Kathryn Bigelow, nominated for an Oscar for her war drama The Hurt Locker, will head to HBO for her next directing project, the pilot of The Miraculous Year. The series, which she will also executive-produce, will offer a raw look at the miraculous success the director has achieved in the past year as she goes up against her high-profile ex-husband for the Best Director Academy Award!! Just kidding, it’s about a family who lives in New York, from the perspective of a “self-destructive Broadway composer.”
The script is by John Logan, who wrote The Aviator, Gladiator and Any Given Sunday. Filming is set to begin later this spring.
