Winstone and Lotan Board HBO’s Ninth


Ray Winstone and Jonah Lotan are set to star on HBO’s drama pilot “Last of the Ninth” from David Milch, says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Ninth” is a gritty drama set in 1972 in the New York Police Department, which is struggling with fiscal problems and allegations of corruption. The project centers on Joe Dalton (Lotan), a young Vietnam veteran who joins the NYPD as an undercover cop. There, veteran detective John Giglio (Winstone) takes him under his wing.

Milch wrote the pilot with Bill Clark; the duo also are executive producers. Carl Franklin is directing the pilot.
