TNT’s “The Alienist” was able to lure an impressive stable of big-screen talent to its small-screen production. The result doesn’t feel like most television.

The “Oscar bump” is a term often used to describe a raise in salary when an actor wins an Academy Award, but history has shown that it’s also the sort of recognition that can bring the right project and the right actor together. You can add a new case study to that list with J.K. Simmons, a supporting...

An Emmy nomination can’t be in the cards for every great TV series; there’s just too much good stuff out there. But if you’re looking to juice up your viewing experience, try adding one or two of these all but hidden programming gems suggested by The Envelope’s writers. And, hey, who knows, maybe...

The thing that leaps out on first meeting the woman who plays the often-dour, sarcastic superhero “Jessica Jones” is that she’s nothing like Jessica Jones.

“We joke about how different I am,” says Krysten Ritter, grinning. “Every once in a while on set, we’ll do a rehearsal — especially when my...

A few days after former spy Sergei Skripal was poisoned in London by nerve toxins associated with Russian intelligence agencies, fictional ex-Russian agent Ivan Krupin died at the hands of a Kremlin operative in TV's "Homeland." And in April on "The Americans," KGB agent "Nadeshda" shot an uncooperative...

TV programming has fallen into a time warp. "Roseanne," "One Day at a Time," "Will & Grace," "Star Trek," "The X-Files," "Twin Peaks." It’s difficult to figure out which decade you’re in.

Every major broadcast network (and other original content providers such as Netflix) has been peering into...

When "The Americans" was first being developed as an FX series, there was one potential hitch in telling a story about a suburban couple in the 1980s who actually were embedded KGB agents: Post-Cold War Russians didn't scare us anymore.

"People were wondering whether Russians were a credible enemy...

It’s the sort of news that might have had fictional TV impresario Quinn King reaching for her walkie-talkie to launch a curse-laced tirade: It was reported earlier this week that “UnReal’’s” upcoming fourth season could be its last.

But Constance Zimmer, who portrays the tough-as-nails reality...

If you didn’t already know Brian Tyree Henry, who plays up-and-coming rapper Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles in FX’s “Atlanta,” 2018 is the year that changes.

In addition to scoring a Tony nomination this year for his role in Kenneth Lonergan’s “Lobby Hero,” in which he portrayed a security guard officer...

After “The Crown’s” second season streamed, in which Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) married a man who wasn’t right for her because her sister, Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), couldn’t allow her to marry the man who was, viewers had to bid farewell to the women who’d assayed the roles so far....

Emmy voters nominated five first-year dramas in 2017 — “The Crown,” “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us,” “Westworld” and the eventual winner, “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

Joining them were “Better Call Saul” and “House of Cards,” two series with new seasons that will arrive too late this year to be Emmy...

"There’s nothing like hearing Steven Soderbergh say, 'There’s a job for you and it's actually for you,'" says Sharon Stone as she settles into a sofa. Dressed in a nubby brown and black pencil skirt, butterscotch top and matching high heels, she's fielding questions about the HBO murder-mystery...

"Stranger Things" stars Winona Ryder and David Harbour delve into their working relationship and why their characters are so deeply connected.

For many actors, filming traumatic scenes is a memorable experience — there’s so much emotion and pain they must tap into to deliver the right take. It can be a dark moment on an otherwise cheery set.

But for DeWanda Wise of “She’s Gotta Have It,” it’s a distressing scene from the Netflix series’...

Jordan Klepper guesses there’s about a 20% overlap between the clueless character he plays on his Comedy Central late-night news satire show “The Opposition” and his real self.

Klepper’s a progressive, doesn’t put any stock in right-wing conspiracy theories, and generally tries to find causes to...

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” took a six-year break between its eighth and ninth seasons. Fans — and its cast members — won’t have to wait so long for another go-around, as “Curb” will soon begin shooting a 10th season.

Cast member J.B. Smoove, who plays Leon, Larry David’s permanent houseguest on the...

"Orphan Black" may be – to the uneducated eye – just "that show about clones."

But during its five-season run on BBC America, "Orphan Black," which began its final episodes just after Emmy eligibility last summer, was actually about much more, focusing on themes of identity and body autonomy led...

Here's a twist: The marvelousness of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is pretty much reserved for the women on the show. Fortunately, three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub, who plays the title character's dad, Abe, and Michael Zegen, who plays her wayward husband, Joel, are delighted to make hay from...

Spring is here, bringing with it a fresh bouquet of television shows.

The latest entries in our annual spotlight on new shows worthy of discussion are fascinating genre hybrids, balancing humor with something darker – at times even deadlier. They tackle loss, obsession and the search for self in...
