Showtime Renews Episodes for 3rd Season

Matt LeBlanc is so good at playing himself, he won a Golden Globe for the effort. And we’re going to get to see him do it again in 2013 when Episodes, Showtime’s satire of the television industry, returns for a third season. David Nevins, President of Entertainment for Showtime, announced the new season of Episodes today, which will consist of nine half-hour episodes.

LeBlanc’s portrayal of a middle-aged celebrity desperately trying to become relevant again is painfully funny. But the main draw for us fishies is that Episodes is a show about writers, relatable scribes struggling with both the creative process and a soul-crushing corporate structure, as obsessed with profit as they are clueless about creating anything of real value. And that’s what success looks like in our industry! What else can you do but laugh?
