Goodfellas TV Series in Development at AMC

By Brian Gallagher — January 10th, 2012

AMC has boarded a new TV adaptation of Goodfellas, which we first reported on in September 2010.

Nicholas Pileggi, who adapted his own book entitled Wiseguy into the Goodfellas screenplay, is co-writing the pilot script with Jorge Zamacona. Irwin Winkler, who produced Goodfellas, will executive produce alongside his son David Winkler.

Goodfellas, a 1990 Best Picture nominee directed by Martin Scorsese, told the story of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), and his rise through the ranks of the Luchesse crime family.

Warner Horizon Television will produce the Goodfellas TV series, although no production schedule was given.
