HBO Renews Girls For Fourth Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-season-4-renewed

If you can’t imagine life without seeing Lena Dunham’s titties on your television, you’re in luck. Even without airing an episode, HBO revealed at the Television Critics Association press tour that they’ve greenlit Girls for a fourth season. I’m hoping their bullish decision is based on the quality of upcoming episodes. IMHO, it suffered a sophomore slump. Meanwhile, the network announced Boardwalk Empire would end after its fifth season this Fall.

I can’t say I’m all that surprised with the network’s decision to renew Girls. Despite mediocre ratings, the “comedy” garners plenty of press and watercooler buzz. To boot, it’s earned multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

Just like Sex and the City, plenty of press show up for the Girls premiere party. Everyone wants to see what the girls are wearing. Much like their SATC counterparts, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke and Dunham, whether intentional or not, tend to dress like their on-screen personas. Williams is the stunning ingenue with Dunham usually in an unflattering ensemble. Check out what they wore for this year’s premiere below, along with the previous two years. Sound off on which girl has the best style in the comments section.

Luke Grimes Exits True Blood

Quel bummer!!! The addition of Luke Grimes to True Blood was one of the best things about last season. Next to Robert Kazinsky that is. HBO confirmed Grimes’ departure and revealed the role of James would be recast.

So why the exit? Naturally, I thought it was because of scheduling conflicts due to Luke snagging the role of Christian Grey’s brother in the Fifty Shades of Grey flick. Surprisingly, that’s not the case. Instead it’s ” due to the creative direction of the character,” according to the HBO statement.

An insider further reveals to TV Line that, “He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with [his Forever co-star] Deborah Ann Woll.” They add “But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”

That’s a shame. I’m definitely going to miss Grimes on the show. Hopefully, they hire an equally sexy actor to play the role. If Jessica and James are no longer together, does that mean a happily ever after ending for Jason Stackhouse and Jessica? I hope so. Weigh in below after checking out how fine Grimes is. I’m a sucker for the long blond hair.

HBO Debuts Another Trailer For Looking

In: Donovan, TV Shows

We’re less than a month away from the highly-anticipated premiere of HBO’s new gay series Looking. What better time for the network to release a new trailer. I really hope for everyone involved that the show doesn’t suck. With that being said, no matter how good the pilot is, there are such lofty expectations, piles of criticism (warranted or not) will undoubtedly follow. That’s how the gays roll ;) I’m optimistic it’ll be fantastic. Check out the latest clip below. As a side note, I’m loving the track playing in the background. It’s “Tightrope” by Walk The Moon. For those who don’t know the show’s premise, here’s the gist.

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.

Girls Adds The Boys To Official Season 3 Artwork

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-season-3-poster

Happy endings are so overrated. At least according to Lena Dunham. The official Season 3 poster for Girls has been released with the tagline, “Happily Whatever After.” I don’t need it to be a laugh a minute, but something perkier than last year’s extremely somber vibe would be nice. After all, it’s technically a comedy.

For the first time ever, HBO includes the show’s boys in the poster. You’d never see the Sex and the City gals with their men on the promotional artwork. Those bitches wanted the spotlight all for themselves ;) I have to say, I like that Hannah (Dunham) and crew are joined by Adam (Adam Driver) and Ray (Alex Karpovsky). My only complaint is that Elijah (Andrew Rannells) isn’t featured. He should get some attention now that he’s returning after The New Normal’s cancellation.

Season 3 of Girls will premiere with a special two-part event on Sunday, January 12th at 10 pm on HBO. Following that, the highly-anticipated new gay series, Looking premieres. I can’t wait.

What do you think of the poster? I love the whole 4 am disheveled after a major rager look? Don’t you? Sound off below.

Another day, another Looking-related post. I can’t help it. I’m really looking forward to HBO’s new series. Not only because it stars the adorable Jonathan Groff but also because it takes place in San Francisco. I spent my childhood summers there. It’s practically my second home.

After checking out HBO’s brand new extended trailer, I’m even more excited. Instead of regurgitating my previous posts about the upcoming gay dramedy, I’ve shared the official description from the network below, alongside the spankin’ new clip.

You can probably tell I’m really looking forward to Looking based on the number of posts published. Fingers crossed the HBO series meets the high expectations placed upon it.

The latest clip from the network gives us a behind the scenes look at the upcoming dramedy. Not only do we get insights from the main cast (Jonathan Groff, Frankie Alvarez and Murray Bartlett), but also executive producers Michael Lannan and Andrew Haigh. They discuss why filming on set in San Francisco was important and what we can expect from the show. Looking premieres January 19th, 2014 after the premiere of Girls. Check out video below.

Oprah Winfrey & Diablo Cody Are Moody Bitches

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

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.
