Elton John and hubby David Furnish are said to be collaborating with True Blood creator Alan Ball to produce a pilot for an HBO series called Virtuoso, set in 1790s Vienna.

Showbiz 411 reports that the show is about "young musicians in an elite academy" run by Antonio Salieri, whom people may remember as Mozart's nemesis in the movie Amadeus. It's described as having "lots of music, ruffled shirts and sex of all kinds."
