Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Series


?It’s happened! The BBC officially announced an hour-long special based on Douglas Adam’s Dirk Gently mysteries. The show begins production next month and will air on BBC 4. The good news — this special will more or less be a pilot, and if it does well enough, it should be picked up for a series. The possibly bad news — it’s being written by Howard Overman, who also did Misfits, which I believe some of you just loathe. So there are a lot of unknowns here — but it’s always nice to see Adams’ work get a little love. Cross your fingers, nerds. (Via Geekosystem)
