Tom Hanks Picks Up “Factory Man” for HBO Mini Series

Tom Hanks’ production company will turn New York Times Best Seller “Factory Man,” the story of Vaughan-Bassett founder John Bassett III, into an HBO mini series.

Nothing says “Live American Made” better than Bassett’s story, as chronicled in author Beth Macy’s “Factory Man.” Academy Award-winning actor and director Tom Hanks seems to agree. Hanks recently announced that his production company, Playtone (co-owned with Gary Goetzman) will produce an HBO mini series inspired by “Factory Man” and Bassett’s story.
