New Summer TV Comedies: June 2015


The HBO comedies don’t look particularly funny. Ballers seems to be another Entourage-like show, which makes sense since it is produced by Mark Wahlberg. The Brink has a good cast, but all the jokes in the trailer fell flat. I have hope for Another Period since it is pretty close to the same group of people that made Burning Love, which was fantastic.
