When it came to bringing "The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey" from the pages of Walter Mosley’s novel to screens on Apple TV+, the writer and star Samuel L. Jackson agree that the long haul – with over a decade of development – due to their commitment to telling the epic story through the long form of television – was worth the wait.

 

“Getting something finally done, bringing it to fruition, is an amazing feat, especially something that was this personal for me,” Jackson said during Deadline’s Contenders Television panel spotlighting the miniseries, noting that both he and Mosley had experienced their own elderly parents’ struggles with mental decline, similar to the titular character. “It’s rewarding and comforting.”

 

“People wanted to make it into a movie, but movies are short stories, and this is a novel,” said Mosley. “And because it’s a real story that we wanted to tell in the fullness of its time, it was so much better to do this, and hence what we wanted to do.” Below is a snippet from the Deadline "Contenders" series.
