Although it hasn't been given a title as of yet, it has been revealed that broadcaster CBS are behind the new show.
It will be interesting to see just how many similarities there are between the work place comedy's on-screen boss and Steiner, and whether or not they choose to make the character quite as x-rated as the Haas boss.
His management style is perhaps more likened to David Brent's arch nemesis Neil Godwin in the UK version of the 'The Office', in that he takes no messing. However, he's clearly a lot funnier than Godwin, hence why CBS want to make a whole show based on him.
When asked about a potential post-F1 career in acting, Steiner told the Independent earlier this year that he prefers to portray his authentic self.
“I’m not good at acting, I just do my job and if they film it all that’s fine. It’s all very transparent," he said. "We sometimes make a meal of things but very rarely. It’s real. I think people like the honesty, too.”
