  • What Hollywood moguls don’t do for Israel

    By Danielle Berrin

    March 27, 2014 | 11:00 am

    I sometimes feel wistfully nostalgic for a Hollywood that no longer exists. I can’t pinpoint when it existed, or even describe it exactly — to define it would diminish it — but I can tell you that it flourished during a “golden age,” a classic era, and that it was impossibly dreamy...

    September 24, 2013 | 5:52 pm

    So the Emmys were on Sunday, and with it no shortage of Neiling, Breaking and flopped attempts at Modernizing. Not least of which was characterized by the slap-happy host jabbing “our younger audience” by clarifying that television is “the thing you watch on your phones.” Cute?...

  • Turn yourself in to ‘Orange Is the New Black’

    By Melissa Weller

    July 16, 2013 | 1:22 pm

    Orange Is the New Black, adapted from the 2011 memoir of the same name, is, in a word, perfect. Perfect pacing, perfectly scripted, perfectly performed. A voluntary incarceration to the couch proved a fine way to spend the weekend, and many who participated in this latest Netflix...

  • What I Watched This Weekend: Camp, Orange is the New Black

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 15, 2013 | 9:08 am

    Summer is my favorite season, I think, which is a funny thing to say because the reason I love it so much is that it's all about escape. Kids go to camp and adults takes weeks seaside, lakeside, poolside, slipping out of whatever unbearable city we're inhabiting to be somewhere...

    May 14, 2013 | 11:46 am

    In less than two weeks the fourth season of “Arrested Development” premieres on Netflix. It’s been seven very long years since the last episode, but if this trailer is any indication, the Bluth family is still the most delightfully dysfunctional Jewish family to ever be portrayed...

    By Michael Welch

    I was watching a movie on Netflix (no Nyquil), and noticed that the premise of the movie had seemed foreign to me. 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered to be the greatest sushi chef in the world, paints and establishes perfection with his creation of sushi. What...

    It was the first day of spring, and Jeffrey Tambor was sitting in his car in the snow near his New York home, conducting an interview while his 6-year-old daughter — one of his four children, ages 3 to 8, including twin toddlers — was taking her piano lesson. “Daddy is tired,...

    Barcelona Media, an interdisciplinary center of research and innovation, hosted the Norman Lear USC Annenberg Center director Marty Kaplan to speak at its 10th anniversary celebration on March 6, 2012.

  • Jenji Kohan: Smoking the Stereotypes

    By Danielle Berrin

    May 20, 2009 | 10:03 am

    Unlike most Hollywood writers, Jenji Kohan got her creative education at the family dinner table, where there was a subtle, but largely predetermined, genetic imperative to write. On any given night, those present included her Emmy-winning writer father, her acclaimed novelist...
