Precious director Lee Daniels has signed on to write and direct a TV series based on the 1967 film. ’Fess up: How many of us snuck the book under the covers to read? Will the story translate to current times, or is it too dated?

If they ride the retro wave and stick with the original time frame, I'd be all over this, but if "updated" to a modern setting, not so much. Not enough to set it apart from the pack for me, but maybe with more information, I could be swayed. But I want the pretty 60s clothes, dangitall.

I'm really surprised at myself that I never tried reading the book. lol I've seen clips of the movie but never watched all of it. Hmm, I might have to read the book now. :)
