Starz is developing the scripted drama “WonderWorld,” about a Reagan era-FBI pornography sting, with Owen Wilson executive producing.

The project, which also comes from Rene Balcer, Fred Berner, and Regina Lee, is inspired by one of the biggest undercover operations in FBI history. It follows two straight-arrow FBI agents as they infiltrate the violent Mob-controlled porn industry of the 1980s.

Wilson is represented by UTA and attorney Bob Wallerstein of Hirsch Wallerstein, Balcer by UTA and attorney Don Walerstein of Rohner Walerstein, and Berner by Verve and attorney Jeanne Newman.
