Tribeca Sets Up ‘The Good Shepherd’ Series Adaptation At Showtime With Robert De Niro Directing & Eric Roth Writing, Drama At CBS

EXCLUSIVERobert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal’s Tribeca Prods. continues a strong selling season with deals at Showtime for The Good Shepherd and at CBS for a family medical drama from TV writer/playwright Diana Son (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Both projects are produced by CBS TV Studios where Tribeca is under an overall deal. Rosenthal and De Niro executive produce, with Tribeca’s Berry Welsh serving as producer.

Showtime is developing The Good Shepherd, a period drama based on the characters from the 2006 Cold War feature spy thriller directed by De Niro and co-produced by Tribeca. The film’s writer, Oscar winner Eric Roth, will write/exec produce the series adaptation, with De Niro set to direct, the first time the Oscar winner has been attached to direct a Tribeca TV project. The series will follow the family of a CIA operative.

Producers originally planned to do a Good Shepherd feature sequel but opted to pursue pay cable for an opportunity to delve deeper into the characters in a serialized format. The 2006 movie starred Matt Damon as a senior CIA officer, with Angelina Jolie, William Hurt and Alec Baldwin, De Niro co-starring.

This would mark the first series created by CAA-repped Roth in two decades, since the 1992 Fox musical drama The Heights, which he co-created. He spent the last two decades mostly in features, earning four Academy Award writing nominations and winning for Forrest Gump. He is currently an executive producer on Netflix’s House Of Cards and served as co-executive producer on HBO’s Luck. Read More »
