EXCLUSIVE: Relativity Television has partnered with Georgeville Television and actor/producer Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) for Limitless, a scripted TV series based on Relativity’s hit 2011 movie starring and executive produced by Cooper. He will executive produce the drama, with the film’s producers Leslie Dixon and Scott Kroopf serving as co-executive producers. The announcement will be made at the upcoming MIPCOM market in Cannes, where Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh will give a keynote speech Tuesday. “Limitless is the perfect example of Relativity’s multiplatform approach to creating quality content,” he said. Added Georgeville TV CEO Marc Rosen, “The film has an organic natural extension into a compelling and sophisticated one-hour drama that is both a thrill-ride and a social commentary.”

The Limitless feature, which starred Cooper, Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish, is a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret “smart drug” that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life. (Watch the trailer after the jump.) The film opened at No. 1 at the domestic box office on its way to grossing more than $160 million worldwide and subsequently sold 2 million-plus home video units. Read More »
