New Dirk Gently TV series

(1/2) > >>

Kilman:
Dirk Gently to get another TV treatment.  No specifics on when and where we will be able to watch this, but I do get the impression that Americans won't be left out on this one.

Let's just hope they do it well.

Kilman:
It looks like this is going to happen.  BBC America plans to broadcast 8 1-hour episodes starting this fall (2016). 
Cast includes - Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, Hannah Marks
From what I can tell, don't expect this to follow the books very closely.  Hopefully they can at least capture the spirit of Dirk Gently.

Kilman:
Update - Dirk Gently "debuts October 22 on BBC America"

Hurray!  ...so long as they don't ruin it.

Kilman:
We are now two episodes into the season.  If you missed those, you can watch them on the BBC America website (but I think you have to have a cable/satellite provider that carries the channel).

I also reviewed the beginning in my Scide Splitters column at Amazing Stories:

Donna:
I'm watching late show with stephen colbert and he has Elijah Wood as his guest.  They just showed a clip of the show - I'm going to have to start watching it now!  :)
