Sopranos creator prepares HBO mini-series

As HBO continues its attempt to revamp its creative identity, the network has turned to David Chase, the man behind its most successful series ever, The Sopranos.

Chase will write and executive produce a new mini-series, A Ribbon of Dreams, which will chronicle the early days of Hollywood, beginning in 1913 with legendary figures like Billy Wilder. The series has an ambitious agenda that moves from the silent era to the pristine days of old Hollywood.

Chase joins fellow HBO prodigy David Simon (The Wire), who is working on a mini-series for the network about the Lincoln assassination.
