Jonathan Franzen Confirms Work on ‘The Corrections’ HBO Series

At the New Yorker Festival, Jonathan Franzen confirmed that he is working on an adaptation of The Corrections for HBO. The video embedded above features a small preview of the 86-minute talk with New Yorker editor David Remnick.

According to The Gothamist, the HBO series will have four seasons to be aired over the course of four years.
