    The Bill Hader show should be good.

  2. Melissa says:

    Does this mean that the Lifetime Movie Network show starring Chloë Sevigny is cancelled? (Those Who Kill)?

    • Joey Padron says:

      Those Who Killed was actually on A&E network but got cancelled after a few episodes. Lifetime Movie network air rest of episodes since A&E wasn’t doing to do it.

    • nate says:

      pretty much. it was “canceled after the second episode pretty much.rating were terrible & its adapted from a danish show which got cancelled after the 1st season so they redid it for no reason

  3. Joey Padron says:

    Glad Bill Hader will be back on tv in his own show on HBO.

    Amazing actress, I wish it was more than a recurring role.

  5. Miranda says:

    Can they please name this Netflix show already?

  6. Bryce says:

    STILL untitled. In any case, I’m hoping the tone is similar to damages but still distinct. No other show on TV operated quite like Damages.

  7. alistaircrane says:

    Something is off about Valerie Cherish.

  8. Jon says:

    They should just name the show BLACK SHEEP or something to that effect. I don’t really care what it’s called, I just want a release date. I will follow the people who brought me damages anywhere.
