Three months after The CW canceled its Sarah Michelle Gellar drama “Ringer,” creators Nicole Snyder and Eric Charmelo have sold another thriller — to NBC. THR reports that the network has given a blind script commitment to an untitled sexy gothic thriller set in New Orleans that’s described as being rich with tradition, superstition and murder. Snyder and Charmelo will pen the drama and executive produce alongside TBD Productions’ Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan for Universal Television.
In other news, Intrepid Pictures has tapped Grzegorz Jonkajtys to helm Fourth Horseman, a contemporary action thriller “About a young medical intern who is haunted by nightmarish clairvoyant visions of the future, is hunted by three of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He discovers his destiny is to prevent the rise of the Fourth Horseman–Death–and to avert the end of the world.” Deadline reports that the script was written by Byron Willinger & Phil DeBlasi, and the latest draft was written by Ryan Engel.
