Robert Downey Jr. and True Detective Creator Join Together For New HBO Show


Nic Pizzolato (True Detective Creator) is working on a new HBO drama which will feature Robert Downey Jr. in a starring role. The cable network has yet to confirm or comment on the project’s premise, but  sources say it may be based on Downey’s long-in-the-works Perry Mason reboot. The script will be penned by Pizzolato, while the Iron Man actor will serve as executive producer alongside wife Susan Downey. It will mark Downey’s first television appearance since his stint on Fox comedy/drama Ally McBeal from 2000 to 2002.
