TV Junkie: 'Bored to Death' & 'Mad Men' Season Finales Sunday
Weekend EditionHBO is booking a series involving the gender transition of a female to a male. Yes, a 1/2-hour drama focused on transexuality is being developed but no casting or production schedule has been mentioned.
The Cartoon Network is going to have...a couple live-action series. "Tower Prep" and "Unnatural History" will begin their 13-episode runs in January, 2010.
There's some great TV this weekend: tonight the talk shows will feature Christopher Walken, The Pixies, and Regina Spektor. While we don't have high hopes for the Taylor Swift edition of "SNL" we will watch anyway but Sunday features the season finales of both "Bored to Death" and "Mad Men". Please check out our video post yesterday of interviews with "Bored to Death" players Ted Danson, Jason Schwartzman, and series creator Jonathan Ames and check out the video clip at the end of the post for a sneak peek at the finale.
