Vince Gilligan, creator and executive producer of the Breaking Bad TV series has signed on to write for Raven, a limited series about Jim Jones for HBO. Gilligan will work once again with Michelle MacLaren, who will direct Raven. Both will also serve as executive directors along with actress Octavia Spencer on the project, reports Deadline.

Raven is based on Tim Reiterman’s personal account of meeting Jones in Guyana in November of 1978 and he barely lived to tell about it in his book, Raven: The Untold Story of Jim Jones and His People. The book tells the history of Jones’ life from childhood to his death, as well as many of the followers of The Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ cult.
