Max Landis (Chronicle) wird eine neue Serienversion von Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency und The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul produzieren und den Piloten schreiben. Die BBC hatte schonmal vor zwei Jahren eine Serie am Start, die war aber auch eher so okayish, ob das hier besser wird, bleibt abzuwarten. Ich bin skeptisch.

"Alongside the obvious yada yada, I'm a lifelong fan, Long Dark Teatime of The Soul (the second Dirk Gently novel) is one of the best books ever,” Landis said. “Douglas Adams is a visionary who forever changed the way science fiction is written and talked about and even thought about and even the way real actual science is thought about and without whom our culture would be noticeably different for the worse. I'd also just like to say holy crap, it's Dirk Gently."

He continued: "This is any writer's ultimate project, and in the current TV space, it fits ridiculously well. Imagine a playground where you could come with any mystery, no matter how improbable, convoluted or totally insane and then, simply by finding the right connections, you could tie it all down to one man, one private eye. If you're familiar with the property, you know: there's no freaking rules. Ancient gods? Sure. Larceny and petty crimes? Of course. Extra-dimensional aliens? I mean, probably; as long as you can make it funny, Dirk's on the case. This is a dream project of mine, no joke, and I absolutely positively couldn't be happier."
