EXCLUSIVE: Starz has put in development Most Wanted, a drama project from writer Chris Collins, director Ken Fink and author Dan Chaon. Set in the Great Plains during the 1970s, Most Wanted traces the rise and demise of Nate Daniels, a talented and prolific bank robber who finds himself on a collision course with his family and crew as he becomes one of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted. “This period in American history was an incredibly rich and complex time, and we saw Most Wanted as an opportunity to bring these stories to life,” said Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik. “We are excited to give this project the premium cable platform and to be in business with Chris, Ken and Dan.”
TNT has put in development Anonymous, an action-driven drama from Sons Of Anarchy executive producer Chris Collins.

Collins, repped by UTA and attorney Joel McKuin, will executive produce with Wild West’s Peter Billingsley and Victoria Vaughn. Collins, whose previous credits include The Wire, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Starz’s Crash, has several other projects in development including music-driven period event series Hit Men at Spike TV produced by Leslie Greif and Gene Simmons.
