Deadwood: Season One DVD Special Features


Kikim Media created three special features for the DVD release of the first season of HBO’s Deadwood, which Fresh Air‘s David Bianculli said were “as good as DVD features get.” The first piece, The Real Deadwood, is a 30-minute story of the real people and lawless roots of the town that inspired the series. The other two pieces, An Imaginative Reality and The New Language of the Old West feature actor Keith Carradine in conversation with series creator David Milch about the ideas behind the show.


“You introduced a new level of thinking, creativity and intelligence to the way we had been thinking about DVD features. The Deadwood pieces quickly became the reference point within the company – the whole company – for creating content about content that isn’t promotional, self-serving, superficial, and insulting to the average viewer. The experience of working with you has been one of the proudest and most fulfilling of my recent years at HBO.”
