Updates on 'Deadwood' and 'John From Cincinnati'

The summer months of 2007 will mark a bittersweet period for certain HBO subscribers: expect to see the beginning of the end for David Milch’s Deadwood, as well as the start of a new era, with the premiere of the writer/creator’s next series – John from Cincinnati.

HBO has greenlit 12 episodes for John, described as “equal parts ‘surf series, family drama and David Milch show.'” The series stars Austin Nichols as “John”, along with co-stars Bruce Greenwood, Luis Guzman, Ed (Al Bundy) O’Neil, Rebecca De Mornay and Brian Van Holt. And and although there’s been no official word, former 90210 star Luke Perry was reportedly involved in scenes for the pilot, shooting for which began in Imperial Beach, CA last month. Production on future episodes will kick off in November, with the premiere scheduled for next summer.

Also next summer, the first of the two 2-hour movies planned to mark the conclusion of Deadwood will air, according to Milch. None of the cast members have been confirmed to return, although Milch expects most, if not all of them back. Via Variety.
