Wanted: Two badass heroine’s to entertain us in this suffocating summer heat. Guess what? You can mark the box for “found.”
Showtime is promoting the return of Weeds and The Big C with a new teaser trailer that merges past clips of the shows leading ladies, meant to look as though they’re talking to each other.
The tagline for Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker on Weeds) and Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney on The Big C) this year is “Bring it On!” Considering their murky and uncertain lives, it’s a wholly appropriate sentiment for them to embrace. And if the past gives us an indication, it’s one they’re not afraid of. (Okay, maybe Cathy wasn’t up to the challenge until recently…but she’s much more fun and free now that she is. There’s a lesson there, is there not?)
Check out the video under the jump.
As for the song that is playing in the background of the trailer. I can tell you that it is not “Taboo, taboo” by Lena Philips (but that’s a video you’ll enjoy.)
