Summer DVD Club: Six Feet Under, Episodes 1-3
Kevin Collier

So far, we're loving how Six Feet Under tempers the ugliness of the death business with fantastic, sort-of-magic-realist cutaways.

Oscar winner Anna Paquin is making her first foray into series television as the lead in True Blood, an HBO drama pilot from the creator of Six Feet Under.

Lifetime in a comedic State of Mind

Lifetime Television has given a series pickup to the Lili Taylor drama State of Mind, which is set to debut in the summer.

State of Mind is described as a quirky, comedic drama series about a brilliant take-charge therapist (Taylor) whose personal problems rival those of her eclectic and offbeat patients.

The ensemble cast also includes Derek Riddell, Mido Hamada, Kevin Chamberlin, Lolita Davidovich, and Devon Gummersall. The pilot was written by author and practicing psychotherapist Amy Bloom. Taylor's credits include HBO's Six Feet Under and the 1996 feature I Shot Andy Warhol.

The series becomes the second new drama to be ordered for 2007, after Army Wives, whose launch has been delayed to June from March, both for competitive reasons and to allow more time to launch the show properly. Army Wives features an ensemble cast including Kim Delaney and Catherine Bell.
