Actress Jamie Lee Curtis, Air Force veteran and scribe April Fitzsimmons (“Valor,” “Chicago PD”) and Berlanti Productions are teaming for “Chain of Command,” a new one-hour drama which FOX has handed out a put pilot order for.
The story follows a young Air Force investigator with radical crime-solving methodology who returns to her hometown to join a military task force that doesn’t want her, a family who has traumatized her, and confront the secrets that drove her away.
Fitzsimmons and Curtis both worked on the story with Fitzsimmons writing the script. Curtis previously planned to act in the series as well, but no acting deal is in place.
Fitzsimmons, Curtis, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will executive produce for Warner Bros. Television and Fox Entertainment.
