"Conspiracy," "Unthinkable" Come To TV

NBC has given a put pilot order for a TV adaptation of Christopher MacBride's 2012 found footage indie drama "The Conspiracy". "Contagion" scribe Scott Z. Burns will pen and executive produce.

The original film centers on a conspiracy theorist who vanishes after a man is killed at an Occupy Wall Street protest, leaving behind his sister and an FBI agent to investigate.

Meanwhile, rival broadcaster Fox has given a pilot commitment to "Unthinkable," a drama series based on Mark Sable's BOOM! Studios comic book. Producer Howard Gordon ("Homeland") and scribe Ben Queen ("Cars 2") will executive produce.

The story follows the pairing of a by-the-book FBI agent and a washed-up screenwriter who team to stop a plot to attack the United States that the writer and others concocted in a government sponsored think tank years earlier.
