David Milch, creator of Deadwood (did you watch that short-lived surfing show he made after Deadwood? Why did it feature the worst acting in the history of history?), has now announced a deal that will enable him to adapt Faulker stories for premium cable.

Which ones? We don't know yet:

...he and the estate’s executor, Lee Caplin, will work together to choose from 19 novels and 125 short stories by Faulkner that could be adapted for film or television.

Faulker medley? Faulkner season after season? Faulkner film festival? Can we at least have one where we just hear Al Swearengen read Faulkner for an hour?

UPDATE: I will be making a movie called Meet the Faulkers, yes.
