Veteran actor Robert De Niro is taking on another ambitious role with the crazy true-life story of disgraced financier Bernie Madoff, in HBo’s latest gripping miniseries The Wizard of Lies.

Adapted from the non-fiction book of the same name by Diana B. Henriques, The Wizard of Lies charts Madoff’s fall from grace when it was discovered that his Wall Street investment firm Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC was in fact an elaborate and highly organised Ponzi scheme which defrauded investors out of $68 billion dollars.

In addition to De Niro, the series will also star Michelle Pfeiffer, Alessandro Nivola, Nathan Darrow and Hank Azaria.

The Wizard of Lies is undoubtedly one of this year’s most unmissable events and will premiere on HBO on May 20.
