``The series will be called "Paper," and is based on an essay published in the New Yorker in 2010 titled "Pay Up." That story took a critical look at the life of an ex-con who owns a debt collection agency in Buffalo that works older payday loans. A pervasive theme in the piece is the quality of the accounts -- or "paper" -- being worked by his collection agency, which is clearly near the bottom rung of the ARM world. It juxtaposed the tactics and conditions at his agency with those of a top-tier debt collection agency working fresh paper.''
