New HBO Series Based on Mosley's Novels

A new HBO series, currently in production and starring Laurence Fishburne, will be based on the "Socrates Fortlow" novels by crime fiction author Walter Mosley (who visits UAlbany today, 2/4). Fishburne reprises his role as Fortlow, an ex-con trying to redeem himself, in an HBO film back in 1998.

From Variety, Nov. 2013: Laurence Fishburne is joining forces with HBO to bring back to life character Socrates Fortlow from the net’s 1998 pic “Always Outnumbered” — this time, as a TV series.
