Steve McQueen, the director behind 12 Years a Slave, is headed to HBO to write, executive produce, and direct his latest project, Codes of Conduct.

EW has confirmed that HBO has picked up the series, written by McQueen and World War Z co-writer Matthew Michael Carnahan, for a limited run—six episodes to be exact.

The new series, which is set to star Helena Bonham Carter, Rebecca Hall, Paul Dano, and newcomer Devon Terrell, follows Beverly Snow (Terrell), a young African American man from Queens, on his journey through the ranks of Manhattan’s high society.

In total, the show has six executive producers, including McQueen, Carnahan, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, The King’s Speech‘s Iain Canning and Emile Sherman, and The Newsroom‘s Alan Poul.
