Scoop: Julianne Moore Eyes Starring Role in HBO's Mad Men-Era Drama Series

In what would mark her first full-time foray into series television, Julianne Moore is developing an HBO drama with frequent collaborator Todd Haynes that would find her playing a former heroin addict who becomes a private eye in 1950s Manhattan.

The project, titled Dope, is based on the Sara Gran novel of the same name. (Gran also penned the pilot script.)

Haynes, who teamed with Moore in Far From Heaven and Safe, would direct the pilot and serve as a producer alongside his Mildred Pierce cohorts John Wells and Christine Vachon.

Allow me to be the first to say — this thing sounds dope.
