AUTHOR RUSSELL BANKS HAS A MINI-SERIES IN THE WORKS
Author Russell Banks, who is no stranger to seeing his novels get the Hollywood treatment (The Sweet Hereafter, Affliction), is anticipating another adaptation of one of his books. As the Keene, New York resident reflects on the 20th anniversary of his book Cloudsplitter, a fictionalized text about the abolitionist John Brown and his family, he’s serving as executive producer for a mini-series based on his work.
“Spotlight” producer Paul Larson discusses the compelling novel with the author, and its translation to the TV screen.
“Spotlight” is made possible, in part, by the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park. http://www.pearsallfoundation.org. Spotlight is also supported by Hill & Hollow Music. hillandhollowmusic.org
