    HBO HF TV: Matt Damon Is A Red Herring

    Brian Koppelman and David Levien, the duo that brought us “Ocean’s 13” and “Rounders” have signed on to write “Alpha Cats,” HBO’s new show about hedge funds. So “AC” will either be a good series with frequent guest appearances by Matt Damon or a really boring one that looks and sounds exactly like its predecessors […]

    Art Imitates Life: HBO HF TV

    Thought about HBO’s new show about hedge funds (working title: Sextourage, although, in all seriousness, they should call it Arbitrage), lately? As in, are you going to watch it because there’s nothing else on but will hate yourself the whole time because it’ll probably be completely unrealistic and not know its longs from its shorts? […]

    HBO HF TV: Let’s End This Now

    If your office is anything like the DealBreaker one, there’s been a cloud of emotions hanging over it since the tragic events of 6/10. Some of us feel robbed, others vindicated, others ill. For the most part, no one here will ever trust another human being again, either because we’ll never have it as good […]

    Sex & The Managing Director

    Think Conde Nast’s Portfolio meets Sex and the City. At least that’s how we imagine the pitch meetings went when Darren Star pitched his new show, Cashmere Mafia, which is about four professional women in New York City. But where SATC emphasized the relationships of the women (it was, after all, based upon a Candace […]

    A Million Dollar Opportunity

    Are your dreams haunted by the image of Tim Sykes? Do you stay up nights wondering what it would be like to be in the same room as that smoking piece of man meat, CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla? Have you been jonesing to take a ride out to scenic Englewood Cliffs, NJ? Well dream, wonder and […]

    Wall Street Warriors, (Legitimately) Episode 2: Postmortem

    Bess here, done with episode one and ready and raring to go with episode two. (And ready, dying, to get back to the first-person plural. I feel naked without it). If the first episode of Wall Street Warriors knocked your socks off, hold on to your pants, because episode two is like the A.D. to […]

    Wall Street Warriors, Episode 2: Postmortem

    But first, a postmortem on episode one. By now you’re likely asking yourselves a few questions—“why is DealBreaker covering the WSW pilot a week late”; “what is this, this Wall Street Warriors”; and “have you ever a been with a woman.” All excellent questions. First of all, we do things differently ‘round these parts. We […]

Update: Well, looks like we’ve got the night off. Team OTM just emailed to say their dance card was all full for the night. So instead […]
