A new scripted biopic based on the life of Elvis Presley will be filmed at Graceland it has been announced.

Weinstein Television has partnered with the Estate of Elvis Presley to develop the 8-10 part series, which will delve into every aspect of the star’s life. The production will have access to all of his personal archives including journals, clothing, automobiles, and his Graceland home.

Priscilla Presley will be involved in the project along with executive producers Jerry Schilling, Harvey Weinstein and David Glasser. The series will be based on the book Elvis by Dave Marsh and will showcase the star’s incredible life and career.

“I’m a big fan of Harvey Weinstein’s independent films,” said Priscilla Presley. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him on this show and tell the story of how Elvis changed the culture of music and initiated a revolution that changed the world.”

TWC Co-Chairman, Harvey Weinstein commented: “To this day, Elvis is one of the few that lives up to the word ‘icon’. He is one of the most celebrated entertainers of all time whose influence surpasses the music he created. People’s fascination with his story goes beyond the stage and this biopic will pay homage to his brilliant legacy and give viewers an in-depth look at how he became ‘The King.”

The new biopic will be the first ever scripted series to be filmed at Graceland.
