Deadwood movies won't air until 2008 at the earliest
You know, it's been so long since I've seen the last episode of Deadwood that I'll have to go back and watch it again to prepare for the two movies that will end the western saga. I think the last scene showed Gerald McRaney on his way out of town, probably heading to Jericho, Kansas.
But there's no rush. According to this story at the Chicago Tribune, not only are the two movies not going to air until 2008 at the earliest, but (according to cast member W. Earl Brown), the stars of the show haven't even signed contracts to appear in the TV flicks. But creator David Milch said a couple of months that he is "committed" to finishing the movies.
Right now Milch is busy working on his new HBO show John From Cincinnati, which premieres June 10. It stars Austin Nichols as a surfer who moves to Cincinnati, partly to get revenge on the Yost family, which wronged his family years earlier. The show also stars Rebecca DeMornay, Bruce Greenwood, Ed O'Neill, and Luke Perry.
