What is John from Cincinnati About?

“I don’t know what it’s about. I don’t know the bottom line,” “John From Cincinnati” mastermind David Milch told Craig Ferguson Thursday night. “But if God were trying to reach out to us, and if he felt a certain urgency about it: That’s what it’s about.”
And why, pray tell, would He feel a certain urgency? For the traditional reasons, one expects (and hopes).

The second season, if it materializes, should be very interesting.

Ferguson also asked him if there would be more Deadwood. Last week, new HBO original programming chief Richard Plepler told those assembled for HBO's TCA presentation that it was "50/50" -- and he wasn't even sure Milch wanted to do it. Which was obviously bullshit. He's not sure *he* wants to do it, because it's something his predecessor (Chris Albrecht) committed to.

"Will there be more “Deadwood”?

“One hopes,” Milch told Ferguson and his CBS late-night audience. “It’s kind of a fluid situation over [at HBO] right now.”
No shit.
