NBC Nabs ‘Flight Risk’ Drama From HUMANITAS Board Member, John Wells, As Put Pilot
NBC has given a put pilot commitment to Flight Risk, a woman-on-the-run thriller drama with comedic elements from Shameless executive producers Krista Vernoffand John Wells. The project hails from Warner Bros. TV and studio-based John Wells Prods.
Written by Vernoff, Flight Risk centers on Maddie Silva. Popular, funny and brilliant in a courtroom, her “take no mercy” approach towards the criminals she prosecutes has earned her the nickname “The Shark.” But when she loses her temper in a divorce mediation, comically threatening to have her soon-to-be-ex-husband killed and he turns up dead the next day, she has to go on the run and turn to a criminal she has been prosecuting to help her clear her name. Maddie’s humanity and sense of humor remain intact as she is forced to compromise every moral she has — and question everything she ever thought she knew.
Vernoff and Wells executive produce.
