Daylight Shines on Grateful Dead

Michael Grais will write a feature film adaptation og “Home Before Daylight,” an autobiography by a longtime Grateful Dead roadie reports Variety.

The story traces the music- and drug-filled exploits of the Bay Area band, which mingled with the likes of Ken Kesey and Jefferson Airplane during its heyday, and developed a devoted following on the concert circuit well into the 1980s.

Grais (“Poltergeist”) is producing with author Steve Parish, who has already garnered the support of Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir and Jefferson Airplane’s management.
