Steven Spielberg to give Tony-winning "All The Way" series treatment

Steven Spielberg to give Tony-winning

PanARMENIAN.Net - Steven Spielberg and Bryan Cranston are going to team up for a new TV show. Hot on heels of the actor's Tony Award win for his performance in "All The Way", Spielberg wants to develop a miniseries based on the Robert Schenkkan-penned play, which also won a Tony for Outstanding Play, AceShowbiz said.

The prolific filmmaker is currently in the process of scoring rights to the play through his Amblin Entertainment banner. The Academy Award-winning director reportedly wants Emmy-winning actor Cranston to reprise his role as President Lyndon B. Johnson in the new project.

"All The Way", titled after Johnson's 1964 campaign slogan "All the Way with LBJ", takes place shortly after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It depicts the first year of Lyndon B. Johnson's administration, during which he tried to pass Civil Rights legislation.

It's unclear if the miniseries will also incorporate "The Great Society" written by Schenkkan which continues the life of LBJ post-1964.

Cranston returned to the Broadway in "All The Way" shortly after wrapping up AMC's hit series "Breaking Bad". He recently also starred in the new big-screen take on Toho's iconic monster, "Godzilla".
