Bryan Cranston’s coming back to the small screen


A round of applause indeed Mr. President, on your return to TV.

A round of applause indeed Mr. President, on your return to TV.

Bryan Cranston is coming back to television! No, not for Breaking Bad and not for Better Call Saul.

It was announced today that HBO has acquired the rights to film the Tony Award-winning play All the Way, and have signed Bryan Cranston to reprise his role as President Lyndon Johnson.

This is great news for everyone who enjoys watching a top notch actor perform the hell out of a role. I wrote back in April how much I loved this play and the electric performances. Now that the play’s limited Broadway run is over, thanks to HBO, everyone will get to see it.

I wish HBO luck in recording and producing it in a way that brings out the same emotional impact that the live play had. HBO did a great job with The Normal Heart, so fingers crossed.

And my how the world has changed. Since President Johnson’s era, when CBS, NBC, and ABC were the be all and end all of commercial TV networks, today they are mere whispers of their former selves. HBO, Showtime, AMC, FX an even Netflix which isn’t even a channel, got more Emmy nominations than the (former) Big Three networks.

Brass at CBS, NBC, and ABC, should learn from this. Stop with the reality shows, give viewers come quality things to watch, and we will come.
