Chris Pine’s TV prospects continue to expand.

The actor, who is set to headline the TNT drama One Day She’ll Darken, is attached to play politician Robert F. Kennedy in a limited series in the works at Hulu, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

From Bloodline co-creator Todd E. Kessler, the untitled drama is based on Larry Tye’s 2016 biography Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon. For the book, which charts Kennedy’s political career from his start as an aide for Sen. Joseph McCarthy to his untimely death in 1968 during his presidential campaign, Tye interviewed those closest to Kennedy, including his widow and his sister, and also drew from unpublished memoirs and unreleased government files.

Kessler would exec produce with Pine, Tye, James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett. The project hails from Sony Pictures Television and Overbook Entertainment.
