Another high-profile film director is jumping into TV as LA-based Gaumont International Television announced it has set up the hour-long drama Radiant Doors at WGN with Perfect Storm Entertainment.
The deal is for a script against a series commitment. Lin will direct and serve as executive producer for Perfect Storm alongside Danielle Woodrow and Troy Craig Poon.
Leading screenwriter Jeremy Doner will also serve as executive producer. The project is based on an adaptation of the short story by Michael Swanwick about refugees in a dystopian future.
“We have been wanting to work with both Justin and Jeremy and are so happy to have them come together on this project,” said Gaumont International Television CEO Katie O’Connell.
“The award-winning short story really captivated all of us with its transcendent themes. WGN has been so impressive with their early slate and they are the perfect partner for us.”
