Smollett & Blair cast in TRUE BLOOD

Production for TRUE BLOOD Season Six is moving along as further casting for the season is taking shape. Two talented ladies were recently added. Jurnee Smollett  (pictured at right) will play a character named Nicole Wright. She is quoted as being “not concerned with money and more concerned with the common good and doing what’s right.”  Amelia Rose Blaire will play Willa Burrell, daughter of the Governor of Louisiana. She is said to “have long clashes with her father over vampire rights.” Politics have always been an underlying thread in the TRUE BLOOD story. It is more than just about which vampire rules which jurisdiction but...

David Chase Talks THE SOPRANOS

David Chase Talks THE SOPRANOS

Here are some brief comments from THE SOPRANOS creator David Chase that you might consider good news/bad news. You decide. Mr. Chase told website Showbiz 411, in an interview mainly about his big screen debut as director of a movie called Not Fade Away, that a THE SOPRANOS movie is not going to happen. Roger Friedman’s piece for the site states -   What about a “Sopranos” movie, I asked. “No, unh uh,” he said, shaking his head, and his wife even agreed. I did try to slip in–’those people are dead’–but Chase refuses to say what happened to Tony, Carmella, Meadow and AJ. That is the bad news portion of this post....

This Just In: Warner Bros. Green Lights ENTOURAGE Movie

This Just In: Warner Bros. Green Lights ENTOURAGE Movie

HBOWatch reported way back on 09.23.12 that ENTOURAGE was shaping up as a movie.  As stated, creator Doug Ellin was well on his way to completing a screenplay. At that time there was even rumor that production could be underway by now. Well, that is all well and good but, unless a movie is a pure independent film, it doesn’t go far without a studio behind it. Finally, just yesterday, Warner Bros., having read Ellin’s completed screenplay I presume, committed to an ENTOURAGE movie. That means the continued Hollywood exploits of Vincent Chase, his brother, his manager and his driver or, as we know them, Johnny “Drama,” Eric “E.”...

The GIRLS Are Back: Season 2 So Far (Eps 1-3)

The GIRLS Are Back: Season 2 So Far (Eps 1-3)

The ‘GIRLS’ are back! We’re now three episodes deep in Lena Dunham’s two-time Golden Globe winning series and things are slowly spiraling out of control for our protagonist and the rest of the crew. Forget the shy, self-loathing Hannah of Season 1. Season 2 has unleashed a more bravos Hannah, a girl who’s tired of getting pushed around. Her hormones may be a little out of control but she’s still just as awkward and hilarious as before. But it isn’t just Hannah- all of our characters have taken a complete 180 from last season. (Except Charlie, he’s still a little bitch.) Ray and Shoshanna have...

The Animated History of Westeros

The Animated History of Westeros

Though sacramental to many fans of George R.R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire it is a simple fact that many Game of Thrones viewers are a bit behind when it comes to the deep and rich history of Westeros.  There just isn’t time to portray every nugget of juicy history no matter how awesome or dragon-filled it might be.  But HBO once again has you covered with the animated history of Westeros to be included in the Game of Thrones season 2 DVD and Blu-Ray set coming this spring.  Here’s a little taste from the sers over at Winter is Coming: 19 all-new animated histories! And the below is just one of them. We...

New HBO CEO Flirts with Standalone HBOGo

New HBO CEO Flirts with Standalone HBOGo

Speaking at a New Republic event the new CEO of HBO Richard Plepler explained that HBO is aware that some of their customers would like to “cut the cord” from their cable companies while retaining legal access to Game of Thrones, Boarwalk Empire et al. Responding to an audience member’s question Plepler said: “At the same you have to keep your eyes on your north stars, which define your business. Part of the north star reality for us is, there are billions and billions of dollars in revenues that are part of our distribution landscape, and to simply circumvent that, even though we understand there is a part of our...

Ken Burns to Direct HBO Mini-Series

Ken Burns to Direct HBO Mini-Series

HBO has always been the home for the most documentaries available on cable TV.  So partnering with documentarian legend, Ken Burns (Baseball, The Civil War) seems a no-brainer to us!  We can now confirm that the premium cable network is developing a mini-series based on the life of boxer Jack Johnson. The series would be split into around five parts and would focus on the boxer’s incredible life.  Burns has already done an Emmy award winning documentary on the said boxer so he’ll be well versed in the content at hand. We’re excited to see anything out of Ken Burns on ANY network.  But to have him backed by an actual...

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER continues its 11th season FRIDAY, JAN. 25 (10:00-11:00 p.m. live ET/tape-delayed PT), exclusively on HBO, with an instant replay at 11:00 p.m. following the live presentation.

Girls Season 3 is Confirmed, Filming in March

Girls Season 3 is Confirmed, Filming in March

While we reported earlier that Lena Dunham pretty much confirmed a Girls Season 3 a couple of months ago we are now calling it official.  Speaking to Alec Baldwin in a podcast the show creator said: “We’re starting season three at the end of March [...] I’m so excited.” Between the awards, book deals and almost-confirmations this year we expect the official HBO press release to come soon regarding Girls Season 3. Usually HBO announces renewals shortly after the new season begins. So nowish would seem appropriate and likely. With filming beginning this early will we see Girls Season 3 earlier than 2014? Maybe alongside Boardwalk...
