“ Why it works? - It’s a miracle.
A look inside the writers room of #Homeland:
The pilot of season 2 proved that Showtimes critically acclaimed drama deserved the Emmy sweep, collecting 4 awards including ‘Best Drama’, ending a four-year winning streak by AMC’s “Mad Men”.
In what was one of the strongest second season comebacks, ‘The Smile’ picks up 6 months after Carrie’s psychotic breakdown and Brody’s failed suicide attack. The writers throw the characters right back into turmoil after they had seemed to settle into calm lives - Carrie as an ESL teacher, Brody as Congressman. But ‘Nothing is as it seems”.
The season 2 pilot delivered 1.7 million total viewers for Showtime and a total of 2.1 million including Sundays re-runs — giving the show its highest viewership total ever and a 60% jump compared to the Season 1 premiere last year.
