mcqueenAfter receiving raving reviews for his poignant film 12 Years a Slave, director Steve McQueen has been tapped by HBO for more work. According to Deadline, McQueen is developing a TV drama series for HBO. This is his first project for television.

Much information about the project hasn’t been released, however it has been described as a mix between Six Degrees Of Separation and Shame. The show will follow “a young African-American man’s experience entering New York high society, with a past that may not be what it seems.”

Casting is still underway for the project, however Russell Simmons and World War Z co-writer Matthew Michael Carnahan have been tapped to executive produce the series.

    Love him. Get rid of Russell Simmons and he will be good to go.

    Man…12 years a Slave was no joke. This man is a truly brilliant director and no one can tell our story like we can so I truly appreciate him for taking the risk to bring to life one hell of an effed up experience to life.
