HBO Developing KGB Sleeper Drama

HBO is developing a period drama tentatively titled “Reds” about KGB sleeper spies in America in the 1980’s reports Deadline.

The story is based on real-life events from “Pirates of Silicon Valley” filmmaker Martyn Burke’s early career when he was making a documentary, unaware the sound man on the film was a Soviet Colonel.

Said man later set up his base of operations outside New York City while attempting to raise a family as an ordinary American citizen.

Burke is set to develop the series, though is currently occupied editing a documentary and in pre-production on a Luis Donaldo Colosio biopic.
