In February, it was announced that Cinemax ordered “Quarry,” an eight-episode series of based on the novels of Max Allan Collins, staring Logan Marshall-Green. Collins has been pleased with the process; he and his lovely wife even got to visit the set in New Orleans, which, of course, Collins managed to capture in delightful prose (and photos!) in a blog post — and you can catch a sneak peek here!
Meanwhile, production continues here at Skyboat on the Quarry audiobooks.
