6 Questions with “THE APPROVAL MATRIX” Showrunner Rory Albanese

Article: 6 Questions with “THE APPROVAL MATRIX” Showrunner Rory Albanese

SundanceTV’s new series, inspired by New York magazine’s pop culture roundup, is premiering Mon., Aug. 11 at 11/10c. To prep, we spoke to showrunner Rory Albanese (The Daily Show) about “showbiz,” working with host Neal Brennan and how it feels to win an Emmy.

Q: How does THE APPROVAL MATRIX show expand on the original New York magazine back-page grid?

A: Mainly because the original version is in a magazine and this one is on the TV. Also, this version is hosted by the hysterically funny and super duper brilliant Neal Brennan, and I don’t use the term “super duper” lightly.

Q: What are you most excited about on the show?

A: I’m most excited about the field pieces that I was a correspondent in. Because this will without a doubt be my one-way ticket to super duper fame and a lifestyle equivalent to that of Leonardo DiCaprio. In fact after these shows air, I’m guessing Leo and I will become best friends and spend all of our free time on yachts covered in models. Thank you, SundanceTV, for turning my life into one of riches and b*tches. (Apparently I use the term “super duper” more than I realized).

Q: How did you meet host Neal Brennan? What makes you a good team?

6 Questions with “THE APPROVAL MATRIX” Host Neal Brennan

Article: 6 Questions with “THE APPROVAL MATRIX” Host Neal Brennan

The host of SundanceTV’s new series — inspired by New York magazine’s back page pop culture roundup — talks about some of the most surprising moments that happened during the shoot and his predilection for lowbrow brilliant news.

Q: What are you most excited about on the show?
A: I like all six episodes, but I’d say my little disagreement with Jon Stewart is interesting. Also, I told Willie Geist that he looks like a stock photo of a white person. So that was nice.

Q: How did you choose the topics that are featured on the episodes? Do you have a favorite?
A: Rory Albanese, Michael Hirschorn and I batted around a bunch. Ultimately, it’s what subjects could sustain a 45 minute discussion. My favorite [episode] is probably “America’s Hall Monitors” about the snitch culture pervading our glorious nation.

Top Ten Reasons “Secretary” Beats “50 Shades of Grey”

Article: Top Ten Reasons “Secretary” Beats “50 Shades of Grey”

You’ve got to give the Fifty Shades of Grey books credit. The erotic trilogy by E.L. James has single-handedly made BDSM mainstream (now everyone knows what a safe word is), been a boon to the sex toy industry (hello, love beads!), and improved the sex lives of many a long-married couple (a chapter a day will keep the couple’s therapist away!). But that doesn’t mean the series is without its faults, or that there aren’t better depictions of BDSM relationships in popular culture or at the very least, one better depiction.
