Back in September we reported that David Fincher and James Ellroy were collaborating on a Los Angeles-set 1950s crime noir series for HBO and now that show has a title, Shakedown. Remember when Fincher had those five fallow years between Panic Room and Zodiac? Boy am I glad he’s not repeating that, he’s one of our master filmmakers so I’ll take pretty much whatever he’s serving up.
Fincher will also direct another pilot for HBO called Living On Noise. That series will reportedly center around the director’s involvement in the 1980′s music video scene (you probably already know that he shot videos for Paula Abdul, Madonna, Nine Inch Nails, and Aerosmith back in the day). Hit the jump for more on David Fincher’s involvement in Shakedown and Living On Noise.
