    Get that Emmy, Don Cheadle!
    Just like Kristen says in 1:28 “God, you’re GOOD.”

    Screw your duplicate thread.   This is the official season 5 thread.  The other one was pointing out TV history being made.  You don’t like it, ban me.

    I do not have the power to ban you.

    And it is your duplicate thread.

    The season 5 premiere is already online, thanks to Showtime, so might as well kick this off.

    Showtime has mailed out the episodes #3 “Holacracy” and #6 “Johari Window” in their for-your-consideration DVD set to Emmy voters.

    Johari Window will be Don Cheadle’s directorial debut, I believe, on the show.

    Episode 5.6: Johari Window
    Written by Theo Travers; directed by Don Cheadle

    Marty’s entrée into the black-hair market on behalf of a client hits a surprising snag. Clyde’s great hope for mayor only has eyes for Jeannie. Also, Roscoe lands his first modeling gig.

    Kristen Bell has spectacular timing. As expected, Showtime pulled the plug on its best comedy running.

    http://tvline.com/2016/05/17/house-of-lies-cancelled-showtime-season-5/

    The truth is right here: House of Lies will be no more.
    Showtime has cancelled the Don Cheadle-fronted comedy, announcing that the show’s current fifth season will be its last. The series finale will air on Sunday, June 13 at 9/8c.

    “House of Lies is a comedy that has frequently been ahead of the curve,” says Showtime president David Nevins in a statement. “Over the course of its five seasons, it has tackled such hot-button topics as gender identity, wealth inequality, white privilege, police brutality, interracial relationships, and code-switching with honesty and a biting sense of humor. Matthew Carnahan and Don Cheadle have been dream partners and impeccable leaders. The core cast of Don, Kristen, Ben and Josh are one of the best comedy teams on television. They have brought the series to an incredibly satisfying conclusion with this historic final episode shot in Cuba.”

    “Creating and running HOUSE OF LIES has been a true dream gig, a creative apotheosis,” said series creator Matthew Carnahan. “Working with the remarkable team that Jessika Borsiczcky, David Walpert and I were allowed to put together, along with the incredible cast and crew, coming to work every day was a joy. Getting to work with heroes like Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell and Glynn Turman, breaking out amazing performers like Dawn Olivieri and the shockingly funny Josh Lawson; seeing Ben Schwartz, already so well-known as a comedic actor doing a deep-dive into really complex work; watching great actors like Matt Damon be willing to skewer versions of themselves; and then going out on the high note that is shooting in Cuba — these are all the kinds of reasons I got into this business in the first place.”

    I wonder if the cast already knew they were filming the series finale back then.

    I’d like to think that they knew it was the series finale, but I don’t know. The timing of this announcement feels more like a sudden cancellation. They haven’t been promoting it as the final season at all.

    The preliminary episode title of the now-series finale? “End of the Kaan” before it was switched to ‘No Es Facil’ (the Havana episode). At least Cheadle won a Golden Globe and Bell a People’s Choice (against one of the strongest fields in recent memory; Best Premium Cable Lead Actress nominees were Julia Louis Dreyfus, Claire Danes, Emmy Rossum and Lisa Kudrow). Should’ve both gotten Emmys as well, but the Emmys are too same old same old. They’re going out on a creative high and it seems like the perfect way to end things. I believe they knew the Havana trip was the end. And TV comedy will be a little less rich in quality when they’re gone.
