TVLine Items: First Project Greenlight Teaser, Vergara on Simpsons and More

Self-absorbed film directors, full-blown panic, ample footage of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck — yep, Project Greenlight is back.

HBO has released a 30-second teaser for the return of the filmmaking competition series, which is once again exec-produced by Damon and Affleck.

The series, which last aired in 2005, chronicles the challenges faced by a first-time director throughout the entire filmmaking process. Judging by the first teaser, though, the biggest challenge for this film may be the director himself.

Press PLAY on the video above for a first look at Project Greenlight‘s return, premiering Sunday, Sept. 13, at 10/9c on HBO.
