HBO is bringing more of their network series to the big screen following the recent film adaption of Sex and the City, next being Entourage after it's next and final season ends next year. HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo said “We’ll do a shorter order to finish up. We talked about six [episodes]."
He continues to discuss series creator Doug Ellin and his desire to adapt the series into a feature film. "[He] clearly wants to write a film. But he also wants to do it when the storytelling makes sense. So he is clearly thinking about how the [TV] show will end. We have a long-term relationship with Doug Ellin, and I’m sure you’ll soon see another series from him here. But next summer will definitely be the final season of “Entourage”."
The other series rumored to be brought to the big screen is the networks recent hit, True Blood, which stars Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgaard, and Anna Paquin. The series just finished the airing of it's third season and production has began on the fourth. Word is that after producing one or two other seasons of the vampire series, then it will be adapted into a feature film with creator and showrunner Alan Ball possibly sitting in the director's chair. Right now it's all speculation in regards to True Blood.
