Iako je Showtime obično emitirao Californication kroz jesen, četvrtu je sezonu pomakao u zimsko razdoblje. Prva epizoda kreće 10. siječnja.
Što možda i nije toliko loša stvar, obzirom na prorijeđen broj serija u tom razdoblju (iako ništa nije usporedivo sa dosadom ljeta). Kad smo već kod ljeta, prevruće je da prevodimo Showtimeovu objavu za medije… Kratka najavica četvrte sezone:
This season, Hank will have to deal with the fall-out from his one-night stand with then-underage pseudo step-daughter Mia (Madeline Zima) going public. His epic legal troubles force him to enlist the aid of hot, high-powered defense attorney Abby (Carla Gugino) to keep him out of the big house. Rob Lowe (“Parks & Recreation”) special guest stars. Guest stars include Michael Ealy (“Flash Forward”), Zoe Kravitz (“Twelve”) Stephen Tobolowsky (“Glee”), Callie Thorne (“Rescue Me”), Addison Timlin (“Cashmere Mafia”) and rocker Tommy Lee.
Također, dvije nove serije kreću u razmaku od samo dva dana. Shameless, nova drama, te Episodes, humoristična serija sa Mattom LeBlancom u glavnoj ulozi kreću 9. odnosno 10. siječnja..
SHAMELESS, a new drama series from John Wells (“ER,” “The West Wing,” “Southland”) and Paul Abbott (“State of Play,” “Touching Evil”) is based on the long-running hit UK series and stars Emmy® Award winner and Oscar® nominee William H. Macy (Fargo, Pleasantville, The Cooler) and Emmy Rossum (The Phantom of the Opera, Mystic River). Macy plays a far-from-stellar working class patriarch of an unconventional Chicago brood of six motley kids (headed by eldest sibling Rossum) who keep the home afloat while he’s out drinking and carousing. SHAMELESS is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Wells and Abbott are executive producers; Andrew Stearn (“The West Wing,” “Southland”) is co-executive producer.
New comedy series EPISODES stars Matt LeBlanc (“Friends”) and is executive produced and created by David Crane (“Friends”, “The Class”) and Jeffrey Klarik (“The Class”, “Mad About You”). The series focuses on a British couple whose hit, erudite UK show is turned into an Americanized sitcom starring LeBlanc (as himself). Jimmy Mulville executive produces through his successful Hat Trick production company (“Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” “Worst Week”). EPISODES is a co-production of SHOWTIME and the BBC.
