Louis C.K. has a new stand-up comedy special called Oh My God airing Saturday night at 10 p.m. on HBO and then every day after that pretty much. He’s one of the funniest guys alive right now, so it might be worth checking out. Here are some promotional videos to line your stomach with:
There isn’t a lot to say here, this is just great.
Oh My God will premiere on April 13th on HBO, it was recorded during C.K.’s recent U.S. tour, and is directed by the comedian. And as C.K. so puts it in the promo, it will be “the greatest comedy of a generation of blah-blah ever to do a thing on a thing.”
Saturday, April 13th at 10 PM. There.
Music producer Phil Spector was convicted of second-degree murder in 2003. His life and hair are perfect fodder for an HBO movie, and we have a great trailer below to show that fact.
Al Pacino plays Spector. Helen Mirren and Jeffrey Tambor co-star. David Mamet wrote and directed the film. Phil Spector premieres on March 24.
Martin Scorsese is currently working on The Wolf of Wall Street with Leonardo DiCaprio [read more], will produce a documentary about Roger Ebert [read more], and will finally get to work on the Sinatra biopic [read more]. Now the man will The New York Times says Scorsese will direct and produce a documentary about former President Bill Clinton for HBO. Clinton said of the project:
“I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film. I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO’s audience.”
I’m a fan of Scorsese music docs: No Direction Home, Shine a Light, and George Harrison: Living in the Material World; so it should be entertaining all the same – just get Clinton on the sax Marty.
One of my favorite dramas on TV is getting a well deserved extension as HBO has decided to renew the groundbreaking Boardwalk Empire reports THR. The show is three episodes into its third season, so that’s a good sign of faith that HBO has in the cast and crew to continue to be awesome.
If you haven’t made time to sit down and watch the show, I recommend doing so. It’s a slow-boil show I’d say; there is a lot of character development and story going on here that will keep you interested. When it does finally reach a boil (last year’s season finale left me stunned) it’s the payoff you will have been waiting for.
Boardwalk Empire is set in Atlantic City, New Jersey during the Prohibition era. It stars Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson. The show was adapted by Emmy Award-winning screenwriter and producer Terence Winter (The Sopranos). The series has won twelve Emmy Awards and has received 30 nominations, including two for Outstanding Drama Series. The series also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama.
FYI: The first episode, directed by Martin Scorsese, cost $18 million.
Here is a new trailer for the HBO film The Girl; the film takes a look at Hitchcock’s (Toby Jones) obsession with his The Birds actress Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller). This trailer is creepier then the last one we showed you, Toby Jones seems to have nailed his impression of the legendary director.
Starring Toby Jones and Sienna Miller, THE GIRL tells the story of iconic director Alfred Hitchcock’s obsessive relationship with his leading lady, Tippi Hedren, during the making of “The Birds” and “Marnie.” Written by Gwyneth Hughes (HBO’s ‘Five Days,’ ‘Miss Austin Regrets’), THE GIRL is directed by Julian Jarrold (‘Becoming Jane’, ‘Red Riding Trilogy’).
The Girl airs on HBO on October 20th, watch the trailer below:
