Interview: 'The Night Shift' stars Jill Flint and Brendan Fehr

The season finale of NBC's medical drama "The Night Shift" airs tonight on NBC.  The episode entitled “Resurgence,” a campus shooting puts the night shift in harm's way. The incident sends TC (Eoin Macken), Jordan (Jill Flint), Drew (Brendan Fehr) and Amira (guest star Rana Roy) into the field, where they assist Rick (guest star Luke Macfarlane) with a deadly situation.

Meanwhile, Scott (Scott Wolf) implements a new training program and locks horns with Julian (guest star James McDaniel). Drew (Brendan Fehr) struggles with frustrations about going to Army Ranger School while Shannon (Tanaya Beatty) and TC both contemplate their future at San Antonio Memorial.  

TVMusic Network had the chance to chat with actors Brendan Fehr and Jill Flint where the pair hinted at what would be ahead for their characters as Season Four comes to a dramatic close and they also chat about working on the medical show.

Here are some highlights below:

On how Drew's decision to enter Army Ranger school will affect his family and where the characters are at the end of the episode:

"We don’t wrap it up and put a bow on it," explains Fehr. "...But Drew and Rick do have a conversation about it and we do move forward from there. There are still questions regarding how all of that’s going to turn out."

"By the end of this episode, you see everyone in a new direction," Flint adds. "I think there are a few things that will happen — I don’t want to say it’s warm and fuzzy, but I think it’s a beautiful ending. I think the fans will be happy."

"Throughout the show, I think all of the characters have come into their own. I think by the end of this everyone is going to take an additional step towards doing or becoming something [they want]," Fehr said. "Taking on something that’s been weighing on their mind. You see a lot of characters taking chances that they’ve probably been thinking about for a long time. I don’t know how those pan out — they’re up in the air — but I think you see some steps forward."

On working with the real live military consultants on the set. 

"I think for me it was a real honor," Fehr shares.  "You know for four seasons we have been pushing the military aspect.  We thought that that’s what made our show a little different than others.  We thought that is what could make our show a little better than others. It is something that we really enjoyed doing and you know we are always – you know we were honoring our military men and women through that.  But it was finally to be able to get the opportunity to do that in a much more direct way or in kind of a much more obvious way was a great honor.  And it was something that you know we all took a lot of pride in being able to do.  Because you could sit there and you could talk the talk and you can put on the – or they are real uniforms."

'The Mindy Project': step inside Mindy's closet with Paley Center's Costume Exhibit

August 29, 2017
(L-R): Mindy Kahling and Salvador Perez
No one does fashion better these days than "The Mindy Project" which is set to debut its final season on Hulu.

On television, the well-dressed successful career woman had always been the character to watch. Like "Sex and the City's" Carrie Bradshaw to "Black-ish's" Zoe Johnson and "Scandal's" Olivia Pope, the clothes have become another character on the show.

The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills is allowing visitors to walk inside Mindy Lahiri's closet with their latest exhibit, “The Mindy Project: Six Seasons of Style" Curated by Costume Designer Salvador Perez. From now through October 1, the center will have on display 40 costumes, photography and sketches representing six seasons of fabulous color, print, and sparkle. 

For Perez, working with Kahling for the past six seasons has been easy. "The first thing I designed for her was the print with the plaid skirt and yellow sweater and Mindy lit up," Perez said a preview reception for the exhibit. And she said 'I love this, all that's going on.' I said "you do? It's normally too much' and I realized we were kindred spirits. It took from that to this explosion of color, print, and sparkle. There's always sparkle because as Mindy and I's favorite quote line is 'Sparkle makes everything better.'"

The duo has been through a lot together as they dressed Mindy including. The show has produced more than 4000 outfits over the six seasons. One of the most challenging has been the pregnancy pad the character wore in Season Three which Perez admits that Kahling hated wearing. It was a fight to get her just to wear it the Emmy-winning designer said.  ‘This isn’t my idea, you wrote the script,'" he said.

It's easier dressing Kahling's real life pregnancy the designer said. 

"So far, so good. She doesn’t show yet," Perez said. "We have another four weeks of shooting and I’m hoping to get away with it. I’m buying lots of stretch."

When it comes to why the show is such a hit in its fashion looks, Perez likes it to Mindy being the average woman. 

"Mindy is not the average actress size and she always looks impeccable, " Perez said. "I think that it shows regular size girls all over America that you can have fun with fashion no matter you wear. She really pushes fashion and makes sure the show always looks great and everything is a great fit. We have taken away all those norms - like what a doctor would wear to their office. What doctor would have this collection of handbags? She's really sort of made fashion fun and wearable and another character on the show."

As for what will happen to the clothes once the show leaves the air? "First Mindy will pick what she wants first," Perez said. "Most of them will go to the archives and the rest will be auctioned off. Some of them will go to NBC and you'll see a coat on an extra on some other NBC show. 

Catch up on "The Mindy Project" streaming on Hulu.

 Saturday August 26th marked the 20th annual Fedorin Cup hosted by Rick Hutchinson at Anaheim Ice in Anaheim, CA.

The Fedorin cup game was started in 1998 to raise money to support local hockey player Eric Fedorin who was battling a brain tumor. Though Eric Fedorin ultimately lost his battle with cancer, his friends and hockey legends continue to fight the fight for him and many others.

 In the annual "Fedorin Cup" game- past and present players come together in the name of charity. For many, this is the only place they will get to see their favorite retired player play against their current NHL favorites. In a Canada Vs USA format, this year it was Team USA that came away with the win after an over time shootout made the final score 14-13.

