NBC is back in the Jerry Bruckheimer business.
The network is developing a new drama from Bruckheimer’s Warner Bros. TV-based production company, a person familiar with the deal confirmed. The hour, to be written by Jennifer Johnson ("Cold Case"), revolves around a fugitive tracking unit.
Bruckheimer, Johnson and Jonathan Littman will serve as executive producers.
KristieAnne Reed, who like Littman is an exec at Bruckheimer Television, will serve as co-exec producer.
The last time NBC and Bruckheimer collaborated on a series was 2005’s short-lived "E-Ring."
News of the untitled Johnson project was first reported by Variety, which said NBC has made a put pilot commitment to the potential series.
