This idea for s show sounds so amazing, I hope it actually gets made and is done right!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, author Michael Chabon and his wife, Ayelet Waldman, are working on a new series with HBO, tentatively entitled Hobgoblin.

The series centers on, are you ready for this?

A group of magicians and con men who use their skills at deception to battle Hitler and his forces during World War II.

How potentially amazing does that sound?

Chabon is no stranger to Hollywood, as he has writing credits on Spider-Man 2 as well as the upcoming movies John Carter of Mars, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Snow and the Seven.

Other than the rough synopsis above, not much more information was given, so I plan to keep a close eye on this one as it develops. I see a mash-up of Inglorious Basterds and The Illusionist.

What do you think?
