Filmmaker Tony Gilroy ("Michael Clayton," "The Bourne Legacy") and his brother Dan Gilroy are teaming for "Monsieur De Paris," a new drama series from "Hannibal" producers Gaumont International Television.

The story follows the official executioner of France and keeper of the guillotine. Born into his family's profession, this family man refuses to let his job as a sanctioned killer define him.

The project is Tony Gilroy's first attempt at television, and the siblings will co-write and executive produce the series.
