Tarantino Interested in Doing a TV Show

May 11, 2005



CSIFiles.com reports that Quentin Tarantino (“Kill Bill” films) agreed to direct the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation season finale in part so he could test the waters for doing a TV show of his own:



Interviewed in next week’s edition of TV Guide, Tarantino said, “I’m interested in doing a show of my own. This was testing the water. There are some ideas that I’ve had for movies that are too long. Most people aren’t down with four hour movies. But TV has caught up with my aspirations. You could truly do these stories as a TV show.”



Tarantino also talked about the story for the two-hour CSI finale, in which CSI Nick Stokes will be kidnapped and buried alive. "What happens to this CSI team member is going to be horrific. Everyone will put themselves in that character’s place and say, ‘How would I handle this?’ And most will say, ‘I couldn’t.’ The bad guy even buries a gun with this character."



More from Tarantino, including his description of the episode’s main bad guy, and word on the bestiality joke that CBS censors made him take out of the episode, can be found at the link above.

if he doesn Inglorious Bastards as TV show, it might as well be called “Band Of Brothers II”

I hope to God he doesn’t make Inglorious Bastards into a TV show. He most likely won’t, these stories could be regarding anything.

according to imdb.com



" Acclaimed movie maker Quentin Tarantino is transferring his directing talents to TV after discovering the medium had “caught up with his aspirations”. The Pulp Fiction director has acquired a taste TV after he recently wrote and directed the season finale of drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Tarantino - who also has an episode of hospital drama ER on his TV resume - is keen to transform some of his longer film ideas into a television drama series. He says, “I’m interested in doing a show of my own. There are some ideas I’ve had for movies that are too long. Most people aren’t down with four-hour movies. But TV has caught up with my aspirations. You could truly do these stories as a TV show.”"





maybe that means Inglorious Bastards will be a tv series, hehe

Guess QT has to learn how to tone down the cuss words and violence QUITE A BIT if he’s ever gonna do a T.V. show instead of movies. What’s this anyway, like the 47th rumor on QT’s next project? Just stop all this rumor bullshit and do something. Anything. Please. Quentin.
