David O. Russell and Susannah Grant Receive TV Series Order From ABC

David O. Russell, writer/director of the recently Oscar nominated American Hustle, will be teaming up with Erin Brockovich’s writer Susannah Grant to fulfill a straight-to-series 13-episode order from ABC for a new drama. The story, co-written by Russell and Grant, will take place at a private country club. Grant will take over the rest of the writing, but the duo will both be executive producers for the show. Although ABC will be airing the show, it will be co-produced with CBS studios. It was developed through CBS and Timberman/Beverly studios.

This will be Russell’s first Television production. Coming in from a hot streak of almost annual Oscar nominations, one could only hope that the new show is a success. As for Grant, she created and executively produced CBS’s A Gifted Man. The release of the show has yet to be announced.
