HBO Renews Entourage


HBO has picked up “Entourage” for a sixth season, reports Variety. Production on the new season will begin early next year for a summer debut.

The fifth season of the half-hour comedy premiered in September.

Michael Lombardo, HBO president of programming group and West Coast operations, called “Entourage” a “smart, sharp comedy series that continues to evolve.”

The series, created and executive produced by Doug Ellin, stars Adrian Grenier as once-hot actor Vincent Chase, as well as Jeremy Piven, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara. Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson also executive produce.
