Depression-Era Outlaws Bonnie and Clyde to Ride Again in TV Project

Jan 9, 2012  •  Post A Comment

The Depression-era outlaws Bonnie and Clyde will have their story retold for television in an upcoming miniseries, TVLine.com reports.

The project is being taken on by A&E Networks, with the series to air on either Lifetime or History, the story notes.

Interest in the outlaws has been growing, with a Broadway show recently running and a film version of a book about the pair in the works, the piece adds. The Broadway production has since closed.

The story of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker was famously told in the 1967 movie “Bonnie and Clyde,” starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway and directed by Arthur Penn. The movie was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, winning Oscars for Estelle Parsons as best supporting actress and Burnett Guffey as best cinematographer.
