The History of Violence helmer is teaming with Media Rights Capital for his first foray into television. He will direct the pilot as well as serve as an executive producer on Knifeman, based on biography by Wendy Moore.
The drama, which has yet to be shopped to buyers, focuses on the trials and triumphs of a radical, self-educated surgeon, delivering a visceral portrait of the extraordinary and unorthodox lengths he will go to uncover the secrets of the human body. Cronenberg will be a partner on the project, much as David Fincher is on MRC’s House of Cards, set to debut on Netflix this year.
