Press: Emmy Rossum Inks First-Look Deal With UCP

Press: Emmy Rossum Inks First-Look Deal With UCP

The ‘Shameless’ grad is set to star in and exec produce the studio’s ‘Angelyne,’ which sources say will be the first show picked up for NBCUniversal’s forthcoming streaming platform.

Emmy Rossum’s post-Shameless career is going to be spent at Universal Content Productions.

The actress and director has signed a first-look overall deal with the cable- and streaming-focused studio. The pact extends Rossum’s relationship with UCP, for whom she is starring in and executive producing the limited series Angelyne, based on The Hollywood Reporter’s feature story about the life of the Los Angeles billboard diva. Sources say Angelyne is being picked up by NBCUniversal’s forthcoming streaming service as its first scripted original.

Under the pact, Rossum will develop premium scripted content for the studio under her newly launched Composition 8 banner. Rossum joins her husband, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, at the studio. Esmail, who recently renewed his deal with UCP, is exec producing Angelyne alongside Rossum.

“Emmy is an amazing talent and a force of nature. Over this past year we have had the pleasure of working closely with her as a producer and know firsthand that her talents know no bounds. We are lucky to have this triple threat in our family,” UCP and Wilshire Studios president Dawn Olmstead said Wednesday in a statement.

Rossum is fresh off a nine-season run on Showtime’s Shameless, where she played the eldest sibling and matriarch of the rag-tag Gallagher family. Rossum made her directorial debut on Shameless (produced by Warner Bros. TV) and went on to helm two episodes of the series, as well as installments of TNT’s Animal Practice and Amazon’s upcoming Modern Love.

“The opportunity to tell stories is a gift and there has been no greater time than now for women to lead the charge. I am thrilled to be partnering with UCP to create opportunity for new and diverse voices,” said Rossum, who famously fought for and achieved salary parity with Shameless male lead William H. Macy.

Rossum will star as Angelyne, the L.A.-raised daughter of Holocaust survivors and self-created pop culture icon, in the limited series based on THR’s award-winning senior writer Gary Baum’s investigative feature. Baum will serve as a consultant — and character — on the drama after spending months researching Angelyne’s past. The series is the first scripted TV adaptation of a Hollywood Reporter article since the publication’s reinvention as a weekly magazine and home for longform journalism. Oscar nominee Nancy Oliver (Lars and the Real Girl) will pen the script and exec produce alongside Esmail and his Esmail Corp banner, Anonymous Content’s Chad Hamilton and Baum.

Rossum joins a roster of producers with deals at UCP including Esmail, Charlize Theron, John Carpenter and Kathleen Robertson, among others. Rossum’s pact arrives as the overall deals space continues to remain red-hot with outlets like NBCUniversal, Disney and WarnerMedia planning streaming services of their own in a bid to compete with Netflix. The latter ignited a war for top talent after signing broadcast-based super-producers Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes to exclusive overall deals. Since then, traditional studios like UCP and ABC Studios have been aggressive in pursuing top talent for overall deals, with the price tags often reaching eight and nine figures.

Angelyne will mark the second time Rossum and Esmail have worked together. They met while Esmail was making his directorial debut, Comet, in which Rossum starred. The couple married in May 2017.

Rossum, whose credits also include The Phantom of the Opera, Mystic River, Beautiful Creatures, Poseidon and The Day After Tomorrow, is repped by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Felker Toczek.

NBCUniversal’s unnamed streaming platform is expected to launch in 2020. The ad-supported, direct-to-consumer platform will be overseen by Bonnie Hammer.

The fourth annual “Benefit to Save Them All” highlighted the Best Friends Animal Society’s goal of making America reach “no-kill” nationwide by 2025.

If there’s one thing that can bring people together during peak partisanship, it seems to be cats and dogs.

“I feel like there’s a lot of heaviness going on,” Lauren Ash told The Hollywood Reporter at the Best Friends Animal Society’s “Benefit to Save Them All” on Wednesday. “Certainly there’s a lot of dissension, but I think that animals are something we can all agree need help.”

Ash, along with Amanda Seyfried, Emmy Rossum and Justin Theroux — who received the second-ever “Save Them All” Spotlight Award — joined members of the organization in New York City to celebrate the progress being made in the “no-kill” movement.

“Every year, about a million animals die in this country just because they don’t have space. There’s nowhere for them to go. So for us, it’s all about finding those million animals a home,” said Best Friends CEO Julie Castle. “And our entire goal right now is to end the killing of animals in shelters by 2025. We’ve got a lot of support behind it, but the public really is the answer.”

According to Castle, before Best Friends was created, the number of animals dying due to a lack of space was actually 17 million. Today, a mere five states make up 50 percent of the animals being killed: California, Texas, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. However, one of the first cities that could potentially be declared “no-kill” is actually in California.

“When we started, 56,000 animals were entering L.A. shelters, and they had about a 50 percent save rate,” Castle said. “Today, that save rate is right around 90 percent.”

Rossum, who instead of creating a traditional registry for her wedding asked for donations to Best Friends, said that she’s “so impressed” that an organization can have such a large impact “in a very real way that’s extremely tangible.”

“Living in Los Angeles so much, I’ve been so impressed with the incredible work they’ve done to move L.A. so much closer to becoming the country’s first real no-kill city,” said the actress.

