Paramount developing new TV series based on Jim Carrey’s The Truman Show

Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night! Paramount is working on a new Terminator television series, but apparently the studio is also developing another new show with ties to a feature film. According to an article at The Wrap on the studio's new television executives, Paramount is interested in adapting 1998's THE TRUMAN SHOW into a TV series.

The Peter Weir film starred Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank, a man who at first has no idea he's living in a popular reality television series. Jim Carrey and Ed Harris both won Golden Globes for their performances in THE TRUMAN SHOW, as well as Andrew Niccol for Best Screenplay.

I absolutely love THE TRUMAN SHOW, and I can see how a TV show based on a movie involving a television reality series could work, but I have a few questions about THE TRUMAN SHOW as a series. Like how long will it be until Truman finds out what's really going on, and how much of the show will feature the behind-the-scenes stuff? Very interested in seeing what Paramount will do with THE TRUMAN SHOW series.
