Erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey was almost adapted as a TV show. The CEO of US network Starz Chris Albrecht revealed that he had asked Universal for the rights to the E. L. James’ novels, reported Digital Spy.

If successful, he would have adapted the novels into three seasons, one for each book. He is taking this approach with his upcoming series ‘Outlander’, which is based on a series of romantic fantasy novels by Diana Gabaldon.

“If you read the ‘Outlander’ book, this could only be a series. I’m the guy who called up Universal and said, ‘I’ll get you three years on the air as a series – let’s just do a Fifty Shades of Grey series,” he said.

“You don’t have to worry about box office, you don’t have to worry about a rating, you can tell the story the right way.”

Fifty Shades of Grey movie will release on Valentine’s Day 2015.
