Reeves will be teaming up with Roland Emmerich for the new show, who directed films "Independence Day" and "2012."
The series will follow a man who enters a thrilling virtual reality world called New Angeles.
He then "adopts a new identity, becoming the man he was always destined to be, and in the process, unlocking the keys to a mystery that has real-world consequences for him and his family".
Roland will direct and executive produce the new series, while comic book writer Gregg Hurwitz will write the script for the project, as well as executive produce. The show hasn't been picked up by a network as of yet, but the collection of the three Hollywood powers should be enough for a major network to pose interest in it soon enough.
David Ellender of Slingshot Global Media, the company making the show, said: "We're thrilled to have Roland and Keanu on board for a project of this magnitude. Roland's masterful vision for this is extraordinary and Keanu's action work behind and in front of the camera speaks for itself."
Reeves, who stars in the upcoming film "John Wick," plays an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters who have taken everything from him. The first trailer for the film started popping up on the web earlier today, and looks to feature plenty of action intertwined with sarcastic dialogue.
