After the success they enjoyed with reviving “Arrested Development” last May, Netflix will once again become the necromancers of television. This time, they will be giving a second life to the popular Canadian series “Trailer Park Boys” with two new seasons and two feature films confirmed. “Trailer Park Boys,” which has been off the air since 2007, follows the residents of Nova Scotia’s Sunnyvale Trailer Park lead by Ricky (Robb Wells), Julian (John Paul Tremblay), and Bubbles (Mike Smith). Netflix will also premiere three new standalone specials from the show: “Community Service Special,” “Swearnet Special,” and “Trailer Park Boys Xmas.” So if you’re a fan of the show and have been craving new content, you should be happy with what Netflix has to offer in the near future. The show’s upcoming eighth season will consist of ten new episodes which are set to air this fall. [Indiewire]

One network giveth, another takes away. HBO has recently decided that they will not move forward with David Milch’s “The Money.” The pilot was written by Milch, directed by Justin Chadwick, and starred Brendan Gleeson who portrayed an American mogul “who wields power and influence to expand his media empire and control his family.” Also appearing in the pilot were Nathan Lane, Ray Liotta, and Andrea Riseborough. After the unfortunate, early demise of Milch’s previous show “Luck,” it seems he and HBO just can’t find the right project together. Although, really, they should just do the sensible thing and bring back “Deadwood” — or you can just watch the network's tenth anniversary marathon of all 36 episodes starting March 15th at 10 AM.

After their film “Cold in July” proved to be a hit at Sundance this year, writer/actor Nick Damici and director Jim Mickle will team up once again, this time to make a TV series for the Sundance Channel. That series will be “Hap and Leonard,” which is based on the private investigator books by author Joe Lansdale, who also happened to be the author of “Cold in July.” “Hap and Leonard” follows two best friends who find themselves attempting to solve brutal crimes in the fictional town of LaBorde, Texas. Mickle and Damici will have plenty of material to adapt from as Lansdale has written almost a dozen novels based on the characters. The deal with Sundance Channel has not been made official just yet, but hopefully, we’ll hear more info soon. [The Wrap]
