Lionsgate TV is closing in on a deal with Amazon for an hourlong drama series inspired by characters and themes from Bob Dylan’s vast archive of songs.
“Time Out of Mind” will be spearheaded by writer-director Josh Wakely, who managed to secure the wide-ranging rights deal for Dylan’s song catalog.
Details of the Dylan project, named for the songwriter’s acclaimed 1997 album, are still sketchy. Dylan’s incomparable body of work over the past 50-plus years could yield any number of intriguing characters. The plan for the series is that two characters or story threads from Dylan songs that wind up colliding in some way.
Okay, I’m down for this.
