The series centers around the fictional design firm Sugarbaker and Associates, a witty bully pulpit for caustic social and political humor. The founder of the company is Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter), a sharp-tongued but elegant and surprisingly compassionate woman.

Dorman has played the lead on the Amazon Studios’ quirky genre-bending spy drama series Patriot whose second season was ordered 16 months ago but is yet to air. Because of the delay, Dorman was able to book a new series. I hear Amazon will likely not make a formal renewal decision on Patriot until Season 2 is released and should they opt to do another season, they will have to work around Dorman’s schedule on the Apple series.

That film is Warner Bros.’ “Crazy Rich Asians,” the first film to feature an all-Asian cast since “The Joy Luck Club” was released in 1993. In an attempt to help build word of mouth heading into the weekend, WB is releasing the film on Wednesday, with projections expecting a $26 million opening over five days.
But analysts who spoke with TheWrap say that the film has a big upside, and that an opening of at least $30 million should be expected. Even though it doesn’t have the superhero pedigree of “Wonder Woman” or “Black Panther,” like those films, “Crazy Rich Asians” is fulfilling a long-standing demand for a section of the moviegoing populace to see themselves on-screen.
Jost, who will host next month’s Emmy awards with his “Weekend Update” co-anchor Michael Che, received some push-back Tuesday after telling The Los Angeles Times about his desire to see “good, fun” things win awards rather than only “good, artsy” things.
“Remember when movies like ‘Gladiator’ won best picture? Why can’t good, fun things win and not just good artsy things? They’re both good and the fun ones are sometimes a lot harder to make,” Jost said in an interview with the paper about hosting the Emmys.

Moh was named as a member of the cast last month, but his role was not officially released. Individuals with knowledge of the project told to TheWrap this week that Moh will play Lee.

“It’s been 45 years since this man passed,” tweeted Moh, who is best known for playing Triton on Marvel’s “The Inhumans.” “#brucelee has inspired me in so many ways… Martial arts, acting, his philosophies on life. But look at the loving way he looked at his children.
