Fox Orders Superhero Drama From 'Homeland' Producer THR
Fox has given a script-plus-penalty order to "Homeland" executive producer Howard Gordon for a project about a young woman who creates a superhero persona to fight crime, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.
Gordon is working with "Chronicle" screenwriter Max Landis on "Vigilant," with Landis creating the idea and writing the script, the story says. Landis will also executive produce.
The project is about a 20-year-old woman who creates a fictional persona to fight crime in her city -- including taking on its corrupt police department, the piece notes.
