'Action' - the producer's 'Entourage'

Awhile back friend recommended a TV show Action with Jay Mohr and loaned me his DVDs. I forgot about until it seeing a Spocko's Brain post today on a book on American hucksters. Action, originally slated for HBO but aired on Fox, is really a cartoony version of Entourage but from the point of view of a producer. Both shows have pretty good music, especially Entourage. Perhaps an Ari Goldman (HBO mashup), supposedly modeled on the producer brother of Rahm Emmanuel, was too much hero for both HBO and Fox.

The good news is that Action is currently on Hulu and Spike, which has some DVD extras.
