Los Angeles [USA], Sept. 06 (ANI): Hollywood actor Chris Pine has found his next Television stint.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is attached to play politician Robert F. Kennedy in a limited series in the works at Hulu.

The untitled drama is based on Larry Tye's 2016 biography 'Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon'.

For the book, which charts Kennedy's political career from his start as an aide for Sen. Joseph McCarthy to his untimely death in 1968 during his presidential campaign, Tye interviewed those closest to Kennedy, including his widow and his sister, and also drew from unpublished memoirs and unreleased government files.

Kessler would be producing the series with Pine, Tye, James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett.

The project hails from Sony Pictures Television and Overbook Entertainment.

This is the second series Pine has attached himself with, as the actor is set to headline TNT drama 'One Day She'll Darken'. (ANI)
