Anne of Green Gills, coming to a TV near you.

“Anne With an E” is being overseen, written and co-produced by Moira Walley-Beckett, a “Breaking Bad” writer from Canada who also created “Flesh and Bone,” a 2015 Starz series about the physically and mentally brutal field of ballet. Walley-Beckett won an Emmy for writing “Ozymandias,” the watch-through-your-fingers episode of “Breaking Bad” in which the heroic cop Hank Schrader is slaughtered in the New Mexican desert because of his brother-in-law, the meth lord Walter White. This may seem like a counterintuitive credit for someone updating “Anne of Green Gables,” but it is a signal of the project’s aspirations.

Oh no! What next? Cinderella in a brothel? Little Women sold into slavery? Peter the transgender Rabbit tracked down and slaughtered by the ruthless Rin Tin Tin, who was abandoned as a puppy and grew up in a cruel animal-breeding farm?
