I was talking about the HBO series, not the Kirk Douglas movie. I liked the movie and yes I'm familiar with the story of Howard Fast. Let's just say that Fast was apparently not a student of Roman History.

I don't know if THIS iteration is going to be successful or not. But the popularity of short video marketing (YouTube, Instagram, Tik Tok) tells me the market for intellectual property is changing. I think modern, younger users, are interested in short, SHORT media experiences. This is a valid experiment in my eyes. Writers need to consider if their stories can be tailored to fit into a short-read format.

I guess Twitter and Vine have been attempts to find the edge of that envelope.
