Waititi will direct the series from his own screenplay, which is supposedly a Hollywood satire based on the Rick Spears novel of the same name. Law will play the title character.

Spears’ graphic novel followed producer Nathan T. Rex, whose career spirals downhill as he attempts to resurrect his career by enlisting the aid of serial-killer-turned-murder-consultant Darwin, his assistant Igor, narcotics from Doctor Love, and the lovely actress Coconut. T. Rex will do anything to keep his career from imploding, which is bad news for everyone.

Law can be seen in HBO’s The New Pope and the Blake Lively actioner The Rhythm Section.

Waititi recently won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on JoJo Rabbit. He is also prepping Thor: Love and Thunder for Marvel.
