Pop the champagne, all you opulent premium-cable subscribers: HBO has given the cult of Kenny Powers new life by renewing “Eastbound and Down” for a second season. What do you mean, “it’s still morning”? I said POP THE CHAMPAGNE. Your boss will understand.
The premium cable network announced Wednesday (April 8th) that production on a new run of “Eastbound & Down” will begin later this year and will premiere in 2010…
“‘Eastbound & Down’s’ raucous comedy sparked a loyal and enthusiastic following that grew throughout the season, and we’re happy to bring the show back for more innings,” says Michael Lombardo, president, Programming Group and West Coast Operations, HBO. “It will be fun to see what happens to Kenny in season two.”
Wow, that Michael Lombardo guy really knows how to give a bland quote for an awesome show. I would have preferred a quote from Kenny Powers. He would have said the F-word four or five times, and talked about how great he is, and called other people weaklings and losers while ignoring the sad status of his own life. No wonder I identify with him!
