Milch Doing NYPD Cop Drama

Variety reports that HBO and “Deadwood” creator David Milch are prepping what could be his next project – a NYPD police drama.

Sources say the project will follow a Vietnam veteran who returns to the U.S. in the early 1970s and joins the New York City police force.

With Milch’s “John From Cincinnati” now officially canned, the cops project has now been revived. The anticipated pair of “Deadwood” movies to finish off that series is sadly seen as a longshot as the actors move on to other roles.
