Olivia DeJonge isn’t just a cast member on TNT’s new series “Will.” To hear the actress tell it, she’s also the target audience for the program, which tells the story of William Shakespeare (Laurie Davidson), an English playwright of some renown in 16th century London, before he went on to write “Hamlet” and many other classic plays.

“I wasn’t even interested in the show, I wasn’t a Shakespeare fan,” she told Variety. But executive producer Craig Pearce “changed my mind on that, and I am excited to see him change the mind of every other young person who sees Will Shakespeare as a dusty old man.”

At Tuesday night’s premiere of the series, held at New York’s Bryant Park with an after-party at the nearby Bryant Park Grill, DeJonge says she was attracted to the contemporary, rebellious energy Pearce brought to the proceedings, especially »

‘Broadchurch’ Review: Final Season Redeems the Series With a Devastating Examination of Rape and Rape Culture

1 hour ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Broadchurch” wraps up a three-season arc by pulling off an ambitious storyline about rape that is as devastating as it is instructive.

It’s a fitting capper to a series that uses the sleepy Dorset town of Broadchurch as a microcosm to examine society’s ills. On the show, it’s been five years since the killing of local boy Danny Latimer, a devastating storyline that consumed “Broadchurch’s” excellent Season 1. [The less cohesive Season 2, which took place three years later, went off the rails a bit with Danny’s subsequent murder trial.]

Creator and writer Chris Chibnall guides “Broadchurch” steadily back home to finish off the trilogy with the help of his detective duo Alex Hardy (David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman), who provide the only humor on the show through their comfortable and mutually irascible personalities. We’re going to miss their banter.
