A couple of high-profile veteran writers in the mafia genre are set to dive back into the underworld of crime and mobsters.
Showtime is developing a new mafia drama series that will be written by Terence Winter, and inspired by Nicholas Pileggi's in-depth knowledge of organized crime in America — as seen through the eyes of the mafia's First Family, according to Deadline.
Winter and Pileggi will also serve as executive producers for the still untitled show alongside Imagine Television's Brian Grazer and Samie Kim Falvey.
Mobster bound: The Sopranos writer and executive producer Terence Winter is diving back into the underworld of crime and mobsters
Joining forces: Winter is teaming up with Goodfellas co-writer Nicholas Pileggi for a new mafia-genre drama series that has already been greenlit by Showtime
Showtime has already greenlit the project but so far have released very few details about the storyline.
But still, it could have the makings of being the next big hit in the mafia genre considering that both Winter and Pileggi have been creative forces behind a number blockbuster mobster films and television series.
Winter, 59, was a writer and executive producer for the HBO television series The Sopranos from the show's second to sixth and final season (2000–2007).
