‘Killing Eve’ Season 4: ‘Sex Education’ Alum Laura Neal Named Spy Drama’s Fourth Head Writer
Continuing its tradition of naming a new head writer each season, BBC America’s “Killing Eve” has tapped Laura Neal to head Season 4. She succeeds Suzanne Heathcote, Emerald Fennell and series creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Neal, whose previous writing credits include “Sex Education” and “Secret Diary of a Call Girl,” will serve as writer and executive producer on the fourth season of the spy drama, which was picked up last month. Season 4 will go into production later this year.

Killing Eve smashes television tropes in every way, both on the screen and behind it,” said Sarah Barnett, President, AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. “We have a remarkable squad of ferociously smart women writers passing the baton to each other on this show, aligned around a coherent vision but bringing it to life with their own specific sparkle and brilliance. Laura Neal is the latest incredible leader of the pack on Killing Eve.

Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, Diane Keaton Comedy Pitch ‘Family Jewels’ Acquired by New Republic Pictures
New Republic Pictures has won the auction for “Family Jewels,” a comedy pitch starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton, who have not appeared on screen together since 1996’s “The First Wives Club.”

Peter Hoare is writing the screenplay, while New Republic principals Brian Oliver and Bradley Fischer are producing alongside Alan Nevins. Tracey Nyberg is executive producing. Fischer and Nevins packaged the project and brought in Hoare with Nyberg.

The film, which is eyeing a 2020 production start, is a multigenerational family comedy in which Hawn, Midler and Keaton are forced to spend the Christmas holidays together along with their kids and grandkids — after the man they were all once married to suddenly dies in a department store.

Delroy Lindo Leaving ‘The Good Fight’ As Series Regular, In Talks To Headline ABC Pilot ‘Harlem’s Kitchen’
Exclusive: The Good Fight co-star Delroy Lindo is in negotiations to headline Harlem’s Kitchen, ABC’s Harlem family restaurant drama pilot from writer Zahir McGhee, Mandeville Television and ABC Studios. As a result, he will be leaving the CBS All Access legal drama The Good Fight as a series regular after the upcoming fourth season, which debuts April 9.

Lindo’s contract for The good Wife spinoff The Good Fight, where he plays Adrian Boseman, a name partner at Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart, is up after Season 4. According to sources, he was offered a new deal to stay and may have taken it as he loves being on the show but Harlem’s Kitchen came along, a project he became passionate about. I hear the possibility of him doing both series was explored but the potential production overlap was too great to overcome. However, The Goof Fight creators/showrunners Robert and Michelle King are leaving the door open,

‘Hollywood’ Premiere Date: Ryan Murphy’s Netflix Limited Series About Postwar Tinseltown
Netflix is going Hollywood in the spring. The streamer has set a May 1 launch date for its limited series from Ryan Murphy that follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown — no matter the cost. Check out the new key art below.

Murphy, Ian Brennan and Janet Mock wrote the project, in which each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood’s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day. The seven-episode series exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.

A Million Little Things Recap: Boy, Bye

I’ve written about television for too long to ignore the fact that it doesn’t matter if you’re a fictional couple, potential couple or pair of random characters who have exchanged even the most fleeting of glances: Someone, somewhere is ‘shipping it.

So to the Danny/Elliot (Deliot? Elanny?) fandom out there? My condolences. This week’s A Million Little Things is like your Buffy Season 2 finale. Only you’re too young to remember that reference, I hope. I sincerely hope.

Grey's Recap: Grin and 'Bear' It — Plus, Which Twosomes Called It Quits?
Grey’s Anatomy’s Maggie was right all along: Camping is a bad idea. In Thursday’s episode, Jackson and Jo had occasion to work on a couple of patients who were mauled by a bear and rescued when Station 19’s firefighters went overnighting in the woods. And, in perilous situations that drew at least a little less blood, DeLuca was put (way!) out when Meredith took over Suzanne’s perplexing case, and as you were forewarned, Levi learned that Nico didn’t want his parents to meet his boyfriend. Perhaps not surprisingly, by the end of the hour, two couples

Legacies Star Reflects on Landon's Journey From Sidekick to Hero: 'The Most Surprising Thing Has Been...'
Of the many storylines currently being juggled by The CW’s Legacies, one of the most surprising has been Landon’s rise from emo townie to full-blown phoenix. And last week’s episode took that journey to the next level, with Landon unlocking an impressive new ability (fire wings!) and embracing his heroic potential.