The day started with an outdoor party where fans could purchase merchandise and play games to win hockey prizes. Once the game started it was all in good fun as the players teased and joked with each other. Where else can you see Teemu Selanne check his own son to the ice?

In between periods the players are more than willing to sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans.

The night concluded with a dinner catered by Selanne Steak House and a silent auction, raffle and casino games.

This year's game included such names as: Getzlaf, Selanne, Cogliano,Pronger, Lemiuex, Kerdiles, Merchant, Allen and many more.

'Black-ish' creator Kenya Barris wants to win The Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy

When the award for Outstanding Comedy Series is announced at next month's Primetime Emmy Awards, the team behind the ABC's hit sitcom "Black-ish" hope that the Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross led comedy gets its due.

The comedy about a well-to-do Black family living in the suburbs is nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for the second year in a row. 

The show faces stiff competition in "Modern Family," "Veep," "Master of None," "Atlanta," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Silicon Valley." "Black-ish" is one of the few that are on network television, something that Barris is campaigning for. Only "Modern Family" is on ABC as is "Black-ish." "Atlanta" is on FX, "Kimmy Schmidt" and Master of None" stream on Netflix while "Silicon Valley" and "Veep" are on HBO. 

“We want an Emmy,” Kenya Barris told reporters during a recent press event. “I always take the backseat, because I think that’s the higher road to take, but I’m going to say it this time. I want it for my crew, for myself and because I grew up watching network television. “I love Donald Glover. “We are friends, I think his show is amazing. I love Aziz [Ansari, co-creator of ‘Master of None’], I love Alan Yang. All of these people, I’m friends with, and they’ll have their time. But the days of network television are numbered.”

"Black-ish" is nominated for three Emmy- awards for Comedy Series and for Lead Actor and Lead Actress in a Comedy series for stars Anderson and Ross.

For Ross, her second Emmy nomination is important. It's been 35 years since an African-American actress won in the category. Having won the Golden Globe this year, Ross has a little practice. 

"This is for all the women of color and colorful people," Ross said in her Golden Globes speech. "Whose stories, ideas thoughts are not always considered worthy and valid and important. But I want you to know I see you, we see you. It's an honor to be on the show "Black-ish" to continue expanding the way we are seen and known...and the show the beauty, the magic and the sameness of the stories that are outside of where the industry usually looks."

Ross is nominated alongside "Better Things"‘ Pamela Adlon, "Mom‘s" Allison Janney, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star Ellie Kemper, "Veep‘s" Julia Louis-Dreyfus and "Grace & Frankie" co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

"Black-ish" returns this fall on a new night, Tuesday, October 3 September on ABC. 

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards air Sunday, September 17 on CBS. For a full list of nominees, click HERE.

“Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G.” documentary coming to Biography

August 26, 2017
A&E Network will premiere the definitive documentary “Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G.” on Monday, September 4 as the first project airing under the recently relaunched ‘Biography’ banner.  The three-hour, deeply personal biography will allow the late Christopher Wallace to narrate his own incredible life story by employing exclusive archival footage and audio recordings that have never been heard before as well as new interviews by those who loved him most.

The film is directed by Mark Ford and is the first biography to be authorized by his estate and will be the most personal and revealing documentary about the late Christopher Wallace that has ever been seen before. 

The film will feature interviews with those closest to Biggie including his widow Faith Evans, his mother Voletta Wallace, his close friend Lil Cease and members of Junior Mafia as well as cultural icons Sean “Diddy” Combs, Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and Nas. 

Twenty years after his death, this film and those closest to him return to the Brooklyn neighborhood at St. James and Fulton streets. His mother, Voletta,  visits a memorial mural on the side of one of the buildings in his old neighborhood and Evans returns to the old neighborhood as she recounts the early days when the couple was newlyweds. 

Ultimately it's Sean "Diddy" Combs who's input followed with rare photos and interviews as well with B.I.G. himself that tell the true story of who the man was. It's BIG's life from a drug dealer at the age of 15 to rapper and up and coming artist with some of the biggest rap hits of all time. 

His lyrics displayed on the screen as his music is played tell the most powerful story.  

"Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G," airs September 4 on Biography.

Showtime's Whitney Houston documentary offers intimate look at the singer's life

August 25, 2017
Showtime premieres its documentary, "Whitney: Can I Be Me" Friday, August 25. The intimate look at the singer's life while on one of her last tours across Europe in 1999 and tells the story of how drugs led to her fall from grace and her ultimate death through the eyes of those who know her well including her former bodyguard, David Roberts, and the tour's musical director Michael Baker to name a few.

We see Houston's thoughts through interviews and first person accounts of key moments in her life during that tour. It gives a real look at how Houston herself deals with life in the spotlight. Her memorable line the in film, "Sucess doesn't change you, fame does" seems to describe the singer's life so poignantly.

Houston's controversial relationship with friend and confidant at the time Robyn Crawford is explored as well. It should be noted that Whitney Houston was one of the most successful female recording artists of all time, but after a troubled marriage to singer Bobby Brown and many years of struggles with addiction, Houston died suddenly and tragically at age 48. With never seen before behind the scenes footage, candid interviews and gripping performance footage – including many of Houston’s greatest hits – "Whitney."

Directed by acclaimed BAFTA Award winner Nick Broomfield (Kurt & Courtney) with Rudi Dolezal, the film explores Whitney’s central dilemma: even though she had made millions of dollars, had more consecutive number ones than The Beatles and was recognized as having one of the greatest voices of all time, she still couldn’t do what she wanted to do, either professionally or in her personal life.
