LOS ANGELES — Owen Wilson is developing an hour-long Reagan-era porn drama for the Starz network.

“WonderWorld” follows two straight-arrow FBI agents as they infiltrate the "Mob-controlled porn industry" of the 1980s, putting themselves and their families in danger, the premium network announced today.

Wilson, who co-wrote “Bottle Rocket” and “The Royal Tenenbaums,” has signed on as executive producer of the project, alongside Rene Balcer,  Fred Berner and Regina Lee.

“Law & Order: Criminal Intent” co-creator and Emmy-winner Balcer will serve as showrunner.

“WonderWorld” is one of several period crime dramas in various stages of development at networks right now, such as Ed Burns’ “Public Morals” project at TNT, Entertainment Weekly reported today, suggesting the emergence of a trend.
