The flow of actors better known for their big screen work to TV continues apace. Now, we can add Robert De Niro to the list as he's aboard to star in and produce Netflix conspiracy thriller Zero Day.

Eric Newman, who produced Narcos among many other things, created the show, while Jackie's Noah Oppenheim will write and run it. Lesli Linka Glatter is aboard to direct.

Here's the somewhat opaque logline… "Zero Day asks the question on everyone’s mind –– how do we find truth in a world in crisis, one seemingly being torn apart by forces outside our control? And in an era rife with conspiracy theory and subterfuge, how much of those forces are products of our own doing, perhaps even of our own imagining?"

I am a lifelong fan of Robert De Niro," says Newman. "To have him as a producing partner and star in this show is beyond my wildest dreams. And Lesli Linka Glatter has directed so many of my favorite episodes of television; she was our clear first choice to direct this show. I am grateful to Netflix for their continued faith and support and thrilled to be in business with the amazing creative team of Noah, Lesli, and Jonathan on this timely (and terrifying) series."
