'Entourage' Creator Takes New Project to Wall Street

HBO and Doug Ellin, creator and executive producer of Entourage, have agreed to another series based on a close-knit group of men with cash to burn, this time set in New York environs. Ellin refers to the show as a “mature version of ‘Entourage’ set on Wall Street”, based on college friends of the writer that went on to careers netting upwards of 40 million yearly. “They make Vince look like a peasant,” said Ellin. As he described to Variety, “It’s a comedy, but it will be more mature than Entourage.” The forty-something central character and friends “will be dealing with grown-up issues such as marriage, getting older and working within the professional ranks.”

Entourage, which continues the second segment of it’s third season next year, has already been renewed by HBO for a fourth. And wouldn’t you know, just as Hollywood was enamored with the idea of a real Aquaman film, after seeing the faux-production on the show, word is swirling that truth is stranger than (or follows) fiction again – if you caught the midseason cliffhanger, this will ring a bell – I Slept With Joey Ramone, anyone?
