TNT has ordered the original series Will based on the early life of William Shakespeare. It will star Laurie Davidson, who is still relatively unknown as the playwright arriving in 16th century London as a young man fresh from the provinces, finding the big city theater scene full of violence and excitement. The tagline seems to include "punk rock" (seems somewhat anacronistic to me, but let's go with it). No Bacon, Donne, or Earl of Oxford on the horizon so far. More here from Deadline.
