HBO orderered 12 episodes of “John From Cincinnati,” a surf-noir series from David Milch, creator of “Deadwood.”

The network on Monday said it plans a summer, 2007, debut for the surf drama. The cast includes Rebecca De Mornay, Bruce Greenwood, Luis Guzman and Ed O’Neill.

Earlier this year, HBO cancelled Mr. Milch’s “Deadwood” western, opting to greenlight a pair of two-hour movies instead.

“David Milch is one of the most original storytellers working in any format today,” said Carolyn Strauss, president, HBO Entertainment. “We are honored to have him as part of the HBO family. The sky is the limit for his new series.”
