FX has locked in Diane Lane to star in its pilot, Y – based on DC Comics’ acclaimed series Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra.
Y traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal save for one lone human. The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival.
Diane Lane (Unfaithful, Under the Tuscan Sun) will play Senator Jennifer Brown. A Junior Senator in her first term, Senator Brown has already made a name for herself in political circles for her willingness to put personal ideals above politics. She is also the mother of Yorick and Hero Brown.
After commercial hits like Cars, Cars 2, and Monsters University – which did not yield unwavering critical acclaim – it is wonderful to note that Inside Out is a multi-layered, exquisitely rendered film that ranks right up there with WALL-E and UP.
The idea for Inside Out is that we are looking at a year in the life of eleven-year old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) as seen from inside her mind, where her emotions take on somewhat familiar forms and interact like any group of friends – with love but also lots of ups and downs.

Inside Out is the story of Riley’s emotions – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear – and how they react to this new chapter of her life.

Way back in the olden days of 1973 [I know!] PBS picked up a series that dealt with the lives of an American family – the bluntly titled An American Family. The twelve-hour documentary series catapulted the Loud family to national prominence – and millions watched as the family promptly disintegrated before their eyes.
HBO’s Cinema Verite [tonight, 9/8C] is the behind-the-scenes story of the making of ‘An American Family’ – the first real reality TV series, and the probably the last to be truly real. Check out the trailer following the jump.
After giving us unmitigated pap like You Again, it’s nice to see a genuinely good live action movie from Disney. Secretariat is smart, has heart and manages to make historic events suspenseful – not the easiest trick to pull off.
Sure, when the film is away from the track it gets a little overwrought. Sure the score is a hair too insistent at times. Underneath that, however, is solid spine – the story of a housewife who parlays a lost coin toss into the last Triple Crown winner in racing history. And not just a Triple Crown winner, but a completely dominant one – winning the Belmont Stakes, the last leg of racing’s Triple Crown, by thirty-one lengths!
