Acclaimed movie maker Quentin Tarantino is transferring his directing talents to TV after discovering the medium had "caught up with his aspirations".

The Pulp Fiction director has acquired a taste TV after he recently wrote and directed the season finale of US drama CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.

Tarantino - who also has an episode of hospital drama ER on his TV resume - is keen to transform some of his longer film ideas into a television drama series.

He says, "I'm interested in doing a show of my own.

"There are some ideas I've had for movies that are too long.

"Most people aren't down with four-hour movies.

"But TV has caught up with my aspirations.

"You could truly do these stories as a TV show."
