The Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour is always an exciting time for all of us at Showtime. To give you some background on what exactly the TCA is, it represents more than 200 entertainment journalists from across the United States and Canada. Twice a year (summer and winter) the group gathers in Los Angeles to watch each television network present its upcoming programming with a series of Q&A panels comprised of executive producers and cast members.
Our TCA day was filled with exciting announcements from the President of Entertainment for our network, David Nevins, and panels for our new drama series HOMELAND starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, comedy series WEB THERAPY, starring Lisa Kudrow, which premiered on July 19th, and two inspiring documentaries that commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11. The first documentary, THE LOVE WE MAKE chronicles Paul McCartney’s poignant and cathartic journey through the streets of New York City in the aftermath of the World Trade Center’s destruction and traces the planning and performance of the monumental benefit concert at Madison Square Garden, “The Concert for New York City,” which took place less thank six weeks after the terrorist attacks. The second, REBIRTH, follows five people over the course of the last 10 years, whose lives were forever altered on September 11th.
Among the many announcements of the day, we learned that there will be a 10-episode second season for THE BORGIAS, which will be more “violent and visceral,” a second season for GIGOLOS, and a new project, LAUGHING STOCK, executive produced by Steve Carell and David Steinberg, which willfeature in-depth interviews with comedic icons.
And for all of you DEXTER fans, David Nevins gave some hints about the religious-themed upcoming sixth season.
“One of the things that’s interesting about Dexter this year is the killings he’s following — not to give anything away — that’s coming from this particular relationship between [the two killers Dexter hunts] Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos. It’s an interesting story that has its own mystery to it, a story to be followed with clues to be unpacked, in a Dan Brown kind of way.”
If TCA is any indication, we sure have a lot in store for you this year, so get excited!
