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. Actually, to be more accurate, "Looking for Fidel," is the second Castro documentary from Stone, although it will be the first to be seen by all but a few early festival attendees.

Tony Soprano may whack the networks this Sunday -- again. And like "Big Pussy" Bonpensiero before them, the victims seem resigned to their fate. As "The Sopranos" returns for its fifth season on HBO, there's a nagging question hanging over America's broadcast networks: What happened to Sundays? In a sign of larger changes shaking the television industry, the broadcasters are facing some huge problems on what was once their biggest night.

HBO's partnership with veteran producer Steven Bochco is breaking up. The pay cable network has announced it is not moving forward with Bochco's proposed "Marriage" series, a drama centering on a married New York City couple and set entirely in their bedroom. Executives at the network said they didn't feel the bedroom-only setting could be sustained for multiple episodes. Bochco, meanwhile, is developing something with which he's had much more success: a new police drama.

It was nearly 90 years ago, in the formative years of cinema, when a film crew from the then movie capital of Fort Lee, N.J., descended on a tiny, war-torn Mexican border town. They were there to capture the star power of revolutionary general Pancho Villa, shooting battle scenes that were choreographed with the full and richly compensated cooperation of the leader himself.
