Actor and director George Clooney is developing an eight-part series for Netflix on the Watergate scandal that brought down President Nixon.

Deadline Hollywood reported Friday that "Bridge of Spies" movie writer Matt Charman is partnering with Clooney for the series which will use each episode to focus on a different element of the Watergate controversy.

The report did not include a release date for the series.

The investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election has drawn parallels to Nixon and his involvement in the Watergate scandal.
