ABC orders drama from David O. Russell
David O. Russell is on a streak in the film world, and now he’s going to try his hand at television.
EW has confirmed that ABC has ordered an untitled soapy drama project from the American Hustle director and Erin Brockovich writer Susannah Grant straight to series. The show, described as “an upstairs/downstairs soap centered on a private country club,” will be co-produced by CBS Studios and ABC Studios.
Russell’s American Hustle is currently up for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture — an award his films Silver Linings Playbook and The Fighter were also nominated for in their respective years.
