Pasadena, CA – The networks of Viacom, A+E and National Geographic filled the first full day of the 2016 Winter Television Critics Association tour with presentations for a dizzying array of programs that illustrated the breadth and diversity of cable television schedules today. It is not unusual for the cable days at these twice-yearly gatherings to cause a sort of psychic, only-at-TCA whiplash for the critics, reporters and bloggers who attend them, and that was certainly the case yesterday. A prime example of this occurred at approximately 3 p.m. West Coast time, when a panel featuring executive producer Harvey Weinstein and the impressive cast of the upcoming six-hour adaptation of the intimidating literary classic “War & Peace” (set to run simultaneously on A+E, Lifetime and History) was immediately followed by a session with Khloe Kardashian (pictured above), the star and executive producer of the upcoming FYI talk show “Kocktails with Khloe.” Interestingly, within the context of a TCA day, the two panels were equally engaging. (Both series will debut later this month.)
