TNT has handed out a pilot order to the fantasy drama “Lumen” which will be produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television. “Captain America: The First Avenger” helmer Joe Johnson will direct the pilot.
The story follows a famous fantasy novel series author who suddenly disappears and a family of four who are transported to the mystical alternate world that inspired her work.
Once there, however, they are plunged into the middle of a war raging between rival magical forces of light and darkness. Facing peril at every turn, the family must unravel a complicated mystery to find their way home.
Chris Black (“Mad Men,” “Desperate Housewives”) will pen the script and executive produce with Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, James Frey, Todd Cohen and Joe Johnson.
