Filmmaker Steven Spielberg is reportedly developing a miniseries based on Bryan Cranston's award-winning Broadway play All the Way.

The Lincoln director is preparing to buy the rights to the stage show and wants the Breaking Bad star to reprise his role as former U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson in the series, which will focus on the first year of Johnson's administration, according to Deadline.com.

The news emerges a day after Cranston won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play on Sunday (08Jun14) for his portrayal of the late politician.

The stage show also took home the Best Play accolade at the New York prizegiving.
