Englewood, Colo., December 10, 2007 � "Head Case" and "Hollywood Residential," Starz Entertainment's two original comedy series offer a little something for the celebrity head and home. "Head Case" (now a half-hour series) premieres Wednesday, January 23 at 10:00 p.m. along with the new series "Hollywood Residential" following at 10:30 p.m. (et/pt). Bringing Tinstletown into more than 16 million homes, both shows present a slightly skewed "realistic look" at La-La-Land, lovingly dedicated to the "nuts and bolts" of showbiz.
Alexandra Wentworth stars as the "It" therapist to the stars in "Head Case." Dr. Elizabeth Goode is judgmental, unconventional and could use a good shrink herself. Her days are filled with a "who's who" client list from the world of entertainment, sports and music, plus leaving ample time for shopping. Veteran comedian Steve Landesberg ("Barney Miller") stars as Goode's office partner Dr. Myron Finkelstein. Special guest stars making an appearance on the couch this season include: Jeff Goldblum, Greg Grunberg, David Alan Grier, Jason Lewis, Joel Madden, Cindy Margolis, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Andy Dick, Rosanna Arquette and Jonathan Silverman among others.
"Hollywood Residential" follows a fictional, faltering celebrity home makeover show on a fledgling home improvement cable network. Tony King (Adam Paul), a frustrated, under-achieving actor and "inept as they come" carpenter and his sexy new co-host, Lila Mann (Lindsey Stoddart), take their show to the homes of Hollywood celebrities. However, Tony has more on his mind than home improvement and tries to take advantage of his guest stars to further his own stalled acting career � generally leading to terribly embarrassing situations. "Hollywood Residential" features makeovers at the homes of Paula Abdul, Tom Arnold, John Cho, Carmen Electra, Chris Kattan, Jamie Kennedy, Beverly D'Angelo and Cheryl Hines, who serves double duty as one of the show's executive producers.
"With these two comedies from Starz, we enter an exciting new time of original series production," says Michael Ruggiero, vice president of original programming for Starz Entertainment.
"Head Case" is produced in association with UNCLE Film + Television. Robert Bauer, Eric Bonniot, Jason Farrand and Alexandra Wentworth are executive producers.
"Hollywood Residential" is produced in association with Principato-Young Entertainment with Paul Young, Cheryl Hines, Peter Principato and Andy Bobrow as executive producers.
Michael Ruggiero, Robert Markovich and Stephan Shelanski are executives in charge of production for Starz Entertainment.
