Michael Shannon has joined Amazon and Weinstein Company’s untitled drama series from David O. Russell. Shannon joins the previously announced Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.

Amazon has committed to two eight-episode seasons of the series, which will be produced by Russell, Alexandra Milchan, and Scott Lambert, who developed the project with Russell. Harvey Weinstein, David Glasser and Annapurna’s Megan Ellison executive produce.

The series is described as a mafia crime series, but no other details are known. Shannon’s role is neither known either.

Production is expected to begin later this year in New York.

Shannon has quite a busy schedule: Fox Searchlight and Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water and The Current War, where he plays George Westinghouse. He’s currently filming HBO Films adaption Fahrenheit 451 opposite Michael B. Jordan. He is also set to star in Warner Bros. film Horse Soldiers next year and Paramount network’s Waco mini-series.
