Stone To Helm Showtime’s “Guantanamo”

Oliver Stone has been slated to direct the two-hour opening episode of “Guantanamo,” a new scripted drama series which will air on Showtime.

The premium cabler has won a competitive bidding war for the ten episode first season which marks Stone’s first foray into scripted television. Weinstein Television will produce.

The story will focus on the detainees held in the world’s most controversial prison, and those who defend and condemn them. Alexandra Milchan (“The Wolf Of Wall Street”) will also produce.

Daniel Voll (“The Unit”) created and will serve as showrunner on the series with a writers room opening in August ahead of production kicking off later this year.
