Hamilton: A Miniseries?

Dear HBO:  I am in the middle of Ron Chernow's 2004 "Alexander Hamilton."  I loved the "John Adams" mini-series; however, Hamilton would make for a much better subject than Adams.   Hamilton's story has everything: sex scandals (likely involving Hamilton's own birth and his mother's repeated love affairs as well as Hamilton himself), rags to riches, bravery in war,  brilliant ambition,  a sweeping vision that created the Constitution and the United States,  political intrigue, and a duel for honor, ending in Hamilton's death.

I am stunned that you have not turned Chernow's book into  mini-series!
