Bruce Campbell Wanted to Make a Dick Tracy TV Series

In the late 1990s, the great Bruce Campbell found himself in Disney's orbit, appearing in the 1997 big screen version of The Love Bug and seven episodes of Ellen on ABC. During this period, Mr. Campbell landed a development deal with Disney, which unfortunately didn't lead to any major starring roles or projects, but one property under Disney's control caught his eye as he was browsing through a list of properties under their control: the most famous comic strip detective in history, Dick Tracy. This story comes to light in Bruce Campbell's latest book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor, the delightful sequel to his equally delightful If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor (if you haven't read this, what are you waiting for?).

"[Dick Tracy] would make a great weekly TV show," Campbell writes in Hail to the Chin, "very stylized, with fifty years' worth of stories already laid out in comic book form. I also thought I could have pulled of a convincing, if slightly snarky, Dick Tracy."
