Moonlight and Veronica Mars producer Joel Silver is looking to return to TV.

The 56-year-old has secured rights to the Arthur T. Vanderbilt II novel, Fortune's Children: The Fall of the House of Vanderbilt, for a possible HBO series, Variety reports.

Silver, along with Jane Semel and Jim Solomon, will serve as executive producer. Solomon has also been tapped to write the script for the hour-long show, which will chronicle the rise and fall from prominence of the famous entrepreneurial clan in the mid-1900s.

No target premiere date has been set yet as the drama is currently at the script-development stage. - Joyce Eng
