David Mamet Developing Series for Fox EW

Fox is developing a project with writer-director David Mamet of “Glengarry Glen Ross,” reports EW.com’s Inside TV. The project is a limited drama series, “7 Deadly Sins.”

The network says the project is "based on the seven deadly sins, which form the backdrop for a tapestry of interconnected stories about the human condition through David Mamet’s unique lens.”

Mamet will executive produce, write and direct the first episode and write at least two other episodes, the story says.

Mamet has written and directed a number of feature films, including "The Spanish Prisoner" and "House of Games." He won a Pulitzer Prize in 1984 for "Glengarry Glen Ross." He is the creator of CBS's "The Unit" and has written or directed episodes of TV shows including "Hill Street Blues" and "The Shield."
