Sneak Peek at Melora Hardin's Directorial Debut, "YOU"

Viewers might know Melora Hardin best from her recurring role as Jan Levinson, the sometimes lover of Michael Scott, on NBC's The Office but Hardin, set to star next in FX pilot Lights Out, has gone behind the camera for her directorial debut.

The film, YOU, is slated to be released on iTunes and Amazon this weekend... just in time for Mother's Day.
Hardin stars in the film alongside Hardin's real-life husband Gildart Jackson, who also wrote the script. YOU also stars Brenda Strong, Allison Mack, Amy Pietz, Don Michael Paul, Joely Fisher, and Kate Flannery.

The trailer and official description of the film can be found below.

"Miranda (Melora Hardin) and Rawdon (Gildart Jackson) bask in the bliss of a perfect family moment as they cuddle in bed with their infant daughter Quincey. When their family dreams are shattered, Rawdon is left to raise Quincey alone, struggling to overcome the loss of his soulmate in the hopes of finding love again."



YOU will be released online on May 8th.

Wow! How cool! I can't wait to see YOU! I love sad movies that make you feel so relaxed and happy in the end. It's so neat that Melora directed a drama after all the comedy we know her for. I'm looking forward to seeing the way she tells that story.

Looks like Melora Hardin has many talents! I think she's a stage performer/singer too? And she was great in The Office.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
