Steve McQueen Sets Up Next Project At HBO - Drama On Young Black Man Navigating NYC High Society



With his recent film “12 Years A Slave” garnering critical acclaim, director Steve McQueen is now eying the small screen for one of his latest projects.

HBO has confirmed to Variety that it is developing a drama from McQueen that centers on a young African American man who is entering New York high society, with a past that may not be what it seems.

McQueen will co-write the untitled project with Matthew Michael Carnahan (“World War Z”). McQueen will also serve as director.

Exec producers on the project include McQueen, Carnahan, Iain Canning, Emil Sherman and Russell Simmons.

In addition to helming “12 Years A Slave,” McQueen’s recent film credits include “Hunger” and “Shame.” His HBO project is his first foray in television.

Deadline was first to report on McQueen’s HBO project.

This is like the 3rd or 4th black led series that hbo has put into development. I guess they need a replacement for Treme (robbed of all the awards).
