Director Lenny Abrahamson at the European Premiere of Frank in

Irish director Lenny Abrahamson, Oscar nominated this year for his acclaimed film Room, will switch to TV for his next big project.

The 49-year-old Dubliner will direct and executive produce a new series for Hulu called Chance, which will star Hugh Laurie, beloved for his role in the old Fox medical drama House. Hulu execs have given the go-ahead for a two season, 20 episode run.

According to Variety, “Chance is described as a provocative psychological thriller that focuses on a forensic neuro-psychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness.”

The show will debut sometime this year.
