Since The Wire is the best thing ever to hit television (no hyperbole), any new Simon/Burns project is cause for huzzahs. However, I can't imagine why he chose now to adapt Philip Roth's alternative history novel about a fascist, white supremacist president. (On Marc Maron's podcast, John Turturro said that Simon's been planning this since Dubya's tenure, but sat on it through the Obama presidency, feeling the timing wasn't right.) Here's HBO's press release: https://www.hbo.com/hbo-news/the-plot-against-america-david-simon
Deadline: FWIW, I did a search and found nothing. Feel free to ahem me if need be. Link to the thread on the Great American Novel, where Roth is mentioned. Here's Adam Chandler begging people to stop adapting Roth. Of the previous Roth adaptations, we seem to only have a thread on The Human Stain.
