ONE-HOUR ACTION/DRAMA SERIES
Los Angeles – December 5, 2013 – Golden Globe® nominated actress Pam Grier and award-winning writer and producer Bennie Richburg have partnered to develop a new one hour action drama. Grier will star in the lead role, while Richburg will pen the series.
The series follows Pam’s character, an ex-Homeland Security agent who is pulled out of retirement to lead a young but highly qualified team of “shoot first, ask questions later” agents. They are on a trail of homegrown domestic terrorists who have set about to bring anarchy to the heartland of the United States and have to stop them before it is too late.
Grier’s career has spanned more than three decades, starring in such films as JACKIE BROWN, MARS ATTACKS! and ABOVE THE LAW. Her recent credits include THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS, LARRY CROWNE and JUST WRIGHT.
Richburg recently completed the screenplay of Grier’s New York Times best-selling memoir Foxy: My Life in Three Acts.
Grier is represented by Harry Gold of TalentWorks. Richburg is represented by attorney Hillary Jones, who will also serve as a producer on the show.
Michael Rosenberg, EVP US Scripted Television at eOne, and eOne’s Harrison Reishman will oversee the project on behalf of the studio.
eOne develops, produces, acquires and distributes programming across all genres. eOne’s shows include BITTEN and HAVEN on Syfy; HELL ON WHEELS on AMC; Discovery Channel’s first-ever scripted mini-series KLONDIKE, co-produced by Discovery, eOne, and Nomadic Pictures in association with Scott Free Television, which premieres in January 2014; ROOKIE BLUE on ABC and Shaw Media; ROGUE, DIRECTV’s first original scripted series starring Thandie Newton; CALL ME FITZ on DIRECTV and HBO Canada; SAVING HOPE on CTV; and BITTEN on Space.
