Tarantino's "Bounty Law"

In the feature "Once Upon A Time In...Hollywood", written/directed by Quentin Tarantino, the character 'Rick Dalton' (Leonardo DiCaprio) stars in the 'Old West' TV series "Bounty Law". Now Tarantino reveals he has five "Bounty Law" half-hour episodes he would like to shoot on film, in black and white for Netflix:

"...I wrote five episodes of a TV series," said Tarantino. "It's 'Bounty Law'. I ended up starting to really like the idea of 'Jake Cahill', as a character. I really started loving those half hour '50s Western scripts. The idea that you could write something like 24 minutes, where there was so much story crammed in those half hour shows, with a real beginning and a middle and an end. Also it was kind of fun because you can't just keep doubling down and exploring. At some point, you've got to wrap it up. I really liked that idea. I've written five different episodes for a possible 'Bounty Law' black-and-white half hour Western show.

"So I'll probably write about three other episodes and then just do it. Direct every episode. They're a half hour long. I wouldn't mind doing it for Netflix but I'd want to shoot it on film.
