Mildred Pierce executive producer and director Todd Haynes has re-teamed with the HBO miniseries’ executive producers John Wells and Christine Vachon for another period HBO project — drama series Dope. Just like Mildred Pierce, which starred Oscar winner Kate Winslet, an A-list feature actress, Julianne Moore, is circling Dope, which is based on Sara Gran’s novel. Haynes would potentially direct the project, now in development, from a script by Gran who adapted her book. Dope takes place in New York around 1950 and centers on a woman who re-enters her life after being away at the farm to treat her heroin addiction and becomes a private eye. Dope would extend Moore’s relationship with HBO. She stars in the pay-cable network’s upcoming film about the 2008 presidential election, Game Change, portraying former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. The Depression-era Mildred Pierce is the most nominated program at the upcoming 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards with 21 noms, including one in the newly consolidated best movie/miniseries category.
