NBC Orders Dick Wolf Project, Show From 'Lost' Writer THR

NBC has ordered several projects to pilot, including one from “Law & Order” mastermind Dick Wolf and a show from "Lost" writer Carlton Cuse, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

Cuse's project is "The Sixth Gun," an adaptation of a graphic novel of the same name. It's about six mythical guns in the Old West, with the last gun, the most powerful and dangerous, awakening dark forces when it falls into the possession of an innocent girl, the story says.

Cuse will serve as executive producer and showrunner, and it marks his second project this season, following "Bates Motel" at A&E.

"Girlfriend in a Coma" is from Universal Television and Wolf Films, and is about a 34-year-old woman who wakes up from a coma. She finds that she has a 17-year-old daughter from a pregnancy she didn't know about, the story says. Wolf will serve as an executive producer on the comedy.

NBC also made several other pilot orders, including one for an untitled project from DJ Nash of "Up All Night" and a high-concept drama from Rand Ravich. The latter is about a political conspiracy.
