THE YOUNG POPE Drops Tease and Debuts in Europe Before HBO Screening

The limited series THE YOUNG POPE with Jude Law is a collaborative production. HBO has made it in joint with the two big production houses across Europe – Sky and Canal+. Together, under the care of famed Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, the eight-episode series for a home audience. However, before appearing on HBO later this year it is slated to air across Europe, including the U. K. and Ireland first.

HBO promotional video, but an official trailer for its European...

Bill Maher Slated For REAL TIME Specials for the GOP/Dem Conventions

Bill Maher Slated For REAL TIME Specials for the GOP/Dem Conventions

We are all quite familiar that Bill Maher likes to rant on his political bent. He has done so now into his fourteenth season of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER. He ups the ante this year, but not with a traditional stand-up routine, as he has done on occasion. This year he is creating special shows timed with both the Republican and Democratic conventions. Oh, Boy!  Essentially, he will be reporting live for the East Coast after each night of the televised conventions being held in Cleveland, Ohio and Philadelphia Pennsylvania, respectively. What follows is the detailed Press Release regarding the...

Changing of Command at HBO and what It Could Mean

Changing of Command at HBO and what It Could Mean

Late last month big business news occurred at HBO. Since most of you just want your GAME OF THRONES news we didn’t report it here, but Michael Lombardo has stepped down as President of Programming to be replaced by Casey Bloys in that office. That title means that the person who holds it oversees all aspects of content for the channel. That means at the end of the day that HBO Films president Len Amato, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax programming president Kary Antholis; HBO Sports executive vice president Peter Nelson and HBO Documentaries and Families president Sheila Nevins answer to that office. Only above the President of Programming is...

Game of Thrones: “No One”

Game of Thrones: “No One”

This week’s episode of Game of Thrones, like many this season thus far, has set the stage for the great battles to come. Yes, some ended quite anticlimactically, namely the siege at Riverrun, Arya versus the Waif, and even the highly anticipated “Cleganebowl” between The Mountain and The Hound, thanks to Tommen’s elimination of trial by combat. Still, we got a taste of the battle at Meereen this week, complete with fire-wielding catapults, and lest we forget the White Walkers ominously planning their attack in the backdrop. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s episode, “No One,” and how it will likely impact the schemes and...

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Pied Piper is LIVE! Not only that, but it’s become hugely successful. We start off the episode with a Bloomberg interview of Erlich Bachman (henceforth known as Erlich Blachman according to the White Pages and Google) and Richard Hendricks. At first glance, it seems odd that Erlich is trying to steal the spotlight, especially since we know that he sold his 10% of the company. Why would he want to draw attention to himself? The only reason I could think of was Meinertzhagen’s Haversack. I guess it worked because nobody suspects that he technically has nothing to do with the company anymore. It seems to be working because it’s...

Watch HBO’s “The Night of” Miniseries Online, Streaming or on TV

“Pakistani-American college student Nasir “Naz” Khan, who lives with his parents in Queens, NY, takes his father’s taxi to go a party in Manhattan. But what starts as a perfect night for Naz becomes a nightmare when he’s arrested for murder.” Does that interest you? It should. HBO has long been working on this mini series and we’re happy it’s finally seeing the light of day. It’s an eight part mini series so it won’t last forever, but what does these days? Here’s a trailer if you need more convincing to catch this on HBO Go or HBO Now streaming next month (July...

Buzz From The HARD KNOCKS 2016 Press Conference

Buzz From The HARD KNOCKS 2016 Press Conference

HBO’s HARD KNOCKS is an extraordinary sports series with the fastest turnaround from filming to airtime for any show of its kind. But it is not like HBO and NFL Films hasn’t had years of practice now. But, as the forthcoming clip states this coming season, HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE LOS ANGELES RAMS, is like no other season of the show. Let’s take a moment to recap the series to date. Season One (2001) gave us the Baltimore Ravens and a look at key veterans seeing their last games of play; Season Two (2002) had the Dallas Cowboys when Emmitt Smith was still playing; after a few years off it was then time for Season Three...

