In spite of their increasing pedigree, we haven't paid much attention to Cinemax's original series, but the latest additions to the pay cable network's upcoming drama series 'Quarry' have proven far too tempting to ignore.

The World' babe Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined Cinemax's 'Quarry' in her first regular TV role since rising to fame, joining 'The Avengers' and 'Thor' star Stellan Skarsgard, among others.

While many of us were disheartened to learn that 'True Blood' creator Alan Ball would be stepping down as showrunner for the sixth season of HBO's bloody drama, the news was tempered by the fact that Ball would swiftly return to TV to helm Cinemax's pulpy thriller 'Banshee.'

So what can we learn from the first teaser for 'Banshee'?

Clever, we know.  We'd more or less forgotten that the 'Transporter' coming to Cinemax as a 12-episode TV series was even a thing, considering the last major news we heard was the show casting Chris Vance as its eponymous driver in May of 2011, followed by an on-set injury and a number of creative overhauls.  Even the release of the series' first trailer seems curiously quite all things considered, but without further ado...'Transporter!'  It has cars.
