Multi-faceted comedian and actor Eddie Izzard and multiple award-winning actress Frances Conroy will guest star on the Showtime series United States of Tara. Izzard will appear in eight episodes and Conroy in one episode of the third season opposite Toni Collette, last year's Emmy Award winner and this year's Emmy nominee for her role as Tara Gregson, a wife and mother who struggles with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

http://movieweb.com/tv/nurse-jackie/ On the heels of record ratings for their second season debuts, two of Showtime'S critically and audience acclaimed original comedy series Nurse Jackie and the Emmy winning The United States Of Tara, have both been renewed for a third season. Both half-hour comedy series have received 12 episode orders and will go into production later in the year. The announcement was made today by Robert Greenblatt, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc.

The first season of Showtime's hit dark comedy series Nurse Jackie starring Emmy Award winner Edie Falco was both an audience and critical success, culminating with its selection as one of AFI's Top Ten Television Series of 2009 and Golden Globe and SAG award nominations for Edie Falco. At the end of last season, Jackie's (Edie Falco) struggle to keep her dual lives appeared to be in jeopardy as Eddie (Paul Schulze) discovered the truth about her marriage and children. Season two picks up a few months after she has cut ties with Eddie and all seems well in Jackie's world as she is determined to spend more time with her husband (Dominic Fumusa) and two daughters (Ruby Jerins, Mackenzie Aladjem). With Eddie out of the picture both personally and professionally, her access to drugs has diminished, but her cravings have not. Last season, Jackie's extreme measures to keep her life on balance was a high wire act. In season two, the wire only gets higher.
