HBO Picks Up Milch Cop Show

Landing his third drama pilot at the network n five years, HBO has picked up David Milch’s Last of the Ninth.

After exploring the worlds of the western (Deadwood) and surf culture (John from Cincinnati), the new show will return Milch to his NYPD Blue roots.  The drama will be set in 1972 New York.

“It is about an older detective’s mentoring of a young detective returned from Vietnam in a department fiscally crippled, under attack by revolutionaries, and which has been brought by allegations of systemic corruption into public disrepute,” Milch said.

Milch co-wrote the show alongside his fellow NYPD Blue executive producer Bill Clark, who was a former New York homicide detective. The duo wrote the pilot before the writers strike and will executive produce the show after the strike is settled.

This is the first development from Milch’s new development deal with HBO, of which he signed this past August.
