    HBO Picks Up PTSD Drama 'Laughs Unlimited' From 'Rampart' & 'The Messenger' Director Oren Moverman

    HBO has had a good year with their new comedy projects. “Girls” and “Veep” were both fantastic, while even Ricky Gervais’ “Life’s Too Short” seems to have received a far warmer reception on the channel than it did in its native U.K. On the drama front the only new show we got from them was “The News...
