Angry Boys: New HBO Comedy Debuts January 1st

Angry Boys premiereIf you’ve marked your calendar for the premiere of HBO’s Angry Boys, get ready to erase it — again. The pay-for-view channel initially announced that the new comedy would debut on December 5th. They later moved it to January 8th.

Now, they’ve rescheduled it yet again, to January 1st. Unless HBO changes their plans again, you can catch Angry Boys on Sunday nights at 10pm. They’ve ordered 12 installments.

Here’s the editor’s note from HBO (they’ve given up on releasing full-blown press releases):

The debut date for the new HBO comedy series ANGRY BOYS has changed. The series now kicks off its 12-episode season SUNDAY, JAN. 1 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) – not Jan. 8, as previously announced – presenting two episodes back-to-back each Sunday night, with a hiatus Jan. 29 for the debut of the new drama series LUCK.

HBO will present an encore of series creator Chris Lilley’s previous series, “Summer Heights High,” Saturday evenings at 11:00 and 11:30 p.m., Dec. 3-24 on HBO2. All eight episodes of “Summer Heights High” will also be seen back-to-back before the Jan. 1 debut of ANGRY BOYS, starting that day at 6:00 p.m. on HBO2.

“Summer Heights High” will also be available on HBO On Demand Dec. 5-Jan. 2, and on HBO GO Dec. 5-31.

In addition, Chris Lilley’s award-winning series “We Can Be Heroes” will be available on HBO On Demand Dec. 5-Jan. 2, and on HBO GO Dec. 5-Jan. 1.

What do you think? Will you be tuning in to see Angry Boys? Do you think the schedule changes spell bad news for the show already?
