MBJ: New Elvis TV series will be first to film in Graceland
A new series about Elvis Presley will be reportedly the first to film inside Graceland.
According to Deadline, the Weinstein Co. has secured a partnership with Presley’s estate to create a television biopic series on Elvis. The series will draw from author Dave Marsh’s biography “Elvis” and will have full access to Elvis’ cars, clothes, jewelry and, of course, Graceland.
No network, director or actors have yet been attached to the project.
“We are thrilled to announce this biopic and our partnership with the Presley Estate. It’s an incredible opportunity to be the first-ever scripted TV series to shoot at Graceland and have access to Elvis’ personal archives. Elvis redefined an entire generation’s relationship to music and pop culture. This show will be an authentic and riveting look at how that came about from start to finish,” David Glasser, COO of the Weinstein Company, told Deadline.
