The inherent secrecy of The Last Man on Earth gave its first season a few ups and downs, though those directions look increasingly literal by the Will Forte-starring, Lord and Miller-produced comedy’s first Season 2 poster. Carol and Phil (and all his sporting good friends) hit the road in our first look at Season 2, but what might it mean for the rest of the cast?

When Lorne Michaels is producing a movie, it’s probably pretty easy to get a bunch of former and current SNL cast members to show up for cameo appearances. Michaels produced the upcoming indie comedy Staten Island Summer, which the trailer sells as a solid coming of age tale even without all those SNL cameos — though they probably won’t hurt.

HBO Sports is best known for its documentaries and boxing match offerings, but the company is doing something a little different with 7 Days in Hell: it's a mockumentary about an epic tennis match between two intense rivals, played by Andy Samberg and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington. And like a good mockumentary, this one seems to mine some great comedy from its authenticity.

SXSW Review: ‘7 Days in Hell’

If comedy filmmakers weren’t already jealous of their television brethren, they will be after they watch HBO’s 7 Days in Hell, which uses the cable network’s permissive attitude toward adult material to tell envelope-pushing jokes that no mainstream movie could ever hope to get past the MPAA. 7 Days in Hell is funny enough to play in a multiplex (even if, at 50 minutes, it’s not quite feature length), but its hilariously vulgar jokes would definitely saddle it with a box-office poisoning NC-17 rating. On HBO, though, anything goes, and thank goodness because director Jake Syzmanski and writer Murray Miller were able to produce a mockumentary that giddilypulses with a sense of absolute freedom — freedom from content restrictions and freedom to experiment with weird strains of comedy that would never fly in a mainstream Hollywood film.
