HBO’s September 2015 schedule is finally taking shape. While there may not be any confirmed “flagship dramas” coming our way this fall HBO has just announced three smaller series that will debut instead. First up is Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s documentary that chronicles how a new director gets a movie made. Here’s how HBO describes it:
The documentary series PROJECT GREENLIGHT, chronicling the search for a first-time director and exploring the filmmaking process, launches its eight-episode season SUNDAY, SEPT. 13 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT). Spanning the entire filmmaking process, it takes a revealing, uncensored look at the challenges facing a novice director. The show begins with a digital competition, following the winner from pre-production and casting through principal photography and post-production. Executive producers of the new season include Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who were executive producers of the previous two seasons on HBO in 2001 and 2003.
If you didn’t catch the premiere date for Project Greenlight that’s September 13th. That means it will butt up against another mini-series: “Show Me A Hero” which debuts in August.
