EXCLUSIVE: Sleeper Cell creators Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff have been tapped as executive producers/showrunners of TNT‘s drama pilot Legends, from Homeland‘s Howard Gordon. Legends, developed by Gordon, Jeffrey Nachmanoff and Mark Bomback from the novel by Robert Littell, centers on Martin Odum (Sean Bean), a deep-cover CIA operative who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. Voris and Reiff will executive produce alongside Gordon, Nachmanoff, Alex Cary and Jonathan Levin for Fox 21. Co-starring in the pilot are Steve Harris, Amber Valletta, Rob Mayes, Tina Majorino and Lux Haney Jardine. Voris and Reiff, whose feature credits include Kung Fu Panda, recently worked on Starz’s live-action adaptation of the 2001 Japanese anime series Noir. They are repped by UTA, manager Jeff Field and attorney Dave Feldman.
