AMC Planning A “Goodfellas” Series

AMC, home of “Mad Men”, “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad”, is developing a TV series based on arguably Martin Scorsese’s most universally acclaimed feature – the 1990 mob classic “Goodfellas” reports Deadline.

The original film followed the rise and fall of the Lucchese crime family associate Henry Hill (Liotta) and his friends from 1955 to 1980. No word on how much this will tie-in to the original film content wise.

Nicholas Pileggi and Irwin Winkler, who wrote and produced the film respectively, are teaming with writer-producer Jorge Zamacona (“Homicide: Life On The Street”) to executive produce.
