You’re in the writer’s room for the U2 series. Say there’s 10 episodes (or whatever number you want). What themes, topics, events for each ep?

-The one where they drive through the desert and find the tree
-The one where Bono sorts his whole life in one week
-The one where Edge pours his misery in a guitar solo which turns out to be rubbish
-The one where Bono and Ali travel to Ethiopia
-The one where Bono finds his inner Fly
-The one where Edge buys his Gibson Explorer
-The one where Edge figures out the delay pedal
-The one where Larry and Adam go rogue
-The one where Paul tells them god doesn’t care about legal contracts
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Also want to know if Bono succumb to temptation with Andrea Corr.   If so that episode needs full penetration

I would like to know more about when Mr. The Edge discovered the secret of the universe during the AB/ZooTV era.

Also would like to see more about what went on in Tokyo towards the end of ZOOTV,  specifically the wild escapades and the nightlife.  I know there are some stories that did not make the Flannagin book. 

Probably needs to be an entire episode dedicated to POPMART live in Sarajevo.

I'd like to see them do something different, like ten episodes where the band members themselves become the subjects of their own songs. Name each episode after a song and have fun with it.

Set to Moby's God Moving Over the Face of the Waters, and at that very moment Bono comes up with the lyrics to You're the Best Thing About.

I can't imagine that the series will go up to the present.  Killing Bono ended with the release of TJT, but i'm sure the rumoured NF show will include AB and Zoo TV.  If I had to guess, I'd say it will end with either the release of ATYCLB or the grammy win for HTDAAB.  Or at the very latest Bono recovering from his heart surgery and performing again.

Probably start off with the intro of the ending scene and then going back to the start to see how they got to that point.  Shitt is so formulaic these days...

If they really are filming three full seasons, as the original articles suggested, there’s plenty of room to go all the way from 1976 to the Super Bowl show. The original Vanity Fair article and I think also a Hollywood reporter article said Netflix was signing on for three seasons with an option for a fourth.
