The series is being developed by Dern and his producing partner Jayme Lemons through their company Jaywalker Pictures. Abe Sylvia, who is behind Jessica Chastain's upcoming series George & Tammy, will write, produce and direct the series.
Ricky Martin, who played Antonio D'Amico, Gianni Versace's partner, in the FX series dedicated to the murder of the famous Italian couturier in Miami Beach, is set to pursue a career in film as well.
