Just one day after the new fall television season kicked off, NBC placed its first pilot order for the 2014-15 television season. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network ordered a drama that’s described as a "Traffic"-like thriller.
The project, "Odyssey," is from "The Following" writers Adam Armus and Kay Foster, with Peter Horton of "thirtysomething" executive producing, the story reports. Armus, Foster and Horton will co-write the pilot.
"The drama centers on three families who are torn apart when a stranded female soldier, a disillusioned corporate attorney and a disrespected political activist are pulled into the same shocking international military conspiracy," the report notes.
