The two-time Oscar winner is teaming with Servant creator Tony Basgallop, who created The Consultant and will serve as showrunner. "The Consultant explores the sinister relationship between boss and employee, asking how far we will go to get ahead, and to survive," according to Deadline. "It is inspired by Bentley Little’s 2015 novel, a satire that is centered around Mr. Patoff (Waltz), a bow-tie wearing consultant who comes to the rescue of CompWare after a prominent merger falls through and soon seemingly starts running the company." Last year, Waltz was nominated for an Emmy for the Quibi series Most Dangerous Game. He has also signed on to play former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Paramount Television's Reagan & Gorbachev limited series.
