“Office” star and “Social Network” scribe developing project about fabled Hollywood haunt
The "Office" star and the "Social Network" scribe are teaming up to develop a miniseries for HBO about famed Hollywood hotel/hot spot Chateau Marmont, the pay cable outlet confirms to TheWrap. A favorite haunt among fun-loving celebrities, the Chateau has served as the site of John Belushi's death and, more recently, Lindsay Lohan's late-night shenanigans.
Krasinski and Sorkin will co-executive produce, with Krasinski, a habitue of the Marmont, also expected to take an acting role in the project. Based on the 1987 book "Life at the Marmont" by former co-owner Raymond R. Sarlot with Fred E. Basten, the miniseries will tell interconnected stories about Marmont patrons over several generations.
The miniseries, which is in early development, is currently untitled.
News of the project was first reported by Deadline.
