“Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk will star in a project based on the memoir of the late New York Times columnist David Carr, The Times reports.
The six-part AMC miniseries is based on Carr’s “The Night of the Gun,” published in 2008.
Shawn Ryan, creator of “The Shield,” will write and executive produce.
In his memoir, Carr “reported and wrote about his years of drug addiction and alcoholism, and his unlikely rise as a leading voice in the media world. Mr. Carr died last year after collapsing in the Times newsroom,” the paper reports.
