Never far from the center of a storm, self-described filmmaker "provocateur" Spike Lee is headed to New Orleans to make a documentary for HBO examining how race and politics may have collided in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Lee says he will use "factual journalism, not creative narrative" in his look at Katrina and New Orleans, which has become a rallying point for black political activists and conspiracy theorists.

Tony Soprano isn't going down just yet. The sixth season of the critically acclaimed mob drama "The Sopranos," due in March, was supposed to be its last. But HBO said Thursday that in addition to those 12 episodes, it has now ordered eight more installments from creator David Chase. That batch will premiere in January 2007, with James Gandolfini, Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco continuing in the lead roles.

Ray Romano isn't even off the air with "Everybody Loves Raymond" yet, but he's already lined up his next project: an HBO special with buddy Kevin James. James, who stars in CBS' "The King of Queens," and Romano will document their attempt to make the cut at last February's annual pro-amateur golf tournament at Pebble Beach. The program will debut on HBO on June 18.

Kim Cattrall said she didn't want to wait any longer for more "Sex and the City," so that means costars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis won't be getting any either. At least for a while. HBO representatives said Cattrall's refusal led the cable channel to drop the idea of a feature film based on the popular series, which ended its six-season run this year.

HBO is set to air "Looking for Fidel," filmmaker Oliver Stone's long-in-the-works documentary on Cuban leader Fidel Castro, on Wednesday.
