LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- HBO is delaying the third-season premiere of "Deadwood" by two months from March 2006 to June.

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.

"The Sopranos" returns March 6, 2006 at 9 p.m. ET.
