New Showtime series to bow in January

'Shameless,' 'Episodes' launch on consecutive nights

Showtime will premiere new series “Shameless” with William H. Macy and “Episodes” with Matt LeBlanc on back-to-back nights in January

“Shameless,” which co-stars Emmy Rossum and is exec produced by John Wells and Paul Abbott, will launch Jan. 9 at 10 p.m. “Episodes,” will bow Jan. 10 at 10:30 p.m., following the season-four premiere of “Californication.”

Adapted from a long-running Blighty series, “Shameless” stars Macy as a heavy-drinking, working-class dad of six, the oldest of which is played by Rossum. “Episodes” will help illustrate the possibilities and perils of bringing a U.K. series to the U.S: LeBlanc plays a version of himself starring in an adaptation of a highbrow British show into an American sitcom.

The BBC and Showtime are co-producing “Episodes,” which was created by and is exec produced LeBlanc’s fellow “Friends” alum David Crane along with Jeffrey Klarik. Jimmy Mulville also exec produces.
