HBO To End “Big Love” After Fifth Season. HBO is ending its polygamy-themed series “Big Love.” Creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer said that the show’s fifth season will be its last. They said in a statement obtained by Deadline, “When we created Big Love in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell.” “While in the writers’ room this year shaping our fifth season, we discovered that we were approaching the culmination of that story.” “Big Love” stars Bill Paxton as the Henrickson patriarch who is married to three wives – Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny, and Ginnifer Goodwin. It has been nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmy Awards last year. Sevigny won Best Supporting Actress for her role as the second wife in 2009. The fifth season will premiere on January 16.

First Season Of HBO’s “Hung” Comes To DVD, Blu-ray. “Hung: The Complete First Season” is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray Hi-Def. The HBO series, which focuses on a man with a most unorthodox way to deal with his personal economic crisis, was released on home format June 22 to coincide with the second season’s June 27 premiere. The DVD contains plenty of special features for followers of the show. Ray Drecker (Thomas Jane) is a Detroit high school history teacher and basketball coach whose recent life has reflected his team’s performance on the court: one long losing streak. Suffering a divorce, neighborhood harassment, a house fire and an insurmountable amount of debt, Ray is reduced to living out of a tent in his backyard. Desperate for money, he decides to employ the single asset in his life — his manhood. Teaming up with his friend Tanya, (Jane Adams), a failed poet who has her own financial difficulties, he embarks on a life as a gigolo that he must keep hidden from his family and colleagues. Also starring Charlie Saxton and Sianoa Smit-McPhee as Ray’s teenage twin children; Eddie Jemison as their stepfather; and Anne Heche as Ray’s unhappy ex-wife, the show debuted on premium cable network HBO in 2009. Among the team working on the critically acclaimed, award-winning series — nominated for Golden Globes for Jane and Adams —are Oscar winner Alexander Payne, and married writing team Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson. Comparable to cable shows like AMC’s “Breaking Bad” or Showtime’s “Weeds,” featuring average folks taking up a life of crime to pay the bills, the DVD and Blu-ray include extras such as audio commentaries from show creators, behind-the-scenes segments and the featurettes “The Women of ‘Hung’” and “Ray and Tanya’s Personal Ads.” “Hung: The Complete First Season” retails for $39.98 on DVD and $49.99 on Blu-ray.
“True Blood” Getting Comic Book Treatment. HBO is sinking its teeth into a “True Blood” comic book. The cable network announced that the vampire drama is getting a comic book treatment with a “completely different story.”
Creator Alan Ball stated in a video message at the Wonder Con in San Francisco, “I am very excited to be introducing the ‘True Blood’ comic book series. These graphic novels are a great companion to the series and we are pleased that the popularity of the show is allowing it to branch out into different mediums.” “It will definitely exist in the same world, follow the same laws, the same mythology, but they’re different. It’s a completely different story than the one on TV.” The new project, to be available in both print and digital formats, will involve artists David Messina and J. Scott Bell. Ball, along with series writers Elisabeth Finch and Kate Barnow, developed the plot. David Tischman and Mariah Huehner co-wrote. The IDW Publishing comic series will still follow the adventures of the human Sookie and her vampire lover Bill Compton. It is set to premiere at San Diego Comic Con in July.
