Nathan Lane also co-stars in the project playing a reporter working on a *hot* story about the company, on the hunt for crucial evidence.

Justin Chadwick (Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom) will direct the pilot, from a script penned by Milch, who'll also executive produce alongside Art and John Linson and Frank Rich.
