A new thriller that has just received a series order was co-created and co-written by writer, producer and director Henry Bromell, who was a key player behind Showtime’s acclaimed “Homeland” before his death in 2013.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the Emmy-winning Bromell co-wrote the new project, “Falling Water,” with his frequent collaborator Blake Masters. The project received a series order from USA Network.
“From Universal Cable Productions and executive produced by ‘The Walking Dead’s’ Gale Anne Hurd and her studio-based Valhalla banner, ‘Falling Water’ is described as a thriller intersecting reality and unconscious thoughts,” THR reports. “The drama, which is being exec produced and directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (’28 Weeks Later’), focuses on three unrelated people who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream.”
Bromell, whose credits include writing and directing the 2000 feature film “Panic,” was a consulting producer and later an executive producer on “Homeland,” and wrote four episodes of the series. He received a Writers Guild of America Award for the episode “The Good Soldier,” and was honored postumously with a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for the episode “Q&A.”
Bromell died suddenly in March 2013 after suffering a heart attack. He was 65.
