A+E Networks has announced that Sylvester Stallone is teaming with History for a new drama series entitled The Tenderloin, which will deal with dirty cops in early 20th century New York City.
According to THR, Stallone will serve as executive producer on the drama as well as directing multiple episodes of the show, which is being written by Stephan Kay (Sons of Anarchy, The Shield), who previously worked with Sly on his Get Carter remake.
The series will follow Charles Becker, a real life New York Police Department officer from the early 1900s “who ran the NYPD’s Strong-Arm Squad tasked with battling ethnic gangs in the titular neighborhood of Manhattan — and later was sentenced to death for murder.”
The Tenderloin will be produced by Stallone’s Balboa Productions outfit, which recently announced the dark superhero thriller Samaritan. Stallone meanwhile will next be seen on screen in Rambo V: Last Blood, and is also attached to reprise his role as Barney Ross in The Expendables 4.
