The CSI Files has a very interesting rumor/tidbit that was thrown out there by Tarantino about his work on the CSI finale episode.
Besides his love for CSI, Tarantino said he had one other reason for agreeing to helm “Grave Danger” — to prepare himself for a full-scale move into television. “I’m interested in doing a show of my own,” he said. “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.”
So what would this TV series potentially be? Certainly not the long rumored Vega Brothers, I can’t see that working in 30-60 minute chunks. Maybe a Kill Bill like show, something along the lines of the old Kung Fu series with David Carradine. There sure isn’t anything like it on TV now.
It’d be interesting to see what he had in mind. Most of QT’s stuff is told from the perspective of the villian/criminal – would that approach work on TV where the good guys have to win once a week?
