If you've ever watched Showtime for longer than three minutes, you've likely had one or both of the following thoughts: Masters of Sex is great. Also, why isn't there more Leonardo DiCaprio on this network? Thanks to the fact that people are really loving any books, shows, and movies about the slightly less-than-legal happenings of famed organized crime units right now, Showtime might finally land a full-on cosign from DiCaprio.

The network is linking up with DiCaprio and Ray Donovan scribe Brett Johnson for an untitled series centered on the relationship between the mafia and the FBI during the 1980s, according to the Hollywood Reporter. In addition to script duties, Johnson will also executive produce the potential series alongside DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson, and a slew of Ray Donovan alumni. DiCaprio previously landed a hefty documentary deal with Netflix, meaning DiCaprio's small screen takeover (2.0) is almost complete.

You're welcome, Showtime.
