HBO Acquires Steven Spielberg's 'All the Way' Starring Bryan Cranston


The Tony Award-winning play has found a network to air its television adaptation of Lyndon B. Johnson's administration.

HBO has acquired the rights to Tony Award-winning play "All the Way" which Steven Spielberg is developing with "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston. Returning to television, Cranston will reprise his Tony-winning Broadway role as President Lyndon B. Johnson in the small screen version.

Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment banner revealed last month that the company was in the process of scoring rights to the play for a miniseries. The project is coming into shape this time as a TV movie with Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan on board to adapt the play for HBO Films. Schenkkan previously earned two Emmy nominations for HBO's miniseries "The Pacific".

Taking place shortly after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, "All the Way" depicts the first year of Johnson's administration, during which he tried to pass Civil Rights legislation and navigate the escalation of Vietnam War.

Spielberg, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey will exec produce alongside Schenkkan and Cranston while James Degus will co-exec produce. No word yet on premiere date.
