CBS has begun development of the drama series “Angel Time” from Timberman-Beverly Productions (“Justified,” “Elementary”).

Josh Harto and Liz Garcia (“Memphis Beat”) are penning the New Orleans-set operatic drama about a soulless assassin with a tragic past who finds himself on a road to redemption.

Filmmaker Joe Carnahan (“The Grey,” “Narc”), whose pilot for NBC’s “The Blacklist” drew good reviews and strong ratings this week, is set to direct the project.

Carnahan will also executive produce along with Rice, Harto, Garcia, Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman.
