TV Series Based on Bob Dylan Songs in Early Development at Amazon, Lionsgate TV
I want to thank regular reader Frank D'agostino for bringing this to my attention. Certainly Bob Dylan songs have had a great impact on me and millions of his fans of years. A detailed article in Variety reports that the series will be name "Time Out of Mind" and each show will be a story inspired by characters and themes in Dylan songs. Certainly the sky will be the limit as there are hundreds of Dylan songs with themes from the ridiculous to the sublime. "His songs are vague and open to interpretation."
As of now it is in the early stages of development, so we may have to wait a few years before we see the first show. I must assume that there will be contracts involved in getting the rights to use the songs.
