The long-developing GoodFellas television series has found a place to lay low and keep its nose clean for awhile. How fitting that it’s been picked by AMC, basic cable‘s new home for awesome gore and violence. The TV series based off Martin Scorsese’s classic film will be produced by Scorsese and the film’s original producer Irwin Winkler. Plot details haven’t been revealed yet, but earlier pitches saw the action following Henry Hill while in the witness protection program. We’ll let you know when Sopranos supporting players are cast.

I  fear for AMC on this one. If they try to mess with the show’s production budget like they have with The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, it’s likely they’ll end up with their hands chopped off. Or in a shallow grave if they’re lucky. (Deadline)

‘Goodfellas’ TV Series Will Be A Prequel, Martin Scorsese-y http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/goodfellas-tv-series-will-be-a-prequel-martin-scorsese-y/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/goodfellas-tv-series-will-be-a-prequel-martin-scorsese-y/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The closest I ever want to get to Martin Scorsese's face. Got some more info about that Goodfellas television series that's being made for $ome rea$on. It's now reported that Martin Scorsese will be involved in some way or another. It seems like producers got worried by the backlash to the news and decided they needed Martin's stamp on this. Whether he'll write, produce, direct, or show up on set to sign-out walkie talkies is unclear at this point. Also of note is that the show will be a prequel to the classic film, focusing on Henry Hill's childhood years. So it will be like "Brooklyn Bridge" but instead of whimsical accounts of playing stickball on Front Street and Marion Ross, it will be whimsical accounts of using a broomstick to bash in the face of the neighborhood chooch. Ahhh, the old neighborhood. (via /Film)
