OUTLIERS (HBO Max, New!) - Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios are set to team for an anthology series at the streaming service based on Malcolm Gladwell's bestselling book, which "will take a detailed look at why people are successful, what makes them successful and at what cost. Part historical drama, part biopic, each season will profile individuals through an unique lens, looking at the specific historical situation which led to their outsized imprint on society and what ultimately makes them an Outlier." Greg Walker is spearheading the project, which will focus on Dr. Anthony Fauci, lead member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, for its debut installment. Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Samie Kim Falvey will executive produce alongside Walker and Gladwell. (Deadline.com)
