Dirk Gentley Series is coming

Dirk-GentlyNeues von der BBC-Serienverfilmung von Douglas Adams‘ Büchern Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency und The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. Die Serie hatten sie vor zwei Jahren schon angekündigt, jetzt machen sie ernst:

BBC America has given an eight-episode order to an adaptation […] written by Max Landis. […] The TV series will see Gently heading to the U.S. — a storyline envisioned by Adams in drafts for a novel he was working at the time of his unexpected death.

David calls the deal with BBC America symbiotic as Adams served as the showrunner of the BBC’s “Doctor Who” for a period in the 1980s, and now BBC America is eyeing “Dirk Gently” as a companion piece to the enduring fantasy franchise.
