Kathryn Bigelow, who brought us the Oscar nominated film, The Hurt Locker will direct a pilot for HBO, according to Reuters. The drama will be called, “The Miraculous Years“ and it will explore a New York family through the lens of a charismatic, self-destructive Broadway composer.
“The Miraculous Years” will feature a flamboyant character at the center and will be written by John Logan. He’ll work alongside Bigelow aka the “It” director of the moment, as she tries to take over the television world as she has with film. Bigelow, who recently became the first woman to win an award from the Directors Guild of America, also has plans to direct the South America-set feature Triple Frontier.
Logan whose previous works include The Last Samurai and Sweeney Todd has also been nominated for a few Academy Awards. He has earned two original screenplay nominations for Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator and Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. These two movie powerhouses could be TV’s saving grace if they can take the magic of their silver screen efforts and bring it into our homes.
What do you think of the story for The Miraculous Years? Do you think this new project of Bigelow’s will be worth watching?
