Beatles TV Series Being Developed By NBC

With ‘Mad Men’ set to end its acclaimed run on AMC next year, there will undoubtedly be a void in ’60s-set programming that needs to be filled. Enter NBC, who are reportedly in talks to create a series about the history of the Beatles.

Deadline says that the network is working with Michael Hirst, Ben Silverman and Teri Weinberg, the same production team that created ‘The Tudors,’ which ran on Showtime from 2007-10. Bob Greenblatt, who was President of Entertainment for Showtime during the period that the story of King Henry VIII aired, is currently the chairman of NBC.

The series is still in the early stages of development, but it is expected to have an eight-episode run, so the question of how much they’ll be able to tell is up for grabs. Still, the history of the Beatles is an oft-told tale — not least of which by the group itself in their remarkable 1995 ‘Anthology’ documentary — so fictionalizing it can lead to all sorts of questions about accuracy. And then there’s the question of securing any necessary rights from Apple, who are justifiably very protective of the band’s legacy.
