HBO’s geopolitical comedy The Brink seemed somewhat touch-and-go for a bit, as Dwayne Johnson’s Ballers picked up a Season 2 renewal, while Brink’s all-star cast of Tim Robbins, Jack Black and Aasif Mandvi drew closer to expiring contracts. That said, The Brink made it to the very edge with a Season 2 pickup, confirming its return for 2016.

Remember Quentin Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown,' in which Pam Grir plays a flight attendant wrapped up in a scheme to smuggle drugs into the US? Well, what were two of those scheming bad guys, the ones played by Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro, like when they were younger? What kind of shenanigans would they get themselves into? 'Life of Crime' tries to answer that question, and the first trailer is full of laughs and semi-failed schemes.

HBO will shed an impressive amount of its programming over the course of 2014, airing final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies,' so it isn't a surprise to see a star-studded pilot getting the fast track. To that end, HBO's Jay Roach-directed geopolitical comedy 'The Brink,' starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins, has already been given a series order.

In 1994, directors Joel and Ethan Coen teamed up with their pal Sam Raimi for 'The Hudsucker Proxy.' Co-written by Raimi, the film follows inexperienced small-town business school graduate Norville Barnes (Tim Robbins), who is suddenly placed at the head of Hudsucker Industries when the company's founder commits suicide.

Insane from the moment we first heard about the project, IFC's 'The Spoils of Babylon' has released yet another star-studded trailer promoting its epic miniseries drama of love, betrayal, oil and a psychotic Haley Joel Osment. Oh yes, it's that weird.

We'll be honest, we had no idea what to make of Will Ferrell's upcoming IFC miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon,' crafting a fake soap-opera-esque narrative around such incredible star power as Kristen Wiig, Tobey Maguire, Jessica Alba and Ferrell himself, among others. Now, the first star-studded trailer for the project has emerged, and if anything, we're even more confused.
