Continuing Montauk's transition from "a drinking town with a fishing problem" to the East End's most talked about destination, The Hollywood Reporter is, well, reporting that Ryan Murphy (the man behind Glee, American Horror Story, The New Normal, and the awesome Nip/Tuck) has sold a show to Fox tentatively called Montauk.
Described as "a family thriller with conspiracy element," the series will be penned and executive produced by the writer of the found-footage film Apollo 18 (terrible movie, BTW). THR notes that it's unclear if it'll have anything to do with the Montauk Project?"alleged to be a series of secret United States government projects conducted at Camp Hero...for the purpose of developing psychological warfare techniques and exotic research including time travel." No word on how prominently fedoras will be featured, either.
It's still early in development, but here's to hoping that, unlike another show set in the Hamptons, they actually decide to film in the area. Liars is long overdue for some time in the national spotlight.
