“Underworld” director and “Sleepy Hollow” co-creator/executive producer Len Wiseman will team with “Gang Related” executive producer/showrunner Scott Rosenbaum for a new sci-fi action drama TV series.
Fox has given the pair a put pilot commitment for the untitled project which is being dubbed as “The Dirty Dozen in deep space”.
The story follows a mercenary search and rescue team dispatched to investigate a distress signal from a prison transport that has crashed on an uncharted planet. This unlikely group of heroes has to work together when they encounter an unexpected challenge.
Wiseman and Rosenbaum will executive produce, with Rosenbaum writing/showrunning and Wiseman directing. This will be Wiseman’s third pilot following those for “Hawaii Five-0” and “Sleepy Hollow”.
