DETROIT (AP) — A producer says a stage show is in the works about assisted-suicide advocate Dr. Jack Kevorkian.

Steve Jones, CEO of Bee Holder Productions, tells The Detroit News (http://detne.ws/1Q8GlKg ) the tentatively titled "Dr. Death: Jack of All Trades" will look at Kevorkian's art, music and writings. Jones was a producer for "You Don't Know Jack," a 2010 HBO movie about Kevorkian.

Kevorkian died in 2011 in suburban Detroit at age 83. He sparked the national right-to-die debate with a homemade suicide machine that helped end the lives of about 130 ailing people.

Meanwhile, Jones says a TV miniseries is planned about the late automotive innovator John Z. DeLorean that's to be partially filmed in Detroit.

The newspaper says Jones hopes the projects will be finished by late 2016 or early 2017.
