AppleTV+ Picks Up Untitled Drama from Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to an untitled original drama series executive produced by Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey.

Based on the Toronto Life article "The Sting" by Michael Lista, the drama centers on a frustrated Canadian detective who takes on a decades-old case in hopes of winning a confession and becoming a hero. The case quickly spirals out of control when the undercover cop attempts an elaborate sting, adding playacting cops, taxpayer resources and an unexpected friendship with the peculiar target.

Adam Perlman developed the drama. He will executive produce with Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey and Amanda Burrell. Lista will serve as a co-executive producer. Team Downey will produce.
