Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss Pegs Peggy for Us

Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men

She's quiet, yet occasionally lets slip some spunk. She favors a tepid homemade sandwich over a "fancy" lunch-cart nosh. And she really needs to start showing her pins. She's Mad Men's plucky Peggy, and TVGuide.com asked Elisabeth Moss (The West Wing, Invasion) to share a peek behind those bangs. Mad Men airs Thursdays at 10 pm/ET, on AMC. TVGuide.com: How goes it playing poor Peggy?Elisabeth Moss: It goes good! [Laughs] We're all done with the first season, and it was good. I'm back in New York now. TVGuide.com: Did you have any reservations about playing Peggy, who's not exactly the most glam gal in the steno pool?Moss: No, no... I liked that she was new to everything. Everybody has their specific, unique character. read more

In your column this week you ...

Question: In your column this week you said, "And speaking of self-fulfilling prophecies, I'll state my contention again that if you choose not to get behind shows out of a fear they'll get canceled, you may only be contributing to the problem." In recent history, I have tried out The Nine, Invasion, Day Break, Vanished, Studio 60 and now Traveler. With the exception of Vanished (which was wretched), I enjoyed all of them on many levels, with Invasion being my favorite and Day Break being my least. (Vanished doesn't count.) Before those there was Firefly, Freaks and Geeks, Sports Night, My So-Called Life.... I could go on. I'm just curious how many times I'll have to get torn away from a show without any fulfillment before I can stop trying to feel like it's my fault? I think back on a show like Homicide, which was amazing and so critically acclaimed despite the fact that it was never a ratings gem, and I wonder if today's market would have even given it a chance; I think we know the ... read more

Four-quadrant Television

Hey, fellow Travelers! We had a great week both in episode response and in the ratings. All of your hard work promoting the show paid off with a 23-percent ratings increase week-to-week in the 18-to-49 demo. So, a huge thank-you goes out to all the fans who continue to spread the good Traveler word! Please keep it up. The show gets even more fun, action-packed and emotional as we head into the last three episodes of the season.Wow, "fun, action-packed and emotional?" Where have I heard those criteria for good entertainment before? Well, funny story. As you know from my earlier blog entries, I started out on the film side of this wild little town we call Hollywood. And in Hollywood, there's a special buzz term we use a lot when talking about the movie biz" "four-quadrant movie." But what exactly is a 4Q film? Well, there are about a dozen of them playing in your local cineplex right now. They dominate the summer movie season. They are films that appeal to all four of the major movieg... read more

Like you, I was blown away by ...

Question: Like you, I was blown away by the pilot of The Nine. But it slowly fizzled on me, and I think I finally figured out what happened. I think that the writers were trying to write the show as if it had already been picked up for a full second season, and so they were building a lot of context without any real "bang." Do you think this is what happened, and have there been other shows that you think have fallen into this trap? Other compelling shows, like Heroes, build context while still packing a punch. I think that's one of the reasons that Heroes has done so well: It really keeps you coming back with its constant cliff-hanger endings. It reminds me of the first seasons of Lost and Alias. No matter how implausible it seemed, you had to know what happened next. Answer: The show that held The Nine's time period last season suffered much the same criticism: Initially it didn't move fast enough, and the payoffs were too subtle to keep viewers coming back. Invasion remedied that ... read more

In the Works: Invasion Star Caught in Conspiracy

Lisa Sheridan has landed the lead in the Lifetime drama pilot Conspiracy, says the Hollywood Reporter. The Invasion alumna will star as a D.C. lawyer targeted by a (yep) conspiracy after she discovers that the Big Pharma case she won was rigged.... Per Variety, Cedric the Entertainer has signed a talent holding deal with ABC, as part of which he will star, write and exec-produce a comedy about the single father of a teenage girl.... Fox has a pilot deal for The Institution, a single-camera comedy focused on three couples weathering the highs and lows of matrimony, while CBS is developing The Swim Team, about a thirtysomething bachelor whose college-days sperm-bank donation comes back to haunt him in the form of a knock at the door. read more

Premise: They're here---aliens, that is, surfacing in a Florida hurricane and assuming human form. But the ETs may have been there long before. That's the setup for this provocatively cryptic sci-fi mystery, which is eerily reminiscent of the classic `Invasion of the Body Snatchers' as well as 'The X-Files.' The drama was created by Shaun Cassidy (`American Gothic'), who describes the series as mixing `darkness and light. It's all about the balance.'
