Agents on high alert

HBO welcomes back 'Entourage'

As for how he contrives the show’s reality, creator Doug Ellin said he’s “been around for 17 years. I’m an observational guy and I spent a lot of time not working.”

After-party was at the new Social Hollywood club, where the two-floor venue was given over to a scene worthy of the “Entourage” entourage, with belly dancers, “drag queen bingo,” roller derby and non-stripper erotic burlesque.
