Deadline reports that Relativity Television is working with Georgeville Television and Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) to make a TV series based on Cooper's 2011 movie Limitless. Cooper starred in and executive produced that movie. He will executive produce the TV series, along with the film's producers Leslie Dixon and Scott Kroopf. Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh is expected to make an announcement at the MIPCOM market in Cannes.
He said: "Limitless is the perfect example of Relativity's multiplatform approach to creating quality content."
Georgeville TV CEO Marc Rosen added: "The film has an organic natural extension into a compelling and sophisticated one-hour drama that is both a thrill-ride and a social commentary."
The film also starred Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish. It followed an unsuccessful writer who is transformed by a "smart drug" that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His new abilities attract "shadowy forces" that threaten his life. It opened at #1 and earned over $160 million worldwide, along with over two million copies sold on home video.
