Most HBO TV series don’t score big in the Nielsen ratings race, unless they’re named Game of Thrones. Of course, the pay-cable network doesn’t have to please advertisers. Instead, it wants to run the kind of programming that will breed loyal subscribers and attract new ones. Enter the Camping TV show. Does it have the right stuff to score another season? Will Camping be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An HBO comedy from Lena Dunham, Camping stars Jennifer Garner, David Tennant, Juliette Lewis, Arturo Del Puerto, Ione Skye, Janicza Bravo, Brett Gelman, Bridget Everett, Cheyenne Haynes, Duncan Joiner, Chris Sullivan, and Rhiannon Leigh Wryn. When a group of friends retreats to the lackluster Brown Bear Lake campsite for a birthday celebration, control-freak Kathryn McSorley-Jordell (Garner) is determined that everything will go off without a hitch. There’s only one thing Kathryn never counted on — another woman coming along to undermine all her plans. Their back-to-nature camping trip soon tests the marriages and friendships of the campers involved.
