It’s been years since we’ve considered the cast of AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ in the market for a new gig, but with Matthew Weiner’s period drama coming to a close after seven final episodes, one of its biggest stars is headed to a new agency. Christina Hendricks has officially joined the pilot cast of ‘Almost Famous’ creator Cameron Crowe’s Showtime ‘Roadies,’ trading Sterling-Cooper for something with a bit more edge.
Over the summer Showtime committed to a pilot order for ‘Almost Famous’ creator Cameron Crowe’s new concert industry dramedy ‘Roadies,’ alongside Bad Robot and executive producer J.J. Abrams, though we haven’t heard much since. Now, the pilot has reportedly set sights on Luke Wilson and Imogen Poots for two of its leading characters, but who might they play?
The last look at 'Shameless' season 5 gave the sinful Showtime series some new footage to tide us over until January 11, but that doesn't stop the Gallaghers from serving up a fresh round of debauchery in the newest sneak peek. See the 'Shameless' crew take on both corporate and counter-culture in the first official season 5 poster, as well as a brand-new teaser with fresh footage and new looks!
Showtime's 'Homeland' has been chugging along in its fourth season sans Brody (well, almost), just as critics have continually raved about adultery drama 'The Affair,' and fans of either should have a bright and sunny 2015. Showtime has officially renewed Carrie Mathison and co. to return for a fifth season next year, continuing its illicit 'Affair' for a second season as well.
Though only October, 2015 will soon be upon us, and with it the return of Showtime Sunday favorites like 'House of Lies' and 'Shameless.' And where the latter skewed a bit darker in season 4 (despite moving to the comedy section for Emmy purposes), the first full trailer for 'Shameless' season 5 sees Fiona and the Gallaghers returning to their destructive ways, with a few new (and returning) faces plenty visible.
The current season of 'Homeland' has been markedly improved by the absence of Damian Lewis (sorry, it's true!), but that wouldn't stop us from welcoming the erstwhile Nicholas Brody back to Showtime. And so it goes, that Emmy-winner Lewis will partner with Oscar-winner Paul Giamatti for a new Showtime Wall Street drama 'Billions,' and they've already got our money.
Among the countless sadness that arose with Philip Seymour Hoffman's passing earlier this year, Showtime was forced to shelve its critically-lauded pilot 'Happyish,' following rave reviews for Hoffman's central role. Now, the network has officially opted to re-shoot the dramedy series' pilot, with Steve Coogan in the lead.
A 'Twin Peaks' revival has been something of a long-running joke since the show's 1991 ABC cancellation, with rumors emerging of a return every so often for the last 25 years, but you may want to put down that damn good coffee. Showtime has officially confirmed that David Lynch will return us to 'Twin Peaks' in 2016 for new episodes, picking up where the cult series last left off in the early '90s.
Showtime may have said a temporary farewell to 'Masters of Sex' and 'Ray Donovan' with last night's season 2 finales, but Sunday powerhouse 'Homeland' will begin anew in two weeks time with its October 5 season 4 premiere. To wit, the first clip from two-hour premiere opener "Drone Queen" has arrived, offering a bit of insight into Carrie's new foreign objective abroad, and what Corey Stoll's character has to do with it all.
Now that 'Masters of Sex' and 'Ray Donovan' are winding down their second seasons (don't worry, they'll be back next year), all eyes are on 'Homeland' season 4 to reboot itself and return to Emmy-winning roots with an all-new story. Yet another, even more in-depth trailer for season 4 has arrived, begging the question, can't Corey Stoll be in everything?
