Starz has given a straight-to-series ten-episode order to filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s new drama series “The One Percent”.

Hilary Swank is in final negotiations to play his wife, Laura Murphy. Ed Harris will guest star as the family patriarch, Nathaniel Cobb.
Inarritu, Alexander Dinelaris Jr, NicolÃ¡s Giacobone and Armando Bo will serve as executive producers and Inarritu will direct the first two episodes which will set the visual style of the show.
