Robert De Niro and Spike Lee At Work on Showtime Series Alphaville

Spike Lee and Robert De Niro Are Headed to Showtime

Talk about a power duo! Hollywood business titans, Spike Lee and Robert De Niro, are working together on a new series for Showtime called Alphaville. Set in New York's Alphabet City during the crime and drug-filled 80s, the show will focus on the diverse residents of the neighborhood. Both Lee and De Niro will executive produce, and Lee will direct the pilot.

A gritty New York landscape is nothing new to this talented pairing — De Niro's Taxi Driver took place in the very same area, and many of Lee's films have been set in the borough of Brooklyn — so I expect a pretty realistic depiction of this era in Manhattan life. I'm hoping it can be to Showtime and New York what The Wire was to HBO and Baltimore.

The show is just in the development stages right now, so there's no word yet on when it might debut, but will you check it out when it airs?
