HBO's 'Sex and the city' draws to a close in 2004

MUMBAI: HBO's critically acclaimed comedy series Sex and The City with Sarah Jessica Parker will bow out next year. Its sixth season will be its last.

A Reuters report indicates that 20 half-hour episodes of the Emmy-winning comedy will be produced for the concluding season, with shooting set to start on 31 March in Gotham. 12 episodes will air from June, with the remaining eight unspooling in a sort of mini-season that will begin in January 2004.

The network's gangster saga The Sopranos is also expected to wind up next year following the conclusion of its fifth season. In India the show airs on Zee English. HBO has been reluctant to bring Sex and The City for Indian viewers so far as the network is unsure of how well it will gel with the desi viewer. However HBO is said to be keen on another season for The Soprano's and talks are on with the series' creator David Chase.

For the US, HBO has set its documentary schedule for the first half of this year. Among the upcoming documentary specials are Oliver Stone's Commandante, a portrait of Fidel Castro; The Kid Stays in the Picture, based on Robert Evans' autobiography; RFK daughter Rory Kennedy's five-part Pandemic: Facing AIDS; and Unchained Memories: Readings From the Slave Narratives, based on interviews with former slaves. In addition production of Six Feet Under's third season is under way, and rookie drama The Wire has been renewed for a second season.

Whether any of the shows will air in India this year remains to be seen.
