Actors Julianne Moore and Robert De Niro are set to team with “Joy” and “Silver Linings Playbook” director David O. Russell for a serialized limited TV series.
The project would be Russell’s most significant foray into TV, but there’s no indication what other writers are involved at present. Russell had previously developed projects at FX, CBS and ABC.
Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan and Megan Ellison will produce. The project is expected to be shopped around later this month and network buyers are asking for a major financial commitment even in advance of a formal pitch from Russell himself.
No word on what network would be interested or suitable for the material, or even what the series is about at this point.
