Julianne Moore is developing a new television drama for cable network HBO.
The Oscar-nominated actress will star in the planned adaptation of 2006 novel Dope, according to TV Line.
Written by Sara Gran, the original book follows reformed drug addict and prostitute Josephine Flannigan as she is hired by a wealthy couple to find their heroin-addicted daughter.
Gran has also written the pilot script for the HBO adaptation, while Todd Haynes will direct and produce. Haynes previously teamed with Moore on 1995 film Safe and 2002's Far from Heaven.
The potential series will mark Moore's first regular television role. Her past television credits include an early role on CBS soap opera As The World Turns and a recurring part on 30 Rock.
Southland's John Wells and Mildred Pierce's Christine Vachon will also produce the Dope pilot.
