Starz Teaming with Owen Wilson on Reagan-Era Drama WonderWorld


Starz Chief Executive Officer, Chris Albrecht, announced today that STARZ has put into development a new hour-long scripted drama “WonderWorld,” with Owen Wilson, Rene Balcer, Fred Berner, and Regina Lee.

Set in Ronald Reagan’s America and inspired by one of the biggest undercover operations in FBI history, “WonderWorld” follows two straight-arrow FBI agents as they infiltrate the violent Mob-controlled porn industry of the 1980s, with dire consequences for themselves and their families.

Owen Wilson will executive produce along with Rene Balcer and Fred Berner. Regina Lee will produce. Balcer will also be writer and show runner on “WonderWorld.”
