Matt LeBlanc's 'Episodes' Releases Trailer

November 16, 2010 08:11:24 GMT


The first lengthy trailer of Showtime's new series "Episodes" has been released to reveal the awkwardness that comes with casting Matt LeBlanc. The former "Friends" actor stars as himself in the hilarious new comedy series about remaking a comedy series.

When husband and wife writing team Sean and Beverly set out to reproduce their British TV hit for an American network, all of their worst fears come true as Hollywood lives up to its reputation for absurdity. Not only does the network cast Matt LeBlanc in the starring role, but Matt takes the lead in deviously twisting their beloved series into a terrible cliche, while testing the couple's marriage with diversions and temptations.

'The Walking Dead' Only Returns in October 2011


November 16, 2010 07:22:10 GMT


Fans of new AMC series "The Walking Dead" may squirm at the following news. THR is reporting that the zombie series is not going to be back for the second season anytime soon. The predicted premiere date of the new season is October 2011, which is exactly a year after the first season debuts.

This is particularly frustrating for some because the first season only has 6 episodes. But AMC has several good reasons to premiere the series that late. First of all, it aims for another Fearfest which is the horror-themed programmings leading to Halloween festivity. There will be higher level of audience which fits the genre, and since "Walking Dead" is doing fairly well, it can compete with broadcast shows which mainly premiere in Fall.

"South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are facing legal action over allegations they copied a hit online music video for an episode of the popular cartoon.

The track was mimicked on "South Park" in 2008, when it featured on an episode entitled "Canada on Strike" - but the parody has landed producers in trouble, and they were hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit by Brownmark Films bosses on Friday, November 12.

It's less than two months away from the fourth season premiere of "Californication" and Showtime has released a teaser as well as behind the scene featurette which would give viewers a clue about what Hank Moody would do next.

Madeleine Martin aka Becca added, "This season is about love, lost and carrying on." The BTS footage which uses Darren Criss' "Jealousy" as the background music, also reveals that Hank resorts to prescribed pills and alcohol during his dark hours.
