With big thanks to Pablo for the research on this info... September 2010 premieres: Starz Highlights: Starz Saturday Premieres: Did You Hear About the Morgans, Dear John, and Armored. 9/4 - Zombieland (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin) 9/11 - Did You Hear About the Morgans (Hugh Grant, Sarah Jessica Parker) 9/18 - Dear John (Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Richard Jenkins) 9/25 - Armored (Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne) Starz also has the return of their original stand-up comedy series, "Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-up". Returns on Fridays beginning September 10. To get ready for the new season, there will be a marathon from Season 4 of the series airing on Thursday, September 9 featuring four back-to-back episodes starting at 11PM (east). For some reason I'm thinking that Starz could have done a better job of picking what to premiere on 9/11, but perhaps that's just me. Encore Highlights: a Labor Day Marathon on Monday, September 6th called "When Sequels Attack II" featuring the sequels to Rambo, Die Hard, Rush Hour, The Karate Kid, American Pie, Police Academy and others. There's also a 10-film spotlight on recent Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges. HBO Touted via HBO's August downloadable guide: HBO original series Boardwalk Empire (premieres Sunday, 9/19/2010, 9PM east) with returners Bored to Death and Eastbound & Down. Absolutely NO movie premieres touted in the "Coming in ..." next month part of the downloadable guide info.

Created by (Sopranos writer) Terence Winter, with Martin Scorsese, and Mark Wahlberg showing Executive Producer credits (and Scorsese carrying a Director credit).

That's a little surprising, but great news for Showtime fans that haven't yet seen The Hurt Locker. I count myself as one that hasn't yet seen the film, but this might present the opportunity for me. The Movie Channel It looks like The Movie Channel will be continuing their Splatterday on Saturdays line-up of horror themed films (double feature of horror themed movies on Saturday nites actually). (If you aren't a horror fan then it seems that The Movie Channel is going to have slim pickin's for you ) Some epix news (from The Futon Critic): On September 18, EPIX will turn to Louis C.K., writer, director, editor and star of the critically acclaimed FX series Louie, for the television premiere of the unique and dynamic live stand-up concert film Louis C.K.: Hilarious. --- Thanks again Pablo, Phrelin and others for helping to get this info together!
