'Goodfellas' TV show in the works

A TV series based on the film Goodfellas is reportedly in the works. Warner Bros TV is in the lead position to produce the show, reports Deadline. Screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi, who wrote the original 1990 Martin Scorsese movie, is expected to pen the pilot.

Irwin Winkler, a producer of the film, is also rumoured to be involved in the TV spinoff. There is still no word on whether Scorsese will be associated with the project.

Scorsese's Goodfellas was nominated for the 'Best Picture' Oscar in 1991. Co-star Joe Pesci won the Oscar for 'Best Actor In A Supporting Role' for his performance as mobster Tommy DeVito.
