Welcome to the 210th episode of TV’s Top 5, The Hollywood Reporter’s TV podcast.
Every week, hosts Lesley Goldberg (West Coast TV editor) and Daniel Fienberg (chief TV critic) break down the latest TV news with context from the business and critical sides, welcome showrunners, executives and other guests, and provide a critical guide of what to watch (or skip, as the case may be).
Here’s how the episode plays out:
The Duffer brothers, Michelle Yeoh and Star Trek, ABC’s Will Trent, Apple’s scripted cancellations, as well as Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen (yes, really!) lead the week’s top TV industry headlines.
2. No Trial of the Century
THR media and business writer Alex Weprin joins the show to discuss the Fox and Dominion Voting Systems settlement and what’s next.
3. More reboots
It’s time for a sparkle party as Lionsgate is bringing Twilight to TV and Paramount takes another shot at Galaxy Quest.
4. Showrunner Spotlight
Debora Cahn joins us this week for a deep dive into her new Netflix series, The Diplomat. The discussion ranges from how the series wooed The Americans alum Keri Russell back to TV, Cahn’s interest in foreign policy and her work on Homeland and The West Wing, as well as what to make of that finale.
5. Critic’s Corner
As usual, every episode ends with Dan’s thoughts on what to watch (or skip) this weekend. He weighs in on The Diplomat, Mrs. Davis, Dead Ringers and Dear Mama.
