After Vinyl and Roadies proved that rock and roll does so well on TV, the Weinstein Company has decided to go all-in on a massive event series that will chronicle the life of Elvis Presley. The ten-part biographical series, made in conjunction with the Presley estate (ensuring that the company will get access to Presley's music and the ability to shoot at Graceland) will do a "thorough exploration into a remarkable life." TWC also produced other award-winning — [cough] and boooring [cough] — biopics like The Imitation Game and The King's Speech, so expect many accolades for whichever actor dares to have his singing and gyration abilities compared to those of the King.
