NBC is reportedly developing a new political drama series, with Variety reporting that political correspondent Dana Bash of CNN is a consulting producer on the project.
“Titled ‘The Hill,’ the series is described as a character drama that lives at the supercharged intersection of media and Capitol Hill where everything is transacted: information, sex, love, fame and power. The series focuses on the people who make this world home,” Variety reports.
Paul Grellong, who was a part of the NBC shows “Revolution” and “Law & Order: SVU,” is writing and executive producing along with Chris King and Josh Berman of Osprey Productions and Wendy Walker. Sony Pictures Television is producing.
“This is the third announced project that Osprey has set up at NBC this development season,” Variety notes. “It was previously announced that the company was producing a series adaptation of the film ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ with Berman attached to write, as well as a drama from writer David Slack that follows a group who tried to cheat death by having themselves frozen.”
