Boy, that HBO sure doesn't worry about burning a hole in its original programming slate, does it? In the same year that promises an end to 'True Blood,' 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'The Newsroom,' HBO has officially canceled future seasons of Stephen Merchant's dramedy 'Hello Ladies,' as well as Christopher Guest's 'Family Tree.' Do any of HBO's off-season shows have future seasons ahead?
Like 'Homeland' before it, HBO seems to have gotten wise to the fact that this past Sunday may have proven an altogether difficult spot to launch new programs, even after AMC's airing of the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, "Felina." To wit, the premium cable network has made available Kenny Powers' final(-ish) 'Eastbound & Down' season premiere, along with 'Office' co-creator Stephen Merchant's new dating comedy 'Hello Ladies'!
Last night proved big enough for HBO with the season 4 premiere of 'Boardwalk Empire' and the trailer debut of hotly anticipated crime drama 'True Detective,' but you didn't think they'd stop there, did you? The full lineup for fall 2013 and early 2014 gets the spotlight in new trailers for 'Girls' season 3, 'Treme' and 'Eastbound & Down''s final runs, Stephen Merchant's 'Hello Ladies' and more!
HBO's 'True Blood' has finally spurted out a premiere, while season 2 of 'Veep' prepares to come to a close, but the pay-cable network's summer has only just begun. The latest trailer for HBO's summer offerings provides new looks at upcoming episodes of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom,' 'Boardwalk Empire' and more, and we've got a first look at this all-new preview!
The HBO bounty continues! Along with new sneak peeks from 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' the 'Game of Thrones' season 3 finale brought about new teasers for the fourth (and final) season of 'Eastbound & Down,' Stephen Merchant's 'Hello Ladies,' an unrecognizable Larry David and Jon Hamm in the HBO film 'Clear History,' and even event series 'True Detective.' So, which are we most looking forward to seeing?
As HBO prepares for the event of the year in next Sunday's 'Game of Thrones' finale, the premium cable network has mapped out the rest of its major tentpoles as well. The fourth season of 'Boardwalk Empire' will debut mid-September, while Danny McBride fan-favorite 'Eastbound & Down' will return for its final eight episodes a few weeks later. HBO also announce a premiere for Stephen Merchant's 'Hello Ladies,' but when can viewers get in on the action?
No, not that 'The Office,' but close! Instead, the original 'The Office' co-creator Stephen Merchant is getting into business with HBO once more, working on a series order for 'Hello Ladies,' to be written, directed and headlined by Merchant himself. Picked up for a full eight episodes, the comedy also boasts former 'The Office' writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, but what story does the new series tell? Might it have any connectivity with Merchant's other HBO work?
