AMC has begun development of a long-rumored television series based on Martin Scorsese’s acclaimed 1990 crime film Goodfellas, Deadline reports. Nicholas Pileggi, who adapted the movie with Scorsese from the nonfiction book Wiseguy, will co-write the drama with Homicide: Life on the Street‘s Jorge Zamacona.
Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Goodfellas follows the rise and fall of Lucchese crime family associates Henry Hill (played by Ray Liotta) and his friends in New York from 1955 to 1980.
Warner Horizon Television is producing the series, with Pileggi and Zamacona set to executive produce alongside the film’s producer Irwin Winkler and his son David.
