Showtime picks up 'Episodes,' 'Shameless' for second seasons
Showtime President of Entertainment David Nevins announced that "Shameless," a comedy-drama starring William H. Macy as the often-drunk matriarch of an unconventional family, will have a second-season order of 12 episodes. "Episodes," featuring Matt LeBlanc as the arrogant star of an American sitcom adapted by a British couple, received a second-season order with the number of episodes yet to be determined.
Production for the second season of both shows, which premiered Jan. 9, will begin later this year.
