s as far away from Ross as he can possibly get because he’s already mastered Ross,” Messing told Variety on Saturday night in Los Angeles at Project Angel Food’s Angel Awards, where she was honored with this year’s Founder’s Award. “I think people will be excited to see him in our world playing a different part.”

Bruce Campbell Believes Evil Dead Has a Future Without Ash

Bruce Campbell Believes Evil Dead Has a Future Without Ash
Actor Bruce Campbell has become synonymous with Ash Williams, the Deadite-slaying star of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead franchise; it's a fact Campbell himself jokingly bemoaned in 2007's meta horror-comedy My Name is Bruce. Still, after 3 feature films and 3 seasons of Starz's now-cancelled Ash vs Evil Dead, Campbell broke legions of horror fans' hearts by stating emphatically that he's retired from the franchise. While it was recently announced that Ash, along with his team of "Ghost Beaters" from the TV series, will regroup digitally in an upcoming Evil Dead-themed video game, the actor still believes there's a chance for more films and/or TV shows-just not with him.

So, what exactly does Campbell have in mind for a potential Evil Dead franchise reboot? Here's what he told ComicBook.com:

"You have Ash's daughter, Brandy [played by Arielle Carver-o'Neill]. She provides the lineage. Ray [Santiago] is a shaman now, you know as Pablo,

Magicians Stars Tease Bloody Season 4, the Monster's Evil... Tickle Plot?

Magicians Stars Tease Bloody Season 4, the Monster's Evil... Tickle Plot?
The Magicians is upping the gore quotient considerably in Season 4: “I spend 50 percent of the time covered in blood,” star Jason Ralph told Kimberly Roots during a visit to TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con suite.

Ralph didn’t spill who or what is responsible for his character Quentin’s bloody state, but the actor did tease the nefarious intentions of the monster who took over Eliot’s body at the close of Season 3. While the baddie can take up residence in anyone, he’ll be spending at least some of his time in more unconventional places.

Emmys 2018 Poll: What Should Win for Outstanding Comedy Series?

The old guard is officially out… and a host of newcomers in the Emmys‘ Outstanding Comedy Series race are eager to take their shot at the big prize.

A whopping eight nominees made the cut this year, and shockingly, none of them has ever won before in this category. (Reigning champ Veep is out of the race due to a long hiatus, and five-time winner Modern Family failed to land a nod for the first time. In fact, the last time a non-Veep/Modern Family comedy won?

Review: Netflix’s ‘The Innocents’

Review: Netflix’s ‘The Innocents’
There may be no feeling more identifiable than those teenage years—the sensation of being out-of-place, clumsily mishandling your nascent adult powers and oftentimes stuck in the wrong skin altogether. This itchy sensation has long been the province of superhero comics and movies—it’s what fuels, say, the long-running “Spider-Man” franchise. And it’s put to clever and evocative use in Netflix’s “The Innocents,” a new series whose lead character (Sorcha Groundsell) has the power to shift between bodies; unlike most superheroes, though, she can barely control her gift and seeks to keep it hidden. Teens, the show’s obvious intended audience,

Asia Argento Report Casts Shadow Over ‘X Factor Italy’ Participation
A report that Asia Argento has paid a former child actor and musician a settlement after an alleged sexual encounter when he was 17 is raising questions about her participation as a judge on “X Factor Italy.”

TV Review: ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’ Starring John Krasinski

A CIA agent made famous by one of America’s best-known spy novelists has been tasked with a very special mission — turning around one of streaming TV’s most massive ships.

The new series “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” predates the planned pivot by new Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, in which the streamer will move from boutique TV to a tentpole-heavy strategy. But it fits neatly within that programming philosophy, and its fate will provide an understanding of whether the site’s reboot can be effective. The Jack Ryan series of books and films is beloved, if aging; if
