Noah Hawley and The Russo Brothers to Executive Produce FX Crime Drama ‘THE MASTERMINDS’

July 14, 2017

The Russo brothers

FX is currently developing an upcoming crime drama THE MASTERMINDS with Captain America: Civil War directing duos Joe and Anthony Russo, Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley and The Walking Dead executive producer Robert Kirkman.

The series is based on the investigative stories of Atavist Magazine co-founder and CEO Evan Ratliff. It centers on the true story of Paul Le Roux, a computer programmer and criminal cartel boss who became a DEA informant. The series has been compared to the wildly popular Making a Murderer in that the story, in this case of an elusive criminal kingpin, unfolds slowly in installments.

The Russo brothers are set to direct the series and executive produce. Hawley will executive produce through his 26 Keys banner, which is based at FX Productions.

Atavist is a multimedia publishing platform focused on long-form nonfiction stories.
