David O. Russell's hot streak continues.
ABC has picked up a new drama from the writer-director, who just received two Oscar nominations for American Hustle, straight to series.
The untitled project is described as an upstairs-downstairs soap centered on a private country club. Russell will executive-produce with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich), and Sarah Timberman & Carl Beverly (Elementary). The news was first reported by Deadline.
This is Russell's first foray into television.
