Amy Schumer, the creator, star, writer and executive producer of the Peabody Award-winning and Emmy-nominated series Inside Amy Schumer, headlines her first HBO special taped at the Apollo Theater in New York and directed by Chris Rock.
Valerie Cherish was once a pioneer of reality television. Now, there’s more TV than ever, and the onetime sitcom star wants back in. This November, fans of HBO’s original The Comeback will get to see Valerie do what she does best (or at least funniest!), as Lisa Kudrow returns to HBO for all-new episodes of the acclaimed series. Kudrow, the Emmy®-winning star of Friends who was nominated eight years ago for The Comeback, stars once again as the embattled Valerie Cherish, the onetime TV “It Girl” who allowed reality cameras to follow her every move as she appeared on a new sitcom, Room and Bored – with disastrous results. It’s now ten years later, and Valerie has hired a student film crew to shoot footage she hopes will get the attention of Bravo, and put her back on the map. When she discovers that her former nemesis (and fresh-out-of-rehab) Paulie G. has a new HBO show called Seeing Red based on his experiences working with her, an irate Valerie crashes the HBO offices crying defamation – but ends up getting the role based on herself. The new episodes of this “very meta” comedy series feature much of the original cast, as well as a number of celebrity guests.
Available on Digital HD now are the loved…….
Triple-threat writer/director/actor Lena Dunham debuts the highly anticipated sophomore season of her Emmy®-winning Girls this January. Following the urban adventures of a group of 20-something women, the series focuses on Hannah Horvath (Dunham) and her complicated web of NYC friends, ex-friends, boyfriends, and ex-boyfriends. This season, Hannah forges ahead with her dream of being a bestselling author and begins seeing someone new, but her enthusiasm is tempered by the responsibility she feels for her now-ex Adam (Adam Driver), convalescing after his S1-finale accident. Let down by work and still lonely after calling things off with Charlie, Marnie (Allison Williams) needs her best friend and former roommate more than ever, but lingering awkwardness – and some surprising turns – only drive a wedge further between them. Meanwhile, still-married Jessa (Jemima Kirke) returns from her honeymoon, supplying Hannah with surprising new ideas. Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) takes charge of her new identity as a sexually active woman – and copes with the emotions that come along with it – as Ray (Alex Karpovsky) has an out-of-sight, out-of-mind attitude toward their relationship. The girls may have their ups and downs, but the show’s raw poignancy and fresh humor remain constant. And Season 2 of Girls is as addictive as ever.
Created by Steve Levinson (Entourage, Boardwalk Empire) and featuring an impressive executive-producer pedigree, this all-new HBO comedy explores the sun-soaked world of a group of past and present football players in and around Miami, FL. Though they’re pros when it comes to playing the game, each has a harder time navigating life off the field. Leading the pack is Spencer (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), a retired football superstar who is trying to find a foothold as a financial manager to current players. Spencer’s inner circle includes a talented but volatile wide receiver Ricky (John David Washington), who seeks to balance his off-field antics with his passion for the game; Charles (Omar Miller), a reluctantly retired lineman who’s finding it hard to adjust to civilian life; and rookie sensation Vernon (Donovan Carter), whose promise never to forget “where he came from” brings scores of hangers-on into his life, and lands him in big financial trouble. As Spencer tries to juggle his friends, he gets assistance from Jason (Troy Garity), a top-tier sports agent, and Joe (Rob Corddry), Spencer’s larger-than-life boss, who’ll do just about anything to close a deal. In an industry where the career span is unbelievably short, Spencer and his crew must figure out where the game ends and life begins, all while keeping their cool and having each other’s backs.
