The premium cable channel moved back the scheduled opener to give the Tom Hanks' produced "Big Love" the post-"The Sopranos" time slot, Media Week reported.
"Big Love" is described as a polygamy drama starring Bill Paxton and Chloe Sevigny.
"Deadwood" will be plugged into the "Sopranos" time slot some time in June followed by season three of "Entourage" and "Lucky Louie," a new comedy starring Louie C.K.
