HBO Nabs Pitch From 'Blink' Author Malcolm Gladwell
Best-selling Blink author and journalist Malcolm Gladwell has sold a series pitch to HBO.
Gladwell has teamed with screenwriter Charles Randolph (The Life of David Gale, The Interpreter) for a project set in Cold War-era Berlin. It centers on a missionary who becomes involved in the CIA.
Randolph will write and executive produce, with Gladwell joining Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg as nonwriting executive producers.
Gladwell has written about the world of espionage for the New Yorker and joined forces with Randolph to develop an idea set in the spy world. Levinson has been working on a separate spy project, and the producers decided to join forces.
HBO will produce in association with Leverage and Closest to the Hole Prods.
