HBO has picked up to series Linda Bloodworth-Thomason's one-hour comedy "12 Miles of Bad Road", starring Lily Tomlin, and the half-hour drama "In Treatment", starring Gabriel Byrne and executive produced by Mark Wahlberg.
The premium cable network has ordered 40 episodes of "Treatment", from Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson, who also executive produce HBO's "Entourage". The number of episodes for "Road" is yet to be determined.
"Road", from "Designing Women" creator Bloodworth-Thomason, stars Tomlin as the matriarch of a wealthy Texas family whose real estate business and absurd wealth complicate the simplest family matters.
The hourlong pilot was directed by Michael Engler. HBO's brass considered turning the project into a 30-minute series but decided to keep the format intact.
The pilot, which HBO Entertainment produced in association with Mozark Prods., co-starred Gary Cole, Mary Kay Place, Katherine LaNasa, Kim Dickens, Eliza Coupe, Leslie Jordan, Ivana Milicevic, David Andrews, Sean Bridgers, Texas Battle and Cameron Richardson.
