NBC ORDERS KATHERINE HEIGL STARRER AS A PUT PILOT
Los Angeles, September 9, 2013 – NBC has won the rights to the project that has lured Emmy Award-winning actress Katherine Heigl back to network television. The put pilot, to be written by Alexi Hawley (The Following), is the first show out of the box from a joint venture between Aardwolf Creative and prolific film producer Robert Simonds. Julia Franz, who works with Simonds, will also produce.
It is the story of a maverick CIA officer (Heigl) plucked from the field to become the President’s Daily Briefer, responsible for targeting America’s most critical threats, while navigating the unique lifestyle that comes with such a high-powered job.
Executive producers on the show are Robert Simonds, Katherine Heigl, Nancy Heigl, Alexi Hawley, Henry Crumpton, Rodney Faraon and Julia Franz. Heigl comes to the project having recently wrapped the lead opposite Patrick Wilson in the dark comic feature, North of Hell, and voicing on the animated feature, The Nut Job.
Says Heigl, “I have been passionate about, and enthralled by, this project from the moment Hank, Rodney and Bob brought it to me over a year ago. The story is not only compelling and intelligent but a look behind the curtain at the CIA we haven’t seen before in film or television. I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be a part of developing these stories and this character and bringing it all to life. NBC has been a true partner in their passion and support for the show that we’ve dreamed of making and I could not be happier about joining forces with them. Together, with our brilliant writer Alexi Hawley, I believe we are going to make great television!”
