STARZ TEAMS UP WITH CHRIS COLLINS, KEN FINK, AND DAN CHAON TO DEVELOP NEW HOUR-LONG SCRIPTED DRAMA SERIES "MOST WANTED"

Beverly Hills, Calif. - October 24, 2013- Starz Managing Director, Carmi Zlotnik, announced today that STARZ has put into development a new hour-long scripted drama, "Most Wanted," from Chris Collins, Ken Fink and Dan Chaon. Set in the Great Plains during the 1970s, "Most Wanted" traces the rise and demise of a talented and prolific bank robber, Nate Daniels, who finds himself on a collision course with his family and crew as he becomes one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted.

"This period in American history was an incredibly rich and complex time, and we saw 'Most Wanted' as an opportunity to bring these stories to life," said Zlotnik. "We are excited to give this project the premium cable platform and to be in business with Chris, Ken and Dan."

Chris Collins will serve as Executive Producer and showrunner along with Executive Producer Ken Fink and Co-Executive Producer Dan Chaon. Collins is currently an Executive Producer on FX's "Sons of Anarchy" and his other credits include Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the STARZ television series, "Crash," the award-winning documentary Disarm, and HBO's critically acclaimed series, "The Wire," for which he won a WGA Award and was nominated for another. He currently has series in development at HBO, TNT and a mini-series at SPIKE.

Ken Fink began his career directing numerous award-winning documentaries on subjects as diverse as West Virginia coal miners and serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer before turning full time to dramatic filmmaking. His career in television includes award-winning shows such as "Homicide: Life in the Streets" and "Oz." He was Executive Producer and directed over fifty episodes of "CSI: Las Vegas." He is a graduate of the NYU Film School and is a four-time Emmy(R) nominee.

Dan Chaon is the author of five works of fiction, including the national bestseller "Await Your Reply" and "Among the Missing," which was a finalist for the National Book Award. His work has appeared in many journals and anthologies, including "Best American Short Stories," "The O. Henry Prize Stories," and "I Found This Funny," edited by Judd Apatow.

Collins and Fink are represented by UTA.

Chaon is represented by Literary Agent Noah Lukeman at Lukeman Literary Management, Ltd. and attorney Stuart Rosenthal at Bloom, Hergott, Diemer & Cook.
