Hugh Grant will also give this American TV thing a try, joins Nicole Kidman's HBO drama

We’re not sure if you’ve heard, but this television thing has become a pretty big deal. Even big movie stars who wouldn’t normally be caught dead watching a TV have signed on to TV projects recently, which has been the case for a long time now but we’re pretending its a new trend for comedic effect! Anyway, according…

Taxicab Confessions was initially more about heart than salaciousness

For a generation of teens, HBO’s Taxicab Confessions was a notoriously frustrating watch. Everything around the promotion of the show seemed to promise an abundance of scandalous sexual content, but inevitably you’d find yourself up well past your bedtime watching an alcoholic father confess his greatest regrets in…

Game Of Thrones will return for its final season in April 2019

One year and three months. That’s how long it’s been since Game Of Thrones’ penultimate season ended. That’s how long it’s been since—spoiler alert if you somehow aren’t caught up on season seven, and if not, what the hell have you been doing?—The Night King rode atop a blue-eyed Viserion shooting crazy blue flames as…

David Spade prepares to make a serious comedy comeback with Diablo Cody HBO series 

David Spade hasn’t had an objectively great comedy role in a long time, but that’s all about to change—in theory—thanks to HBO, Diablo Cody, and Jason Reitman. According to The Wrap, Spade is set to star in a new HBO comedy series from Cody and Reitman (the team behind Juno, Young Adult, and Tully) about a washed-up,…

George R.R. Martin admits he's "struggling" with The Winds of Winter

George R.R. Martin’s been living a life of champagne wishes and caviar dreams since HBO turned Game Of Thrones into a cultural phenomenon, hobnobbing with celebrities and inking TV deals as if there isn’t an unfinished manuscript gathering dust on his Wordstar 4.0. He’s shared sample chapters from his upcoming The…

David Simon announces fictional miniseries about the rise of fascism and antisemitism in America

Philip Roth died earlier this year, leaving behind a legacy of novels that are likely to be celebrated for generations to come, and a whole bunch of film adaptations that, well, not so much. (Looking at you, The Human Stain.) Now, Deadline reports that HBO and David Simon will be giving one of Roth’s better-known 21st…

Jeremy Irons is apparently old Ozymandias in HBO's Watchmen

We’ve known for months that Jeremy Irons will be in HBO’s Watchmen TV pilot, which is supposedly an “alternative reality” from the one depicted in the comic and takes place after that story, but all we knew was that he’d be playing an “aging and imperious lord of a British manor.” Now, it sounds like we might not have…

Mad Men’s Bob Benson to escape meme fame as a series regular on HBO’s Watchmen

James Wolk has been in a lot of things. The guy’s had roles in Billions, Shameless, Political Animals, Zoo, and something called Tell Me A Story that mixes fairy tales with Trump (don’t ask). But no one associates his name with those shows. Instead, Wolk’s career has been linked to three small words, the now-universal…

George R.R. Martin is beefing with HBO over the title of the Game Of Thrones prequel

HBO doesn’t really need George R.R. Martin anymore, do they? Like, Game Of Thrones is wrapping up early next year and Martin himself has admitted that he’s not all that involved in its spin-offs. What the author has created is now its own self-sustaining engine, one that will continue to chug along whether he finishes …

Chance The Rapper and basketball guy Steph Curry are here to remind you that voting is super easy

You may not have heard—we get it, we’re mid-binge on, like, five different streaming shows right now—but there’s a national election in three days. And while we know that voting booths, mail-in ballots, and the grim specter of democracy’s looming death can all be scary (so many levers!), we’re happy to report that the …

Game Of Thrones' final season starts at Winterfell, ends at some mysterious new place

So far, we’ve only been able to get information about Game Of Thrones’ final season by piecing together vague, possibly misleading comments from the people who star in it, but things seem to be a little easier for James Hibberd over at Entertainment Weekly. He actually got a chance to visit the show’s extremely…

Poldark's Josh Whitehouse to star, probably die in HBO's Game Of Thrones prequel

Josh Whitehouse is a household name over in the U.K., where he stars in the wildly popular, extremely horny period drama Poldark. Now, he’s set to become every bit as recognizable stateside, as he’s just been cast alongside Naomi Watts in another horny series: HBO’s Game Of Thrones prequel. Set thousands of years…

HBO now requiring all of its shows to have an "intimacy coordinator" on set during sex scenes

Watching a steamy sex scene on HBO—whether its The Deuce’s wide-ranging exploration of sex work, or Game Of Thrones’ infamous “sexposition”—it’s easy to forget that you’re watching a bunch of people at work, just like any other poor schmuck collecting a paycheck. That’s part of the point, of course—nobody on the…
