dirt premieres tonight!
January 2, 2007 MICHAEL KNUDSEN

good morning everyone! is everybody ready to get back to work? TV has been seriously sucking ass over the past few weeks but tonight all that changes – the much advertised & hyped dirt finally premieres tonight over on FX! like i mentioned before i had the good fortune to have already seen the first three episodes (don’t worry – no spoilers will escape) and it’s for sure different than anything you’ve seen recently…

courteney cox-arquette (although she drops the arquette for the show’s credits) is amazing as ‘lucy spiller’ – a ruthless editor-in-chief of a tabloid magazine who will stop at nothing to secure a hot selling cover – and she has her own paparrazzi henchman named ‘don konkey’ – played brilliantly by ian hart – who turns out to be a little schizo and one of the best characters! it’s all good stuff – trust me! i’ll be posting weekly on the show (it will grow on you – just give it a chance) as it’s one that i’ve picked out to promote & crusade – only because i really enjoyed it – no one pitched me on it – this is all of my own doing! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!

Powerful tabloid editor Lucy Spiller (Courteney Cox) will stop at nothing to dig up the Hollywood dirt her readers crave. Together with schizophrenic paparazzo Don Konkey, Lucy lands a new source, struggling actor Holt McLaren, who plans to trade tips on his movie-star girlfriend, Julia Mallory, for good press. What none of them yet realize is that the truth can extract a heavy price on those who exploit it. Written & Directed by Matthew Carnahan.
