HBO's Entourage is a sleeper hit
This could be the best show on TV you're not watching. It's executive produced by Mark Walberg and scores TONS of awesome cameos from everyone from Bob Sagget to Mandy Moore.
It's about a young actor and his posse; one is his manager, one is his brother, one is just pot-smoking freeloader - and all are his best friends. The reason I watch is the superagent Ari Gold - played by Jeremy Piven - who steals every scene. I suspect each of these actors has a basis in reality for the roles that they play because they ring so true. From trying to score "sloppy seconds" from the actor's leftover women, to freeloading freebies at every turn, the posse is a brilliant representation of 20-something Hollywood. If you have HBO, catch this show.
