A TV miniseries based on the late journalist David Carr's best-selling memoir is in development.

AMC and Sony Pictures Television said Monday that "Better Call Saul" star Bob Odenkirk is set to play Carr.

Carr, who was a media columnist for The New York Times, died last year. His 2008 memoir, "The Night of the Gun," details his path from drug addiction to respected journalist.

The six-part miniseries will be written by Shawn Ryan, whose credits include "The Shield."

The AMC debut date for the project was not announced.
