ABSTRACT
The article focuses on an episode of "Entourage" from HBO which featured CNBC anchor Joe Kernen reporting that the fictional movie "Aquaman" starring the character of Vincent Chase has been beaten at the boxoffice by the real movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," from Walt Disney. This opening storyline by the TV program is seen as a marketing campaign by HBO aimed at erasing the line that separates the show's fiction and the reality of the showbiz industry.
