Charles Dickens is headed to network TV. Variety reports NBC is developing a new series called Twist.
Based on the classic novel Oliver Twist, the show will follow a “struggling, twenty-something female (Twist) who ‘finally finds a true sense of family in a strange group of talented outcasts who use their unique skills to take down wealthy criminals.'”
The pilot is being written by Chad Damiani and J.P. Lavin, who will executive produce alongside Joel Silver and Rodney Ferrell.
