James M. Cain novel coming soon to TV?

Kate Winslet, apparently feeling that she just hasn't won enough awards lately (or starred in enough super-depressing movies), is hoping to play the title role in a TV miniseries based on the James M. Cain novel Mildred Pierce. I'm not a fan of either this novel or its original film adaptation, but it sounds like it would be right up Winslet's alley, seeing as it features crappy spouses, dead kids, and self-inflicted financial misery... all subjects she's tackled before, and with great enthusiasm.
