HBO to film miniseries about Chateau Marmont

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA Chateau Marmont, legendary as a favorite hangout of Hollywood stars for generations, will be the focal point of an upcoming miniseries to air on cable network HBO.

The miniseries will be loosely based on the book “Life at the Marmont,” written by former hotel co-owner Raymond Sarlot, and will be produced by Aaron Sorkin and John Krasinski. Sorkin is the write behind last year’s “The Social Network,” while Krasinski is best known for his role as Jim Halpert on the U.S. version of “The Office.” Andre Balazs, who currently owns the hotel, is also involved in the project.

Krasinski is expected to play a role in the as-yet-untitled miniseries, which will tell the interconnected stories of the people who frequented the famed Hollywood landmark over several generations, according to
