Patti Smith's "Just Kids" to become a limited cable series

Unread post by Liz » Wed Aug 12, 2015 1:14 am

I just found out tonight that Just Kids will be made into a limited series on Showtime.

“A limited series on Showtime will allow us to explore the characters more deeply, enabling us to develop stories beyond the book and allow a measure of unorthodox presentation," says Smith. "The medium of a television limited series offers narrative freedom and a chance to expand upon the themes of the book."

For more information click on this article from Mashable.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

:girlwave2: Hi Liz! I heard this on the radio last night :bounce: and had to come over to see if it was posted. Because Patti is involved in both the writing and producing I have very high hopes for the content and quality of the mini-series. Now, I just need to figure out how I'm going to watch it without a Showtime subscription. :perplexed:

Yes, this is fantastic. I will also have the subscription problem. Let's hope it occurs to someone that many of us are watching things online these days, even paying modest sums to do so.

Here's hoping that the next couple of months go well for you. As Liz said, we definitely miss you. :rose:
