Richard Price, the novelist and “The Wire” writer, is working on a new TV project, which is an adaptation of the BBC’s limited series “Inside Men,” reports Deadline.com.
Price is writing the project for Howard Gordon’s Teakwood Lane, based at 20th Century Fox TV. The adaptation is being eyed as a TV drama series that will be produced by Fox 21, which also works on Teakwood Lane’s “Homeland” and “Tyrant,” the story says.
“Inside Men” provides a look at a robbery from many POVs, and is a project that Gordon has been seeking to adapt since it debuted in 2012, the piece notes. After developing it internally, the project will be taken out later this year with one or more written scripts and a story bible.
“My expectation is that it will be phenomenal — this is as strong a project as any we have,” Fox 21 President Bert Salke said.
Price’s novels include “Lush Life” and “Clockers,” while his screenplays include “The Color of Money,” for which he was nominated for an Oscar.
