Better Call Saul

As the AMC series kicks off its final season, the backstory of Bob Odenkirk's beloved Saul Goodman is nearing its end. Odenkirk and his costars reflect on their roles in the less-than-ethical odyssey that foreshadows Breaking Bad.

Natasha Lyonne

In season two of Russian Doll, Natasha Lyonne takes new leaps in space and time to explore life, death and identity. And while her character hurtles through the decades, Lyonne herself balances acting, producing, writing, directing and showrunning.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The production design team of the Prime Video series strives to surprise while keeping the comedy true to the times. For Midge and family, that means new stories on new sets that capture the look and feel of 1960s New York City.

Stephen Merchant

The cocreator and star of Prime Video's The Outlaws plays off some family history and his affection for his hometown.

Adam McKay

The L.A. Lakers of the 1980s weren't just sports champions — Magic, Kareem and the rest changed our views of culture, politics and race. It was "when African-American culture becomes American culture," says Adam McKay, executive producer of HBO's Winning Time, a full-court McKaysian mashup that exudes the sweat and swagger of the era known as Showtime.

Fiona Shaw

From spycraft on BBC America's Killing Eve to spacecraft on Disney+'s Andor, Fiona Shaw's recent television work is taking her to unexpected places.

Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway

Investors went wacky for WeWork, throwing money at its eccentric, often shoeless CEO. Billions in losses later, questions remain about the audacious Adam Neumann and his wife Rebekah, who hoped to make trillions — and bring about world peace. The new Apple TV+ series WeCrashed follows the couple's wild Wall Street ride.

Alia Shawkat

Following the fifth and final season of the HBO Max dark comedy, Alia Shawkat sets her sights on wider industry roles.

Judy Woodruff

"I don't pull punches," declares PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff. And in digging for facts, she doesn't take sides. Hailed for her forthright, respectful reporting, she's been known to miff politicians on the left and right.

The Dropout

The brilliant young billionaire who bluffed the best of Silicon Valley was an irresistible subject for showrunner Elizabeth Meriwether.


When Will Smith saw Morgan Cooper's concept trailer, "My mind exploded with possibility," he says. The result: a reimagining of Smith's classic '90s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, as the contemporary Peacock drama, Bel-Air — now with a wider, wiser view of what it means to be Black.
