Robert DeNiro and his Tribeca Films partner, Jane Rosenthal, and R.J. Cutler (FX's Black. White) are teaming up to develop a reality show for NBC.
According to Variety, all parties involved are keeping a tight lip on the details of the show. Their fear is that confirming the concept would allow another network to attempt its own knock-off version.
Cutler says, "It's a very simple idea...a simple concept; amazingly, nobody's ever done it before." He also pointed out the show won't be competition-based.
The trio is expected to get to work on the pilot soon, with Cutler's Actual Reality as the base of production. Look for the show to air in the fall.
