Robert Downey Jr is making a TV drama about rehab, it has been reported.
Set in 1983, the drama will follow a rehab/therapeutic community of recovering alcoholics and drug-users in Venice Beach, as they battle their addictions at a rehab facility.
The as-yet-untitled programme is currently in development and it isn't yet known when it might air.
Robert, 49, battled substance abuse problems in the 90s, and spent time in both rehab and jail before turning his life around.
During one court appearance on drug charges in 1999, the star told a judge: "Taking drugs to me is like having a shotgun in my mouth with my finger on the trigger, and I like the taste of the gun metal."
