The 2016 presidential election will be revisited in a political drama series that’s in the works from filmmaker Mark Boal and producer Megan Ellison, frequent collaborators who were both involved in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty,” Deadline.com reports.
The series will reportedly run eight to 10 hours.
“The two said they don’t have a broadcast partner as yet, but their plan is to develop the series through Boal’s Page 1 company, in which Ellison is a partner,” Deadline notes. Boal expects to make his debut as a director on the series, along with writing a script for the project.
“Hugo Lindgren, a former editor of the New York Times magazine who now is president of Page 1, is assembling a group of investigative journalists in New York and Washington D.C. as contributors to the project,” Deadline notes.
