BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - It's been six years since HBO first announced that "Sopranos" creator David Chase has a new project in the works, and according to the network's programming chief, it's still happening.
"He's writing. I have seen pages," Michael Lombardo told TV critics at the annual summer press tour.
The story was first presented in 2009 as a miniseries called "A Ribbon of Dreams," dramatizing the timeline of the Hollywood film industry.
"I think he has something really unbelievable, but he had to figure out is it a limited series, an open-ended series. He showed us two hours' worth of material, and I trust I'll see (more) by the end of the year. And I'm sure we'll go from there. I fully expect we'll be back up here during my tenure with David Chase and a new show."
