Industry Miniseries For HBO!!

I am – Hercules!!
“The invention of cinema and subsequent growth of the Hollywood film industry” will be the subject of a miniseries that will return “The Sopranos” mastermind David Chase to HBO. From the channel's press release:
Entitled A RIBBON OF DREAMS, the miniseries will begin in 1913 and follow two men, one a college-educated mechanical engineer, the other a cowboy with a violent past, who form an unlikely producing partnership and together become pioneers and then powers for a time in motion pictures. Chase will write and executive produce the miniseries, as well as direct the initial episodes.
The miniseries will follow the two main characters as they begin as employees of D.W. Griffith, and then cross career paths with John Ford, John Wayne, Raoul Walsh, Bette Davis, Billy Wilder and others who gave shape to Hollywood as it grew from the age of rough-hewn silent Westerns, to the golden era of talkies and the studio system, to the auteur movement, to television, and finally to the present day.
Assuming both of the main characters are 20 in 1913, they’ll be 116 years old in 2009. Legs!
