NBC has ordered a drama script billed as a modern-day take on the legend of “Frankenstein.”
Script comes from two of the executive producers of “House,” Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner, via that series’ studio, Universal Media Studios, and BermanBraun, reports Variety.
“House” is coming up on its eighth and likely final season given Fox has signaled it has no intent of going any further, though UMS has the option to shop it elsewhere UMS is a logical home for a “Frankenstein” revival given Universal Studios owns the intellectual property to classic movie monsters including Dracula, Wolfman and The Mummy.
Friend and Lerner are writing partners who have been on “House” since 2005, graduating to EPs in the fourth season. Their previous credits include “Martial Law,” “Smallville,” “Roswell” and “Boston Public.”
