The Departed TV Series In Early Development
Unsurprisingly, The Departed’s ingenious concept of two competing moles working against each other is what drew producer Roy Lee to the idea of migrating the film’s universe to TV, although the current plan is to create a new story with new characters that captures the spirit and tone of the movie without simply being a remake of its script. Lee has compared the idea to FX’s TV adaptation of Fargo, which has managed to serve as a spiritual successor to the Coen Brothers’ film without simply adapting it wholesale. To that end, The Departed TV series would not take place in Boston, and would instead explore the criminal underworld in another as yet undetermined major city. Here is the direct quote from Lee on the matter, per Collider:
“The Departed as a concept is amazing. That’s what attracted me to the story, the two moles working on either side of the law, and translating that idea into other settings with new characters, like how Fargo has taken the feel of the Coen Brother’s film. We were having discussions about making infernal affairs a television series. A different city, so it’s not anything like The Departed, but essentially The Departed as a TV series.”
Lee also says that he and his team of writers are currently having discussions about whether The Departed would be better off becoming a broadcast network show or taking its talents to cable. On the surface, cable (or even a streaming service like Netflix) would seem like a much more viable option, especially for what it sounds like would be a heavily serialized show.
We're flawed, because we want so much more...
The Departed TV Series Being Developed at Amazon
Next to join Amazon’s growing slate of original programming is a series based on Martin Scorsese’s 2006 film, The Departed. It’s only the latest movie property to make the jump to television – Amazon’s other recent acquisition, the in-development Jack Ryan series starring John Krasinski, being another – and though it bears The Departed name it won’t be an exact remake of the film. Instead, the series will take the premise of The Departed (and the Hong Kong film, Internal Affairs, on which it was based) and apply it to present-day Chicago.
Written by Detroit 1-8-7 creator Jason Richman, The Departed television series will (according to Deadline‘s report) follow a young cop as he infiltrates a tough Latino gang, all the while that same gang plants a mole in the Chicago P.D. Much like the films which inspired it, the dramatic tension of the series will come from watching the two men try and keep their cover and complete their mission, most likely thwarting each others’ progress along the way.
