HBO fulfills its ‘sexLIFE’

Cabler orders up new series

HBO has ordered the series “sexLIFE,” a drama about couples with intimacy issues from Gavin Polone’s Pariah Entertainment.

Execs ordered the pilot, about three problematic relationships, from scribe Cynthia Mort (“Will & Grace,” “Roseanne”) last summer (Daily Variety, Aug. 16). Patricia Rozema (“Mansfield Park”) directed the pilot, which was shot in Canada.

Show will likely be relocated and shot in Los Angeles. Pay net has not yet decided on a number of episodes or a premiere date.

“SexLIFE” marks the first one-hour commitment HBO has made to a project since greenlighting the polygamy drama “Big Love” and, prior to that, the period epic “Rome.” Both were picked up for second seasons, with “Rome” currently in production.

Polone also exec produces the Larry David comedy “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which has not yet committed to episodes beyond the fifth season.

Elsewhere on the drama front, new seasons of “Deadwood” and “The Wire” bow in June and September, respectively. “The Sopranos” finishes its run early next year.
