Actress Salma Hayek and her partner Jose Tamez are joining forces with ABC to produce an eight-hour miniseries based on the books which spawned the Award winning musical, Wicked.
The series, which will not be a musical will be based on the Gregory Maguire best seller Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. Although the art of a successful miniseries has moved onto HBO and Showtime, Salma and ABC are going to give it a shot.
Erik Jendersen, a producer on HBO’s miniseries Band of Brothers, is writing the script. It hasn’t been confirmed whether Salma will appear in the miniseries or not.
