George Clooney has assembled an A-list package for a TV series set in the 1990s at a Hollywood studio.

Peter Tolan is set to write the script, and Bennett Miller, riding high on the awards buzz for “Foxcatcher,” is on board to direct the pilot for Sony Pictures TV, where Clooney’s Smokehouse has an overall deal.

News of the comedic drama project was first reported by Vulture. It’s said to have been shopped this week to various TV buyers. Given the auspices, it seems likely to command a hefty commitment.

Clooney has dabbled in TV series production in the past, on HBO with Beltway drama “K Street” and Hollywood-centric “Unscripted.”

    Sony should be sued and prosecuted for fraud and human rights abuses. They are purely fraudsters and liars.
