David Mamet Creating a 7 Deadly Sins Miniseries for FoxS

Playwright and screenwriter David Mamet (Wag The Dog, The Unit, Hoffa) is developing is turning Christianity's Seven Deadly Sins into a television miniseries. Color us intrigued.

Variety is reporting Mamet will use "the themes invoked by the seven deadly sins will serve as a backdrop of a series of interconnected stories the reflect on the human condition through Mamet's distinctive lens." Which means Pride, Greed, Gluttony, Wrath, Envy, Lust and Sloth will all get their own little special on Fox. Hiring Mamet actually has us pretty excited about the potential of this miniseries. Hopefully we'll be getting something a little more like Seven, and a lot less like The Passion of the Christ.
