HBO’s DOLL & EM is ready for its sophomore season on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13. Note that its first episode of the new season starts at 10:40pm. The story once again picks up with the adventures of the BFF’s and this season finds them sharing a Brooklyn NYC apartment. We detailed it all in the What’s On post for September, reprinted here.
So what’s going on with these best buds in Season Two? After packing up her life in London, Doll has moved in to Em’s Brooklyn basement, only to find that living in the lap of her friend’s family is surprisingly lonely. Meanwhile, their play is jeopardized when Em gets cast in a Hollywood action thriller opposite Ewan McGregor and threatens to abandon their passion project. Chaos ensues as Doll and Em start rewriting the play to reflect their growing frustration with each other, and Wilde and Wood begin to lose faith in the production. Will they resolve their differences and restore balance to their friendship by curtain call, or will things finally fall apart forever for the best friends? September’s episodes:
Episode #7 (season 2, episode 1) Debut: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 at 10:30pm. Reunited best friends Dolly Wells and Emily Mortimer sequester themselves in a remote lighthouse, collaborating on a semi-autobiographical script they hope will take Broadway, or at least off-Broadway, by storm.
Episode #8 (season 2, episode 2) Debut: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 at 10:30pm. In New York, Doll and Em set to work on their play, having secured an off-Broadway venue through Mikhail Baryshnikov, and with Hollywood stars Olivia Wilde and Evan Rachel Wood interested in starring as Em and Doll, respectively.
Episode #9 (season 2, episode 3) Debut: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 at 10:30pm. A chance bar encounter with Ewan McGregor takes Dolly by surprise, while Emily lands a film role that could threaten the future of their play.
HBOWatch is totally behind the comedy series. Last year we had a writer who reviewed the first season two episodes at a time. You can find those reviews here. In December of last year we became aware that it was renewed and on 07.31 of this year discovered its premiere.
So if you are in the mood for a short run comedy to tide you over until THE LEFTOVERS starts up then DOLL & EM is a perfect choice. Come back and let us know what you think.
