The Devil in the White City is coming to Hulu as a television series that will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, the dynamic duo that was previously attached to a movie adaptation.

For years, people have been trying to find a way to adapt Erik Larson’s 2003 book, Entertainment Weekly reported, which tells the story of Dr. H. H. Holmes, a serial killer and the man behind the “Murder Castle” at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. Tom Cruise first acquired the rights to the book in 2003, at which time DiCaprio said he was developing his own version of the Holmes case.

When DiCaprio and Scorsese were developing it as a film, the Academy Award-winning actor was set to play Holmes, though it’s unclear if he’ll star in the series or simply produce.
