NBC to create miniseries based on the Beatles

By Elizabeth Sudlow,

The Beatles remain one of the most beloved music groups of all time despite how long ago it may have been since the band made a record. Since their popularity continues to this day, NBC is looking to bring them to the small screen.

Deadline has broken the news that the world can receive even more Beatles than even before. NBC is in the early stages of creating an event series, made up of eight episodes, which will tell the story of this incredibly popular foursome.

This series is part of an attempt for the network to develop more event programming, along with live productions. The Beatles event series would follow other features including the live performance of The Sound of Music, the failed Rosemary’s Baby miniseries and a 12-episode follow up to Bible, A.D..

Variety reports that this project will be written by Michael Hirst, creator and executive producer of The Tudors, and executive produced by Ben Silverman and Teri Weinberg.

There have been small efforts to document the groups journey including Nowhere Boy back in 2009 which told the story of John Lennon’s early years and then there had been an attempt about Brian Epstein, the Beatles manager called The Fifth Beatle.

Do you think the series will go through?
