The Weinstein Company plans to turn Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood into a TV event series. Originally released as a four-part serial in The New Yorker in 1965, it was then put together into a single book that would go on to be considered one of the seminal works of the 20th century. Telling the story of the 1959 murder, In Cold Blood seems to fit perfectly in today’s true-crime boom.
In Cold Blood has been adapted a couple times since its release, including a 1996 miniseries starring Anthony Edwards. Most recently, two acclaimed films, 2005’s Capote and 2006’s Infamous, have come out telling the story of Capote as he worked on the piece.
