The HBO Films comedy CLEAR HISTORY debuts SATURDAY AUG. 10 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Larry David stars as a marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who gives up his ten percent of the business after a petty argument with his boss. The company subsequently makes billions of dollars, destroying his life and leaving him publicly humiliated. Ten years later, after changing his name and moving to a small island off the Massachusetts coast, all is well – until something from the past threatens his new life. Jon Hamm, Bill Hader, Philip Baker Hall, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan and J.B. Smoove also star. Directed by Greg Mottola; written by Larry David, Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer; executive producers, Greg Mottola, Bradley Thomas, Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer. Monica Levinson produces; Laura Streicher is associate producer.

BOARDWALK EMPIRE returns for its 12-episode fourth season SUNDAY, SEPT. 8 (9:00-10:00 p.m.). Set in the 1920s during Prohibition, this Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning drama series stars Steve Buscemi as “Nucky” Thompson, the undisputed leader of Atlantic City. The show was created by Terence Winter, who also serves as executive producer with Martin Scorsese, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Tim Van Patten and Howard Korder.

HELLO LADIES debuts SUNDAY, SEPT. 29 (10:30-11:00 p.m.). The new comedy series stars Stephen Merchant as a gawky, 6’ 7” Englishman searching for the woman of his dreams in Los Angeles. Half as charming – and twice as desperate – as he thinks he is, he’s obsessed with infiltrating the glamorous world of beautiful people, who won’t let him in. Stephen Merchant, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky executive produce.

EASTBOUND & DOWN returns for its eight-episode fourth and final season SEPT. 29 (10:00-10:30 p.m.),. Starring Danny McBride and executive produced by Jody Hill, Danny McBride, Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy and Adam McKay, this comedy series tells the story of a star pitcher whose self-destructive behavior knocks him out of major league baseball, leaving him broke, delusional and desperate to regain his former glory.

    been waiting for the larry david movie… cant wait

  • marc

    stellar line up

    i’m looking forward to all 3 shows.

  • samurai99

    What about treme?

  • d’

    yo string, where’s treme at

  • Daniel

    Boardwalk Empire will start the same night as homeland. I saw the newsroom season finale was supposed to be September 29th, so when will that air? I will watch HELLO LADIES.

  • chrisss

    @ Daniel

    Boardwalk airs at 9, Newsroom airs at 10.

  • Daniel

    @chrisss Sorry I read the Boardwalk Empire premiere date wrong, thanks!

  • Rodger

    @Daniel I do not know because The newsroom is twelve episodes this year I think so it would end September 29th but Hello Ladies and Eastbound and Down would be on that week when the newsroom usually airs. Maybe it would air two epsiodes in one week.

  • marc

    nah, the newsroom is 10 eps like last year

  • merrranga

    so that’s what larry’s been up to! does this mean good or bad things for another round of Curb?

  • Pete

    I hope another season of curb, it has been like two year without any at this point. I am glad The Newsroom is twelve episodes this year!

  • Evil Abed

    Hopefully Larry David decides to do another season of Curb your Enthusiasm now that he’s done with this film. This show has been consistently stellar for eight seasons now. Until then, I’m very much looking forward to Clear History.

    Fantastic lineup this fall as well. I’m particularly thrilled that Eastbound & Down is back for a final season — well, “final”, they had sort of implied season 3 would be the last, and it could have been from the a storytelling point, before they gladly decided to go for another round. Kenny Powers is one of the best characters that has ever been created.

  • Andrew

    Glad to see that Eastbound & Down is coming back, even if its the last season. Ny guess is Danny McBride and the creators/producers wanted to move onto other projects, not that HBO only wanted one more season. I hope the new comedy after E&D is good, I miss Hung. Now we just need another season of Curb in 2014, though I’m guessing it will be the last one.

    East bound is back!!!!!!!!!!:):)
