BY MATT FOWLERThe creator of Showtime's The Tudors and History's Vikings, Michael Hirst, is currently prepping an eight-episode event series about The Beatles for NBC.
As Deadline reports, Hirst, who as a solo writer and creator wrote every episode of The Tudors and every episode of Vikings (so far), will be writing the series, which will tackle the story of the famed Liverpool quartet - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Full details are not known at this time, though with eight episodes one might assume that the entire run of The Beatles' career as a rock and roll phenomenon could be covered. Especially given Hirst's penchant for historical storytelling.
