Jeremy Piven might be done with Entourage, but he is clearly not ready to abandon involvement with television altogether. So, he’s been looking for a new project. Let’s see… what’s more, or at least just as interesting, as a Queens kid who becomes a famous actor and moves to Hollywood with his half-brother and two best friends, wherein they personify hedonism, debauchery and hijinks of all kinds? … How about glass? … Yes.
Piven’s production company, Luscious Mayhem, is developing a reality series called Blow (not like the drug) about the manufacturing of glass (not like the drug). The series will focus on Josh Cohen, a New Orleans-based glassblower, and his offbeat and eccentric colleagues and clients. For those unfamiliar with the trade, glassblowing is a method for creating glass items (bowls, vases, decorative items), for which Cohen has made quite a name and living.
The series, produced (alongside LM) by Bischoff Hervey Entertainment, is in the process of finding its home network.
