Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner will play Bernie and Ruth Madoff in an ABC miniseries called Madoff, and on Friday the network released the first photo of the stars in character.

Per an ABC release, Madoff “will follow the prodigious rise and abrupt demise of the former investment advisor and convicted felon, and the subsequent fallout on his family, associates and investors.” The project was inspired by investigating reporting from ABC News chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross, who wrote the book The Madoff Chronicles. Other cast members include Frank Whaley (as Harry Markopolos), Erin Cummings (Eleanor Squillari), Charles Grodin (as Carl Shapiro) and Lewis Black (as Ezra Merkin). Raymond De Felitta (City Island)will direct the project, which is currently filming in New York.

Madoff will debut later this year.
