Lena-Headey-in-Game-of-Thrones-Season-2-Episode-1-The-North-Remembers-e1332386772522

Speaking at the Time Warner Inc. Investor Meeting today, Richard Plepler, chairman and CEO, HBO, announced that the company will offer a stand-alone HBO streaming service in 2015. Following a portion of his presentation focused on HBO’s domestic business, during which he cited significant growth opportunities inside the pay-TV universe, Plepler then turned to the current ten million broadband-only homes, which is projected to grow.

Plepler then added:

“That is a large and growing opportunity that should no longer be left untapped. It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO.

“So, in 2015, we will launch a stand-alone, over-the-top, HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners. And, we will explore models with new partners. All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them.”

Colin Farrell Confirms He'll Be Starring In Season Two Of 'True Detective'

colins

True Detective became a huge success for HBO during its first season and there was no question that the series would receive a second season. The question that did arise was who was going to replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as the leads. Both actors received Emmy nods for their performances on the gritty drama.

Several names have been thrown around as to who would be joining the series. One name that seemed to pop up often was that of Colin Farrell. While speaking to the Sunday World, Farrell confirmed that he would be joining the second season.

"I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.", said the Ireland native. He went on to add “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.”

We reached out to Colin's representation to confirm the story but haven't heard back as of yet.

Stay tuned...

Danny McBride Returns To HBO In 'Vice Principals'

danny-mcbride

Danny McBride, star of the hit HBO comedy series “Eastbound & Down,” will return to the network in the comedy series VICE PRINCIPALS, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. The show is slated for 18 episodes, with the debut date and number of episodes per season to be announced as they are confirmed.

“Danny McBride and Jody Hill have created a smart, rowdy and unpredictable style of comedy that we can’t get enough of,” said Lombardo. “The idea of them setting their minds on high school was irresistible.”

“HBO was the perfect creative family for ‘Eastbound & Down,’ and we’re excited to pack up the van for the next adventure,” notes McBride.

“When the idea for the new series became too crazy to keep to ourselves, we knew HBO was the perfect place to unleash it,” says executive producer David Gordon Green.

Created by Danny McBride and Jody Hill, who were also the creators of “Eastbound & Down,” VICE PRINCIPALS tells the story of a high school and the people who almost run it, the vice principals.

Concluding its four-season run on HBO in 2013, “Eastbound & Down” starred McBride as irrepressible former major league pitcher Kenny Powers.

VICE PRINCIPALS is executive produced by Danny McBride, Jody Hill, David Gordon Green and Stephanie Laing, who were also executive producers of “Eastbound & Down.”

HBO's 'The Comeback' Returns This Fall

Lisa Kudrow in The Comeback

B level” TV star Valerie Cherish was a pioneer of reality television. Now, it’s ten years later – there’s more TV than ever and she wants back in.

Lisa Kudrow (Emmy® winner for “Friends”) stars as the embattled Valerie Cherish, a fading TV “It Girl” who was once so desperate to stay in the spotlight that she allowed cameras to follow her every move as she appeared on a new sitcom – with disastrous results.

When the comedy series THE COMEBACK returns as a new six-episode limited series this fall, exclusively on HBO, Valerie thinks she has it all figured out this time. She doesn’t. Scheduled to begin production in Los Angeles this month, the show was created by Michael Patrick King (Emmy® winner for HBO’s “Sex and the City”) and Lisa Kudrow, who will serve as executive producers along with producing partner Dan Bucatinsky (Emmy® winner for “Scandal”).
