Johnny Depp is set to produce a TV series based on the Bard's most famous plays, according to a report.

Deadline.com said that the piece remains scant on details but reveals that the series will be based on some of the plotlines and characters from Shakespeare's most famous works. Scriptwriter Randall Fontana will be tasked with adapting them for a modern audience.
