ADDITIONAL NOTES:

DESCRIPTION:
(from HBO's press release, July 2014) "B level" TV star Valerie Cherish was a pioneer of reality television. Now, it's ten years later - there's more TV than ever and she wants back in. Lisa Kudrow (Emmy(R) winner for "Friends") stars as the embattled Valerie Cherish, a fading TV "It Girl" who was once so desperate to stay in the spotlight that she allowed cameras to follow her every move as she appeared on a new sitcom, with disastrous results. When THE COMEBACK returns as a six-episode limited comedy series this November, exclusively on HBO, Valerie thinks she has it all figured out this time. She doesn't. Currently in production in Los Angeles, the show was created by Michael Patrick King (Emmy(R) winner for HBO's "Sex and the City") and Lisa Kudrow, who will serve as executive producers along with Dan Bucatinsky (Emmy(R) winner for "Scandal").
