NBC is reportedly working to turn the story of The Beatles into a new television series.
According to an exclusive report by Deadline, the eight-episode show is expected to cover the careers of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr -- from the formation of their iconic band in 1960, all the way to its breakup in 1970.
It's unclear at the moment exactly what form the show will take, though Deadline offers a clue by noting that it will be written and executive produced by Michael Hirst. IGN notes that Hirst has written every episode of historical drama series “The Tudors” and “Vikings."
Variety, a sister site of Deadline, writes that the project "is in line with NBC’s current focus on event series, such as its recent 'Rosemary’s Baby' miniseries and last winter’s 'The Sound of Music: Live!'"
No one from NBC was immediately available to comment.
Here's a video of the Fab Four performing on "The Ed Sullivan Show" back in 1964.
