Oprah Winfrey & Diablo Cody Are Moody Bitches

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Nope, they’re both not on the rag. Rather the two are teaming up for a new show on HBO. Yup, you read that correctly. HBO and not OWN. Weird that Oprah Winfrey isn’t developing it for her own network. Strange, right?

The yet-untitled comedy will be based on Dr. Julie Holland’s upcoming book, Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You’re Taking, the Sex You’re Not Having, The Sleep You’re Missing and What’s Really Making You Crazy. Holy long title Batman. The book examines “the pros and cons of the drugs people are being offered as well as some surprising and highly effective natural therapies.”

Diablo Cody who burst onto the scene with Juno will pen the script and executive produce alongside Winfrey and her Harpo Films banner. There are no specified details on when the series will enter production, but with Oprah at the helm, I would assume it’s on the top of the list for HBO.

What do you think of this collaboration? Sound off below. For more details about the project, head over to Hollywood Reporter.

Check Out Girls’ Season 3 Trailer

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Technically, Girls is a comedy. Based on last season though, if you tuned in looking for laughs, you would’ve been sadly disappointed. The comedic moments were few and far in between. Am I alone in thinking Lena Dunham took it too dark and depressing? Hopefully, Dunham and her writers were in a better mood this year. Otherwise, I’m permanently breaking up with the HBO show.

In the newly-released trailer, Hannah (Dunham) is shacking up with Adam (Adam Driver) once again. Given the fact Christopher Abbott left the show, poor Marnie (Allison Williams) is toughing it out alone. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is still being Jessa, while Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Ray (Alex Karpovsky) are still driving each other crazy. If that wasn’t enough, Shosanna takes a page from Miley’s book and twerks her little heart out on some poor dead person’s tombstone. Classic Shos ;)

This year, we get a temporary change of scenery. As with most NYC-based shows like Gossip Girl and Sex and the City, the requisite trip to the Hamptons takes place. Check out the trailer below.

HBO Releases A New Trailer For Looking

In: Donovan, TV Shows
looking-gay-show-trailer

Threesomes, bath houses, open relationships, bears and a shirtless Jonathan Groff… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg in HBO’s second promo for its upcoming new gay series Looking. Unlike the first clip, this one has dialogue and gives a better (albeit brief) look into the San Francisco-based show. I have a feeling this is going to be a home run and the next, and dare I say it… better Queer As Folk.

Glee’s Jonathan Groff plays a video game developer named Patrick. While successful in his career, he’s completely the opposite in his personal life. Also part of the cast is Frankie Alvarez. He’ll play Patrick’s bestie named Augustin. He’s a politico with a really big ego and has a problem settling down. Murray Bartlett, Russell Tovey and Scott Bakula round out the cast.

Looking premieres January 19th, 2014 on HBO after Girls‘ third season premiere. I’m so excited. Check out the new series trailer below.

Ever since HBO greenlit a new comedy following the adventures of gay men living in San Francisco, I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting for the first official look. That day has finally arrived. Looking follows three thirty-something friends who grapple with all the options in contemporary life and the complexities of the modern gay experience. Think the gay version of Girls with a bit of Sex and the City added for good measure.

The series is produced by Sarah Condon (Bored to Death) and David Marshall Grant (Brothers and Sisters). Screenwriter Michael Lannan (Interior. Leather Bar. and Damages) penned the script. Check out the first teaser below. Looking debuts on HBO in January 2014.

Taking a page from the Sex and the City gals, Lena Dunham takes her hipster Brooklyn crew to the swanky Hamptons when the critically-acclaimed series returns. HBO recently released a new behind-the-scenes featurette which gives a preview of the third season. Girls returns on Sunday, January 12.

Base on the clip, we learn Hannah and Adam are happily together (for now). On the flipside, Marnie is heartbroken because Christopher Abbott left the show due to creative reasons taking his alter ego Charlie with him. As far as the other girls, Jessa is dealing with issues (quel surpris) and Shoshanna returns with her signature quirky hairstyles. For all you Elijah fans, Andrew Rannells is back on the HBO series. Hells yah!!! Check out the revealing featurette below.

It’s Not Porn… It’s HBO

In: Donovan, Random Reads, Videos

When did HBO become the subject of every online spoof? First, yesterday’s College Humor clip and now this one.

Directed by Alberto Belli (any relation to Willam Belli???), this one shows a bunch of actors telling their loved ones about their latest acting gig. As they describe their respective scenes, their big break sounds more like a scene from a cheesy skin flick. Obviously hearing the plot, their friends and family are disgusted and saddened they’ve resorted to porn. When it’s revealed that it’s for an HBO sex scene, all parties rejoice. With 108 nominations, it’s not porn… it’s HBO. Right?

Check out the cute clip below which features that sexy Peter Porte, a former Man Crush of mine, in all his shirtless glory. Try to figure out which HBO show’s steamy scenes they’re referencing.

I hope HBO executives take these ladies’ threats to heart. They’re tired of getting the shaft and instead want to see the shaft. HBO’s female viewers argue for a little more genital equality in a hilarious new clip from College Humor. They have a huge boner to pick with the network. They definitely have my support ;)

There’s no denying the female breasts and male full frontal nudity ratio is quite disparaging. On Girls alone, for every quick glimpse of Adam Driver’s butt, we get ten scenes of Lena Dunham showing off her titties. Props to her for feeling comfortable enough to show what a real body looks like, but how some dick from the boys.

HBO is a premium channel, therefore some premium dick is needed. On top of that wish list has to be True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten and Joe Manganiello and Game of ThronesKit Harington. Don’t you agree? Check out the clip below.

True Blood fans brace yourselves. The end of the supernatural series is coming soon. HBO announced the show’s upcoming seventh season will be its last.

Looks like Sookie (Anna Paquin) only has ten more episodes to sort herself out. Will she end with Bill, Eric, Alcide or someone else. According to showrunner Brian Buckner, Season 7 will be a love triangle between Bill, Alcide and Sookie, leaving Eric out in the cold… so to speak. If you saw the Season 6 finale, you know exactly what I mean.

Hopefully, the remaining episodes will include more homoerotic moments like the one Jason (Ryan Kwanten) participated in this year. That was beyond hot.

“‘True Blood’ has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” HBO president Michael Lombardo says in a statement. “Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey.”
