HBO proudly presents the second season of the award winning series 'Huff'

NMumbai, August 16, 2006: HBO, the world?s leading movie channel, returns with the most critically acclaimed Emmy? Award winning and Golden Globe? Award nominated series Huff Season 2 premiering exclusively for the first time on Indian TV starting 24th August at 11:15 pm and thereafter every Thursday right after the Prime-Time Movie with two back-to-back brand new episodes.

The first season of `HUFF?, premiered on HBO last year, dexterously chronicled the comedy and the pathos of a psychiatrist, Dr. Craig ?Huff? Huffstodt, entangled in a web of dilemma and dysfunction in his personal life. This year, HBO celebrates the comeback of the series with Heff Season 2, starring Hank Azaria (3-time Emmy? Award Winner for Actor, as also an Emmy? Award 2005 Lead Actor nominee), Oliver Platt (of ?Kinsey? and ?Ice Harvest? fame) and Blythe Danner (of ?Meet the Parents? and ?Meet the Fockers? fame). While this season showcases the gripping storylines that are distinctly characteristic of the series, it also welcomes Emmy? Award winner Sharon Stone and Academy Award? winner Anjelica Huston as guest stars in multi-episode arcs.

Celebrating the premiere of HUFF Season 2, Shruti Bajpai, Country Manager, HBO South Asia, said, ?We are proud to be associated with an award winning series like Huff. This special presentation of Huff Season 2 is part of our constant endeavor to bring the best of English programming to our patrons.?

Returning for the second season, HUFF continues examining the professional and personal life of a psychiatrist, Dr. Craig `Huff? Huffstodt (Hank Azaria), who finds he?s drifting perilously close to the border between sanity and insanity. According to HUFF creator Bob Lowry, ?HUFF is about the unpredictability of human nature. It is an episodic drama about people and their interactions with each other ? not so much about what they do as much as how they react to what?s happening around them. We?re not a formulaic show that you typically see on television?

HUFF Sesaon 2, spanning 13 episodes, finds the Huffstodt family ties slowly coming undone. While Dr. Craig is still clad in the guilt of the suicide of a 15-year-old gay patient in his office, he is also deeply disturbed by the paranoid ramblings of his schizophrenic younger brother Teddy (Andy Comeau). Huff?s once close friend, Russell Tupper (Oliver Platt) continues to be an adorable alcoholic misogynist drug addict. And HUFF finds an attractive new client Dauri Rathbun (Sharon Stone), who is in desperate need of his legal advice.

HBO brings the best of Hollywood by premiering the top blockbuster movies on television first in South Asia through exclusive licensing deals with four major Hollywood studios ? Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment (Columbia/ TriStar), Universal and Warner Bros.

Prime time viewing on HBO includes HBO Blockbuster Of The Month, a special television event that premieres a mega blockbuster movie every month, HBO Saturday Nights, which premieres a new box office hit each week throughout the year; HBO Sunday Super Hits, which showcases the blockbuster hits, star-studded hits, favourite genre hits, Asian hits, highly acclaimed hits and so much more. In addition, HBO features at least 3- 4 new movie showcases every month to offer viewers an interesting mix of Hollywood movies based on exciting themes.
