Shantaram, based on the Gregory David Roberts 2003 novel, focuses on Hunnam’s character Lin, a man looking to get lost in the city of Bombay while on the run from an Australian prison. Cut off from family and friends, Lin finds a new life in the slums, bars, and underworld of India.

Shantaram‘s first season will span 10 episodes and will see Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle) pen the scripts and executive-produce with Justin Kurzel (Assassin’s Creed), who is set to direct the first two episodes. Shantaram‘s first season will span 10 installments.

The project will mark Hunnam’s first series-regular TV role since wrapping Sons of Anarchy in 2014
