Deadline reports Criminal Minds‘ Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie have sold two hour-long projects. CBS has made a put pilot commitment to the Still At Large TV show pilot — a U.S. Marshals drama — from the duo and Chris Brancato.
Meanwhile, ABC is developing Dworkin and Beattie’s sci-fi pilot, The Crossing. They are writing and will executive produce with Jason Reed. Both shows hail from ABC Studios.
Here’s more, from Deadline:
Written/executive produced by Brancato, Dworkin and Beattie, in Still At Large, after evading the largest manhunt in U.S. history and becoming infamous for a murder he didn’t commit, a man is recruited by the U.S. Marshals to track other fugitives, where he’s paired with a female partner who questions whether he really is innocent.
Written/executive produced by Dworkin and Beattie and executive produced by former Disney executive-turned-producer Jason Reed, The Crossing (working title) revolves around refugees from a war torn country who start showing up seeking asylum in a U.S. city… but the country these people are from is America, and the war they are fleeing is 500 years in the future.
What do you think? How do you like the sound of the Still At Large and The Crossing TV show pilots? Which one interests you more?
I will just get NetFlix to watch my shows instead. Thank you
