The drama is based on a story developed by Medium and Moonlighting Emmy nominee Glenn Gordon Caron, who penned the script for the pilot. Set in the 1960s, The Middle Man explores the unique relationship between Rudy MacAteer, an FBI agent charged with taking down the Italian-American mafia, and his confidential informant, Irish-American gangster Mickey Flood. As Rudy finds himself forced to bend the laws he pledged to enforce, the duo?s actions inadvertently give rise to the Irish-American mob in this timeless Boston crime saga. -- Based on what he's accomplished between Good Will Hunting, Argo and The Town, I have little doubt this is likely to be a hit.
