David O Russell assembles Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore for TV series

Oscar-winning actors Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore are teaming up with writer and director David O Russell for a TV show.

Details of the plot have not been revealed but The Wrap reports that the American Hustle director has “already had multiple offers for the project sight unseen”.

There are no details on which TV networks are involved and it is thought it will be a limited series run.

It is the second attempt at TV for Russell, who has been nominated for five Oscars and was behind Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and Joy. In 2014 he pulled out of a US TV drama he was set to make, a month after it was commissioned. The Oscar nominee had co-written ABC’s The Club, a drama set in a private country club. No reason was given for his departure.

Moore started her career on TV in the soap opera As the World Turns and won an Emmy in 2012 for her performance in the HBO TV movie Game Change, in which she played Sarah Palin. De Niro is due to be seen soon in the Bernie Madoff HBO TV movie The Wizard of Lies.

De Niro worked with Russell on Silver Linings Playbook, for which he got a best supporting actor Oscar nomination. He also made an appearance in American Hustle.
