The “Breaking Bad” and “The Path” star will serve as an executive producer with John and Thomas Sonntag. The brothers will pen the project and Paul will produce by way of his Lucid Road banner.
The potential series, “Blackmail,” follows a young married couple after they suffer a life-changing accident and decide to get back at the man responsible by threatening to reveal his infidelity to his fiancee. But when things turn out to be more sinister than the couple originally thought, a dark game of cat-and-mouse sets them on the path to becoming a power couple.
The hourlong project, hailing from Universal TV, marks the first TV sale for the Sonntag brothers.
Paul’s Lucid Road also has “The Street” set up at AMC.
Paul and the Sonntags are repped by UTA. The brothers are additionally handled by Mosaic and Jeff Frankel.
