Matt LeBlanc stars as Matt LeBlanc in EPISODES, the hilarious new comedy series about remaking a comedy series. When husband and wife writing team Sean and Beverly set out to reproduce their British TV hit for an American network, all of their worst fears come true as Hollywood lives up to its reputation for absurdity. Not only does the network cast Matt LeBlanc in the starring role, but Matt takes the lead in deviously twisting their beloved series into a terrible cliché, while testing the couple’s marriage with diversions and temptations.
Mircea Monroe is an actress you're going to be seeing a lot more of in the future, if she keeps working at her current pace. After memorable roles in the Supernatural spin-off Ghostfacers and films such as Tekken, and The Change-Up, the versatile blonde is poised for a breakthrough. She returns as TV star Morning Randolph in the Showtime comedy series Episodes, which pokes fun at the TV network system through a show-within-the-show entitled Pucks.
I recently had the chance to speak with Mircea Monroe for Episodes: The First Season DVD set, currently available at retailers everywhere, and the upcoming second season, debuting Sunday, July 1 at 10:30 PM ET (CLICK HERE to watch the full Season 2 Premiere episode right now!).Read More
The hit comedy series Episodes returns to the Showtime lineup for Season 2 Sunday, July 1 at 10:30 PM ET. The network has provided us with the full Season 2 Premiere episode, weeks before its official debut. Matt LeBlanc returns, playing a version of himself, as he prepares for his big comeback with the series, Pucks. However, like most things in Hollywood, not everything goes according to plan. Take a look at the Season 2 Premiere of Episodes.
Who needs friends? Matt LeBlanc returns in his Golden Globe winning role (as Matt LeBlanc) on Episodes - the biting, hilarious Showtime Original Series about getting screwed in Hollywood. Last season, television writers Beverly and Sean Lincoln had their dreams (and marriage) utterly buggered when their high-brow British sitcom was given a lewd, crude, Hollywood makeover, starring none other than "Joey." Now, with the series pilot projected to be a big hit, the downtrodden scribes are set for success, and Matt LeBlanc is ready for his return to stardom on the small screen. Unfortunately, they soon realize that success in Hollywood is as fleeting as a paparazzi flash. Matt's "big" comeback is bigger than anyone imagined - and not in a good way. Instead of his name in headlines, his waistline is the punch line on all the critics' lips - and when the series bombs in the ratings, it starts to look like Matt could be making the flop of his life - taking Sean and Beverly down with him. Don't miss the new season of the brilliant Hollywood satire Episodes - premiering July 1st at 10:30PM (ET/PT) - only on Showtime.Read More

Starring William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, the outrageous hour-long family drama Shameless received a 12-episode order for its second season, while half-hour comedy series Episodes, starring TV icon Matt LeBlanc as a fictional version of himself, received a second season order with the number of episodes to be determined. Both series premiered on January 9 to widespread critical and audience acclaim, with Shameless becoming Showtime's best performing freshman drama ever.
