Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

12 Nov

Master of None was how I spent my weekend and there’s a whole bunch of photos from this show on this week’s TV Instagram round-up including one that hit me right in the feels. Plus plenty of other set shenanigans from shows like ElementaryJane the Virgin and the forthcoming Legends of Tomorrow.

 

Future excellent Good Wife guest star and excellent Lucca Quinn outfit ahoy.

 

The excellent Master of None is definitely a family affair with Aziz Ansari’s parents playing his parents on the show and his brother Aniz collaborated on the writing end. I am now in a post marathoning funk.

My dad took off most of his vacation time for the year to act in Master of None. So I'm really relieved this all worked out. Tonight after we did Colbert together he said: "This is all fun and I liked acting in the show, but I really just did it so I could spend more time with you." I almost instantly collapsed into tears at the thought of how much this person cares about me and took care of me and gave me everything to give me the amazing life I have. I felt like a total piece of garbage for all the times I haven't visited my parents and told them I wanted to stay in New York cause I'd get bored in SC. I'm an incredibly lucky person and many of you are as well. Not to beat a dead horse here and sorry if this is cheesy or too sentimental but if your parents are good to you too, just go do something nice for them. I bet they care and love you more than you realize. I've been overwhelmed by the response to the Parents episode of our show. What's strange is doing that episode and working with my parents has increased the quality of my relationship to my parents IN MY REAL LIFE. In reality, I haven't always had the best, most open relationship with my parents because we are weirdly closed off emotionally sometimes. But we are getting better. And if you have something like that with your family – I urge you to work at it and get better because these are special people in your life and I get terrified when my dad tells me about friends of his, people close to his age, that are having serious health issues, etc. Enjoy and love these people while you can. Anyway, this show and my experiences with my parents while working on it have been very important in many ways and I thank for you the part you all have played in it.

And now things are getting a little misty up in here.

 

I mentioned this a couple of days ago, but I really hope there is more Shannon in season 2 because Danielle Brooks killed it as Dev’s agent.

 

And you should definitely Treat Yo Self.

 

Mostly I just want an excuse to talk about how incredible Regina King is on The Leftovers this week (and every week) and the questionnaire scene with Carrie Coon is jaw-droppingly good. Powerhouse performances from both women and I am still thinking about it.

different faces same disguise #TheAmericans

A post shared by Annet Mahendru (@annetmahendru) on

 

The cast of The Americans has just as much fun with the disguises as I do writing about them.

 

More from The Americans season 4 table reads and is that Dylan Baker I spy sitting there?

 

Scream Queens is pretty patchy; one person who has been consistently brilliant throughout is Glen Powell and he really can work a golf bro ensemble.

 

I want to see which character comes next in this chain. Maybe Andy Sachs.

FIRESTORM rainstorm brainstorm #legends #bts

A post shared by CAITY LOTZ (@caitylotz) on

 

Fake rain or real rain on Legends of Tomorrow? I will be very glad when this show starts because a) more Victor Garber on TV and b) Arrow and The Flash can go back to focusing on their own storylines rather than setting up the spinoff.

 

Elementary made a very welcome return last week and I am as happy as Lucy Liu and Aidan Quinn are delightful in this Jonny Lee Miller snapped shot.

 

I still need to watch last week’s episode and so I’m reading the look on Viola Davis’ face as one that is questioning my viewing choices.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Oct

The returning shows keep on coming and so do the cast reunions on this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes.” Plus costume treats galore and other on-set antics.

 

Jane the Virgin is back (!) and this lady will be guest starring soon (!). It is all the better knowing Rogelio will be involved somehow.

 

And now a message of love from the Jane the Virgin cast.

ITS AIRING!! SEASON 2!! YAY!!

A post shared by Brett Dier (@brettdier) on

 

Viewing party treats and this cast is all over Instagram for your Jane fix.

 

Petra’s getting pregnant cons list is long and includes maternity clothes, but now I want to see what costume designer Rachel Sage Kunin would stir up in this department. Meanwhile here is a regular costume fitting (this dress is fabulous) and Entertainment Weekly has more behind the scenes snaps courtesy of Yael Grobglas.

 

Game of Thrones costume sneak peeks courtesy of Emilia Clarke. And for a moment I thought Daenerys was going to be rocking a knit beanie this season (not really, but the wig net does look like winter head wear).

Look who else is in Spain. Possibly a coincidence, probably shooting Game of Thrones (as well as selfies).

 

Oh hey Team Marvel (on Netflix) at New York Comic-Con.

Killer cheekbones alert at NYCC from this Jessica Jones duo.

 

NYCC also led to a couple of TV reunions which made me feel all the things.

 

And this one.

 

More Buffy treats from Sarah Michelle Gellar with this take on National Angel Food Cake Day. Yep that is a day apparently and I like this version better.

 

America Ferrera’s old co-workers can’t keep away and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Judith Light or Vanessa Williams next.

 

More glasses to add to the covet list and trailer fun times from Sleepy Hollow.

 

Production has started on season 4 of The Americans and Holly Taylor shared this spy like shot of the first table read (she also posted a clearer look at the table read set up on Twitter).

#theleftovers season 2 that's a wrap !!!!!!!!

A post shared by Liv Tyler (@misslivalittle) on

 

For us The Leftovers has only just started, for the actors they just finished filming the finale. Will we find out the backstory of the wedding dress gardening woman? And how she manages to keep it so clean while doing a task like this.

