Bill's first and only legal wife is Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn, Word of Honor) but he also shares the bedroom with middle wife Nicki (Chloe Sevigny, Boys Don't Cry, Dogville) and youngest wife Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin, Ed, Mona Lisa Smile). Bill also has three new adjoining houses, seven kids, and a booming hardware business. His closest friend and business partner at Home Plus, Don Embry (Joel McKinnon Miller), is also a polygamist.

Unknown after years of hard work and tired of bit parts, they write their own script and star in it. Not only do they get recognized, they become famous and win an Oscar for Best Screenplay. A dream? Hardly. It's the true story of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. And it is this fairy tale come true that inspired them to team up with American Pie producer Chris Moore, and Dimension, to create a contest and community that would open the industry to aspiring writers and directors who need a big break to jump start their dreams."-PGL website This 3rd season they are trying something completely different. First, a new network is picking up the show to give it new life. Thanks go out to the Bravo network for continuing these dreams. Second, a different studio, Dimension, has stepped up the reward to 2 million dollar to produce the movie. Third they have changed from a feel good movie to a Horror movie. Since it would be a horror movie this time, one of the greatest horror directors was called in to help produce it - Wes Craven.moreless

    Sexo Urbano is a documentary styled program spotlighting the business of sex in urban Latin American cities around the world. HBO's creative program blends sexy women and interesting information as we drive along with cab drivers from these metropolitan areas, and although the show is in Spanish, we learn quickly that the language of sex is spoken everywhere. In Bogota, Ricardo takes us to all the preferred spots for sex, like Avenue 15, known for both escorts and transvestites. In Buenos Aires, cab driver Luis Casas notes that the hot spot is Zona Rosa, also known for transvestites looking to seduce willing men. And although it is certainly a departure from the typical erotica found on late night cable, Sexo Urbano does not scrimp on the beauties. Plenty of lovely latinas can be found in each episode, with shots from around the cities and more intimate scenes as well. Erotic and informative, Sexo Urbano offers an interesting blend of substance among the genre of soft core sex programs.moreless
