Redford, HBO Team For “Burgess” Mini-Series

Robert Redford has signed a two-year, first-look television deal with HBO with the first project being the mini-series “The Burgess Boys”.

Based on the 2013 novel by Elizabeth Strout (“Olive Kitteridge”), the story follows two brothers who are haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, and recounts their eventual return to Maine where long-buried tensions surface in ways that change them forever.

Redford optioned the book last year and will executive produce. Marcus Hinchey (“All Good Things”) is penning the script.
