HBO Gives Musical Comedy From Amy Poehler’s Company Consideration

HBO Gives Musical Comedy From Amy Poehler’s Company Consideration

Not much news to go on here, but we wanted to give this project attention because it is a potential series not seen on HBO. Amy Poehler’s production company is developing a musical-comedy for the pay channel entitled EDISON. The last musical comedy was 2007’s FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS. EDISON is said to be a half-hour dark musical comedy about John a 40-year-old real estate broker who dreams of living life in the big city but remains stuck in his small hometown of Edison, NJ. John is already cast. The role will be played by John Roberts (pictured, the voice of Linda in Bob’s Burgers – yes he voices a woman). It is reported that...

HBOWatch has been tracking back since June 2016 that Adam McKay (of EASTBOUND AND DOWN, pictured) was working on SUCCESSION. We again announced in December that it received a pilot order. To help refresh your mind of the project here is a reprint of that last post: It is the story of the Roy family. This family is a giant global media force to be reckoned with despite all their internal and personal problems it has.

HBO’s Spring 2017 Lineup Locked In

HBO’s Spring 2017 Lineup Locked In

As is the norm at HBO every drama hour is coupled with a set of comedy half-hours to make a Sunday night a complete package. 2017 is a slightly different schedule than the past few years have been; that is mainly because of GAME OF THRONES’ move and the arrival of limited series like THE YOUNG POPE and BIG LITTLE LIES. Here is our opportunity to see which shows are filling the calendar next. The comedy duo did not break up this time around. SILICON VALLEY and VEEP are still back to back. The dramatic hour is reserved for the final season of THE LEFTOVERS. HBO very simply states: SILICON VALLEY – HBO has confirmed an April debut for...

Movies on HBO: Central Intelligence

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. Nevertheless, we draw your attention to this film as it debuts on HBO on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11 at 8:00pm Man, Johnson will try anything, right? And as for Hart, well it seems that he’ll team up with anyone. They give it a go as a duo in this action comedy that also offers a couple other actors you might recognize.

But just what gets all these...
