Amazon Developing Scripted Series About The Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead seemingly wrapped up their 50 years of existence with a series of farewell shows earlier this year, but it looks like their legacy could live on in the form of a limited TV mini-series. Deadline reports that Amazon is developing a bio-series about the band. It’s based on the accounts of longtime roadie Steve Parish, who wrote Home Before Daylight: My Life On The Road With The Grateful Dead. The band’s singer, guitarist, and co-founder Bob Weir will serve as an executive producer alongside Parish, and will also be the music supervisor for the as-of-yet untitled series.

Amazon is announcing the project just as two other premium outlets get ready to launch their music-related shows: HBO’s Vinyl premieres in February, and Showtime’s Cameron Crowe-created Roadies will debut sometime next year.

The Grateful Dead project is just in development, so there’s a chance it will never come to fruition.
