Set to show on American network ABC (we're sure it'll find its way over here, too), Leo's Appian Way Productions has, according to Variety, begun developing a show based on a Finnish concept called Black Widows.

Written by Mikko Polla and Roope Lehtinen. The original series follows three wives and best friends trapped in abusive marriages to husbands who all work at the same company. When all three husbands die in a mysterious explosion during a group vacation, the wives are pulled into a spiral of lies and crime.

Appian Way (a name that comes from a strategically important Roman road that connected the southeast of Italy... fyi) has previously produced series including The Right Stuff at NatGeo, which chronicles the lives of the original Mercury 7 astronauts, as well as films like The Revenant and Shutter Island, but this is the first drama series from the company.

On top of all that, Leo is busy with a number of upcoming acting projects, including biopics of Leonardo Da Vinci and Theodore Roosevelt, along with a lead in a new true-crime Scorsese epic.

We hope you're getting enough sleep, Leo.
