|After a month of what seemed like public negotiating, HBO and "Deadwood" creator-exec producer David Milch have kissed and made up, as it were, agreeing to produce a pair of two-hour specials that will serve as the show's series finale.|
|A shorter order was problematic for Milch because each episode in the first three seasons of "Deadwood" represented a single day, and he could not see how to wrap up the stories in just six days. By instead producing a pair of special event presentations, Milch will be able to write the finale using a different format and space of time.|
Not as good as a full season.. and not entirely sure how two 2 hour specials works out better than six 50 minute episodes, or even three less than two hour specials, but I guess Milch knows better than me.
At least we'll be getting some closure, unlike Carnivale rawr
