“The Offer” will tell the story of Ruddy’s experience as a producer on “The Godfather” back in 1972. Paramount Plus has given the limited series a 10-episode order.

Nikki Toscano and Michael Toklin co-wrote and executive produce, with Toscano also serving as showrunner. Dexter Fletcher is attached to direct the first and last block of episodes in addition to executive producing the series along with Leslie Greif, Ruddy, and Teller. Paramount Television Studios will produce.

“The Offer” was first announced as being in the works at Paramount Plus when ViacomCBS revealed they were rebranding the streamer CBS All Access. Other shows announced since then include series adaptations of films like “The Italian Job” and “Love Story,” as well as multiple shows from Taylor Sheridan under his rich overall deal with ViacomCBS.
