On Monday, I revealed my picks for the 10 best TV shows of 2017. Now it’s time to look at which shows from this year’s freshman class immediately set themselves apart from their peers in the most competitive TV environment ever. In this era of Peak TV, new shows have to grab audiences from the get-go and keep them hooked; if a freshman series spends its entire first season finding itself, it likely won’t be back for a second. Thankfully, each of the shows on this list debuted more or less fully-formed and are already more than holding their own with the best that broadcast, cable and streaming have to offer. One important distinction: I define “new shows” as ongoing series, and not documentaries, other limited series or revivals in which the original cast returns for new episodes, even if years (or decades) have passed. That’s why a couple of 2017 debuts from Monday’s top 10 list, including The Vietnam War and Twin Peaks: The Return, are … [Read more...] about The 10 Best New TV Shows of 2017

There’s an epic battle brewing in Hollywood that could see some of the biggest writers in show biz firing their agents en masse — threatening to muck up production of new TV shows. Shonda Rhimes, Aaron Sorkin, Oliver Stone, Tina Fey, Lena Waithe and Seth MacFarlane are just a few of the big-name writers vowing to part with their agents unless Hollywood’s wheeler-dealers change the way they do business, The Post has learned. The standoff is over changes in economic models that agents have been adopting — hurting writers — according to the powerful writers’ union, The Writers Guild of America. According to the guild, which boasts 15,000 members, compensation for writers has declined a whopping 23 percent from 2014 to 2016 — even as entertainment profits boom. That has the guild — and writers like Fey and Rhimes — threatening to drop their agents by Friday unless changes are made. The showdown could shut down new projects in … [Read more...] about Hollywood writers’ revolt endangers new TV shows

when legendary sitcom producer Norman Lear kicked off the book tour for his 2014 memoir, Even This I Get to Experience, the head of production and development at his company, Act III Productions, had a thought. “I wanted to get him back into TV to show people how relevant he still is,” said Brent Miller, the Act III executive. “It’s something people miss.” The idea to revive one of Lear’s legacy properties — the 1975 CBS sitcom One Day at a Time — was floated, but with one crucial difference, driven by the results of a marketing survey showing that single Latina mothers are a desirable target demographic: This time, it would center on a Latino family. Miller met with Sony Pictures Television, which owns the original series, and, after some finagling, the studio green-lit the project. Sony wanted veteran writer-producer Mike Royce, who had a deal at the studio, to be involved. “Once they gave me the … [Read more...] about After Two Decades Away, Norman Lear Has a New TV Show
