Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO this fall for a new comedy. This time around, however, she isn’t looking for love armed with gal pals and Jimmy Choos. Instead, it’s all about divorce. The 51-year-old actress just shared the first teaser for her new show via Instagram.

“A long time coming. And a great thrill that my friends @hbo allowed me to share with you the official FIRST look and just a wee appetizer of #DivorceHBO,” Parker wrote in the caption.

The half-hour comedy, aptly titled Divorce, finds Parker playing a woman named Frances who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought. Thomas Haden Church plays her husband with Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam and Tracy Letts also starring.

The 10-episode first season kicks off on HBO this fall. Check out the teaser trailer below.

HBO Cancels Vinyl After Previously Renewing It

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It appears HBO had buyer’s remorse. The network previously renewed Vinyl for a second season, less than a week after the 70s-set drama premiered. The news follows the exit of showrunner Terence Winter, who left in April reportedly due to creative differences.

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl,” HBO said in a statement. “Obviously, this was not an easy decision. We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”

looking-movie

I was so bummed when HBO’s Looking was not renewed for a third season. The acting, characters, storyline, music… it was perfect. As a gay man in my early 30’s living in a city, it was much more relatable to me than any other gay characters on television at the moment. Thankfully, we at least get a movie to wrap things up and it’s coming out as an HBO Special on Saturday, July 23rd.

Setting the scene for where the film picks up, Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is back in San Francisco after spending some time in Colorado. Upon his return, he realizes he still needs to figure out his love life… and whether that involves Richie (Raúl Castillo) or Kevin (Russell Tovey) I have no idea. Meanwhile, Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) is about to commit to Eddie (Daniel Franzese) but he’s terrified that he’ll hurt him in the end. Dom (Murray Bartlett) and Doris (Lauren Weedman) are in the trailer as well, but not much is revealed about what’s going on with those characters.

Check out the trailer below!

HBO network president Michael Lombardo is a man of his word. When he canceled Looking after two short seasons, he cushioned the blow to fans by promising a wrap-up movie to tie up loose ends. The network just revealed when Jonathan Groff and company will return.

Looking: The Movie will air Saturday, July 23. Ahead of that, the film will premiere, fittingly enough, at the Frameline Film Festival, taking place in San Francisco from June 16-26, where it will close the festival. Read below to find out what we can expect.

For any actor, having a steady gig is reward enough. It’s especially great when the gig is a hit show beloved by millions. Apparently that wasn’t enough good fortune to befall Game of Thrones actress Carice von Houten.

After reading her interview with Entertainment Weekly, I’ve concluded she’s probably the luckiest girl on the HBO set. Who knew resurrecting someone from the dead could be so titillating. The 39-year-old reveals she washed Kit Harington’s practically naked body at least 50 times while filming last episode.

“It took forever to resurrect him, forever!” says van Houten. “It was such an important scene, we shot it from so many angles. I think I washed his body 50 times. There would be a lot of people who would be very jealous, including my mother and sister. I was joking about that with him – ‘if only my mother could see this’ – and he loved that.”

How lucky is that little beyotch? Read more about that resurrection over at EW.com.

The first season of The Leftovers took place in the fictional town of Mapleton, New York three years after the “Departure.” For its sophomore run, the action moved to another fictional town named Jarden, Texas. Once again, producers are changing locations, but this time, they’re heading overseas.

Beyonce’s Lemonade Available On iTunes

After her highly-anticipated HBO special premiered, LEMONADE, immediately became available for streaming and sale exclusively on TIDAL. As much as I love Beyonce, I didn’t cave in and sign up for a free 30-day trial. Wise move on my part. Just 24 hours later, Bey’s 6th studio album appeared on iTunes and unlike her previous album initially, tracks were available to purchase individually. With regards to streaming though, it appears LEMONADE will stream “exclusively in perpetuity” over at TIDAL.

Did you watch LEMONADE on HBO this past weekend? I did and even had a few people over to catch it. While I enjoyed her ambitious feminist feature film with beautifully-shot images of Afro-American Southern imagery, voodoo visuals and futuristic moments, I was a little underwhelmed by the music. IMHO, there wasn’t a single track that screamed instant radio hit. With that being said “Hold Up, “”6 Inch” feature The Weeknd, “Daddy Lessons” and “Sorry” I instantly liked.

HBO Renews Game Of Thrones, Veep & Silicon Valley

A few days ahead of their respective season premieres, HBO announced its renewing Game of Thrones, Veep and Silicon Valley for another year. That means a seventh season for the fantasy drama and sixth and fourth for the Julia Louis-Dreyfus show and tech comedy respectively.

Noticeably absent from the announcement was exactly how many episodes Game of Thrones Season 7 will air. Just recently, show producers hinted at shortened seasons.

“I think we’re down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We’re heading into the final lap,” showrunner David Benioff told Variety. “That’s the guess, though nothing is yet set in stone, but that’s what we’re looking at.”

Which of the three renewals has you most excited. Sound off below.