Throughout the evening, the stars on the red carpet were joined by dogs and cats available for adoption. Theroux, however, brought his own dog.

“I don’t think of it as me being honored, I think of it as her being honored,” he said.

Castle praised the actor, saying he’s “such an iconic person and figure, and the fact that he’s so passionate about animals really helps us spread our message.”

Seyfried, who won the award last year, presented the honor to Theroux. Her priority remains educating people about the importance of animal adoption. “It’s, like, almost impossible not to know about what rescue actually means and how big of a difference it makes for animals,” said the actress.

Ralph Lauren teamed up with a host of influencers for its latest holiday shopping campaign, tapping Emmy Rossum, Cameron Dallas, Iman, Taylor Hill, Olivia Palermo, Johannes Huebl the Shibutani siblings Alex and Maia to curated their own holiday shopping lists. The campaign then kicked off at the brand’s Beverly Hills flagship with a party Thursday night hosted by Rachel Zoe and Nate Berkus. Other guests included Kelly Sawyer, Elizabeth Chambers, Caroline Vreeland, Candice Nelson and David Lauren.

“They asked me to host along with Nate and to work on a gift guide for them, which of course was not hard at all since we are such a Ralph family and always have been,” said Zoe of the campaign, which she shot in Central Park. “It’s fun to help people navigate shopping. Men are the most challenging to buy for because they are so particular about what they want or don’t want but a guy is always happy to see a Ralph Lauren shopping bag. You can’t go wrong with a big Navajo cardigan or a shearling bomber. Or a holiday scented candle.”

Said Berkus, “I always appreciate giving and receiving things of quality that won’t go out of style, like a shearling jacket or handsome piece of leather luggage. The best gifts are ones that are well-crafted and stand the test of time.”

Model Hill, who is the face of the Romance fragrance, said, “Romance is the perfect holiday scent for parties and romantic nights in, and my go-to uniform for family time in Colorado is a shawl-collar cardigan and cowboy boots.”

Cameron Dallas is also a mountain lover, noting, “I love traveling for the holidays, going snowboarding and spending time with friends and family. It’s what the holidays are all about. A cashmere sweater or cool hoodie are perfect for hanging out after a day on the mountain.”

But as Olivia Palermo sees it, “Feeling festive is all about the details, and nothing says the holidays more than cozy knits and beautiful jewel embellishments.”

Press: Emmy Rossum Reveals What She Actually Weighs

Emmy Rossum isn’t defined by her weight.

On Wednesday, the 31-year-old actress asked her Instagram followers if they “want to know what I weigh?”

She then said “Click on my stories. @i_weigh BECAUSE YOU AE SO MUCH MORE THAN A NUMBER,” tagging the I Weigh movement, which encourages women to feel confident despite what number appears on a scale.

“During my life the scale has told me that I’ve gained and lost and gained and lost,” Rossum began.

“Somewhere in the range of 20 pounds. But that piece of metal doesn’t really know,” Rossum continued. “Here’s what I ACTUALLY WEIGH.”

On the next story, Rossum shared a mirror selfie of herself in workout clothes with some of her best qualities written across it.

“3 best friends since kindergarten, drive, kindness, empathy, makes friends with strangers, Jewish and proud, Daughter, 100+ hours of television,” Rossum listed.

“The courage it takes everyday to overcome ptsd, one happy marriage, 3 episodes of television directed, countless hours of therapy, one finished screenplay, and animal rescuer,” Rossum added.

“See, when you add up everything you are??” Rossum wrote covering the words that describe her.

“The size of your thighs don’t really matter anymore do they?!” Rossum asked.

“So join me in this. Show people what you are actually made of. Because you are so much more than a f—— number.”

Later in the day, Rossum again tried to urge her fans to follow her lead.

“So I want to nominate everyone who saw this to do their own version of ‘I Weigh,’ tell us what you’re made of. Because you’re so much more than what that dumb f—— piece of metal says. Alright? OK? Gotta go to work bye.”

The I Weigh movement was originally started by Jameela Jamil, 32. The Good Place star created an Instagram page in hopes of providing a safe place for women who want to celebrate body positivity.

Press: Showtime Bosses On How Long ‘Shameless’ & ‘Ray Donovan’ Can Go -TCA

Shameless is heading into its expanded ninth season as the longest-running drama on premium cable and one of the most watched.

With 8 million episodes a week, the most recent eighth season of Shameless was most watched in Showtime’s history and ranked as the No.1 premium cable series in 2018.

“That show defies gravity,” Showtime president of programming Gary Levine said during the Showtime TCA executive session when asked about how many seasons they envision the family drama-comedy will run.

“Our feeling is that the Gallaghers can live on…, I don’t mind having them on the air for years to come.

Showtime CEO David Nevins credited the setup of the show, a “family group of characters who change over time” as helping to drive its longevity.

Ultimately, “it will be up to (executive producers) John Wells and Nancy Pimental behind the camera and Emmy Rossum and Bill Macy in front of the camera” when the series will end, Levine said.

With Homeland ending after Season 8, Ray Donovan becomes Showtime’s second longest-running scripted series. Levine feels optimistic about the prospects of the drama going beyond its upcoming fifth season, in which the title character moves from Los Angeles to New York. The change of scenery has been great for the series, Levine said.

“We are looking toward and enjoying this revitalized new direction for Ray,” he said.

Liam must develop a new skill set to survive outside of his cushy private school walls.
