THE BOLD TYPE’s Dan Jeannotte on Jane, Ryan, and why you should tune in!

I like to be surprised when I tune into new shows – show me something I don’t see often, and convince me to come back. When I approached THE BOLD TYPE, I went in expecting a snarky, mean-spirited, step on other women to get to the top kind of look at the goings on at a Cosmo-like magazine (Scarlet); to my delight, the show swerved and presented us with breezy-but-not-daft, optimistic-but-not-unattainable, realistic, fashion-forward, and relevant show with leads you root

PEOPLE OF EARTH at SDCC 2017: Creator David Jenkins on creating and evolving the show

While in San Diego for Comic Con 2017, I had the opportunity to spend some time chatting with the stars and creator of TBS’ PEOPLE OF EARTH, which starts Season 2 with an amazing new episode July 24 at 10:30/9:30PM Central. In addition to spending time talking with the hilarious cast of PEOPLE OF EARTH in San Diego, Jason and I got to pick the brain of the show’s creator, David Jenkins.  We touched on creating and evolving the show,

PEOPLE OF EARTH at SDCC 2017: Oscar Nuñez and Ana Gasteyer on “tragicomedy”

While in San Diego for Comic Con 2017, I had the opportunity to spend some time chatting with the stars and creator of TBS’ PEOPLE OF EARTH, which starts Season 2 with an amazing new episode July 24 at 10:30/9:30PM Central. Ana Gasteyer and Oscar Nuñez have been known over the years for their wildly funny performances on SNL, THE OFFICE, SUBURGATORY, etc. In PEOPLE OF EARTH season 2, while they continue to mine for comedy gold, the emotions of

PEOPLE OF EARTH at SDCC 2017: Nasim Pedrad and Björn Gustafsson preview Season 2

While in San Diego for Comic Con 2017, I had the opportunity to spend some time chatting with the stars and creator of TBS’ PEOPLE OF EARTH, which starts Season 2 with an amazing new episode July 24 at 10:30/9:30PM Central. In the first of four video interviews, new cast member Nasim Pedrad (special agent Alex Foster) and Björn Gustafsson (Don the White) joined me and my camera man Jason to talk about everything (but also nothing) related to the

FARGO’s Olivia Sandoval on Winnie & Gloria, mid-western nice, and an exciting S3 finale

Navigating the “mid-western nice” of FARGO was new territory for Olivia Sandoval, the newcomer who has given life and incredible depth to beat-cop Winnie Lopez over the course of this stellar third season. As the show narrowed in on figuring out the mystery that was front and center, it has given audiences an authentic female friendship that is worth rooting for in Sandoval’s Lopez and Carrie Coon’s phenomenal Gloria Burgle. In a call to preview the finale, Sandoval told me

WRECKED’s Ally Maki on Season 2: Jess, Todd, and The Barracuda

I’ve said it once; I’ll say it a million times – over the last year or so, TBS came out of the gate firing on all cylinders, premiering 5 of the funniest comedies on TV in shows like ANGIE TRIBECA, THE DETOUR, SEARCH PARTY, PEOPLE OF EARTH, and WRECKED, which returns tonight with all new episodes (10/9c with back to back eps for S2). Ally Maki plays Jess Kato, a survivor of a plane crash that stranded a wildly diverse

Previewing TNT’s CLAWS with Evan Daigle

Evan Daigle may not yet be a face you recognize – but the Louisiana native, who only realized in the past few years that his calling was to be an actor, turns in a great debut performance in TNT’s CLAWS. A newcomer working among small screen royalty in Dean Norris and Niecy Nash, Evan told me on a call this week to discuss his show, that “when people ask…what’s your favorite part of the experience, definitely 100% getting the opportunity

Sara Rue Talks Hallmark Channel’s ALL FOR LOVE

ALL FOR LOVE on Hallmark Channel (starring Steve Bacic, Teryl Rothery, and Sara Rue) premieres May 27 at 9/8c.  The movie follows a romance novelist (Rue) paired (by her publisher) with a Navy SEAL (Bacic) to research details for her new book. As she’s reluctantly works with him, she starts to have a change of heart. Cheryl had the chance to chat with Sara Rue about her character (Jo, “passionate about her work and…spending her time focusing on that as opposed to

Jasmin Savoy Brown on relating to THE LEFTOVERS and her upcoming series WILL

Jasmin Savoy Brown should look familiar as she’s steadily been popping in on some of TV’s biggest shows. Small parts on BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, GREY’S ANATOMY, and GRIMM led to a longer stay on Freeform’s STITCHERS. Her most prominent role to date has been the fairly pivotal Evangeline ‘Evie’ Murphy on HBO’s THE LEFTOVERS. The third and final season started in April with (spoilers) the surprising death of her character as the show barrels on to what will likely be an
