PBS’ ‘Finding Your Roots’ Returns After Ben Affleck Controversy

NEW YORK (AP) — PBS’ popular “Finding Your Roots” series, temporarily shelved after an episode omitted references to the slaveholding past of Ben Affleck’s ancestor at the actor’s request, will return to public television for its third season in January.

The show has hired a new fact-checker and two new genealogists as part of its reforms, said the network’s Beth Hoppe on Monday. PBS had suspended the series after determining that the show’s producers violated standards by allowing Affleck undue influence on its content and failing to inform the network of his request.

“It has become a more transparent process and a more rigorous process,” Hoppe said, “but essentially at its core these are personal stories about people who are finding out about their histories. That hasn’t changed.”

“Finding Your Roots,” which is hosted and written by Henry Louis Gates Jr., returns on Jan. 5. Julianne Moore, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Sen. John McCain and television producers Norman Lear and Shonda Rhimes are among the 28 new celebrities whose backgrounds are traced.

Given the sensitivity of the Affleck case, the series makes certain to mention if its experts find slaveholding backgrounds for any of the celebrities featured this season, even if that isn’t a central part of the story being told, Hoppe said. That’s the case with several people in the new season, but PBS would not reveal which ones.

Hoppe said Gates has done everything PBS has asked to ensure the show has no further problems.

Dior Returns as Sponsor of the Guggenheim International Gala

For the third consecutive year, Dior is sponsoring the Guggenheim International Gala in New York. The two-night art party, known as the GIG, supports the museum’s operations, including exhibitions, educational programs and the landmark building. To be held Nov. 4 and 5, the first night is a pre-party — read: younger, hipper — hosted by the Young Collectors Council that will feature a performance by Grimes, the Canadian producer, singer and songwriter also known as Claire Boucher, whose fourth album is due out this fall. The second night is a benefit dinner  honoring artists On Kawara (in memoriam) and Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, both the subjects of recent exhibitions, and Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, whose work is on view at the museum through Oct. 12.
Since coming on as a sponsor, Dior has infused the GIG with a new energy. In 2013 DJ Richie Hawtin (aka Plastikman) performed at the pre-party. Last year, it was British indie band The xx.

‘Fashion Police’ Returns In August With Melissa Rivers As Co-Host

After the death of Joan Rivers, losing two co-hosts and a whole lot of drama, “Fashion Police” will return this August with Melissa Rivers, reports Variety.

E! announced that veteran co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski will also return to the show, kicking off the first episode with coverage of the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 31. The new season will feature the trio of co-hosts, as well as two other rotating celebrity guests in each episode.

Back in March, E! announced the show was going on hiatus after co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin left the series. The former co-hosts exited amid drama surrounding Rancic’s offensive remarks about actress Zendaya’s dreadlocks during a post-Oscars episode of “Fashion Police.”

On the show, Rancic said Zendaya’s dreadlocks made her look as if she smelled “like patchouli oil” or “weed,” though it was later confirmed that the co-host’s remarks were edited, and that she was making a reference to “hippie culture.”

Suzan-Lori Parks Returns From the Wars Triumphant

“Dark is the night, long is the day” sings a balladeer at the beginning of Suzan-Lori Parks’ masterful Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3) at the Public. Since the ushers — along with the ticket-takers and elevator attendants — have all warned us that the first act runs nearly two hours, we might well hear this as “long is the play.” Long, perhaps; but as soon as Parks draws you into her epic, you’re likely to lose any notion of time.

The almost three hours of Father Comes Home from the Wars will leave you eager for more. A good thing, as there is more; namely Parts 4-9. It is only a foolhardy or brilliant playwright who will scope out a scheme which will require the erstwhile theatergoer to buy multiple tickets in order to see one complete work; The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, Angels in America and The Orphans’ Home Cycle spring to mind. While it is too early to place Father Comes Home from the Wars in such company — Parks has yet to write all nine of the interrelated one-acts, after all — the first three parts are overloaded with soaring language, trenchant philosophy and provocative debate.

A Measure of a Man starts with a Greek chorus of four “less than desirable” slaves standing on what passes for the local street corner — it is 1862, on a dusty plantation in West Texas — betting on whether Hero, the #1 slave, will chose to go to the War as Boss-Master’s servant-slave. (It’s a society without money; one fellow bets his boots, another his spoon.) We begin to see the universality of this journey — and this cycle of plays — when we learn that Hero’s wife is named Penny, and that his cross-eyed dog is Odd-See (or Odyssey); there is no Ulysses present, at least early on, other than that marauding general up North.

What makes the burgeoning evening most exciting is that Parks’ Greek drama of the American Civil War, set very much in period, is contemporary; there is enough in the characters and the dialogue — even in the costumes, with some actors drifting on wearing basketball sneakers — to tell us that Father Comes Home is a play of ideas and freedom that directly speaks to us, here in the 21st century.

The expansive nature of the cycle becomes apparent in the second one-act, A Battle in the Wilderness. The time is later that year, the place a shaded area in the middle of nowhere, the middle of no man’s land. A Confederate colonel — Hero’s owner — is holding a Union captain captive in a wooden cage. Or is he a Union captain? Hero stands guard, but the slave has far more in common with the captive. Parks corners her characters into discussions of freedom, slavery and worth. How much is Hero, in fact, worth? He pridefully considers his monetary value; eight hundred dollars, or isn’t he really worth a thousand? If the South loses, though, he is free — and not worth a dollar. Which is the better existence? And what if he escapes? Is he in effect stealing eight hundred dollars from his hated, hateful master? If slavery is an immoral institution, what does it mean for a slave to be true to his owner?

After intermission comes the third play, The Union of My Confederate Parts. This is Hero’s homecoming from the War in 1863, not as a hero but in defeat. (The War rages on but Boss-Master has been killed in battle.) Penny/Penelope has waited for him, although there are a couple of surprises in store. There are also some runaway slaves hiding on the plantation; as Part 3 ends, they escape — not knowing that they are technically free, courtesy of the just-declared Emancipation Proclamation. There is much cross-discussion of loyalty and bonds, but the answers are never easy. Parks ups the ante in this section by adding an element of outrageous fantasy that is mighty farfetched, but it works so deliciously well that we are sent out into the night eager for Parts 4, 5 & 6.

Director Jo Bonney (of Small Engine Repair and By the Way, Meet Vera Stark), who has been part of Father Comes Home since 2009, has done a masterful job and is clearly an intrinsic part of the project, which is a coproduction of the Public (Oscar Eustis) and the American Repertory Theatre (Diane Paulus). All deserve credit for the work they’ve done and the work yet to do, as does the design team of Neil Patel (sets), Esosa (costumes) and Lap Chi Chu (lighting). The ten-person cast of relatively little-known actors does wonderfully well, with standout turns by Sterling K. Brown (Hero), Jenny Jules (Penny), Jeremie Harris (Homer), Louis Cancelmi (Smith, the captive soldier) and Jacob Ming-Trent in a perfectly droll impersonation.

At this point in the creation of the cycle, A Battle in the Wilderness — with its concentration on slavery and freedom, leading to a sudden (and unexpected) moment of unharnessed emotion — is the strongest of the plays. The Union of My Confederate Parts is a close second, thanks in part to that fantastical whimsy which provides clarity. Parks is already a Pulitzer-winner for her 2001 play Topdog/Underdog, and a winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Grant. Father Comes Home from the Wars — and we have no way of knowing whether the cycle will stay in the Civil War era or move on to other prominent American wars — is on track to be monumental.
