In The Bustle Booth With June Diane Raphael

Close your eyes and think of something that you love, and June Diane Raphael is probably involved with that thing. And, if she isn’t directly involved with it, then she at least knows a lot about it. She’s an actress, sure, and she made you spit out your coffee laughing in the Bachelor parody Burning Love, yes. But she’s also a writer, producer, podcaster, and overall enthusiastic person about the things she cares about, which is the coolest possible vibe for a person to have.

‘Grace And Frankie’: Marta Kauffman On Season 3, Dolly Parton & Why It’s Great To Be A Woman

“The show isn’t about politics, and I don’t want it to be topical,” says Grace and Frankie co-creator Marta Kauffman about her Jane Fonda- and Lily Tomlin-starring series that launches its third season March 24 on Netflix. “Once you make it topical it gets very, very difficult to have it continue to air at all times and not feel dated,” the Friends executive producer adds. “I’m in the business of entertaining people.”

Those paintings on Grace & Frankie were done by a real artist

Grace & Frankie stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, but there is another star of the series whose face has never been seen onscreen. That person is Nancy Rosen, the real-life artist who provides all of the paintings on the series for Tomlin’s character, who is a painter and art teacher.

The Chicago, Illinois-based Rosen has provided paintings for every season of the Netflix series, but her love of art goes back to her childhood. “I’ve been painting since I was five,” Rosen told Variety.

‘Grace And Frankie’ Is Changing The Way We Look At Older Women’s Sexual Desires

Grace and Frankie Season 3 premiered on Netflix on March 24 with legendary actors Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) together once again on-screen. The titular characters have been through a lot on the show — divorce, dating, making Yam lube — and Grace and Frankie Season 3 unapologetically portrays women’s sexuality. The new season of the comedy series shows the two women in their 70s having active sex lives, embracing masturbation, and starting a business making sex toys aimed at older women. And it’s so great to see Grace and Frankie’s sex lives take center stage as a major storyline, rather than being played for laughs.

An art show puts Grace And Frankie’s character-driven comedy on display

Grace And Frankie’s third season jumps into the messy dynamics brought out in the final altercation between its titular characters and their families at the end of season two. Last season, Grace and Frankie were at their most fraught, pulled apart by Grace’s drinking problem. But the death of their dear mutual friend Babe brought them back together again, only to realize that they’re still each other’s greatest allies and advocates: Their ex-husbands and children all take them for granted and underestimate them. So Grace and Frankie were thrust back together again, deciding to turn their unlikely friendship into an unlikely business partnership. The third season opens on this new chapter in their relationship. Grace and Frankie are back and making vibrators for older women.

Everything You Missed On Season 2 Of Grace & Frankie

Mark your calendars, because Grace and Frankie is coming back to Netflix on March 24.
For all of you who have yet to be converted to Netflix’s greatest gal pals, Grace and Frankie is about two septuagenarians thrust together in a pretty unexpected life change. Grace (Jane Fonda) is an uptight, martini-drinking, country clubber who founded a successful beauty company. Frankie (Lily Tomlin) is her polar opposite, a free-wheeling artist who believes in the power of moon cycles and the 1960s. The only thing these women have in common is that their husbands are law partners. And then, at the series’ start, what they have in common is that their husbands are leaving them for each other. Suddenly, these lifelong nemeses are in the same boat.

Grace and Frankie episodes to screen at Tribeca Film Festival

Tribeca Film Festival continues its expansion across platforms with Tribeca Tune In, a new section of TV programming that this year will include premieres of the History Channel’s upcoming redux of “Roots” with Forest Whitaker and Laurence Fishburne, TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” with Ellen Barkin, OWN’s “Greenleaf” with Oprah Winfrey and Comedy Central’s “Time Traveling Bong.”

The festival, now in its 15th year, has in recent years made a point of growing its programming to include storytelling distributed across multiple kinds of screens. The new TV initiative stands alongside several new-media showcases that include Storyscapes, a subset of the festival’s main slate encompassing digital and multiplatform work. (Last year the festival presented a handful of TV offerings including episodes of “Mr. Robot” and “Inside Amy Schumer.”)

Winfrey will turn up at the screening of megachurch drama “Greenleaf,” in which she plays a recurring role. Other shows getting pre-broadcast bows include HBO’s crime drama “The Night Of,” with John Turturro, and “The Night Manager,” the AMC-BBC co-production starring Tom Hiddleston (for which Hiddleston and director Susanne Bier will appear at the fest). Episodes of Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” and “Chef’s Table” as well as the season-three finale of Comedy Central’s “Broad City” will also screen as part of Tribeca Tune In.
