mass producer

HAWAII FIVE-0 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streams on CBS All Access; Magnum P.I. follows at 9 p.m. ET/PT. MacGyver premieres midseason on CBS and streams on CBS All Access. BEING A TELEVISION showrunner is a notoriously arduous and time-consuming discipline. So being a showrunner for three shows simultaneously is unheard of. Unless, that is, you’ve heard of Peter Lenkov, who does the heavy lifting on the successful reboots of Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver, and Magnum P.I “I definitely wake up thinking about three shows, and trying for them to be three very different shows,” says the Canadian-born producer and writer, whose career began when he wrote the script for the 1993 film Demolition Man, starring Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. “But I have a triage mentality,” he continues.…

date nights

REMEMBER HOW IT USED to be? Your show was on at whatever-o-clock, and that meant an entire to-do list to be checked off by whatever-o-clock minus one second. I’ve been a fan of appointment television since my older sister and I would finish our homework and shower by 8 p.m. on Monday nights so we could snuggle in one well-worn armchair and watch Little House on the Prairie. When Michael Landon smiled at the camera, I felt like he was looking right at me and saying, “Half-pint, you got here right on time.” I have to admit in the [redacted] years since those Little House nights, I haven’t always embraced organizing my life according to what’s on air. Plans run late, deadlines must be met, life happens. I’ll watch it later,…

royal lines

JUDGING FROM THE subject matter, Candice Carty-Williams’ international best-seller, Queenie, wouldn’t seem to have the makings of an occasionally humorous read: The eponymous heroine, newly single in London, has a series of terrible one-night stands, made all the more terrible by men who see her as a sexual novelty. “It’s dehumanizing,” says Carty-Williams of her character’s experiences. “So many of us [black women] are looking for love, and all we’re presented with is, ‘Can I come around and have sex with you?’” But despite the serious topics Queenie explores, the book—which was recently released in paperback—is indeed very, very funny. Explains the author, “My family motto is, ‘If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.’” Watch! talked to Carty-Williams about bad men, great girlfriends, and the joy of libraries. You’ve said Queenie was a…

casa de sasha

FOR HOLIDAY PARTIES, I want my entrance to be like a grand procession: Cleopatra coming at ya! The Egyptian empress (and Elizabeth Taylor’s cinematic take on her) is my style guru. I adore the ostentatious, powerful statements in what she wore. Personally, I’m tired of the same glitter ball, jingle bells look this time of year, so I’m staging my own Cleopatra revival by racking up new ankhs, golden serpents, moiré headbands with pendants, and elaborate beaded bib collars. Ancient Egypt provides us with a window into aristocratic style, and lucky for me, a semiprecious scarab cocktail ring requires only a hand, not a specific body type. You can go luxe with this trend (Chanel’s limited-edition bejeweled evening bag from the Métiers d’art collection) or budget (a Jan Michaels serpent…
