‘Bonfire of the Vanities’ Series From Chuck Lorre in the Works at Amazon
Chuck Lorre is developing a limited series adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s “Bonfire of the Vanities” at Amazon, TheWrap has learned.
The series is described as a drama about ambition, racism, social class, politics and greed in 1980s New York City. In the novel, there were three main characters: bond trader Sherman McCoy, assistant district attorney Larry Kramer and journalist Peter Fallow.
Lorre, best known for his CBS sitcoms such as “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men,” recently branched out to partner with the burgeoning streaming networks, also selling pot comedy “Disjointed” to Netflix with Kathy Bates set to star.
Amazon, home of the Emmy-winning “Transparent,” recently debuted Woody Allen‘s first TV series, “Crisis in Six Acts,” and recently picked up a live-action reboot of “The Tick.”
