QUICK TAKES : Bradbury tales offered to TV

November 13, 2009|Reuters

Sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury is preparing to shop a six-hour miniseries to television networks that will feature a half-dozen of his classic short stories, each directed by a different person, the Hollywood Reporter says. The prolific Bradbury, 89, is the author of such novels as "Fahrenheit 451" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes."

The miniseries directors will get to select their favorite titles for the project, which is part of a new production agreement with the newly formed company White Oak Films. White Oak partner John Dayton has a long association with Bradbury and will executive produce the project with the author.

"My partners and I see this series as an homage to a man who has inspired us all," Dayton said.
