‘The Great Gatsby’ Big-Budget Miniseries in the Works

A+E Studios and ITV Studios America will be teaming with writer Michael Hirst.

“There are few stories in the pantheon of American literature that transcend time like The Great Gatsby,” president of A+E Studies Barry Jossen said. “Along with our partners at ITV Studios America and Groundswell Productions, A+E Studios is privileged to bring this powerful, complex work to life under the watchful eye of the incomparable Michael Hirst and the blessing of Fitzgerald family member Blake Hazard. As evidenced by his series bible, Michael stays true to Fitzgerald’s novel while building on that legacy with a modern vision that will be more reflective of America both then and now, including an enhanced exploration of the female characters. We are currently searching for a director and are excited to bring this out to the market.”
