According to Variety, Hulu is developing a new series based on the book, “The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair That Changed America.” The show will simply be titled The Devil In The White City, and it’’l be executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, along with Stacey Sher, Rick Yorn, Emma Koskoff, and Jennifer Davisson.

It’s described as, “The Devil in the White City” tells true story of two men, an architect and a serial killer, whose fates were forever linked by The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893: Daniel H. Burnham, a brilliant and fastidious architect racing to mark his mark on the world and Henry H. Holmes, a handsome and cunning doctor who fashioned his own pharmaceutical “Murder Castle” on the fair grounds.”

DiCaprio bought the rights to the book back in 2010 when he planned to star in it for a movie, but unfortunately that film never happened. We’ll continue to keep you posted on the series moving forward as more details come about.
