Shaun Cassidy & Howard Gordon Adventure Drama Lands At Fox

Invasion creator Shaun Cassidy has teamed with Homeland executive producer Howard Gordon for a drama series that has received a put pilot commitment at Fox. Described as an adrenalized, dysfunctional family adventure series, the untitled project centers on two former CIA operatives — now married with teenagers — who are forced to face their past when their identities are exposed and they’re nearly killed. Now they’ll need to start over, under new cover, this time with their children in on the secret as they tackle cases, come together as a family, and elude those who would rather see them dead. Cassidy will write the script and executive produce with Gordon through his Teakwood Lane. 20th Century Fox TV, where Teakwood Lane is based, produces.

Brendan Fraser Set To Star In TNT Pilot ‘Legends’

The Mummy star Brendan Fraser is set to topline TNT’s drama pilot Legends. Developed by Howard Gordon, Jeffrey Nachmanoff and feature writer Mark Bomback from the novel by Robert Littell, the project follows Martin Odum (Fraser), a deep-cover operative who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job.

"The Blacklist" NBC spy drama

James Spader has been tapped to star in the network's psychological drama thriller The Blacklist,
The pilot revolves around Raymond "Red" Reddington, the world's most-wanted criminal who mysteriously turns himself in and offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with. His only condition is he will only work with a newly minted FBI agent Liz Keen (Blue Bloods' Megan Boone) with whom he seemingly has no connection.
Spader will play Red, who is described as a dignified, worldly and magnetic former Army intelligence offer who went AWOL. He doesn't consider himself to be a spy but instead a facilitator, who brokers deals for criminals and has no allegiance to any country or political agenda -- only the highest bidder.
Jon Bokenkamp (Perfect Stranger) will pen the pilot for Sony Pictures Television and executive produce alongside John Fox, John Davis and John Eisendrath (Alias), the latter of whom will serve as showrunner.
Glad to see former Alias alum as a showrunner.

James Spader to Star in NBC's Spy Drama 'The Blacklist'

It sounds like Persons of Interest meets Alias. I don't think it will be heavily serialized like The Americans or Homeland but have character building arcs.
