an eight-episode series order to the upcoming Keanu Reeves-led limited drama titled The Devil in the White City, based on Erik Larson’s 2003 historical thriller novel. Reeves, who will also serve as an executive producer, has been attached to the project since early this year. The long-in-development project is currently targeting a 2024 debut, and is potentially set to begin filming sometime next year.

This marks the John Wick star’s first major U.S. TV project as the lead. Reeves recently voiced Bruce Wayne/Batman in DC League of Super-Pets and will next be seen reprising his iconic role in John Wick: Chapter 4.

The Devil in the White City centers around two characters at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893: Daniel H. Burnham, a brilliant and fastidious architect who’s racing to make his mark on the world; and Dr. Henry H. Holmes, a handsome and cunning doctor who’s secretly a serial killer that seduces, tortures, and mutilates young women in his own castle.

The series adaptation is being written and executive produced by Sam Shaw, who is also set as the showrunner. The project was first announced in 2019, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese serving as executive producers. Oscar nominated filmmaker Todd Field has also signed on to direct the first two episodes.

Executive producers are Rick Yorn, Sam Shaw, Jennifer Davisson, and Stacey Sher. It is a production by ABC Signature, Appian Way, and Paramount TV Studios.
