James Patterson is back on the small screen. Deadline reports both CBS and ABC are developing new series based on books by the prolific author.
CBS is developing a drama based on Patterson’s upcoming book (co-written by Duane Swierczynski) Stingray, while ABC has bought a new drama based on the author’s book series with Michael Horowitz, NYPD Red.
Written by David Marshall Grant, Stingray “centers on a group of ex-con artists who work for the FBI, using their amazing transformational skills and elaborate deceptions to take down the most elusive criminals.”
Over at ABC, NYPD Red “centers on the eponymous special division of NYPD tasked with investigating Manhattan’s highest profile crimes.”
Patterson also has two other shows in development at CBS—Dr. Death and Black Book.
