HBO has just announced they’ve renewed the Laura Dern series “Enlightened” for a second season, but gave three other shows the boot.
They are ditching ‘Hung’, ‘Bored to Death’, and ‘How to Make it in America’.
“Hung” (starring Thomas Jane) and “Bored” (with Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis) ran for three seasons apiece, while “America” had two.
Last week, Dern earned a Golden Globe nomination for Lead Actress in a Comedy for her work on “Enlightened.”
I’ve been telling everyone who will listen that ‘Enlightened’ is AMAZING. Really a great, great show. I really liked ‘Bored to Death’ and ‘HTMIIA’, but I can see why HBO canceled them. They weren’t awesome…. but they weren’t terrible either. Plus – Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis in a show together? Yes please!
PS: Poor Brian Greenberg….that kid can’t catch a break!
But I’m glad ‘Enlightened’ is coming back. You guys need to check it out OnDemand if you can. It’s great!
