Prior to HBO’s presentation at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, they released some premiere date news about a few of their series and movies. The date that’s most anticipated, though is for the return of fan (and Emmy) favorite “Game of Thrones”.
According to an HBO press release, “GoT” will premiere on Sunday, April 1, at 9 pm ET for its second ten-episode season. Also debuting in April is “Girls” (April 15 at 10:30 pm ET), a show about a woman in her mid-twenties (Lena Dunham, who also created and is producing the show along with Judd Apatow) trying to figure out life while living in New York City. And on April 22 at 10 pm Eastern, “Veep” premieres; this very funny show stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a disrespected and largely ineffective vice president.
Speaking of politics, the network also announced a March 10 premiere date for the movie adaptation of “Game Change,” based on the book about the 2008 presidential campaign. The movie stars Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin and Ed Harris as John McCain.
