HBO renewals

Here are some interesting news that fell into my news feed today.

HBO renews Epitáfios and Capadócia – From Teleséries.
Following their local investments, HBO is renewing two of their Latin American Shows for a second season. Both are renewed for new 13 episode cycles, as follow previously renewed Brazilian show “Filhos do Carnaval”, which received an early renewal, and the new season will premiere later thi year.

Epitáfios is procedural police show from Argentina, and the new season will find the protagonist Renzo Marquéz hunting a new serial killer. The first season / mini series was produced and broadcasted back in 2004.

Capadócia is an award winning Mexican show about a women prison.

On related news, as I’ve blogged before, they’re new Brazilian show, “Alice” will premiere next Sunday.

HBO renews True Blood after only 2 episodes – From SciFi Wire

Created and produced by Alan Ball from the Six Feet Under Fame, starring Anna Paquin and based on a book series from Charlaine Harris, it’s been a somewhat polemic show since the pilot leaked in the web a few months ago.  After some satisfying results, HBO’s already announced it’s renewal for a second season to be shown in the summer of 2009.

As the first really genre show from HBO since Carnivale, hopefully we won’t just be left dangling, by the end of the second season, with no resolution at all.
