Verbatim - Chris Messina To Star In HBO Max Pilot

Chris Messina has been tapped as the lead in HBO Max pilot Verbatim, an anthology series from Brett Weiner (Honest Trailers), Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films, Left/Right Productions and The New York Times.

Created and directed by Weiner, Verbatim is based on his New York Times Op-Docs digital series. It tackles actual events with all dialogue taken from primary sources and presented verbatim. The pilot episode follows the story of the 2019 college admissions scandal.

Messina’s role has not been revealed; I hear he may be playing the scheme’s ringleader Rick Singer.
