This could be monumental. As we all know - particularly from his directorial debut last year - Charlie Kaufman loves him a grand canvas, and I'm sure the limitations of cinema has restrained him from time to time. With a television series, especially one on HBO or the like, he could just go ape shit. It's not like this seems to even be anywhere close any sort of development stage (he essentially tells the interviewer that he wants to). But its a ridiculously exciting idea nonetheless... This could be the 2010s answer to the 1990s "Twin Peaks" and the 2000s "The Wire" (which are, granted, intensely different series, but both contain a pretty much unparalleled artistry and complexity).
