CBS has given a put-pilot production commitment to a drama series about a group of modern-day Robin Hoods. “Star Trek: Discovery” producer Alex Kurtzman and “Star Trek Beyond” director Justin Lin are both set to executive produce.
The project is based on Geoff Manaugh’s book “A Burglar’s Guide to the City” which follows a group led by a brilliant architect with a troubled past who use their unique skills to gain access to any stronghold in order to steal from rich criminals and help those wronged by a corrupt system.
“Scorpion” producer Paul Grellong will write the project and executive produce with Kurtzman, Lin, Heather Kadin and Danielle Woodrow. Lin will direct the pilot.
