TV series based on L.A Confidential in the works

A TV series based on “L.A Confidential” is in the works.

New Regency, Lionsgate Television and CBS Television Studios are reportedly developing a TV adaptation of James Ellroy’s 1990 novel.

The book was previously adapted into the 1897 award-magnet starring Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kevin Spacey and Kim Basinger. A sequel had been discussed, but never came to fruition.

The series, which Jordan Harper is set to write and executive produce, would follow the paths of three homicide detectives, a female reporter, and a Hollywood actress as they intersect while the detectives pursue a sadistic serial killer through the seedy underbelly of 1950’s Los Angeles.

This isn’t the first time a series based on Ellroy’s novel has gone before the cameras.
A pilot for an “L.A Confidential” series was filmed several years ago, with Kiefer Sutherland and Aussie actress Melissa George in key roles, but was never picked up to series.
