CANNES, France (AP) - Oliver Stone has agreed to direct his first scripted project for television, a TV series about the Guantanamo Bay detention center.

Weinstein Television announced Monday at the Cannes Film Festival that it has acquired “Guantanamo,” a series that plans to peer into “the darkest corners” of the detention center established to house suspected Islamic militants.

Stone plans to direct the entire first season of the show, which was created by Daniel Voll.

Weinstein TV says the series will follow the lives of detainees, soldiers, judges, lawyers, journalists and others at Guantanamo Bay.

The detention camp gained notoriety for the interrogation techniques used on prisoners. It currently houses 41 detainees.
