UPDATE: Epix is probably the 4th place pay channel right now, behind HBO, Showtowm, and Starz. But Oliver Stone just signed a development deal to turn Bruce Wagner’s novel Still Holding into a series pilot with Epix which is furiously trying to sign up carriers. Stone had a previous relationship with HBO, which aired his controversial documentaries. Now he’s doing this project as a favor to Wagner at Epix, which is a joint venture of Viacom, Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM. Epix is looking for original programming after setting up the show iCon, with Larry Charles writing the pilot about a Steve Jobs-like Silicon Valley megalomaniac. Oliver will unveil his sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps at the Cannes Film Festival next month.
