Spy thriller will be rebooted to continue Melissa George's story without some others
Both HBO and Cinemax have benefited from trans-Atlantic partnerships the last few years, resulting in shows like "Extras," "Strike Back" and most recently "Hunted," the Cinemax thriller starring Melissa George as Sam Hunter, a British private spy looking for revenge on the people who tried to kill her. These partnerships have given the larger HBO family access to series and talent who might not have been available without taking on a partner in the U.K., and at a cheaper price than if they were producing it on their own.
But some partnerships don't always go smoothly, as Cinemax has found out with "Hunted." The series still has a few weeks to go in its U.S. run (original episodes air Fridays at 10), but BBC One has already announced that they won't renew the show for a second season, despite Cinemax's interest in continuing the show.

Matthew Perry sitcom hasn't gotten much funnier, but is much more comfortable in its skin
When Matthew Perry's new NBC sitcom "Go On" debuted back during the Summer Olympics, I wasn't entirely sure what to make of it. On the one hand, it seemed a better vehicle for Perry than "Mr. Sunshine" (Yay) did, and the writing seemed to take the idea of a grief support group seriously. On the other, the pilot felt an awful lot like the first episode of "Community," a niche comedy representing a creative direction NBC was openly desperate to get away from, and the pilot, while tasteful in its comedy, also wasn't incredibly funny. Could this possibly work, or would this be yet another high-concept sitcom trying to forget its premise as quickly as possible?
