Once you're done binge-watching "Breaking Bad" on Netflix, follow the lead of one of the show's writers and switch to a heartwarming tale about a young girl's plucky adventures in 1890s Canada.
Online-video service Netflix said Monday it will stream "Anne," an eight-hour miniseries based on the 1908 classive novel "Anne of Green Gables," in partnership with a Canadian broadcast of the new show by CBC next year.
The entirely of "Anne" season one was written by Moira Walley-Beckett, a veteran writer of "Breaking Bad" and the creator of dark ballet drama "Flesh and Bone." One of her "Breaking Bad" episodes -- "Ozymandias" -- was singled out by series creator Vince Gilligan as "the best episode we ever had or ever will have," and it earned Walley-Beckett an Emmy for best writing in a drama series, the first time a woman has won the award solo. (Fun fact: The director of that episode, Rian Johnson, is directing the coming Star Wars film that picks up where "The Force Awakens" left off.)
Niki Caro, the director of "Whale Rider" and "North Country," will direct the two-hour premiere episode.
