A new TV series is generating multiple offers, sight unseen, thanks to the presence of stars of the caliber of Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore along with the show’s A-list creator, David O. Russell.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed notes that details about the project are not being revealed. “There is neither a production company attached nor a network, but CAA — who reps Russell — already has multiple offers for the project sight unseen,” THR reports. “Sources say Russell’s camp is looking for a major commitment for the project, which is said to be a limited series, and its high-level cast.”
The project is emblematic of the ongoing migration of A-list talent from feature films to the small screen. Russell has been churning out Oscar contenders in recent years, including receiving three nominations for Best Director, for “The Fighter,” “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle.”
De Niro, one of the most acclaimed actors of all time, has won two Oscars, for “The Godfather: Part II” and “Raging Bull,” and Moore won an Oscar last year, for “Still Alice.”
“Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan and Megan Ellison are attached to produce the series with Russell at the helm,” THR notes, adding: “Insiders caution that the entire package could still fall apart, but given the high-level talent attached, that seems unlikely.”
