If you have held onto some tiny hope that those series-wrapping "Deadwood" movies would get made, please please PLEASE! put it aside. HBO is releasing a complete-series box on Dec. 9, and the new extras incljude "creator David Milch’s discussion on what would have happened had the Deadwood series continued." Detailed announcement after the jump.
Welcome to Deadwood…a hell of a place to make your fortune, and a hell of a place to visit when HBO Home Entertainment makes the full series available in a 19-disc DVD set on December 9, 2008 – just in time for holiday gift-giving. Hailed as “the best drama on television” by Rolling Stone, Deadwood: The Complete Series follows the birth of Deadwood, an American frontier town where lawlessness and greed reign and colorful characters and language abound. Unflinching and wickedly inventive, Deadwood: The Complete Series includes never-before-seen content, including a discussion on the conclusion of the show with series creator David Milch.
Winner of a Peabody Award, a Golden Globe® Award and multiple Emmy® Awards, Deadwood captured the imagination of critics and viewers alike with its mix of fictional and real-life characters and events. From outlaws, entrepreneurs, ex-soldiers and racketeers, to Chinese laborers, prostitutes, city slickers and gunfighters, the richest gold strike in American history lured everyone to this outlaw settlement – a place where life was unpredictable and dangerous and where everything, and everyone, had a price.
Created and executive produced by David Milch (Emmy®-winning Hill Street Blues), Deadwood cast members include: Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker, Jim Beaver, W. Earl Brown, Dayton Callie, Kim Dickens, Brad Dourif, Anna Gunn, John Hawkes, Jeffrey Jones, Paula Malcomson, Leon Rippy, William Sanderson, Robin Weigert, Sean Bridgers, Titus Welliver, Brent Sexton, Bree Seanna Wall and Powers Boothe.
