Miniseries script to be written by Matt Greenberg

USA Network is in development for the miniseries “Succession.”

Project, from Universal Cable Prods., centers on a scenario where following a devastating attack, the American power structure is shaken.

Script will be written by Matt Greenberg, whose background is heavy in the horror and sci-fi genre. Previous work includes bigscreen pic “1408,” as well as “Reign of Fire” and “Halloween H20: 20 Years Later.” On the TV side Greenberg has penned “Masters of Horror” and the pilot for “The Invisible Man.”

Greenberg will exec produce with JP Sarni and Sam Martin. Caroline Self and Darren J. Butler have been hired as nonwriting consultants.

Cabler has recently greenlit politically based miniseries “Political Animals,” from creator Greg Berlanti. Six-episode mini examines a former first lady who has become secretary of state and, while dealing with her own work issues, is struggling to keep her family together after leaving the White House.

“Lone Star” thesp Jimmy Wolk and Brittany Ishibashi have already been cast for “Animals.”

Greenberg is repped by UTA, manager Shelley Browning at Magnolia Entertainment and attorney Jason Sloane.
