Author inks deal with White Oak for 'Bradbury Chronicles'

Ray Bradbury has signed on with White Oak Films to develop a miniseries based on six of his short stories.

White Oak’s John Dayton will exec produce “The Bradbury Chronicles” — now targeted as a six-hour event — along with Bradbury. White Oak’s Merrill Capps, Todd Klick, Cory Travalena and Dale Olson will produce.

No network is yet attached. Bradbury, the author of famed books such as “Fahrenheit 451” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” will help choose and adapt the six stories.

“My partners and I see this series as an homage to a man who has inspired us all,” Dayton said.
