The network has given a straight-to-series pickup for the drama set in the world of organic farming which also has Ed Harris in the cast ensemble.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "The One Percent" is moving forward with a straight-to-series order from Starz. The cable channel has picked up 10 episodes of the new drama which has Hilary Swank, Ed Helms and Ed Harris in the cast ensemble.

The new show is set in the world of organic farming and centers on Alfred Murphy (Helms), a member of a dysfunctional family who struggles to keep their farm when a bizarre twist of fate becomes a life-changing secret that will either save them or ruin them. Swank will play his wife Laura Murphy, while Harris is set to take the role of the family patriarch Nathaniel Cobb.

Inarritu, who won two Academy Awards for his works on "Babel", created the drama with his frequent collaborators Alexander Dinelaris Jr., Nicolas Giacobone and Armando Bo. They will also serve as executive producers. The Mexican filmmaker is additionally on board to direct the first two episodes to set the visual style of the show.

Starz has previously ordered Seth MacFarlane's comedy "Blunt Talk", starring Patrick Stewart, to series.
