Catch LA + West Hollywood Adventures

If you’re ever driving down the Prius-smooshed 405 at sunset, wondering where you should eat dinner in West Hollywood, get on OpenTable, type in “Catch LA,” and book an 8 p.m. reservation for two. You might be skeptical about this advice, rightly asking, “Catch? Isn’t that a chain of restaurants in New York , Dubai and Playa del Carmen, Mexico?” And …

Harvey Weinstein Isn’t the Only One

Over the past week, I have been voraciously following the Harvey Weinstein story both as it played out in The New York Times and with more vivid, damnable detail today by Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker.

Starsky & Hutch Returns … to Your TV

Funny just last night I was half asleep in bed, flipping through the channels and trying with pitiless resolve to swat a fly, when Starsky and Hutch, (the one with Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn) appeared on TV. Underrated, I thought, laughing at a particularly funny scene I now can’t recall. This should’ve been bigger. Apparently someone in Hollywood felt …

Jennifer Lawrence is officially the best friend you never knew you had but secretly always wanted, so thank goodness she’s yours now! In a new video for Omaze.com, the Oscar winner adorably promotes a charity contest, which will see one lucky winner getting to drink a whole bunch of wine with her in California’s grape-twined vineyards. As Jen says, you’ll …

WHAT. Today Deadline reported a newly hatched How I Met Your Father is alive and very possibly, potentially happening, with FX’s You’re The Worst writer, Alison Bennett, putting words to the prospective sitcom. Bennett’s credits include writer-producer on Comedy Central’s Idiotsitter and Hulu’s The Awesomes.

The Surprising Ways Successful Screenwriters Find Inspiration

There’s a spot in my living room that undeniably catches the best morning light. A leather armchair is catty-cornered into it, and if you sit there by the window, you only see my neighbor’s big, leafy tree and not much else, which makes you feel like you’ve temporarily fallen into some tropical oasis of leather chairs and sunlight and leaves. Then you open the window and …