“He doesn’t really know what defines a hero and what defines a sidekick, so he’s sort of throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks,” Aria Shahghasemi told TVLine and other outlets during a recent visit to the show’s set. “He’s

Did a Brooklyn Nine-Nine officer just break bad? That seems to be the case, based on the tag scene at the end of Thursday’s episode.

Throughout the second Jimmy Jab Games, Charles tried to boost the confidence of Vanessa Bayer’s Debbie Fogle. “You can do anything that you put your mind to,” he told her, before forfeiting his baton and the title of “Greatest Showman” to Holt’s partner in crime-fighting. Fogle took Charles’ words to heart, then put her new, can-do attitude to work in unexpected fashion.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’: Dave Filoni Discusses the Final Eps and George Lucas’s Ongoing Mentorship

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’: Dave Filoni Discusses the Final Eps and George Lucas’s Ongoing Mentorship
A long time ago in a galaxy where Disney didn’t have its own streaming service, the future of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” seemed bleak. The fan-favorite animated series, which centers on the conflict that helped shape much of the franchise’s mythology, was effectively canceled when Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney in 2013. Though a sixth season eventually made its way to Netflix, the series was axed before several of its key story arcs were resolved, throwing future tales of spunky Jedi Ahsoka Tano, clone troopers Rex and Cody, and the series’ myriad of other characters into doubt (though Ahsoka and Rex would appear at a later point in their lives in the series “Star Wars: Rebels.”)

It took six years, but longtime fans will finally get their long-awaited sendoff when the seventh and final season of “The Clone Wars” kicks off on Disney+ on Friday, February 21. IndieWire recently

Netflix and the Sweet Release of Garbage TV — TV Podcast

Netflix and the Sweet Release of Garbage TV — TV Podcast
For all intents and purposes, we’re currently stuck in the content desert of the annual TV cycle. Too early for most heavy-duty Emmy contenders to premiere, too late for the end-of-the-year release rush to qualify for the guild and Golden Globe awards.

That’s not to say that quality programming is entirely absent from the queue — with Amazon’s “Hunters” dropping February 21 and FX on Hulu’s “Devs” premiering March 5 — but for the most part, the current TV vibe is to lay low, play catch-up, watch screeners, and prepare for the onslaught that is the final quarter of the Emmy eligibility calendar.

Of course, if the thought of trying to clean out your DVR is too daunting or you just can’t bring yourself to sit down and engage with the brilliant, but excruciating, historical horror of series including “Chernobyl” or “When They See Us,” it’s only natural

‘Star Trek: Picard’ Review: Seven of Nine Avenges a Beloved ‘Voyager’ Friend’s Tragic Fate

‘Star Trek: Picard’ Review: Seven of Nine Avenges a Beloved ‘Voyager’ Friend’s Tragic Fate
Oh Dr. Jurati, how well hidden you were!

It’s a testament to the skill of the “Star Trek: Picard” team how little we saw this twist coming — even, though, with hindsight it was totally set up. And particularly well set up in this episode, “Stardust City Rag,” thanks to its writer, Kirsten Beyer (look for an interview with her at IndieWire tomorrow), a longtime “Trek” vet who cut her teeth on a series of “Star Trek: Voyager” novels before working as a staff writer on “Discovery” and co-executive producer on “Picard.”

That Agnes Jurati was a spy planted by Starfleet Intelligence’s Commodore Oh makes total sense. The last we saw Oh she was talking to Agnes on Okinawi and wanting to know all about why Picard had taken such an interest in her. That scene ended quickly, and next thing we know Agnes shows up at Chateau Picard
