Oliver StoneAcademy Award winner Oliver Stone is coming to television -- again.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the acclaimed filmmaker and writer Bruce Wagner have signed a development deal with Epix. The duo's first project is the one-hour scripted drama 'Still Holding,' based on Wagner's novel of the same name.

Epix is a premium TV service run by Viacom, Lionsgate and MGM.

Epix said 'Still Holding' will explore "the colliding worlds of three disparate people in Los Angeles, and the violent consequences of love and betrayal, of holding on and letting go." Stone and Wagner will serve as executive producers on the series. They previously worked together on the 1993 ABC mini-series 'Wild Palms.'

"I'm interested in the possibilities in television," Stone told the Hollywood Reporter. "When a company like Epix comes along, it's a chance to break new ground. They want to make their mark. They want to entertain and provoke; they don't want their drama or comedy watered down."

Epix was unclear about a launch date for the series. Stone's next TV project is Showtime's 'The Secret History of America,' which is slated to air later this year.
