Justified Team Remakes Aussie Series “Code”

Fox has given a script commitment with significant penalty for a proposed remake of the Australian political thriller series “The Code” for FX.

“Justified” creator/executive producer Graham Yost, executive producer/director Michael Dinner and executive producer Fred Golan are teaming to serve in the same capacities on this project with Sony Pictures TV producing. Yost and Golan will adapt the story for the U.S. market while Dinner will direct the pilot.

The original followed multiple characters and their ties to a mysterious accident in which a stolen vehicle collides with a transport truck in the middle of the desert. The truth surrounding it is dangerous enough that people at the highest levels of political power will kill to keep it secret, but two brothers – a journalist and a hacker – are the key to learn the truth.

Lucy Lawless, David Wenham, Aden Young, Dan Spielman, Ashley Zukerman, Adam Garcia, Dan Wyllie and Paul Tassone starred in the original.
