The forthcoming show, as cited by the outlet, is described as a "modern take on Watergate that Focuses on the untold stories and forgotten character of the scandal--from Nixon's bumbling, opportunistic subordinates, to the deranged zealots aiding and abetting their crimes, to the tragic whistleblowers who would eventually bring the whole rotten enterprise crashing down."

Roberts will also be the executive producer for the same under her banner Red Om Films along with co-executive producers Lisa Gillan and Marisa Yeres Gill.
