A Hollywood Deal[email protected]
Some good news from Los Angeles.
My agent – the great Rena Zimmerman – and I signed a deal with the rising company Ineffable Productions to produce a television series based on The Fix.
Ineffable is to co-produce the series with Ridley Scott’s production company Scott Free. Scott is the director of some of my favourite films including Blade Runner, Prometheus and Gladiator.
The idea is to do a high-value series of The Wire meets Eight Men Out. Both an examination of the world of the match-fixers and the faux world of the sports officials who are claiming to stop it.
It should be that rare thing – riveting, compelling and absolutely truthful television.
