“The Sopranos” creator David Chase is working on a new FX drama

While details are being kept under wraps, the project is said to be based on a previously unproduced script that Chase was working on and a new, contemporary shot by Fidell. FX Productions is producing the project, which THR notes already has a pilot commitment.

Fidell will also direct the series, with himself, Chase and Chase Films executive Nicole Lambert producing the project.

The project ultimately landed at FX, despite Chase recently signing a five-year first-look TV and film deal with Warner Bros. Discover in October 2021. Around the same time, Chase’s “Sopranos” prequel, “The Many Saints of Newark,” was released in theaters and on HBO Max.

Chase’s “The Sopranos” has become one of the most celebrated dramas on television and on HBO. The show ran for six seasons between 1999 and 2007. During its run, the series won 21 Primetime Emmy Awards, including two Outstanding Drama Series. Chase received three Emmy Awards for his work on Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series.

Since the show ended, Chase wrote and directed the 2012 film Not Fade Away, and co-wrote and produced the trailer for The Many Saints of Newark. At the same time, HBO announced that Chase was working on a miniseries about Hollywood’s golden years called “Dream Tape.” However, the show did not materialize.


As a sequel to “The Sopranos”, “The many Saints of Newark” was moderately received by critics, with a score of 72%. Rotten tomatoes. The film fell victim at the box office due to several factors, as it was released day after day in theaters and on HBO Max streaming, so many people did not rush out to watch the film in theaters. It only made $8 million domestically and $13 million worldwide.

comment Deadline In October 2021, then-head of WarnerMedia Studios and Networks, Ann Sarnoff, said they were “excited” about the results of “The Mandy Saints of Newark” and were discussing a new spinoff of “The Sopranos” with Chase. However, talk of the project seems to have died down. At the time, Sarnoff stated, “David and I are talking about a new series related to ‘The Sopranos’ on HBO Max.


Fidell’s series experience includes turning A Teacher at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival into a limited series drama for FX and Hulu in 2020. The series version starred Kate Mara, and Fidell directed several episodes and served as showrunner. His other works include ‘The Long Dumb Road’.
