Game of Thrones‘ Neil Marshall will direct NBC‘s TV show pilot, Time, written by Supernatural‘s Eric Kripke and The Sheild‘s Shawn Ryan. The three will executive produce with The Blacklist‘s John Davis and John Fox. Ryan’s much beloved Terriers was cancelled by FX after its first season. Davis’s The Player was cancelled after nine episodes on NBC.
Time features a threesome traveling through time to thwart a criminal mastermind determined to alter history, regardless of the disaster that could ensue. Update: 5/13/2016: NBC ordered the show to series with a new title, Timeless.
Here is more, from Deadline:
Ryan and Kripke co-wrote the script and executive produce with Marshall, Davis Entertainment’s John Davis and John Fox and MiddKid Prods.’ Marney Hochman.
Marshall was nominated for an Emmy in 2014 for directing the GOT episode “The Watchers on the Wall.” He recently directed and executive produced the USA pilot Poor Richard’s Almanack and also helmed the opening episode of Starz’s Black Sails. Marshall is repped by WME and Principato Young Entertainment.
In case you missed it, here is our article on NBC ordering the TV show pilot for Time.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Kripke and Ryan’s other TV shows? If NBC orders the Time TV series, do you plan to give it a look?
Would be great if TIME gets picked up as a series for NBC. If it does, it should become a breakout hit for the Peacock network.
