Jane Lynch, Cyndi Lauper Developing ‘Golden Girls’-Style Comedy for Netflix
Jane Lynch and Cyndi Lauper just wanna have fun. The comedian and the 1980s music icon have joined forces to star in a new comedy project that may be heading to Netflix.

Lynch let it slip backstage at the Creative Arts Emmys that she and Lauper will co-star in a comedy that she described as “kind of a ‘Golden Girls’ for today.”

A quick Internet search revealed that writer and comedian Carol Leifer (“Seinfeld”) is behind the show as well. “It’s official, heading out next with a new half-hour comedy, starring Jane Lynch and Cyndi Lauper,” Leifer wrote on Facebook in July. “A writer’s dream to work with these two legends. Can’t wait to see where we land…”

According to Lynch, it’s Netflix: “I pitched a show to Netflix and they bought it,” she told reporters after winning the Emmy for guest actress in a comedy

Lynch also chose to dedicate her award to all those 1960s female comics who had to put up with needing a gimmick. “You had to make fun of your looks or you couldn’t keep a man,” she said. She included Joan Rivers, Totie Fields and Phyllis Diller in her shout-out to “those gals who blazed a trail.”

Jane Lynch (‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’) jokes her way to Emmy #5 after winning Best Guest Comedy Actress
Jane Lynch (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) has just won her fifth career Emmy Award at Sunday’s Creative Arts ceremony.

Last year, when Lynch was up for Best Guest Comedy Actress for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” first season, she could not overcome Tiffany Haddish’s supernova career trajectory as the “Girls Trip” breakout nailed her hosting spot on “Saturday Night Live.” In fact, “SNL” has had a lock on this category three years running, with Melissa McCarthy taking the prize in 2017 and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler claiming the title in 2016. But the second season of the Amazon Prime comedy provided richer material for Lynch’s Sophie Lennon, a rival old-school stand-up comic who dresses like a frumpy overweight housewife while employing her catch phrase in a Queens accent, “Put that on a plate!”

Primetime Creative Arts Emmys, Day 2: Complete List of Winners
After setting a new record for the most nominations a series has ever received in a single year, “Game of Thrones” dominated the 2019 Primetime Creative Arts Emmys, which were handed out on Sunday evening in downtown Los Angeles.

The final season of the epic HBO series won 10 awards, taking Emmys for casting, music, main-title design, picture editing, sound mixing and sound editing, makeup, costumes, visual effects and stunt coordination — though it was beaten by “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for cinematography, “Chernobyl” for production design and “Star Trek: Discovery” for prosthetic makeup.

“I’m going with Jane Lynch because she lost last year to Tiffany Haddish for her SNL stint,” Susan Wloszczyna says of the “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” actress. Lynch is an Emmy nominee for a second time as a guest comedy actress in the Amazon Prime series.

She also notes that her part as Sophie Lennon, a stand-up comic rival of Rachel Brosnahan’s Midge Maisel, makes a bigger contribution in the show’s second season, adding that Sophie was “crucial in many ways in what happens to Mrs. Maisel.” Also, Lynch’s character is actually two people. “She is pretending to be this hick comedian who makes fun of herself. But then when you see her in real life, she has a whole other role. So, it’s two roles in one.”

Wloszczyna discussed her reasons for picking Lynch, who is not lacking for trophies given that she has won four Primetime Emmys already.

Glee: 5 Relationships Fans Were Behind (& 5 They Rejected)

Glee remains a popular series years after its finale because as fans we find ourselves identifying with the characters in the glee club. We can see our high school selves in these characters because they are all just as lost as we once were. Whether we identify with the overly ambitious Rachel Berry or the top of the pyramid Quinn Fabray, the series proves that there are multiple sides to these archetypal characters and everything is not always what it seems.

One of the greatest elements of the series is the relationships between the characters. Which couples on Glee did fans support? Which did they reject? Read on to find out.

Richard Linklater Developing Another Years Long Epic with Musical Merrily We Roll Along to Be Shot Over the Next 20 Years

Richard Linklater set an unusual precedent when the 2014 film Boyhood came out. It was a film he had worked on for twelve years, telling the story of a boy, his sister, his parents, and the world around him. It was a great movie, and the most interesting part was how he chose to tell the story. Instead of casting multiple people to play each role, or use makeup to age an adult in the film, he simply shot the film over a twelve year period. So when it was all said and done, you watched those characters grow upon the screen. It was really cool. It’s more of a gamble to do a film this way, but I think it’s a pretty cool payoff with the end result. He’s now taking on a project with the same format, but this time, it’s even more ambitious.
