Are you a fan of HBO’s recently cancelled DEADWOOD? Do you happen to have an extra 60 million dollars lying around? (who doesn’t?). If so, you can help save DEADWOOD. Creator David Milch always planned DEADWOOD as a four chapter series. Hoping to make his vision a reality, Milch is looking for a generous benefactor to help save the show and give him one more season (12 episodes).
“I’m doing what I can,” Milch says. “Any financial participation could take the pressure off. HBO hasn’t said no… . If I were a gambling guy, which I am, I’d say odds are less than even money.”
Milch says he’s looking at any avenue for funds, including casino tie-ins, theme parks as well as the actual commnity of Deadwood
The third (and most likely final) season of DEADWOOD premieres June 11 on HBO. With a huge ensemble cast and lavish period sets, production costs are north of $5 million an episode. A full season’s order is 12 episodes.
