Tonight’s season finale of Game of Thrones will be one of HBO’s most watched episodes of their year, so it was the perfect time to promote their upcoming slate of programming. Shortly before the season finale, HBO aired promos for the new seasons of Eastbound & Down, The Newsroom, and Boardwalk Empire; the new series True Detective and Hello Ladies; and Greg Mottola‘s upcoming comedy, Clear History. Most of these functioned as announcement trailers. We’re still fairly early in the summer, and most of these programs won’t arrive until we’re firmly in the fall; True Detective won’t even show up until 2014. But if you’re eager for The Newsroom, it’s a substantial new trailer.
Hit the jump to check out the promos, and come back later tonight when Allison posts her recap of the season finale of Game of Thrones. As a side note to GoT fans, we’ll be talking about the series on this week’s Collision when we record on Tuesday.
