First look at HBO’s “The Comeback” starring Lisa Kudrow

Lisa Kudrow’s under-appreciated 2005 HBO series “The Comeback,” about a faded sitcom star who banks on reality show cameras following her return to TV, won critics but floundered in it’s fight to find an audience.  I thought it was brilliant. Sadly, in spite of an Emmy nomination for Kudrow, it was cancelled after one season.

The world wasn’t ready, in my opinion.

But now, it is.  HBO has brought Kudrow and her creative partner Michael Patrick King together again for 8 new episodes that finds Kudrow’s “Valerie Cherish” in the year 2014. And she’s still coming back.  Or at least trying to.

Beginning November 9 at 10PM on HBO.
