You’ll be hearing plenty of this back on TV in the near future – “Heeeere’s Johnny!”

It was announced on Thursday that NBC is developing a miniseries based on the life of the legendary Tonight Show host Johnny Carson, reports the L.A. Times.

The project is based on the upcoming biography Carson the Magnificent: An Intimate Portrait by author Bill Zehme. The story will cover Carson’s childhood growing up in Nebraska and his 30-year run as Tonight host, which ran from 1962-92.

The miniseries will also touch on “his often secluded off-camera life and friendships he made throughout his career as one of the most beloved TV personalities of all time,” NBC says.
