The actor with a home in New Rochelle just signed a deal with CBS to develop small screen projects, similar to the string of successes Mark Wahlberg has had on HBO with shows like Entourage and In Treatment.
But Morpheus is no stranger to developing his own projects too. His production company was responsible for the movie Akeelah and the Bee, a great film if you haven’t seen it already. Fishburne also executive produced HBO’s Miss Evers’ Boys and Always Outnumbered.
CBS lately has been coming out with all sorts of great new shows like The Mentalist, so I’m really curious to see what Fishburne will come up with.
