New pay cabler develops series

Stone, Wagner teaming up to create Epix drama

Epix continues to stoke its original programming pipeline. Pay cabler’s latest effort is a development deal with Oliver Stone and scribe Bruce Wagner for a drama series based on Wagner’s 2003 novel “Still Holding.”

Series is described as exploring the colliding worlds of three disparate people living in Los Angeles. Stone and Wagner, who previously collaborated on the 1993 ABC miniseries “Wild Palms,” will serve as exec producers. Wagner recently served as a writer-producer on Tracey Ullman’s sketch comedy “State of the Union” for Showtime.

“The team at Epix showed early on they could provide the supportive environment and creative freedom necessary to recognize the vision Bruce and I have for ‘Still Holding,’ ” Stone said in a statement.

Epix’s first development project, drama “Tough Trade,” has completed its pilot. There’s no word yet on a series greenlight, but the pay cabler has ordered three more scripts from exec producers Chris Offutt and Jenji Kohan. Cabler is also developing a half-hour series project, “iCon,” with Larry Charles ( Daily Variety , March 17).

Epix is jointly owned by Viacom, Lionsgate and MGM.
