Soderbergh, Frank, Padilha Plan New Series

Steven Soderbergh and his “Out of Sight” scribe Scott Frank are re-teaming for the limited period western series “Godless” on Netflix. Frank is penning, directing and executive producing the series which Soderbergh and Casey Silver will also executive produce.

Set in 1884 in a New Mexico mining town, plot specifics are being kept under wraps. Casting is now underway with filming about to take place in Santa Fe.

He isn’t the only one announcing new series today. “Narcos” executive producer/director Jose Padilha has begun development of the ten-episode limited series “The Brand” at Showtime.

Alessandro Camon (“The Messenger”) penned the script about the rise of prison gangs, particularly the Aryan Brotherhood, in the 1970s and 1980s when mass incarceration caused the prison population to explode.
