Starring Matt LeBlanc in his Golden Globe-winning role as a fictionalized version of himself, the nine-episode second season of Episodes premieres Monday, July 2 at 9 p.m. PT on Movie Central and 9 p.m. ET on The Movie Network.
Season 1 of Episodes centred on Sean and Beverly, a husband and wife producing team forced to navigate the many pitfalls of the Hollywood television business when their successful British show is brought to America, and the U.S. network insists on making the show more audience friendly by replacing their venerable thespian lead with Matt LeBlanc. The series left off with Beverly sleeping with Matt in a moment of drunken madness, leaving her marriage as bruised and battered as the state of her and Sean’s TV show.
The second season picks up four months later with Sean and Beverly no longer living together, but forced into an awkward working relationship with Matt, as Pucks! goes from a pilot to full-blown series. As Beverly struggles to save her marriage, Matt is determined to save his “bromance” with Sean, and all of them are forced to try to save Pucks! as its ratings start to plummet and the pressure mounts.
