A limited series exploring the Watergate scandal is currently in the works at Netflix from Matt Charman, George Clooney, and Grant Heslov, Variety has learned from sources.

Charman, who worked on the screenplay for the Steven Spielberg film “Bridge of Spies,” will serve as the writer on the eight-part limited series. Sonar Entertainment will produce.

The Watergate scandal began in June 1972 when five men were arrested for breaking into the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate complex in Washington D.C. The subsequent investigation revealed a cover up initiated by high-ranking White House officials that eventually forced the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974.



Charman is repped by CAA and Michael McCoy in the UK, Jeffrey Silver, and attorneys Gretchen Rush and Dan Fox. Smokehouse is repped by CAA.







This marks the second foray into television for Clooney in recent months. In November, it was revealed that Clooney is attached to star in and direct a limited series adaptation of the novel “Catch 22.” Clooney will star in the role of Colonel Cathcart. The series is being eyed for an early 2018 shoot. The episodes of that series were co-written by Luke Davies and David Michôd, who will also executive produce. Richard Brown and Steve Golin will executive produce for Anonymous Content along with Clooney and Heslov under their Smokehouse Pictures banner.

More to come…
