HBO is bringing together a triple powerhouse of talent to head up its pilot script for Buda Bridge. At the center of the it all is Michael Roskam, who received an Oscar nom in Best Foreign-Language Film for his Belgian production Bullhead. Roskam is set to write and direct the pilot, as well as executive produce. Sharing the producer credit is Michael Mann, who partnered up with David Milch last year for the fantastic (but belegured) horse racing series Luck (also on HBO). Finishing out the trio is Mark Johnson, an executive producer on Breaking Bad. That credit speaks for itself.
Buda Bridge is a Belgian-set crime story set in a Brussels of the near future. A woman is found dead on Buda Bridge, which leads to violent crimes and oddities that unleashes mayhem on the capital city. Twin Peaks: Europe?
