Entourage Q&A with Doug Ellin
Tuesday, June 12, 2007 - reddit
Doug Ellin is the creator of HBO's Entourage
, which a lot of people seem to like, but I can't watch because I don't have HBO. It seems like a show I'd really like too, which is a shame. Here's an excerpt from the Q&A by Deborah Soloman
at the New York Times.
Deborah Soloman: “Entourage” is itself a study in “shortcut culture,” to coin a phrase. The male characters don’t work very hard, except at playing video games and having casual sex and wanting to be famous. Is the show intended as a sendup of Hollywood excess?
Doug Ellin: No. In fact when we first started, HBO would say satire, and I said this is not satire. This is scripted reality. I consider the show 100 percent realistic. I have friends who wake up in the morning and want a Bentley and they go get it. I find it funny.
I don't find that funny at all, but then again, I am a raging liberal socialist. Good interview, go check it out.Topics: Television, Doug Ellin, Entourage
