“‘NCIS’ star and executive producer Mark Harmon is shepherding a new crime drama project [being developed] at CBS, based on author John Sandford’s best-selling ‘Prey’ novels,” reports Rick Porter in a scoop for the Hollywood Reporter.
The article says “Harmon will be an executive producer on the CBS TV Studios effort, which comes from former ‘Shadowhunters’ showrunner Ed Decter. The show would focus on Minneapolis homicide detective Lucas Davenport and his best friend and profiler, psychology professor — and nun — Elle Krueger. The two were brought together by a shared tragedy and now work together to hunt their ‘prey’: the most dangerous criminals in Minnesota.”
The story notes that Sandford has written 29 “Prey” novels, which have sold, worldwide, 30 million copies.
