The actor is developing an eight-part Netflix series on the scandal that took down President Richard Nixon, his representative told CNNMoney Friday. The news was reported earlier by Variety and Deadline.

Clooney and his production company, Smokehouse Pictures, are working with "Bridge of Spies" writer Matt Charman on the project.

Netflix did not comment.

The Nixon years are also getting the Hollywood treatment from Steven Spielberg.

"The Post," a Spielberg movie starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, hits theaters later this month. The film looks at how Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham and editor Ben Bradlee handled the publication of the Pentagon Papers.
