HBO, David Simon To “Plot Against America”

Hbo David Simon To Plot Against America

With “The Deuce” finishing up, creator David Simon has set his next project at HBO who’ve picked up a new six-episode limited series adaptation of Phillip Roth’s acclaimed 2004 alternative history novel “The Plot Against America”.

The story imagines an alternate American history told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they watch the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator hero and xenophobic populist, who becomes president and turns the nation toward fascism.

Simon will once again team with his “The Wire” collaborator Ed Burns on the project. The pair are writing and executive producing the entire run together and will be joined by producers Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, Nina Noble, Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, Susan Goldberg and David Stratton.
