When you’re an emerging name in the realm of fantasy and science-fiction writing and your first novel is being adapted into a series by award-winning premium network HBO, there are few things better than being invited to the Emmys.
Four things you don’t really need to know before watching this (but I’m going to tell you anyway)
Fans of Insecure, rejoice! The beloved show has been renewed for a fourth season just as the third season has started on HBO.
Sentient pile of repurposed lamp-heated rotisserie pork rinds Jason Whitlock has descended so far into the abyss of oafish takes and porkpie hats that my feelings about him have shifted from annoyance to contempt to where they exist now, which is pity.
LeBron James’ frank conversation with equally successful and talented friends, is the premises for his new show, The Shop, which debuted on HBO on Tuesday night, and it was a refreshingly unfiltered look at race, the burden of celebrity, what it takes to continue to compete at a high level, and the struggles of…
I did not watch the previous iterations of True Detective. Not for any particular reason, really. I generally like dark and deliberate murder mysteries—I had to resuscitate myself to write this after Sharp Objects killed me last night—but there just wasn’t any room for True Detective on the plate of shows I actively…
Mahershala Ali, the man who breathes new life into everything he touches (his roles, your fantasies, various printed shirts and blazers) is coming back to hopefully, probably, maybe resurrect HBO’s True Detective series.
Has there ever been a show that ignites as many discussions on your timeline as Insecure? Thanks to Issa Rae and team, Insecure has given many the platform they’ve been looking for, where they finally have their Facebook status post lighting up with engagement.

The story of Sandra Bland will be coming to HBO this fall.
Rumors are swirling that Beyoncé’s next visual album could be hitting Netflix—but should we believe them?
Charlamagne tha God is bringing his controversial questions and topics to HBO.
Fun fact: For a full decade after Sex and the City went off the air, anytime I heard the telltale static that preceded any HBO original show, I fully expected to hear the opening chimes of Sex and the City’s theme song. That’s how iconic the brand was, and how much I missed my weekly fix of the fictional antics of…
Leading up to the premiere of the HBO docuseries Being Serena, which aired Wednesday night, the network promised viewers “unprecedented access” to Serena Williams’ life—including her pregnancy, new motherhood and marriage, all while filling in the details of Williams’ ascent to become one of the greatest athletes of…
Westworld returns to HBO tonight, and having previewed the premiere, I gotta tell you: Brace yourselves, because this season is destined to be even more of a doozy than the last (calm down; that’s the extent of my spoilers for season 2).
The next time you want to pout and act ungrateful over something trifling, like your server being too slow with the free breadsticks or your roommate leaving her socks on the dang couch again, please remember that you were placed on this earth at the exact same time as one Michael B. Jordan, and that fact alone is…
For over 25 years, Anna Deavere Smith has been observing us.
Black comediennes have a special place in my heart. From Whoopi Goldberg and Mo’Nique to Tiffany Haddish and every other melanin-heavy sista onstage, there’s incredible depth and a tooth-and-nail fight in how they got to where they are. It’s inspiring, to say the least.
