Starz has put into development hourlong scripted drama WonderWorld, from Owen Wilson, Rene Balcer, Fred Berner, and Regina Lee. Set in Ronald Reagan’s America and inspired by one of the biggest undercover operations in FBI history, WonderWorld follows two straight-arrow FBI agents as they infiltrate the violent Mob-controlled porn industry of the 1980s, with dire consequences for themselves and their families. Wilson is executive producing. Emmy winner Rene Balcer will be writer and showrunner and will executive produce alongside Wilson and Berner, with Lee serving as a producer. Wilson is repped by UTA and attorney Bob Wallerstein; Balcer is with UTA and Don Walerstein; Berner is with Verve and Jeanne Newman.
