TV Line reports that HBO has acquired the rights for the Broadway show All the Way, which won the 2014 Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Actor in a play. The TV version is set to feature Bryan Cranston reprising his role as President Lyndon Johnson, and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment is producing the project.
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan is adapting the show from his own script for the made-for-TV film.
The story takes place in 1964 during Johnson's first year in office following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
