The production company, which is teaming with Lionsgate Television, has also signed a deal to provide an untitled drama for HBO that will star Tucci as a fallen politician looking to rebuild his life and career after a scandal. The series will be written and co-produced by former 'Six Degrees' creator Stu Zicherman.

These are the first two television projects from Olive Productions, which was created two years ago by Buscemi, Tucci and actor/producer Wren Arthur. On the movies side, the company has about 15 projects underway, including 'The Hunter' (written and to be directed by Tucci) and 'The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas' (written and to be directed by Buscemi).
