The Man Who Fell To Earth sci-fi classic is becoming a TV series

The ‘70s movie made famous by David Bowie will come to CBS All Access. 

Read more in my CNET article here.

FUN FACT!

There was an effort to do this as a series back in the 80s. Lewis Smith, who was known for his work in Buckaroo Banzai, was in the Bowie role.

I know this because I played “rebellious teenager in fringe jacket” whose mother was played by Beverly D’Angelo.

We filmed the pilot, and the series wasn’t picked up. They ran it as a Sunday Night movie.

EDIT: HOLY SHIT I FOUND A PROMO FOR IT ON YOUTUBE
