David Milch's John From Cincinatti - TCA Report
Milch did get a bit esoteric though, and said that the show takes place on "the edge of the coordinates of reality." It has a vague aura of Six Feet Under around it, even though the subjects are entirely different, and I tend to like shows that aren't laid out for you in black and white.
Also, he hasn't toned down the swearing at all from his Deadwood days. The opening scene in the clip has Mitch Yost (Bruce Greenwood), casually strolling past someone who came out to watch him surf and ask him to consider coming out of retirement. His response? "Go f*ck yourself." Although strangely, we didn't hear one utterance of 'c*cksucker.'
- David Milch to Deadwood fans: "It's my deepest hope that in the scheme of things, Deadwood fans can forgive us and give it a chance."
- Milch on drug use: "I was involved in a subsidiary project involving nitrous oxide, and the great thing about it is that when it hits ... everyone is right where they're supposed to be ... and we're all just riding along."
- After Milch went on about his drug use, views on surfing (he's not surfer) and thoughts about life, someone finally asked Bruce Greenwood and Rebecca de Mornay a question. They wanted to know how it was different working for David Milch than someone else, and Greenwood said: "I think you've just witnessed the difference right here."
- Milch on working on Deadwood: "Well, basically the deal is: I'm a psychopath. I went in knowing I had four seasons on my contract. When I went in and pitched them Deadwood, I pitched it as a project set in Rome during the time of Nero. Then I found out that already had a show set in Rome. Do I sound like I know what the hell I'm talking about?!"
