Stars Road Entertainment, run by Sam Raimi and Joshua Donen, has sold hourlong projects to Fox, ABC and CBS, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The deals come after the company shifted its focus on primetime TV with a first-look deal at Sony TV and with the hiring of CBS’ Robert Zotnowski as head of television, the story points out.
All thee projects are produced by Sony TV and are a mix of relationships brought in by Zotnowski with TV writers and film and comic book talent brought in by Raimi, Andreeva writes.
The ABC project is about a top female prosecutor in Los Angeles, described by Zotnowski as a "female vigilante with a law license," while the Fox project, called "Smokers," is about a documentary crew that follows workers dedicated to eliminating alien threats in outer space, the story says.
The CBS project is called "Lancaster" and follows a Scotland Yard detective who works with the Los Angeles Police Department, the article adds.
