Keanu Reeves is set to make his TV producing debut with an adaptation of book compilation Rain.
The Matrix actor will also star in the hour-long series, which will be based on Barry Eisler's bestselling book, according to Deadline.com.
Rain will centre on a half-Japanese, half-American assassin, who has the ability to make his targets' deaths look like they were caused by natural causes.
Keanu says, "As a huge fan of Barry's work, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to bring his iconic character and incredible world to life."
