GRB Entertainment is all set to ?Rumble?

MUMBAI: Continuing its move into the scripted world of dramatic series, GRB Entertainment has signed a deal with screenwriter John Milius for a new one-hour dramatic series entitled Rumble.

Rumble is loosely based on the life and bestselling book of Chuck Zito, the former president of the New York City Hells Angels who rose to become one of the most famous Hells Angels in their history. Zito will serve as executive producer and story consultant for the series.

GRB Entertainment plans to take the project out in the next 2-3 months and is offering the series at next week's television event MIPTV in Cannes, France. It is looking to secure a co-production deal with a European partner.
Milius says, "I have always been fascinated with motorcycle gangs having grown up around them and if I had not been a surfer, I would have been a biker. The biker image is shrouded with mystery, fear, and admiration and the outlaw biker gang is an authentic international counter culture that has lasted a long, long time. This series will tell all.?

Set in the volatile streets of New York City, Rumble follows the life of Johnny Ringo, a tough, take-no prisoners, brute of a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Loosely based on a true story, this gritty series chronicles Ringo's reign as he assumes the presidency of the largest and most ruthless biker gang in the world.

Milius created and served as the executive producer on HBO's series Rome.
