HBO Still in Big Love


Home Box Office renewed dramatic series

Big Love

for a second season, according to HBO Entertainment president Carolyn Strauss.

Filming of new episodes will begin in August, with the new shows debuting next year.

Big Love

tells the story of Salt Lake City native Bill Henrickson, who balances the needs of his three wives -- Barb, Nicki and Margene -- their seven kids, three houses and his home-improvement stores.

Bill Paxton, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloë Sevigny, Ginnifer Goodwin and Harry Dean Stanton star in the series, which will be executive-produced next season by Playtone’s Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, series creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer and David Knoller.

Big Love, which premiered March 12, currently debuts new episodes Sundays at 10 p.m., immediately following new episodes of The Sopranos.
