Exclusive Podcast: ‘Entourage’ Creator Dreams of New York

Jul 3, 2007  •  Post A Comment

If “Entourage” creator-executive producer Doug Ellin could shoot anywhere in the world, he’d choose New York.
In this week’s exclusive Backlot Talk podcast, Mr. Ellin says his dream is to shoot an entire season in New York. He had plans to shoot there after the show’s pilot, but budget constraints have kept “Entourage” from going there.
After Las Vegas and Sundance, the show next travels to Cannes in the season finale. The guys go there on behalf of their film “Medellin.” Mr. Ellin said shooting in Cannes in May was really challenging
“The Cannes episode was extremely difficult to pull off,” Mr. Ellin said. “The Cannes Film Festival controls all of that city during the festival and they had to let us do it. They had to give us permission. They were gracious and great, but we had to convince them — in France they don’t really know who we are.”
After Dennis Hopper’s appearance in this week’s “Malibooty” episode, next week features a guest turn by M. Night Shyamalan as a client of Ari’s.

  1. A whole season in New York would be very cool. Maybe when Vince does a Scorsese pic?
    I also like to see Ari dealing with his other clients like M. Night, I wonder if they’ll reference the “Lady in the Water” mess.
    Another great interview, thanks Melissa!

  2. medillin should go tits up and vince should be forced to do a law and order season….which he would ACTUALLY do on the NBC as well…
