The pilot was written by James V. Hart (Hook, Dracula, Contact) and Jake Hart. Johnny Depp, Christi Dembrowski, Sam Sarkar and Gudrun Giddings will produce together with Showrunner Pam Veasey. (CSI-NY). CAA (Creative Artists Agency) is packaging.
Giddings, who optioned the media rights back in 2012, believes the IP will offer “fantastical storylines with intriguing characters, a thrilling, and binge-worthy international TV show”.
