HBO’s Veep is known for its twisted sense of humor, its great ensemble cast and its willingness to look at political compromises in a witty and cynical manner. Now, HBO has plans in the works to amp up one of these qualities for Season 4, adding to its great ensemble cast by signing on a former guest actor for a series regular role
Well, one thing is clear, Valerie Cherish does a terrible Al Pacino impersonation. The latest teaser for The Comeback has Lisa Kudrow's TV Star character spontaneously quoting The Godfather, only she doesn't seem to recall what movie the line is from. And her Pacino impression isn't very good. But that's kind of what we love about Valerie. Her kind of funny is always just a little bit off.
HBO and Showtime execs have recognized the appeal of on-demand streaming services, as evidenced by HBO Go’s Sunday night Internet implosions and Showtime Anytime's gradual rise in popularity, but those sites are still tied to consumers' TV services. Will we ever live in a world where Americans who don’t own a TV can watch True Detective on their own separate HBO Go account?
True Detective is coming off of a tightly written and critically acclaimed first season. It makes sense that HBO would want True Detective Season 2. Here's everything the world knows about the follow-up...
Maybe it’s because HBO strives for a platform that is higher quality than a lot of the network’s out there. Or maybe the network is just really good at marketing. Whatever the reason, HBO announced premiere dates for returning drama The Newsroom, as well as comedies The Comeback and Getting On this morning, and I got a little giddy inside.
For years, the prospect of David Fincher taking the reins of a dark neo-noir has dangled in front of the eyes of the filmmaker’s fans, never to materialize. If we all dare raise our hopes to gargantuan levels once more, there’s a chance that Fincher will be teaming up with the iconic crime novelist James Ellroy to develop a gritty period drama, with HBO as their destination of choice.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has made a habit of pushing relevant topics in a manner that is funny and manages to work for a platform that only airs once a week. He made waves recently when tackling the net neutrality argument, and this week he covered the equally controversial topic of student loans.
Despite what the Emmys would have you believe, Boardwalk Empire was easily one of the most 'Outstanding Drama Series' last season. Maybe, the most outstanding. Why dwell in the past? It seems fitting since the first installment of the bootlegging series' fifth season, "Golden Days for Boys and Girls," is also preoccupied with looking back. It's legacy time.
I can’t imagine anyone expected “The Prodigal Son Returns” to be a marathon of joyful surface conversations, and it was indeed yet another exercise in uncharacteristically enjoyable drama eked out through surreality, violence and questionable coincidences. Just like your grandmother used to make.
Boardwalk Empire has always been a series about enterprise and chance, about men and women, but mostly men, and the careers that lead them on certain paths. Tonight, HBO premiered the fifth and final season of the acclaimed drama, and just a few minutes into the first episode of the season, the show put together an iconic and historically-tied scene that might just be the most mentally disturbing thing I’ve ever witnessed on television.
We are only one day away from HBO premiering the final season of its critically acclaimed drama Boardwalk Empire. The subscription cable network has already released plenty of footage for the final installation, but this weekend HBO released a clip that will make fans think about life after prohibition and highlights the time hop leading into Season 5.
The first directorial candidate for True Detective's Season 2 is reportedly Justin Lin, best known for his work on the Fast & Furious franchise, for which he directed four of the six previously released films. Does this mean True Detective is going to have more explosions and massive highway set pieces?
Have you got soul? Are you a sex machine? You’ll still never be James Brown. But you can get to know the soul superstar a little better with Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, a documentary from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side).
We are a long way off from Game of Thrones’ Season 5. Still, HBO has released plenty of news about the upcoming season of the series, including brand new cast members and information about Cersei’s long-awaited nude scene. Now, one character has come out to discuss who may not be in Season 5.
HBO is usually extremely careful about what marketing information it lets out into the universe, but sometimes the subscription cable network has a little trouble reining in its creative talent. This week, Flight of The Conchords leading man Jermaine Clement spoke out about a 4-episode project he has been working on with HBO recently. But will that have anything to do with the music maker's former show?
