A pilot for a drama with its origins in the critically acclaimed 1990s NBC cop show “Homicide: Life on the Street” has been bought by A&E, Deadline.com reports.

“Homicide’s” Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson are behind the half-hour series, an outgrowth of one of the featured elements of "Homicide," the story reports.

The new show is "The Box," and it’s centered on the interrogation process — in which a suspect or witness is stuck in a small room and pressured into talking.

Deadline reports: “The project expands on a key element from ‘Homicide,’ where plots often pivoted on what the series called ‘The Box,’ a sterile, rectangular interrogation room where suspects were brought in for questioning.”

Bob DeBitetto, president and general manager of A&E Network and BIO Channel, said, “’The Box’ takes the most thrilling scene of a crime procedural and puts it at center stage in a unique format.”

"NCIS’s" Arvin Brown will produce the show if it gets picked up. Fontana is writing two scripts, as per A&E’s request.
