Writer-producer Aaron Sorkin, who already has a series pilot about a cable news network titled “More As This Story Develops” shooting for HBO, is already developing a second series for the channel, according to Deadline Hollywood.
The new project is a miniseries based on the book “Life At The Marmont” by Raymond R. Sarlot and Fred Basten. The Marmont is the infamous Sunset Strip hotel where the corpse of John Belushi was discovered in 1982. Countless movie stars (and Hunter S. Thompson) have lodged there since the 1930s, among them Greta Garbo, Errol Flynn, Judy Garland and Lindsay Lohan.
“The Office” star John Krasinski will produce and is expected to star in the project, which he sees as an eight-hour affair.
Sorkin’s writing credits include “A Few Good Men,” “The American President,” “Sports Night,” “The West Wing,” “Studio 60,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Social Network” and “Moneyball.”
