Sopranos Creator Starts New Series for HBO

Sopranos creator David Chase is coming back to HBO to start a new miniseries about the start and rise of the golden age of Hollywood.

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.)

Finke describes the premise of the series:

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.

No news as to when production will start, but once we get word of any more info, we'll post it here, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, let us know what you think: Is Chase the "golden boy" HBO needs to stay on the top of people's watch lists, or did that last episode of the Sopranos leave you with a bad taste in your mouth for anything more from the producer?

Let us know your thoughts below.
