Hulu launches The Devil in White City series


Hulu has dropped The Devil In the White City

, the long-in development series about America’s first serial killer. The most recent incarnation was set up at Hulu as a limited series, but after losing leading man Keanu Reeves (John Wick: Chapter 4) and director Todd Field (Tar) last year, it seems that the streaming service has scrapped The Devil in the White City.TheDevil in the White City

tells the story of Daniel H. Burnham, “ a visionary architect who sets out to mark history with the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, and Dr. H. Holmes, America’s first modern serial killer and the man behind the notorious “Murder Castle” that was built in the shadow of the Fair.” THR’s report states that producers had been nearing deals with Jeremy Allen White (The Bear) and Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Dumbledore) to star in the series and were looking at Matt Ross (Captain Fantastic) to direct when Hulu pulled the plug. The Devil In the White City is not dead. ABC Signature will be selling the series to other outlets. While sources say that White, Law, and Ross are still in play, it’s not clear if those deals will close if the project doesn’t find a new home.Related

The Devil In the White City would instead be developed as an eight-episode limited series in 2019. As executive producers, Martin Scorsese & Leonardo DiCaprio were still on board. Sam Shaw was to write and run the show. He would have also executive produced with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, Rick Yorn and Jennifer Davisson. I feel like this project has been on my mind for almost the entire time it’s been developing. While I was most excited to see it as a Scorsese/DiCaprio film, I quickly accepted the idea of a series. Given how long it’s been in development, I can only hope that The Devil in the White City

finds a new home following its exit from Hulu.
