HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM SHOWTIME!

SHOWTIME(R) RELEASES SUNDAY'S NEW EPISODE OF SHAMELESS AND THE SEASON FINALE OF THE GOLDEN GLOBE(R) NOMINATED COMEDY SMILF EARLY

Episodes Available Tomorrow On SHOWTIME Streaming, SHOWTIME ANYTIME(R) And On Demand

NEW YORK - December 28, 2017 - Starting tomorrow, SHOWTIME will release the eighth episode of SHAMELESS, directed by series star Emmy Rossum, and the season finale of the Golden Globe nominated comedy SMILF, directed by series creator, executive producer and star Frankie Shaw, ahead of their on-air debut this Sunday, December 31 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and 10 p.m. ET/PT respectively. SHOWTIME subscribers can watch the eighth episode of SHAMELESS and the season finale of SMILF on SHOWTIME streaming, SHOWTIME ANYTIME and on demand.

Season eight finds the Gallaghers on an upswing - Frank (William H. Macy, in his current Golden Golden nominated role) has come out of a drug-induced haze and decided it's finally time to be a contributing member of society. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) faces hard decisions when she discovers her success as a landlord might mean someone else's misfortune. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) struggles with unexpected sacrifices he must make to stay sober, while Ian (Cameron Monaghan) takes up a cause in hopes of getting back with Trevor (Elliot Fletcher). Debbie (Emma Kenney) builds her future at welding school while juggling life as a single working mom, as Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) gets creative finding tuition money after he loses his scholarship. Meanwhile, Liam (Christian Isaiah) discovers just how different the Gallaghers are from the families of his rich classmates as Frank schools him on "sticking it to the man." Kev (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) have to find a way to deal with Svetlana (Isidora Goreshter) after she steals their bar, The Alibi. This season of SHAMELESS features recurring guest stars Jessica Szohr as Fiona's tenant, Nessa, and Faran Tahir as Frank's new boss, Adeeb. Season eight has also welcomed back returning recurring guest stars Ruby Modine as Sierra and Scott Michael Campbell as Brad. Created by Paul Abbott, SHAMELESS is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Developed for American television by John Wells, the series is executive produced by Wells, Nancy M. Pimental and Sheila Callaghan.

SMILF is created, starring and executive produced by Golden Globe nominee Frankie Shaw and based on her Sundance Film Festival Jury Award-winning short film of the same name. Shaw plays Bridgette Bird, a young woman from South Boston whose desires for relationships, sex and a career collide with the realities of working-class single motherhood. Shaw brings her singular, unapologetic point of view to the semi-autobiographical comedy series. The cast includes multiple Emmy winner Rosie O'Donnell in her first series regular TV role as Bridgette's prideful, outspoken Southie mother, along with Miguel Gomez, Samara Weaving and Alexandra and Anna Reimer. Guest stars include Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Connie Britton, Mark Webber and Raven Goodwin. Executive producing alongside Shaw are Oscar nominee Michael London, Lee Eisenberg and Scott King. SMILF is produced by ABC Signature Studios as a co-production with SHOWTIME.

In addition to SHOWTIME ON DEMAND(R) and SHOWTIME ANYTIME(R), subscribers can watch the episodes on the SHOWTIME stand-alone streaming service through Apple(R), Roku(R), Amazon, Google, Xbox One and Samsung as well as via Hulu, YouTube TV, Sling TV, DirecTV Now, Sony PlayStation(R) Vue and Amazon Channels.
