Mark Ruffalo’s limited series I Know This Much Is True acquired by HBO


HBO has given the thumbs-up for the Mark Ruffalo limited series, I Know This Much Is True.

Mark Ruffalo is quite the busy man and with this being the year of all things Avengers, it appears he has just enough time to have his limited series greenlit by HBO, according to Deadline. The series will be six episodes and is based on the best-selling book, I Know This Much Is True, by Wally Lamb.

Ruffalo will play a dual role and will also an executive producer on the project working alongside The Place Beyond the Pines’ Derek Cianfrance. The project was expedited by HBO last fall and is finally coming together with Ruffalo on board.

I Know This Much Is True is written, directed, and executive produced by Cianfrance and follows the story of identical twins, Dominick and Thomas Birdsey (both characters to be played by Mark Ruffalo) and their parallel lives.

Set in 20th century America, the series will examine forgiveness, sacrifice, and betrayal, and sure sounds like a very riveting piece of drama that will only be made better by Ruffalo’s dual role. Ruffalo will be the executive producer along with Lamb, Ben Browning and Glen Basner of FilmNation Entertainment, and Gregg Fienberg and Anya Epstein.

We best know Mark Ruffalo as the infamous Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is a three-time Oscar nominee, Tony Award nominee, and Emmy nominee. He was the executive producer on HBO’s The Normal Heart which went on to win an Emmy for Outstanding TV Movie.
