Hill will play Korshak, and the story will follow the following true story:

Wasserman was the visionary who in the 1940s liberated actors from film studio control by creating the modern talent agency and then straddled both lines until the government made him choose and Wasserman shed talent representation for producing. Wasserman’s empire-building was abetted by Korshak, an attorney now famous for providing a bridge between organized crime and Hollywood.

Hill and his Strong Baby partners Matt Dines and Ali Goodwin will Executive Produce with LBI/Expanded Media and Monahan. Mark Canton (Power/PowerUniverse) and Celebrands CEO Allen Shapiro will also be executive producers. Author McDougal will also serve as executive producer.
