A weekend TV-programming note: Check out The Hollywood Reporter‘s acclaimed roundtable series Sundays on SundanceTV.
Six scribes — including Kenneth Lonergan, Tom Ford, Pedro Almodovar, Noah Oppenheim, Allison Schroeder and Taylor Sheridan — discuss the death of satire, bringing autobiography into screenplays and how they would write a film about the president-elect: “Let’s hope for all our sakes it is not the tragedy that so many people fear.”
Viewers can watch THR‘s roundtable discussions on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel’s original nonfiction series, Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with THR. Come back to THR.com every Monday after the shows air for the full, uncensored discussions online.
The fifth of seven episodes — the Writer Roundtable — aired Sunday, Feb. 12. Tune in next week for the Documentary Roundtable on Sunday, Feb. 19, at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT on channel 557 on DirecTV and on 126 on Dish nationwide, and at 10 a.m. ET/PT on cable (channel 625 on TWC in L.A., 94 in NYC).
