During the summer months I usually abandon my TV and head to the theatre instead. Throughout May and June I had a movie date every single weekend. After the fourth, my blockbuster interest started to dwindle (as did my entertainment budget). To bust my boredom, I turned to summer TV and was pleasantly surprised at what I found.
On Sunday night, I was introduced to a circle of friends who know the ins and outs of the Beverly Hills elite. Devious Maids follows five women who clean up more than their employers’ houses.
- If Camp Clements had been anything like the show Camp, I would have actually left my cabin. This show follows a newly divorced single mom, Mack, trying to run her family camp, Little Otter. Lots of hilarious pranks and unexpected romances can be found on this NBC show.
Who doesn’t love a game night with your closest friends? Now imagine your friends are famous! Hollywood Game Night is a collection of celebrities playing for charities with the help of two civilians playing for a $25,000 take home prize. With Jane Lynch as the show’s fearless host, you won’t think of excuses to bail on this game night.
Just when I think I’m starting to lose my street cred, I tune into the Sundance channel to watch Jim Rash’s, The Writer’s Room. Each week, the executive producers of such critically acclaimed shows like: Breaking Bad, Parks and Recreation, Dexter, and many more come to form a round table and talk all things TV. It’s interesting to me to see each show’s writing rituals and how characters we love are created.
