Showtime Parties at 'Studio' 54
Series would focus on the legendary New York City club and founder Steve Rubell
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chad Hodge has scripted "Studio" for the premium cable network, with Bryan Singer in talks to direct the pilot.
Singer's availability for the pilot would, naturally, be contingent on his feature-directing schedule.
The trade paper says that "Studio" fill focus on Steve Rubell, starting in the months before he opened New York's legendary Studio 54 in 1977. Rubell will only be one part of the storytelling and the characters around him will reportedly be largely constructs, composites and fictional creations.
The 1998 feature "54" took a similar approach, surrounding Mike Myers' Rubell with an assortment of not-quite-real characters. That project was a critical and box office dud.
Hodge's credits include "Veritas: The Quest," produced by Zadan and Meron and "True Calling." He created The CW's short-lived "Runaway."
