BIGGEST SUNDAY EVER ON SHOWTIME! SHAMELESS, EPISODES & CALIFORNICATION To Premiere January 9th

Cable Premiere of TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON to Debut January 8th

LOS ANGELES, CA - (September 22, 2010) - SHOWTIME(R) will ring in the New Year in a most spectacular way with an exciting triple-header premiere night - Sunday, January 9, 2011 -- of provocative, can't-miss programming, including new drama series SHAMELESS (10p) with William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum; new comedy series EPISODES (9:30p), starring Matt LeBlanc; and the fourth season premiere of the hit comedy series CALIFORNICATION (9p), starring David Duchovny. The night will be hosted on-air by LeBlanc and his EPISODES co-stars Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig.

To kick off the weekend in high style, on Saturday, January 8th, the network will debut the cable television premiere of part two in the box-office-busting teen vampire franchise THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON (8p), starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, directed by Chris Weitz from the blockbuster novel by Stephenie Meyer. The schedule is as follows:

Saturday, January 8 th

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON (8p)

SHAMELESS (10pm)

All times Eastern/Pacific

SHAMELESS, a new drama series from John Wells ("ER," "The West Wing," "Southland") and Paul Abbott ("State of Play," "Touching Evil") is based on the long-running hit UK series and stars Emmy(R) Award winner and Oscar(R) nominee William H. Macy (Fargo, Pleasantville, The Cooler) and Emmy Rossum (The Phantom of the Opera, Mystic River). Macy plays a far-from-stellar working class patriarch of an unconventional Chicago brood of six motley kids (headed by eldest sibling Rossum) who keep the home afloat while he's out drinking and carousing. SHAMELESS is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Wells and Abbott are executive producers; Andrew Stearn ("The West Wing," "Southland") is co-executive producer.

New comedy series EPISODES stars Matt LeBlanc ("Friends") and is executive produced and created by David Crane ("Friends", "The Class") and Jeffrey Klarik ("The Class", "Mad About You"). The series focuses on a British couple whose hit, erudite UK show is turned into an Americanized sitcom starring LeBlanc (as himself). Jimmy Mulville executive produces through his successful Hat Trick production company ("Whose Line Is It Anyway?," "Worst Week").

Finally, SHOWTIME will premiere the fourth season of hit comedy series CALIFORNICATION, starring David Duchovny in his Golden Globe(R)-winning role as hedonistic novelist Hank Moody who struggles to raise his teenage daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin), with on-again, off-again girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone). This season, Hank will have to deal with the fall-out from his one-night stand with then-underage pseudo step-daughter Mia (Madeline Zima) going public. His epic legal troubles force him to enlist the aid of hot, high-powered defense attorney Abby (Carla Gugino) to keep him out of the big house. Rob Lowe ("Parks & Recreation") special guest stars. Guest stars include Michael Ealy ("Flash Forward"), Zoe Kravitz ("Mad Max: Fury Road") Stephen Tobolowsky ("Glee"), Callie Thorne ("Rescue Me"), Addison Timlin ("Cashmere Mafia") and rocker Tommy Lee. Duchovny executive produces alongside creator and EP Tom Kapinos.
