On the heels of the actor's Tony win for his stage performance in the role, Deadline reports that Bryan Cranston is teaming with Steven Spielberg and his Amblin Entertainment to develop a television miniseries version of the Lyndon B. Johnson tale All the Way. Written by Robert Schenkkan and directed by Bill Rauch, the Broadway version is officially described as follow:

1964: A pivotal year in American history—a landmark civil rights bill was passed, America began its involvement in Vietnam...and one man sat at the center of it all, determined to lift the country out of the ashes and rebuild it into The Great Society—by any means necessary. Hero. Bully. President. He played whatever part it took to win the day. It's not personal, it's just politics.

Details on All the Way's transition to the small screen are still few, though the outlet notes that it's possible that the miniseries will also incorporate Schenkkan's new play, The Great Society, which continues the life of LBJ post-1964.
