Last summer Lionel Richie confirmed his production company RichLion were producing a Sammy Davis Jr. biopic and now it seems as if there is a miniseries for the Hollywood legend in the works as well, helmed by Lee Daniels and Tom Hanks.
Sammy will reportedly be based on the 2003 book In Black and White: The Life of Sammy Davis, Jr.
