David Chase is working with FX on his next TV project.
The network said it will pilot a new show from the creator of The Sopranos and writer/director Hannah Fidell (Pam & Tommy).
The project is based on a previously un-produced script by Chase and will feature a contemporary take by Fidell, who will also direct the pilot. FX Prods. will produce it.
FX declined to say what the project was.
Chase previously wrote and developed A Ribbon of Dreams, a six-part miniseries for HBO that told the story of the beginnings of Hollywood, following a college-educated mechanical engineer and a cowboy with a violent past, who form an unlikely producing partnership and together become pioneers and then powers for a time in motion pictures. He said that it was all lined up but HBO wanted him to shoot in Ontario and “there was a problem with money” so Chase and the premium cable network parted ways on it.
Executive Producers are Chase, Fidell, and Chase Films’ Nicole Lambert.
Chase has a first look film and television deal with Warner Bros. Discovery and is represented by UTA and Gendler & Kelly.
Fidell ran and directed FX’s limited series A Teacher starring Kate Mara and Nick Robinson. She also wrote, directed and produced the Universal Pictures film A Long Dumb Road, and helmed episodes of the Hulu series Pam & Tommy.
She has a first-look deal with FX Productions and is represented by UTA and Grandview, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz.
