After Scott Foley co-starred in Rina Mimoun’s CBS/Warner Bros. TV drama pilot The Doctor this past development season, the actor is teaming with Mimoun for another CBS/WBTV drama project, this time serving as a writer. CBS has bought The Escape Artist, a drama script from WBTV about a brother and sister who help people disappear. It will be co-written and executive produced by Foley and Privileged creator Mimoun, marking Foley’s writing debut.
Elsewhere, NBC has bought Secret America, a drama script set at the world of CIA from writer Peter Landesman, Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox TV. The spy drama is set in a small town that appears to be middle America but actually harbors a large community of intelligence operatives. Landesman, Erwin Stoff, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo are executive producing.
