Californication


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else been seeing the previews for this new Showtime drama? I'm really hoping it's as clever and well written as it looks. I like David Duchovny (sp) in these campy roles and smart wit but, it's going to need to be a good balance of wit/intelligence/seriousness to keep me interested.

Well, can't say it was terrible, but I couldn't get much past how aged Duchovny looks lately. Makes me wonder if the one-hit-wonder syndrome he refers to is a subtle reference to his TV career to date.

I'll try it again.

I still like lookin' at him.

post-2-1228453327_thumb.jpgIt's back to bed for SHOWTIME with the 3rd season pick-up of the Golden Globe Award-winning comedy series CALIFORNICATION, it was announced today by Robert Greenblatt, SHOWTIME President of Entertainment. Series star and executive producer David Duchovny, who won a Golden Globe Award for his work as 'Hank Moody,' a novelist with weaknesses for sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll, will resume production next spring on 12 episodes for a late 2009 premiere. Series creator and Executive Producer Tom Kapinos helms the production that also stars Natascha McElhone ("Laurel Canyon") and Evan Handler ("Sex and the City").

The series, which was nominated earlier this year for a Golden Globe Award for "Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy" and won an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Cinematography for a Half-Hour Series," centers around the unique and sophisticated world of Hank Moody, a hedonistic novelist/blogger who struggles to raise his Goth-loving teenaged daughter (Madeleine Martin), while still carrying a torch for his disapproving ex-girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone). His unapologetic obsession with truth-telling and self-destructive behavior complicates every aspect of his life.

"It wouldn't be SHOWTIME without a yearly dose of CALIFORNICATION," says Greenblatt. "This unapologetic show, about a group of characters led by the inimitable David Duchovny, has quickly established itself as one of our signature comedy series. Beneath its veneer of debauchery, however, is a complex take on love and adult relationships that surprisingly turns poetic and romantic just when you least expect it. "

"I love working with SHOWTIME, Tom Kapinos, and the cast," says Duchovny. "We all have such creative freedom and support, its been a peak experience, and I am so happy to be doing the show."

Duchovny is best known to millions of fans for his work as Agent Fox Mulder on the long-running cult classic television series, "The X Files," a role for which he earned a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for an Emmy. He also received Emmy nominations for guest appearances on "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Sex and the City." He is a three-time Golden Globe and SAG Award nominee. Recent film credits include last summer's hit film "The X Files: I Want to Believe" opposite Gillian Anderson; "Things We Lost in the Fire" opposite Halle Berry and Benicio del Toro; Jake Kasdan's "The TV Set"; "Trust the Man" and "Evolution," both opposite Julianne Moore; and "Return to Me," co-starring Minnie Driver.
