How to [Revive] A [Documentary] as an ABC mini series

by Jeremy Hooper

Mv5Bmtg2Nteynte3Nf5Bml5Banbnxkftztcwnjy3Nzm0Oa@@. V1 Sy317 Cr0,0,214,317 Hollywood Reporter brings the amazing news that ABC has optioned the sensational documentary How To Survive A Plague for a potential mini series:

Ideally, the scripted adaptation, which is in its early days of development, will go broader and deeper. “We know we’d like it to be an extended story that’s not just about AIDS and what AIDS wrought but about this tremendous civil rights movement that grew from the ashes of AIDS and the dawn of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movement,” [filmmaker David France] tells The Hollywood Reporter.

I can't think of source material more relevant, necessary, or deserving of primetime network exposure!

Put me on record as saying I want to play Ann Northrop.
