A comedy project has been ordered to series by HBO, although the pay-cable channel wasn’t commenting. Deadline.com reports that David Fincher’s “Living On Video” has an order from the channel for a 10-episode first season.
The show is set in 1983 Los Angeles and the burgeoning video music business.
Fincher “is revisiting his music video director roots with the comedy, written by Rich Wilkes (‘xXx’) and Bob Stephenson, a friend of Fincher’s from his music video days, based on an idea by Fincher,” the report notes.
Fincher is known for directing “The Social Network” and “Gone Girl,” and executive produces “House of Cards.”
