This TV adaptation of Get Shorty is coming to EPIX
Based on the 1995 movie starring John Travolta, Danny DeVito, Gene Hackman and Rene Russo.
It sounds like Romano is still in negotiations. What I have for plot so far is this:
Written by Davey Holmes, Get Shorty centers on Miles Daly (O’Dowd), who works as muscle for a murderous crime ring in Nevada. For the sake of his daughter, he attempts to change professions and become a movie producer, laundering money through a Hollywood film. But instead of leaving the criminal world behind, he accidentally brings it with him to Los Angeles. Romano would play Rick, a washed up producer of low quality films who becomes Miles’ partner and guide through the maze of Hollywood. (Deadline Hollywood).
