Two pieces of bad news for The Good Wife fans: The Good Wife was not on during its regularly scheduled time, and the show announced during the Super Bowl that this season was to be its last!
Julianna Margulies and her team slipped an intense commercial into Superbowl 50’s programming, confirming that the current seventh season of the Emmy-winning series will be the last, and you can check out the trailer below for what’s in store. Ever since TGW became a one-woman show somewhere in Season Six, it lost the ensemble feel that made it a hit. Still, I’m sure there will be some surprise re-emergences in this final season.
I don’t know if I wholly believe this…BUT I LIKE IT.
According to Cynthia Nixon, AKA Miranda Hobbes, all of the insane and (in my opinion) cartoonish plot lines for the HBO show were inspired by actual events that happened to the show’s writers or people they were close with.
That makes me have pretty much no hope for humanity, but OKAY.
“Even though crazy and outlandish things happen in Sex and the City, fantastical things seemingly, they had a rule in the writer’s room that nothing — they couldn’t put anything in an episode that hadn’t literally happened to someone in the writer’s room or someone that they knew firsthand…The outlandish, physical, sexual things that happened, they really happened. They weren’t just tall tales.”
Woah. if this is true (and I’m not sure it is) TV writers and their friends certainly are FRISKY, aren’t they?
Friends has been off the air for 12 years, which means that this tv event is gonna be pretty epic.
NBC announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena on Wednesday that the two hour special is happening as a special is a tribute to director James Burrows, who also helmed iconic series Taxi, The Bob Newhart Show, and Cheers. Burrows directed the pilot of Friends and 15 episodes of the show, and according to EW just shot his 1,000th episode of television.
I’m pretty impressed that all six original cast members (Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer) are into doing this, but the issue is scheduling. All these actors are pretty much still working, so it’s gonna be like herding rich, rich cats.
The special will air Sunday, Feb. 21. Will you watch!?!
And now, you totally can, any day of the week because Saks Fifth Avenue is collaborating with Fox‘s hit show Empire to bring you some clothes that will hit allll the high notes (see wht I did there?).
The retailer announced that the department store will have themed looks avail in the windows of both the New York and Beverly Hills flagship stores, as well as on their website. And you know the pieces will be FIERCE.
Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, revealed:
“This unprecedented partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue, Alexis Bittar, Cushnie et Ochs, Jimmy Choo and MCM celebrates ‘Empire’s’ mark on the fashion world. The influence ‘Empire’ has had on so many aspects of popular culture proves it has the ingredients to become a stand-alone fashion brand.”
