In many TV Film shows there's this soft look. How do you create that? I mean Is it just a bunch of diffusion? [attachment=5647:AI_Artif...gence_09.jpg]

That scene has haze added to it. That's how you get the light rays streaking through the picture. You really don't have to soften the light to get that effect. The haze helps soften the light and you need hard lights if you want those streaks. It does look like the boy's face has a fill light on it considering how her face is kinda dark and it's very backlit.

There is a strong hard, bright backlight through smoke, and a soft light coming from the right side of frame. Smoke tends to soften an image, but in this case, there is also lens diffusion as well (the movie was mostly shot through nets and occasionally other filters like ProMist.)

You can see the use of the net filter here in the lens flares:

While in this scene, a ProMist filter was used:
