NBC has given a pilot production commitment to “Outbreak,” an hourlong series based on the hit 1995 Warner Bros feature directed by Wolfgang Petersen and starring Dustin Hoffman, Morgan Freeman and Rene Russo, Deadline reports. This marks one of the biggest commitments to a drama project so far this development cycle.
Former “ER” executive producers John Wells and Jack Orman are reuniting with NBC for the high-profile medical drama project.
Co-written by Wells and Orman, “Outbreak” is described as a medical thriller that follows an ensemble of characters as they race to contain a lethal virus before it becomes a global pandemic.
Warner Bros TV and studio-based John Wells Prods are producing, with Wells, Orman and JWP’s Andrew Stearn executive producing.
