The fifth and final season of acclaimed comedy series EPISODES will premiere on Sunday, August 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. EPISODES stars Matt LeBlanc in his four-time Emmy®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning role playing a fictionalized version of himself. At the start of the final season of EPISODES, several months have passed and the game show hosted by Matt is now a runaway hit. Unfortunately for Matt, this means his years as an actor are completely forgotten. Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig) are equally miserable. Sean’s loathsome ex-partner is now in charge of their new series, The Opposite of Us, and Sean and Beverly must now endure his utter lack of humor or talent as they watch him slowly destroy their show. EPISODES also stars John Pankow, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Mircea Monroe, Andrea Savage and Andrea Rosen. EPISODES is created, written and executive produced by award-winning writing partners David Crane (Friends) and Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You). Klarik directed the entire final season. The series is also executive produced by Jimmy Mulville through his Hat Trick production company.
Season two of the comedy series DICE will return with seven new, half-hour episodes Sunday, August 20 at 10:30pm ET/PT. Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, the scripted, semi-autobiographical series will dig deeper into the unconventional world of Andrew Dice Clay – beyond the character who once sold out Madison Square Garden. The unemployed comic struggles to restart his career and deals with the effects of his outrageous brand of fame, all while living in the Vegas suburbs with his girlfriend Carmen (Natasha Leggero). Created by Scot Armstrong (Old School, The Hangover Part II), Dice chronicles Clay as he tries to live his life while trapped in the skin of “The Diceman.” The series also stars Kevin Corrigan and Leggero. Season two guest stars include David Arquette, Andy Daly, Patrick Fischler, Billy Gardell, Mary Holland, Michael Imperioli, Ron Livingston, Laraine Newman, Tony Orlando, Mickey Rourke, Teller, Mike Starr and James Woods.
