Along the same lines as its Masters of Horror series, Showtime will soon be adopting short science fiction stories for the small screen in an anthology show called Masters Of Sci-Fi.

Michael Tolkin (The Player) will adapt Heinlein’s “Jerry Was a Man.” John Milius (Conan the Barbarian) will rework Lem’s “The Hunt.” Bradbury will adapt his story “Dark They Were, and Golden-Eyed.” Similarly, Ellison will adapt his short story, “‘Repent, Harlequin!’ Said the TicktockMan,” [producer Keith] Addis said.

Harlan Ellison is quoted. Interesting trivia: A request to purchase Ellison’s “‘Repent, Harlequin!’ Said the TicktockMan” was made by…Michael Jackson.
