"Green Acres" Film Adaptation Planned

Richard L. Bare and Phillip B. Goldfine have acquired the remake rights to the classic 1960s TV series "Green Acres" and plan to develop the property into both a feature film and a Broadway play.

Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor starred in the original as a married New York couple who try their hand at farming in the Midwestern community of Hooterville. It also sported a catchy theme tune.

The project is currently seeking a writer and director for the feature adaptation. Bare, who directed 166 of the show's 170 episodes, has been trying to revive the hit series for almost a decade.

All six seasons of "Green Acres" are currently available on Hulu.
