EXCLUSIVE: Hostages, a drama from writer-director Jeffrey Nachmanoff, Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Warner Bros. TV, has landed at CBS with a pilot production commitment. Based on an Israeli format, the project centers on a family caught in the middle of a grand political conspiracy that will change their lives forever. Hostages was originally developed for Israel’s Channel 10 by Alon Aranya, Omri Givon and Rotem Shamir. The show has not been produced in Israel, but an U.S. adaptation written by Aranya found its way to Bruckheimer TV, which bought the rights and then brought in Nachmanoff (Traitor). Nachmanoff is set to write and direct Hostages as well as executive produce it with Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Givon, Rotem Shamir and Chayim Sharir. Aranya and KristieAnne Reed serve as co-executive producers.

This is the latest big commitment for Jerry Bruckheimer TV this season. The company has a pilot order at NBC for drama The Secret Lives Of Husbands And Wives and put pilot commitments for The Bureau, an FBI drama penned by Aron Eli Coleite, at CBS and docu-style military comedy At Ease, from writers Josh Bycel & Jonathan Fener, at NBC. It also has comedy The B-Side, from writer Sheri Elwood, set up at NBC. Read More »
