David Milch + HBO + William Faulkner = Television Heaven

David Milch is extending his relationship with HBO. Milch, whose latest series for the pay cable network, Luck, launches in January, has inked a new multi-year deal with HBO where he has been based for the past eight years. Under the new extension, in addition to executive producing Luck with Michael Mann, Milch will develop series and movies based on books by Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner William Falkner. Milch’s Redboard Prods has inked a deal with the literary estate of the iconic American writer who penned novels, short stories, a play and screenplays as well as poetry and essays. The pact covers all of the 19 novels and 125 short stories in the estate, as well as other works, with the exception of those currently optioned by other parties.

This is pretty much my sweet spot. Here’s a quick glimpse into Milch’s new HBO series, Luck:

    I don’t think so. I think I faved it. Or read it on Google Reader. Or materialized it with my mind. I’m not sure how information works anymore.

    Well said. You, me, Aaron, Tim, and Amanda must have dreamed this into being.

    Ah, I searched your twitter feed but it must have been below the fold.
