When David Nevins arrived at Showtime in 2010, the premium cable network was searching for the next generation of shows to replace fading stalwarts Dexter and Weeds. The network's president, former head of Imagine Television, has done that and much more, taking the net to 22.8 million subscribers and launching a host of acclaimed series like Homeland, Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex.
Showtime announced today that Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan will both be renewed for a third season, with twelve episodes slated for each series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Production on the new episodes will reportedly begin early next year.
On the longest day of the summer, Thrillist wants to make sure you’re going to have a good time. The online content-meets-commerce publisher is hosting the second annual Best Day of Your Life, a summer food and drink festival that will take over parts of New York’s East Village on Saturday.
Four episodes in and it’s clear that CBS has a rare summer drama hit on its hands with Under the Dome, a claustrophobic yarn about a small town that is hermetically sealed under what amounts to a gigantic impermeable snow globe. Now the only question is when the network will make the renewal official.
