When American and producer – Robert De Niro Shows up on TV, it’s always in a superb appearance, and there are usually shriek of laughter involved.

For undoubted reasons, he’s been great on Saturday Night Live and Extras, among other series. He is said to get his first leading cast on the small screen soon alongside screen star Julianne Moore, and the untitled project just landed a stellar home at Amazon.

There’s no need to worry about this being too limited, either, as the studio reportedly dropped a ton of money on not just one season of the new show, but two!

The new series, which will likely fall into the crime drama subgenre, will see Robert De Niro with his Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell, as previously worked with last on Joy.

With the acting prowess of Julianne Moore’s involvement also there, it was clear when it was first announced that this would be a premium piece of entertainment, and Amazon has committed upwards of $160 million in this double-season deal, according to Deadline.

It seems FX was also in the bid to get this drama on their side, but Amazon got the deal locked. The company has proven in the past that it’s comfortable spending money on projects it believes in, and getting a new De Niro crime drama should damned well be worth it.

Each season will consist of eight cuts, so that’s right at $10 million an episode. All episodes are to be written and directed by David O. Russell, making this a lot more than just a side project for the Joy director.

While the filmmaker’s movies aren’t made on the cheap or anything, he’s not a director well known for big action set pieces, so it would be awesome to see him return to his Three Kings days for this project. Loads of crime drama can be done for $10 million and episode. If only we knew anything else about the show to guess what all that crime will look like.

Julianne Moore also isn’t one who appears on TV all that often, with her biggest role to date being a recurring one on 30 Rock, she appeared on both Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer and the underseen Hulu comedy Difficult People this year. She’s to be seen in Todd Haynes’ time-spanning drama Wonderstruck.

Meanwhile, Robert De Niro is to be seen on the big screen again in the long-in-the-works comedy appropriately titled The Comedian, and also appear on TV next year for HBO’s Bernie Madoff movie The Wizard of Lies.


No word or not whether this top-notch series will hit Amazon’s streaming lineup in 2017 or 2018, but it doesn’t need to be said that fans will be waiting to watch.

What shows, popular screen cast are you looking forward to next year? We do pray, tell…
