Back in 2011, it was reported that Patti Smith was working on a film adaptation of her memoir Just Kids, but nothing came of it. Until now...

It's been revealed that Showtime has ordered a limited series adaptation of the book, whose script is reportedly being co-written by Smith herself.

"A limited series on Showtime will allow us to explore the characters more deeply, enabling us to develop stories beyond the book and allow a measure of unorthodox presentation," Patti Smith explains in a statement. "The medium of a television limited series offers narrative freedom and a chance to expand upon the themes of the book."

No further details are known (not even an episode count), but keep your eyes peeled for more information on the series.
