Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, David O. Russell TV Series Lands at Amazon

David O. Russell’s TV series starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore has landed at Amazon, sources tell Variety. The Weinstein Company is producing.

The high-profile package was put together this August and was shopped around to networks and production companies shortly after. Insiders tell Variety that FX and Amazon emerged as the front-runners, and in early October, Amazon had become the likely home for the series.

Details on the plot and storyline are scarce, though the project is believed to be serialized. While an episodic commitment has not been announced at this time, industry sources say De Niro’s paycheck is a hefty $850,000 per episode.

O’Russell will write and direct all episodes. He will work alongside Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan and Megan Ellison, who are all on board as producers.

The project marks O’Russell’s big foray into TV, following award-winning films, including “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle,” and most recently “Joy.”

De Niro and Moore, both Academy Award winners, are the latest A-listers to flock to television. The trend started with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson signing on for the first season of HBO’s “True Detective” and Halle Berry starring in “Extant” on CBS. Coming up on Showtime is “Purity,” starring James Bond’s Daniel Craig, and also “Maniac” at Netflix with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.

O’Russell, De Niro, and Moore are all repped by CAA.
