HBO says it's teaming up again with David Chase, mastermind of "The Sopranos," for a miniseries dramatizing Hollywood history.

The miniseries, titled "A Ribbon of Dreams," will start in 1913. It will follow two characters as they become movie pioneers, then studio moguls. Real-life figures like John Wayne, Bette Davis and Billy Wilder will be part of the tale.

Chase will write and executive produce the project, his first for TV since "The Sopranos" ended its HBO run two years ago.

HBO didn't announce the stars or air date for "A Ribbon of Dreams." The announcement was made Monday.

HBO is owned by Time Warner Inc.
