The classic 1960s sitcom "Green Acres" is being adapted into a stage musical version, according to the Variety.

Richard L. Bare, who directed almost every one of the TV show's 170 episodes, is working on the project with the production company Hemisphere Two and Pam Laudenslager. The 98-year-old director has completed the initial script of the musical's book, and a second draft is being worked on by Richard Chapman and E. Jack Kaplan.

The TV series "Green Acres," which ran for six seasons on CBS from 1965 to 1971, starred Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor. They acted as a wealthy New York couple that moves to a small farm and cope with the new life there.

Bare's script continues the storyline of the famous TV series as if it were a new episode in the TV series.

Composer, lyricist, director, casting, or specific timeline has not been announced.
