Ohio adoptee memorist and author (and one of the best writers’ in the country today) Dan Chaon has a new gig.
Dan sent a note via FB and Twitter on Thursday that he’ll be working on a new dramatic project for Starz titled Most Wanted. The production team includes writer Chris Collins, co-producer of Sons of Anarchy and director Ken Fink (CSI, Oz, Homicide. Dan will serve as co-executive producer of the new series..
The show takes place in the in the Plains States in the 1970s and traces the career of fictional prolific bank robber Nate Daniels “as he finds himself on a collision course with his family and crew as he becomes one of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted.” My kinda show!
I’ve written about Dan here, here, and here. Dan lives in Cleveland and teaches at my old hangout, Oberlin College where he’s the Pauline M. Delaney Professor of Creative Writing and Literature
Twitter fried my account and I was forced to start a new one. Besides tweeting The Daily Bastardette I tweet (and retweet) about adoption issues, civil rights, freedom of the press, the corporate state, Depeche Mode, literature and books, plus some local stuff. I retweet generously. Join me there! Daily Bastardette @DBastardette.
