Robert De Niro To Star In Crime Drama Series ‘Bobby Meritorious’ In The Works At Paramount+

The Raging Bull and Taxi Driver star is to lead Bobby Meritorious, an original series that comes from Paramount Television Studios. Paramount made the commitment to develop the project after winning out a competitive situation.

It marks De Niro’s second TV project to emerge in a matter of weeks after conspiracy thriller Zero Day, from Eric Newman, landed a limited series order at Netflix.

The series is set amongst the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which is a sovereign kingdom with seemingly unlimited power and scope. But now an informant in SDNY’s biggest case, Avery “The Sage” Accomando is poised to tear this storied institution apart. Only one man can stop him, a fabled ex-cop-turned prosecutor affectionately known as Bobby Meritorious, played by De Niro. The battle between these two giants is a fight for justice itself.

De Niro will also exec produce alongside his producing partner Jane Rosenthal and Berry Welsh, who works at the pair’s Tribeca Productions. Peter Gethers will also exec produce alongside Preet Bahara, who was the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York between 2009 and 2017.

Earlier this month, Netflix ordered Zero Day, which was De Niro’s first series regular television role. The series, from Eric Newman, Noah Oppenheim and Michael S. Schmidt, is being directed by Leslie Linka Glatter and asks how do we find truth in a world in crisis, one seemingly being torn apart by forces outside our control?

On the film side, upcoming pictures include Wise Guys for director Barry Levinson and Killers of the Flower Moon, which is his tenth collaboration with Martin Scorsese.
