TV drama about iconic NYC deli Russ & Daughters in development

Start spreading the news. Russ & Daughters — the iconic Lower East Side Jewish deli — might get a television treatment, according to a report. Time Studios has signed a deal with Niki Russ Federman and Josh Russ Tupper, the family business’ fourth-generation owners, to shop a scripted drama about the deli’s history, Deadline reported. Joel Russ immigrated from Poland in 1907, and after first selling herring out of a barrel, opened shop in 1914. The deli moved in 1920 to its current East Houston location, where it’s known for its bagels and lox — as well as its long weekend lines. “The story of Russ & Daughters — and the constellation of characters that make up our delicious world — spans over a century and is about perseverance, family, community and connection,” Federman and Tupper said in a joint statement. Russ & Daughters didn’t immediately return a message.
