EXCLUSIVE: It’s a busy development season for Life creator/executive producer Rand Ravich and his producing partner Far Shariat, who have sold a second drama project with significant commitment. The Prodigy, which went to Fox with a script commitment plus penalty, centers on a young CIA officer who has to infiltrate the New York City field office of the FBI on the hunt for agents who are working with enemies of the U.S.
Ravich will write, as he is an untitled action thriller which landed at NBC with a put pilot commitment last night. That project is on first position to the Fox one. Ravich is executive producing both dramas with Shariat through 20th Century Fox TV, where they’re under a deal. Ravich is repped by CAA and Carlos Goodman. Shariat is with CAA and Jeff Frankel.
