Macy's Book to Become Hanks Mini-Series

Beth Macy at the 2014 Roanoke Regional Writers Conference.
Looks like Roanoker Beth Macy's book Factory Man will become a Tom Hanks-produced television mini-series. Here's the report from Deadline Hollywood.

The report says, "CAA-repped Playtone is the go-to miniseries producer for HBO. The company was behind Band Of Brothers, The Pacific and John Adams, all Emmy winners for best miniseries. It also is producing HBO’s upcoming Olive Kitteridge miniseries; the Lewis And Clark mini, which is moving towards production with the recent casting of Casey Affleck; as well as the long-gestating followup to Band Of Brothers and The Pacific. The deal for Factory Man was negotiated by Davoli Law Firm and Foundry Literary + Media."
