Robert Schenkkan’s drama about President Lyndon Johnson’s first year in office will be directed for TV by Jay Roach, according to the report, which was not confirmed by HBO. HBO acquired the rights to adapt the play in July 2014, about a month after it also won the Tony Award as Best Play.

Roach produced and directed Cranston in Trumbo, a film about blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, which is scheduled for release later this year. Roach directed another politically themed 2012 HBO project, "Game Change," about Republican John McCain and Sarah Palin’s 2008 campaign for the White House.
