Cinema Gypsy Prods and Fox Television Studios are developing “The Right Mistake,” a drama series for HBO based on the series of novels by Walter Mosley.
Laurence Fishburne is attached to star as Mosley’s famed Socrates Fortlow character, an ex-convict battling his own inner demons after serving 27 years in prison.
Mosley and Patrick Charles are co-writing the series adaptation. Fishburne actually played the role before for the network, starring as Fortlow in the Michael Apted-directed 1998 HBO telemovie “Always Outnumbered”.
Mosley, Helen Sugland, Tom Russo and Diane Houslin are set to produce.
