"Chronicle" scribe Max Landis is teaming with IDW for a TV series adaptation of Douglas Adams' 1991 "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" graphic novel and its sequel "The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul".

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" author Adams created the story of the titular holistic detective who investigates cases involving the supernatural. Dave Alpert will produce the new series.

The property was already adapted for TV by the BBC with an hour-long pilot in 2010 followed by three episodes in 2012. That version starred Stephen Mangan as Gently, Darren Boyd as Macduff and Helen Baxendale as Susan.
