The sad passing of Roger Moore earlier this week was, among many other things, a reminder to us both of how recent the breaking down of the barriers between the big screen and the small screen truly is.
The former Saint and James Bond made the leap up but until the last few years many were reluctant to make a commitment to TV. Well, as we discuss today in our TV Talk podcast, just ask Jessica Lange how well that can work out – as the multiple Oscar and Emmy winner looks… Read
Deadline’s TV Talk Podcast Episode #5: FYC Hustle, ‘This Is Us’ Cast, Best Actor Contenders & ‘Breaking Bad’ Surprise

But for our latest TV Talk podcast we decided to step out of the way of breaking news and look instead at the burgeoning (some would say extravagant) For Your Consideration Emmy campaigns as well as contenders in the Best Actor in a Drama Series race.
Last month, Amazon took over the… Read
