PREMIERE EPISODE OF THE SHOWTIME(R) COMEDY SERIES "WEEDS" AVAILABLE ONLINE NOW EXCLUSIVELY ON FACEBOOK

Viewers Who Sample The Second Season Premiere Of EPISODES Will Unlock The Premiere Of The Final Season of WEEDS

NEW YORK - June 25, 2012 - Viewers nationwide can now sample the series premieres of the SHOWTIME original comedy series WEEDS and EPISODES, one week before their debut on the network on Sunday, July 1st. Users who watch the season two premiere of EPISODES on the series' Facebook page (http://s.sho.com/LvRWmo ) or across participating distributors' Facebook brand pages, will "unlock" the first episode of the eighth and final season of WEEDS.

In addition, the EPISODES second season premiere can be accessed online now on the SHOWTIME website (http://s.sho.com/Ljw6Tb), on YouTube (http://youtu.be/3CQbuc7UCIY), via select television providers' free On Demand channels and websites, as well as SHOWTIME apps on iPhone(R), iPod Touch(R), NOOK(R) Tablet and Android(TM) smartphones and tablets, for download as a free video podcast on iTunes(R) (http://s.sho.com/episodespodcast), and on the SHOWTIME Social app for iPad(R). In addition, episode two of EPISODES will be available on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND(R) and on SHOWTIME ANYTIME(R) on July 1st after the series debut.

The show that introduced America to a pot-dealing soccer mom and changed the face of the network is sparking up its final toke: after eight unforgettable, jaw-dropping seasons, WEEDS is coming to an end with 13 episodes beginning Sunday, July 1st at 10 p.m. ET/PT. For the final season, it's back to the 'burbs for the Botwins. The fallout from the shot heard round the Tri-State area will transform everyone for the better, at least initially. The tragedy has caused Nancy to turn over a new (pot) leaf and return to her pre-dealing soccer mom ways. Meanwhile, Andy finds some semblance of love with someone uncomfortably close to Nancy, and Doug uses his hedge-fund money in a surprisingly good way. But just as it was in Agrestic, nothing is as serene as it seems in Old Sandwich, Connecticut. Just how long before the Botwins return to their old ways and blow up this new neighborhood, literally and/or figuratively, will remain to be seen.

The second season of EPISODES, premiering on Sunday, July 1st at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, picks up four months after the finale with Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig) 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. EPISODES centers around Sean and Beverly, a husband-and-wife producing team who are 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. Season one left off with Beverly and Sean's comedy, Lyman's Boys, mangled beyond recognition by the Hollywood powers-that-be into Pucks!, a sitcom about a high-school hockey coach starring Matt LeBlanc. When Beverly sleeps with Matt in a moment of drunken madness, her marriage is left as battered as the state of their TV show.