Marvel’s SCARLET Comes To Cinemax Not HBO!

Marvel’s SCARLET Comes To Cinemax Not HBO!

Nothing is confirmed to series yet, but the Marvel property SCARLET is in early development at HBO’s sister channel. One of the Marvel Comics gurus, Brian Michael Bendis, attended the to talk all things Marvel and let out the following news. “I do a book called Scarlet which is soon to be announced also in our universe of television. Not announced yet, but HBO.” [It is] “at the earliest stage,” [but that] “the team around it…will be announced as soon as all are on the same page.” A number of outlets jumped on the story all declaring that HBO was developing the Marvel content. That is true, but not quite. The SCARLET concept...

Movie Review: EVEREST

Movie Review: EVEREST

On the 10th May 1996 two groups of adventurous explorers headed up the tallest and most terrifying mountain on earth, Mount Everest. Shortly after reaching the summit, a deadly storm took hold of the mountain and several of the climbers didn’t make it back down again and their bodies remain up there. Everest is the story of those expedition groups, loosely adapted from the critically acclaimed novel Into Thin Air written by John Krakauer, a survivor of the tragedy.  What is most horrifying of this story is that not only is it true, but it’s an example of how man’s desperation for success can be a fatal flaw. Mount Everest...

Silicon Valley: “To Build a Better Beta”

Silicon Valley: “To Build a Better Beta”

Check out last week’s review here. To release or not to release? That is the question for Richard as the beta is preparing to take its first little baby steps into the tech world.  And Bachmanity? More like Broke-manity for our pals Erlich and Bighead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8_fjN6ZFbg Richard is waffling over whether or not to release the beta version of Pied Piper. I get his wariness.  Knowing the way things usually go for them, it is not a stretch of the imagination to think releasing the beta could be catastrophic for the company.  Things don’t usually go smoothly for the rag-tag bunch of misfits who call Pied...

Game of Thrones: “The Broken Man”

Game of Thrones: “The Broken Man”

Check out last week’s review here. It has been a season of fast-paced story lines (including characters teleporting between regions in a single episode) and returning characters. Bran, Rickon, and Benjen are just a few of the characters that have returned to Game of Thrones after no screen time for one season or more. This season has already had a different feel from the previous five seasons. “The Broken Man” kicks off with a scene before the opening credits. This caught me by surprise and I had to rewind a bit because it felt like I missed something. Game of Thrones has only ever done this on season premieres. A septon and his...

Margaret Atwood Says MADDADDAM Is Still A Go & It Is Big!

Margaret Atwood Says MADDADDAM Is Still A Go & It Is Big!

Just the other day a commenter asked us if we had heard anything regarding HBO’s adaptation of novelist Margaret Atwood’s Maddaddam Trilogy. We had to respond that we hadn’t, but that we’d investigate. One quick Tweet and…boom a quick response from Atwood herself. Here’s the short exchange. https://twitter.com/MargaretAtwood/status/740284360293679104 As you can see fans are forever impossibly impatient when they want to see a favorite of theirs get a cinematic treatment. We are guilty of it also. Atwood makes two points clear here. One is that it is a “BIG project.” So what’s the first step...

HBO Issues Pilot Orders To Kathryn Bigelow & Adam McKay

HBO Issues Pilot Orders To Kathryn Bigelow & Adam McKay

HBO just okayed two drama concepts to get further consideration for the network. One is from Oscar winners Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) and Adam McKay (The Big Short). Both are offering totally different stories that we can only hope will see the Home Box Office screen. We reported on Bigelow’s concept back on 12.17.15 in a Slate post. Here is that blurb: Kathryn Bigelow Developing Topical Drama The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow (pictured)  is embarking on the daring and bold topic of Jihadi recruitment. She will serve as overseeing executive producer for the concept which...
