The Departed Headed To TV


It looks like we’re not only getting a ‘Training Day’ TV series, but now cop corruption will show up for ‘The Departed’ too.

Speaking with Collider at DICE 2016, producer Roy Lee says the plan is to take the Infernal Affairs & Departed basic concept and set it somewhere else:

“The Departed as a concept is amazing. That’s what attracted me to the story, the two moles working on either side of the law, and translating that idea into other settings with new characters, like how Fargo has taken the feel of the Coen Brother’s film. We were having discussions about making Infernal Affairs a television series. A different city, so it’s not anything like The Departed, but essentially The Departed as a TV series.”
