From Danielle Turchiano of Variety:

Link: ‘Unreal’ and ‘Mary Kills People’ teams talk topical storytelling and an in-season ‘Me Too Moment’
“I think that if we’ve done our jobs properly, Olivia is a little bit of a mirror to Mary. And rather than rooting for one or the other, I’m hoping that what people will do is wonder why they’ve been rooting for Mary. Is she doing the right thing for the right reasons? Do the ends justify the means? I’m all for the big, heady questions.” Continue reading.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

“I think we’re getting this sense that Mary may be struggling with some of the same mental issues that their mother did. I think that’s frightening to Mary as well. Because of that, Nicole may have more of a clear conscience of what’s going on, where Mary is knee-deep in it. She’s sacrificing her family, her home and job for this and has a lot on the line where Nicole doesn’t.” Continue reading.

Big Brother Canada returns Wednesday, March 7, on Global

From a media release:

#BBCAN fans can finally mark their calendars as Global announces broadcast details for juggernaut reality series Big Brother Canada, premiering Wednesday, March 7 at 7 p.m. ET/PT. With three recent Canadian Screen Award (CSA) nominations – including Best Reality/Competition Series – the perennial fan favourite returns three nights a week on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. ET/PT, Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global. Building off of the powerful response from #BBCAN fans, viewers can expect Season 6 to deliver big twists, staggering challenges, and of course, lots of drama.

Once again in Season 6, Big Brother Canada selects a group of hand-picked strangers from their homes, sequesters them from the outside world, and places them inside a house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones that capture their every move. Competing for a grand cash prize, each week the houseguests battle in a series of challenges that give them power or punishment, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.

Also returning this season is host Arisa Cox who is currently up for the CSA’s Audience Choice Award. Beginning tomorrow, fans can continue to place their vote by clicking here.

Leading up to the premiere on March 7, fans can get their Big Brother fix during a new episode of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Global. Viewers can tune in four nights a week over two-and-a-half weeks until the winner is crowned during the finale on Sunday, February 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Additional details about Big Brother Canada Season 6, including this season’s houseguest reveal and the grand prize, will be announced in the coming weeks.

From Occhi magazine:

Link: Actress Abigail Winter chats with us about the hit show “Mary Kills People” and her projects
“One of the things I considered when preparing for this role was remembering how much more intense everything feels when we are teenagers. In that time of life, people are still in the process of figuring out who they, and as a result, are more easily influenced by other people and the events around them. Additionally, it was important to me that Jess didn’t come across just as a moody teenager that is upset with her mom. Rather, we also see her vulnerability, big heart, and intelligence, that sometimes end up being suppressed in order to protect herself from getting hurt.” Continue reading.

“I also felt very lucky to portray a character who is in the process of coming to terms with her sexuality. And what’s even better is that the writers didn’t treat Jess’ experiences any differently than they would for a heterosexual character. It was refreshing.” Continue reading.

“There are a lot of other teenage plots centered around boys and high school drama, which is fine because that’s what happens, but to see that these characters have stuff going on underneath all that is fun. You don’t just see their outward teenage moodiness. You see why that is happening and what they are protecting underneath all that.” Continue reading.

An odd twist of fate has led to Mary Harris’ (Caroline Dhavernas) life coming full circle since the death of last season’s nemesis Grady (Greg Bryk). First, his sister Olivia Bloom (Rachelle Lefevre) orders Mary to kill her husband Travis (Ian Lake), then when poor Mary is forced into the act through a powerfully convincing threat she runs into Ben (Jay Ryan), last season’s love interest and the man who almost threw her in jail. We last left off last week with the two coming face to face for the first time. Continue reading.
