"12 Years a Slave" director Steve McQueen has lined up his next project, and it will be at HBO. The Brit director is developing a New York-set drama series for the cable network.
McQueen and "World War Z" scribe Matthew Michael Carnahan are co-writing together; McQueen is set to direct the pilot should the series see production.
Details are scarce at the moment, but the project reportedly centers on a young African-American man, with an enigmatic past, who becomes part of New York high society.
