MIKE JUDGE PRESENTS: TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS On Cinemax

Just this past Friday, September 22 to be exact, Cinemax kicked off an animated series that gives a holler out to country music.

MIKE JUDGE PRESENTS: TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS chronicles the tales of some of country music’s most legendary artists when the series begins its eight-episode season, exclusively on CINEMAX Friday nights at 10:30pm ET, followed by other half-hour episodes on subsequent Fridays at the same time.

Cinemax’s QUARRY Cancelled After One Season

Cinemax’s QUARRY Cancelled After One Season

I don’t know if you watched Season One of QUARRY on Cinemax, but it will be your last one. Series co-creator Michael D. Fuller made a rather lengthy announcement explaining the kibosh. Here it a good portion of it: “And so, after a protracted and agonizing process, we have final confirmation that Quarry will not be returning to television. There were several factors that contributed to the show’s ultimate fate, but a regime change at HBO and a re-(re?)-branding at Cinemax were of particular significance; we attempted to find another home for the show but were unable to do so. By virtually every metric (ratings, critical response) the...

Cinemax Gets Mike Judge’s Return to Animation

Do any of you remember “heh-heh” Beavis and Butthead? Perhaps you recall Hank Hill and his Arles, Texas brood in King of the Hills? Mike Judge, long before his stint as co-creator of HBO’s SILICON VALLEY, generated these mentioned animated works for MTV and Fox, respectively.

The work is entitled MIKE JUDGE PRESENTS: TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS and is slated for an eight-episode run (at least to start).
