What Happened to the Deadwood Movies?: TV Series Finale Podcast #20

When HBO decided to end Deadwood after only three seasons, fans of the David Milch western series went ballistic.

They bombarded the cable network with letters of protest and threatened to cancel their subscriptions. HBO gave in and made a deal to air two two-hour movies. That was over six months ago and they haven’t been filmed. What happened? Will they ever be made? Tune in and find out!

    I would watch deadwood instead of the end of sunday football. I started liking it better than the sopranos

    The reason shows like Wife Swap are easy to get on air is cuz they’re cheap to make. However, seeing as how HBO is a paid network, they should be in the cream of the crop in entertainment.

    Deadwood and Carnivale were two of the best cable series ever made. But the very fact that crap like Wife Swap, Super Nanny & Pussycat Dolls can even get off the drawing board, let alone get air time tells the whole story about what sells in TV land.
    If people are not smart enough to understand it, they just won’t watch it. Cable execs have no more loyalty than the network stooges………….thats it!!
