Chase, along with fellow Soprano's exec prod, Brad Grey are re-teaming to create the new series, titled "Ribbon of Dreams" which initially sounded a little...well, gay. But as Nikki Finke mentions, the line actually comes from Orsen Welles who was quoted describing film that way. (so that makes it OK.)
Beginning in 1913, it will follow two men, "one a college-educated mechanical engineer, the other a cowboy with a violent past, who form an unlikely producing partnership as employees of D.W. Griffith and together become pioneers and then powers for a time in motion pictures". Crossing career paths with John Ford, John Wayne, Raoul Walsh, Bette Davis, Billy Wilder and others, the miniseries will cover the age of rough-hewn silent Westerns, to the golden era of talkies and the studio system, to the auteur movement, to television, and finally to the present day.
