Three-time Emmy winner Uzo Aduba is heading to HBO.
Aduba, who played Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, will be the star of In Treatment, HBO’s therapy drama that is being resurrected after it seemingly ran its course back in 2010. Learn about her new character below. Read More »
According to a new report, HBO is considering a reboot of In Treatment, the Gabriel Byrne-starring show about a therapist who takes daily appointments with patients and who also meets with his own therapist. The series kicked off in 2008 and ended in 2010 after three seasons, and it was notable at the time for being one of the rare dramas that aired a new episode five nights a week on HBO. Read More »

We’ve got a mixed bag of TV bits for you today, from some pretty sci-fi artwork for TNT to possible envelope-pushing on NBC, so let’s get started.
First off, HBO’s treatment of In Treatment: It was widely reported last night that the premium cable network had canceled its ratings-challenged psychiatric drama starring Gabriel Byrne. Today, however, HBO has released a statement suggesting the show might not be dead after all:
It’s true that we have no plans to continue with ‘In Treatment’ as previously formatted. However, we are in continued conversations with the executive producers to find another way to continue telling these rich stories.
The show currently has a somewhat unusual format. Instead of one episode per week, In Treatment airs multiple episodes in a week. It seems plausible that HBO’s plan is to streamline the show somewhat by consolidating or cutting some of the episodes, but the network has yet to officially announce its strategy. (Edit from Russ: HBO also planned to continue Deadwood in a different format, and that never happened. That, however, was a far more expensive proposition. Hopefully this will work out better.)

Joseph Fiennes and Eva Green will travel back to Camelot, the Starz series that re-tells the story of King Arthur. Fiennes is Merlin, while Green will be Morgana. Solid casting with both, though I’m not certain that I’ll ever be able to look at an Arthurian film or TV series without having to leap the hurdle of some of Excalibur‘s actors. Nicol Williamson and Helen Mirren are pretty difficult to top as Merlin and Morgana. In this Camelot Jamie Campbell Bower is Arthur, and Tamsin Egerton is Guinevere. [Reuters]
After the break, the great Amy Ryan goes back to HBO and Madonna’s possibly interesting new film finds its last major player. Read More »
If you’ve been reading /Film for a while, then you know my obsession with minimalistic movie poster design. We’ve featured many of these simple 2-4 color streamlined posters on the site in the past, but never anything having to do with television. Graphic artist Albert Exergian has created a bunch of minimalistic posters for some of television’s most popular shows. And while these aren’t as conceptually clever as what I’m used to, I can still appreciate many of these. I’ve included a sample after the jump. You can buy prints of many of these posters for £50.00 on Blanka.
