‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Writer and Director Brett Ratner to Co-Create TV Series

The disgraced trader behind The Wolf of Wall Street is bringing his tales of stock market excess to TV.

Jordan Belfort, whose memoir formed the basis for Martin Scorsese’s film, is teaming up with director Brett Ratner to create a new small screen series about New York’s financiers in the 1980s.

The former broker will co-write the show and says of the project, “The idea was to come up with a show about that period with really interesting characters, and so my manager pitched the idea to Brett Ratner, who fell in love with it.”

Australian entrepreneur James Packer, who is financing the series, adds, “I respect Jordan for his perseverance. Like many others, he is a man that made a lot of mistakes but he isn’t hiding. Jordan worked hard to build his new career and this adventure is an important part of his journey.”
 
Belfort was played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the Oscar-nominated movie.
