The recently relaunched Paramount Television division has announced its first development slate which includes a bunch of TV projects based on properties from the Paramount movie library.

There's a crime drama with roots in Joe Carnahan's "Narc" with Carnahan writing and directing the pilot. Paramount has also come onboard Skydance and Annapurna's "Terminator" TV series announced back in December.

Then there's "re-imaginings" of both the Jim Carrey classic "The Truman Show" and the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore supernatural romance film "Ghost".

Also in the works are a drama series inspired by Caleb Carr's novel "The Alienist," a limited series based on A. Scott Berg's Pulitzer Prize-winning Charles Lindbergh biography, and an adaptation of Peter Moffat's BBC series "The Village".
