The CW is developing a police drama series from writer Katie Lovejoy and executive producer Bill Lawrence, Variety reported last night.
Titled “Dead Inside”, the series would follow an underachieving beat cop who, after surviving an explosion that killed her hotshot detective big brother, starts seeing his ghost, flipping their sibling dynamic on its head and allowing her to truly live her life for the first time. They work together to help crime victims both living and dead, and figure out the unfinished business keeping his spirit on Earth.
Lovejoy previously wrote the NBC series “Dracula” starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
Lovejoy will also executive produce in addition to writing. Jeff Ingold, president of Lawrence’s Doozer Productions, will executive produce along with Lawrence. Doozer will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.
