Boal, Ellison Plan Film About 2016 Election

Having already worked together on the likes of Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Hurt Locker,” producer Megan Ellison and writer Mark Boal are re-teaming for a political drama event series about the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.

The plan is to develop the eight to ten-episode series through Boal’s Page 1 company in which Ellison is a partner. Boal expects to make his directorial debut on the series which he will pen the script for.

Additionally Hugo Lindgren, a former editor of the New York Times magazine, is assembling a group of investigative journalists as contributors to the project.

Boal and Ellison don’t have a broadcast partner at this point.
