"Game of Thrones" creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have another HBO gig on tap, the premium channel announced Wednesday.
Never mind the King of the North — this drama series will center on what's going on in an alternate-reality American South.
"Confederate," which will begin filming after the final season of "GoT" wraps, is about civil wars, but not the Civil War. Set in a reality where the Confederacy seceded successfully and turned into a modern nation with legal, institutionalized slavery, the series will feature what looks to be a sprawling cast of characters who operate on either side of the "Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone."
Roberts is set to headline "Homecoming," a series based on the fictional podcast of the same name, which centers around a group of individuals working at a secret government facility.
Amazon confirmed to The Times the acquisition of the half-hour drama, directed and executive produced by "Mr. Robot" creator Sam Esmail, with a two-season, straight-to-series order. Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, writers of the podcast, will also serve as writers on the series.
With a stacked lineup featuring Bjork, Frank Ocean, Missy Elliott, Solange and Nine Inch Nails, this year’s FYF Fest looks to be a can’t-miss entry in the summer festival season.
To soothe the widespread case of FOMO for those unable to get a ticket to the Goldenvoice-produced event, organizers will offer a livestream of the weekend’s action for the first time.
Two of the three days of this year’s expanded festival will be streamed exclusively on Twitter, making it the first U.S. festival to be broadcast on the social platform, organizers announced Wednesday morning.
The stream will be active from 6 p.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday, meaning folks can catch sets from acts like A Tribe Called Quest, MGMT, Iggy Pop and Run The Jewels.
Fleetwood Mac will be feted next year as the Recording Academy’s 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year, an honor that will be extended to the veteran group in conjunction with the 60th Grammy Awards ceremony.
Fleetwood Mac is the first group to be recognized at the annual event that singles out musicians both for their artistry and their philanthropic contributions. Previous honorees include Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, Bonnie Raitt, Quincy Jones, Luciano Pavarotti and Stevie Wonder.
The Person of the Year dinner is a fundraiser that generates support for MusiCares programs assisting musicians in need of housing, transportation, instrument or equipment issues, medical treatment, food and other services.
Caitlyn Jenner is calling out late-night TV hosts for their "jokes" about her gender identity.
Although the 67-year-old reality star made her first-ever "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" appearance on Tuesday night, Kimmel has been cracking jokes at her expense for years.
Long before Jenner publicly announced her gender transition in 2015, the topic of Bruce Jenner's decidedly "feminine" cosmetic preferences (i.e., plastic surgery, hairstyle, etc.) were punch lines to many a late-night one-liner.
The BBC is funneling loads of taxpayer dollars into the pockets of its highest-paid stars -- its white male stars, to be exact.
Under the terms of its new charter, the U.K. public broadcast powerhouse was compelled to release the names and salaries of its top-line earners, unearthing an international controversy about its glaring wage gaps.
The salary report reveals that 96 of the BBC's leading on-air personalities earn at least $195,000 every year. And radio host Chris Evans, the broadcast network's chief earner, takes home more than $2.9 million -- about 20 times the salary of the U.K. prime minister.
Blac Chyna is happy to put Rob Kardashian in her rearview mirror after he posted naked pictures of her online in a profane, ill-conceived rant — but not before she does a sit-down interview about how she’s putting him in said rearview.
“I’m glad I’m relieved of [Rob], but damn, why did I have to get relief in this way?” she told People.
Moving forward, she said, she’s all about being happy, so that King Cairo, her son with Tyga, and Dream, her daughter with Kardashian, can be happy as well.
Fans of director Guillermo del Toro have learned to expect the unexpected. Over the course of his career, the filmmaker has put his unique stamp on everything from vampires ("Cronos") to superheroes ("Hellboy") to giant robots ("Pacific Rim") to gothic horror ("Crimson Peak").
The just-released first trailer for del Toro's latest film, "The Shape of Water," finds him back in the realm of dark, unsettling fairy tales, a la his 2006 film, "Pan's Labyrinth" — this time with a suitably twisted romantic spin.
Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the film centers on a mute janitor (Sally Hawkins) at a top-secret government laboratory who develops a relationship with an aquatic humanoid creature (Doug Jones) — the last of his species — who is being held in a tank and subjected to experiments.
That was the 29-year-old singer's story during a weepy interview Tuesday with "Entertainment Tonight." Following his recent DUI arrest outside an AutoZone in rural Georgia, Carter wanted to set the record straight about his rumored substance abuse issues.
"I do not drink," he insisted, explaining that a longstanding medical condition prevents him from doing so. "Hire a polygraph person, a professional. Strap me up."
The news from Washington was the death of the Republican healthcare bill, and it was duly noted around the late-night dial.
On NBC's "Late Night," host Seth Meyers said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had announced that the new Republican strategy was to repeal and not replace the Affordable Care Act, "the same way we got rid of Obama without a good plan to replace him."
Jimmy Fallon, on "The Tonight Show," had more or less the same joke from a different angle: "Republicans said that they're just going to let Obamacare fail while they regroup and figure out a new plan and Democrats said, 'Hey, that's the same thing we're doing with Trump.'"
