Why HBO's Crashing is devoting Sunday's episode to Artie Lange's drug problems
Judd Apatow and Pete Holmes discussed the Artie-centered episode, with Apatow saying: "We talked to Artie when we were shooting the show last summer and said, you know, we have an opportunity to talk about his struggles in a way that would be honest, and allow him to let people know how painful it is to have to deal with this type of addiction. He recently had some health issues and went to rehab and is doing well right now, but I think it’s very hard for him. I said, “I think it’s important to tell people you don’t wanna have this happen to you, and to stay away from this at all costs.” Artie was very brave about being willing to address this creatively."

Apple cancels Elvis Presley miniseries with The Weinstein Company amid Harvey Weinstein scandal
The Weinstein Company-produced 10-part Elvis miniseries was in its early development stages, which made it easier for Apple to pull the plug and, likely, distance itself from Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment scandal. According to Deadline, “Weinstein Television had partnered with the Elvis Presley estate in 2016 to create an eight- to 10-part television biopic that gave the company all music rights and access to shoot in the singer’s Graceland home and to the King’s automobiles, clothes and jets.”
