Jodie Foster And Showtime Team For Mob Drama 'Angie's Body'

It looks like Jodie Foster wasn't kidding when she said she was looking at cable TV. According to Deadline, Foster will direct and produce a mob drama for Showtime.

The project, "Angie's Body," will be written by Rob Fresco and follows a woman who runs her family's crime syndicate. Foster and Fresco will executive produce the project.

"I think I may spend some time on cable," Foster told the Associated Press in July.

Foster's previous TV producer credit is on "The Baby Dance," a TV movie. The veteran actress, who has numerous small screen acting credits, also directed an episode of "Tales from the Darkside."

Foster said cable is a good place for her craft. "What I do are personal stories and, in some ways, usually involve family and they have equal amounts of comedy and drama, sometimes an absurdist twist, and they're very verbal," she told the AP. "And I like constructing complex characters and hopefully seeing this sort of tapestry of how they interact with each other over time evolve. Well, TV's the place for that."
