Scorsese's "Gangs of New York" TV Series

Thanks to the success of the new TV series "The Gilded Age", set in 19th century New York City, there is renewed interest in director Martin Scorsese directing the first two episodes of a TV adaptation of his feature "Gangs of New York" (2002), based on Herbert Asbury’s 1927 nonfiction book, following rival gangs of late-1800's New York City:

"This time and era of America’s history and heritage is rich with characters and stories that we could not fully explore in a two hour film," said Scorsese. 

"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."
