Here’s more on Home and Robbers, from Deadline:
[Home is] from writer Aron Eli Coleite, Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Horizon. [It is a] thriller, about a seemingly idyllic suburban family […].
“We’re probably not pursuing it,” Reilly said. “It was actually a high-class problem we had. (Home) was actually a really good pilot; they did a really good job with it. It was just that we had filled our plate with things that I thought were pretty special. But I think someone will end up picking it up; it’s pretty well done.”
TNT also likely is not going forward with its Robbers pilot. The project, from Christopher Cook, Michael Dinner, Sony Pictures TV and Timberman/Beverly, originally was set up with Tim McGraw attached to star, but he later departed. There was an effort to cast the lead, but there were difficulties in the process, leading to the network’s decision to shelf the drama, which was supposed to be made in the same batch as Will. “It is unlikely to go,” Reilly said about Robbers.
Described as being in the literary-noir tradition of Cormac McCarthy’s No Country For Old Men, Robbers tells the story of a cop, two “running buddies” on a crime spree across Texas and the girl who becomes the complication in a very unique love triangle. Everyone has a story. Everyone is a mystery.
What network or channel do you think might pick up the Home TV show? Do you think Robbers is dead in the water, or does it sound like it might work at another network, with a new lead? Tell us.
