A Gangs of New York TV adaptation will reportedly be pitched around to both premium and streaming networks by Miramax Television 

The first two episodes of the series will be directed by Martin Scorsese, who also produced the 2002 Oscar-nominated film version of Gangs of New York. 

Additionally contributing as a writer to the project is playwright and television writer Brett Leonard. In November, purchasers will be introduced to the show. 

The Gangs of New York, a non-fiction book written by Herbert Asbury in 1927, served as the basis for both the future television series and the 2002 movie 

According to numerous reports, neither the events of the 2002 movie nor any of the roles played by Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, or Cameron Diaz will be followed in the series. 

In addition to directing the series, Scorsese will also serve as executive producer alongside Leonard, Rick Yorn, and Chris Donnelly. 

Scorsese was working on a different Gangs of New York television adaptation in 2013. 

The criminality and gangs that occurred in other places like Chicago and New Orleans during the 1800s would have been covered in that series 

A television series allows us the time and creative freedom to bring this colorful world, and all the implications it had and still does on our society, to life 

Scorsese is known for producing timeless films like The Wolf of Wall Street, Casino, Goodfellas, and Taxi Driver
