Ray Bradbury shopping six-hour miniseries

Will feature six short stories helmed by different directors

Sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury is set to shop a six-hour miniseries to networks as part of a new production agreement with newly formed company White Oak Films.

The mini will feature six of Bradbury's classic short stories directed by six different directors. The helmers will get to select their favorite titles.

Bradbury, 89, is the author of "Fahrenheit 451" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes."

White Oak partner John Dayton has a long association with Bradbury and will executive produce the project with the author.

"My partners and I see this series as an homage to a man who has inspired us all," Dayton said.
