NBC has given a put pilot order to “TriBeCa,” a family drama from Greg Berlanti and “Supergirl” showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner, TheWrap has learned.
Based on the Korean series “Sky Castle” from JTBC, the one-hour drama is described as a sophisticated family drama set in New York’s most expensive ZIP code. The series explores the inner lives of a group of families and the lengths they will go to ensure their children succeed, regardless of the cost.
A put pilot commitment means that the network has agreed to air the pilot, but does not guarantee the project will go to series. If the network chooses not to air the pilot, it will owe a financial penalty to the studio.
Queller and Rovner will write as well as executive produce along with Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Hyun Mi Yoo, Hyuntak Jo, and Joon Suh Park for JTBC. “TriBeCa” is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, where Berlanti, Queller and Rovner are all under separate overall deals. No date has been set.
Berlanti currently has several television projects in development and on the air, including upcoming fall series “Batwoman” and “Katy Keene” for the CW and “Prodigal Son” for Fox. Berlanti is also an executive producer on the CW’s “Supergirl,” which is coming up on its 5th season this fall.
Queller is also known for “The Carrie Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” and “Blood and Oil,” the latter of which Rovner also produced. His credits also include “Private Practice” and “Bionic Woman.”
All 44 Stephen King Movies, Ranked Worst to Best (Photos)
Where does “Doctor Sleep” place among the many big-screen adaptations of the horror master’s work?
Stephen King isn't just an author by this point: He's an institution, a legacy of classic horror stories that capture our imaginations, fuel our nightmares, and speak -- when he's at his best -- to our shared experiences as flawed, emotional beings. The best King stories scare so many of us that we all feel connected, and even the worst are usually pretty fun.
King's books and short stories quickly became hit movies, many of them celebrated in their time, and some flopped so hard that hardly anybody remembers them. Cataloguing every adaptation might be a fool's errand, so we made some tough choices and decided to focus only on his theatrical releases.
And even then, there are so many King adaptations that it gets tricky. The sequels to King's work rarely have anything to do with the source material, so they're all disqualified (even though some, like Larry Cohen's prescient anti-fascist monster drama "A Return to Salem's Lot," are genuinely interesting). We also cut King some slack and removed "The Lawnmower Man" from our watch list, since he fought to have his own name removed from the film and won.
(There are also some adaptations that are simply difficult to find in America, like the Indian adaptions of "Misery" and "Quitter's, Inc." -- "Julie Ganapathi" and "No Smoking" -- but we tried. We promise we tried.)
Even with all those caveats we felt one particular film deserved a quasi-official, honorable mention. Before we rank into every theatrically-released Stephen King adaptation let's give out one honorable mention...
