“Character-driven?” Whenever we hear that label used on a
cop show procedural we think of the Helen Mirren UK version of PRIME SUSPECT. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this could be at least half as good?
Fox Buys Detective Drama From Writer Chris Levinson And Chernin Entertainment – by Nellie Andreeva (Deadline.Com)
Fox has made a premium script deal for a character-driven cop-drama from Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. Written by Chris Levinson (Touch), the untitled project centers on a major crimes detective who starts slowly losing his memory. Faced with the prospect of losing his career and family, the cop ends up putting his entire life under surveillance. What begins as an effort to restore missing pieces of his waking hours becomes a 24/7 window into a world where nothing is ever as it appears. WME-repped Levinson executive produces with Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope. The project stems from a two-script deal Levinson inked with Chernin Entertainment last year. She most recently served as a co-executive producer on the Chernin/20th TV drama series for Fox Touch. Her series credits also include Law & Order and Lone Star.