 

Digging Sherlock’s stripes and less than a month until Elementary is back.

 

Gabby Sidibe’s caption just made me laugh a whole lot.

 

It kinda looks like Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett are reacting to Gabby’s previous photo. Instead they were watching Empire and this really could be in reference to any number of scenes.

 

A treasure trove of patterned and colorful garments for Mindy Kaling to try on for a Mindy Project fitting. My eyes are instantly drawn to the starry number.

 

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

7 Oct

Plenty more returning shows this week offering up behind the scenes treats on TV Instagram. Plus old cast mates hanging out together, Empire style sneak peeks and what some of the stars of The Americans have been up to during its hiatus.

 

Paris Fashion Week delivered a super adorable Game of Thrones reunion complete with super adorable hashtags to boot.

 

They were frenemies on screen, but this Ugly Betty trio looks thrilled to be hanging out together again.

 

Except when secret projects are being filmed featuring a song by another one of their Ugly Betty co-stars. Whatever Michael Urie and Becki Newton have planned count me in.

 

Potential disguises/season 4 storyline ideas for Nina and Oleg on The Americans?

 

Meanwhile Kimmy lost her corkscrew curls and has been busy walking the runway at the Balenciaga Paris Fashion Week show.

 

Bathrooms at fancy pants events seem like they would be the most fascinating and friendly places for dress related problems.

 

#NightOutGoals

 

Legit screaming about this guest appearance. Gina Rodriguez’s caption says it all really.

 

Each week the Empire costume design team raise their game and tonight’s episode is no different.

 

And now they are getting to show off their ethereal maternity wear style for Rhonda.

 

Garvey love for Ann Dowd on the set of The Leftovers.

 

And now I want a project where Liv Tyler and Margaret Qualley play mother and daughter. More evidence to support this notion.

 

The Flash and Barry’s fabulous boots are back!

 

Alan Cumming took over the official Good Wife Insta on Sunday to celebrate its premiere and there are plenty of behind the scenes shots including Eli’s secret aspirations and a highly anticipated future guest star.

 

Varying degrees of pouting effort in this Scream Queens photo.

 

I can see Ilana working this tee paired with some denim shorts on Broad City.

 

The Stephanie Beatriz glasses envy continues this week.

 

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

19 Aug

The steady stream of shows returning to set for the fall season continues and we’ve got a mix of weekly favorites such as The Mindy Project and Orange is the New Black with some new faces. Plus magazine cover flashbacks, editorial dance parties and some style highs on this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes.”

 

Jane the Virgin is back for season 2 in October (Monday 12) and the cast are looking all kinds of adorable as they sit down and fist bump over their first table read of the new TV year. And I just remembered Britney Spears is going to be on the show, which might send me down another happy Britney gif hole. I am more than fine with this.

 

Cute summer dress goals with a twist of 1960s inspiration courtesy of Mae Whitman – who killed it on the Teen Choice Awards red carpet – in Rachel Antonoff when she appeared on The Tonight Show. Whitman got to squish up with Kevin Spacey and Keegan Michael Key and various others in a phone booth and this dress held up well.

Tattoo is back! Season 4 OFFICIALLY begins now

A post shared by Ike Barinholtz (@ikebarinholtz) on

 

Morgan’s tattoo is making an appearance on season 4 of The Mindy Project but it’s Mindy’s Bedhead flamingo pjs that have caught my eye. Adding to the ever growing Mindy covet list.

It’s not just the ladies who are awash with color and print on The Mindy Project as Garret Dilahunt gives a sneak peek at his bold costuming. Dilahunt will be playing Mindy’s maternity leave cover and he thinks she is a ‘tacky idiot.’

 

I have definitely got some accidental #NOTASNAP videos on my phone from various nights out where stumbly fingers change the setting, but this one by Chelsea Peretti seems all purpose.

NO HANDS

A post shared by Chelsea Peretti (@chelsanity) on

 

Also from the Brooklyn Nine-Nine set and could this be the return of the wolfie sweater? Or maybe just an old picture (her hair looks different so I’m leaning towards it making a comeback). I am so excited for the return of one of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s sweater and all round costume queens.

 

Your weekly dose of Orange is the New Black set life with Samira Wiley posting a photo on Instagram while she is looking on Instagram.

 

On set but not in costume with Jackie Cruz showing her support for the ‘free the nipple’ campaign in a cute crop top, jorts and Cons combo.

 

The cast of Empire are featured in the iconic Vogue September issue; all super glammed up and with plenty of dancing on set.

So here for old magazine covers, particularly ones which don’t really make a whole lot of sense. Like why did they think the licking of the face thing was a good direction to go in? It is definitely something different that’s for sure and I feel a lot better about this than the other face licking which has appeared on TV recently (I’m looking at you Scandal).

Reunited! She's all grown up! @stefanialavieowen 💗

A post shared by AnnaSophia Robb (@annasophiarobb) on

 

This has made me equal parts happy and sad; I’m still not over you, Carrie Diaries.

 

It’s a party over at Sleepy Hollow for Jenny Mills, the returning Joe Corbin and a mystery man played by Anthony K. Hyatt.

 

I didn’t see the first season of Secrets and Lies – did Ryan Phillippe do it? – but Juliette Lewis and her sharp dressing new cast mates are making me very intrigued for season 2.

 

Happy Wednesday!
