Actor Henry Winkler has landed a deal to make a TV show out of his children's book series.

The Happy Days star has released 17 stories about a dyslexic elementary school pupil named Hank Zipzer, and now they are heading to the small screen.

Winkler, who also has the learning disability, tells U.K. TV presenter Alan Titchmarsh, "We're going to make a television show of Hank Zipzer, the world's greatest underachiever.

"They are comedies first, they are my story, and we're going to make a TV show out of them right here."
