Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore to star in David O’Russell’s secret TV drama

Oscars winner Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore are rumoured to be headlining a secret new drama created by Silver Linings Playbook-director David O’Russell.

Not much is known about the series so far, but it’s thought to be a 90s-set crime drama designed to run for multiple seasons, according to Deadline.

The show is yet to find a home, with producers apparently targeting cable networks and streaming services like Netflix, but with such high calibre talent both in front of and behind the camera, it shouldn’t be too long before someone snaps it up.

Should the series make it to air, its stars would join an increasingly long list of movie actors who’ve made the jump to the small screen.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson Kicked off the trend by headlining the first season of True Detective, which also managed to score Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Amy Adams for its second, less successful run, while Netflix will soon be showing Maniacs, starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.

Before De Niro can re-team with O’Russell for a fourth time, he has to finish work playing disgraced financier Bernie Madoff in HBO movie Wizard of Lies. Moore, meanwhile, has Todd Haynes’ drama Wonderstruck up next.
