After interest from multiple networks, NBC has bought an hourlong project from Life creator/executive producer Rand Ravich. The untitled drama project, produced by 20th Century Fox TV, is described as an emotionally charged action thriller set in and around the world of Washington DC. It follows an idealistic secret service agent who finds himself at the epicenter of an international crisis on his first day on the job. He will need to cross moral and legal lines as he navigates the highest levels of power and corruption on his search for the truth. Ravich is executive producing with his producing partner Far Shariat, making a return to NBC where he landed his first series, the 2007 drama Life. Last year, Ravich wrote a Navy SEALs drama for Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV, which had a put pilot commitment at ABC.
