*Fifteen years after Laurence Fishburne starred as Walter Mosley‘s Socrates Fortlow in the HBO movie “Always Outnumbered,” written by Mosley and directed by Michael Apted, the actor-producer is revisiting the character for HBO, this time on the series side.

The pay cable network is developing “The Right Mistake,” a drama series from Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy Prods and Fox Television Studios, according to Deadline.com.

It is based on the series of novels by Mosley featuring Fortlow: an ex-convict who seeks redemption — while battling inner demons and external forces — after serving 27 years in prison. The books include Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned; Walkin’ The Dog and The Right Mistake.

Mosley and Patrick Charles are co-writing the series adaptation, with Fishburne attached to star.

On the broadcast network side, Cinema Gypsy is developing “Black-ish,” a single-camera comedy starring Anthony Anderson and written by Kenya Barris for ABC.
