Deadline is exclusively reporting that Paramount+ is in the early stages of developing a TV series inspired by the 1999 thriller Arlington Road.
Set in Reston, Virginia, the film follows college professor and widow Michael Faraday, whose FBI agent wife was killed by an extremist group and has been raising their son, Grant, alone since her death. Somewhat of a specialist in regards to the culture of extremists and American terrorism, Michael becomes increasingly suspicious of his new all-American neighbours Oliver and Cheryl Lang, who he encounters after taking their son Brady to the hospital after a fireworks accident, and believes that they’re involved in terrorism and becomes obsessed in foiling their plot.
The 1999 film starred Jeff Bridges, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Hope Davis, Robert Gossett, Spencer Treat Clark, Mason Gamble, Stanley Anderson and Jordan Craig (I also reviewed the film previously, which you can read here).
The films director, Mark Pellington, is also involved with the potential series and is currently attached to direct it as well as serve as executive producer. Seth Fisher is writing the TV series adaptation and will also serve as executive producer. CBS Studios and Village Roadshow Television are co-producing.
