WGN America Orders Series from HUMANITAS Winner Peter Tolan
WGN America is boosting its scripted programming slate with a series order for the drama “Titans,” which counts “Rescue Me” alum Peter Tolan among its executive producers, and is developing another drama, “Underground,” with an eye toward a series order.
Created and written by playwright Peter Mattei, “Titans” is billed as a struggle for power and control set in the rugged and mysterious hills of Appalachia. It tells the story of the Farrell clan, a family of outsiders who've been in these parts since before anyone can remember. Living off the grid and above the law on their mountaintop homestead, they'll protect their world and defend their way of life using any means necessary.
Mattei also serves as executive producer along with Tolan, Paul Giamatti, Dan Carey and Michael Wimer. The drama has received a 13-episode order.
