News about the UNSUB TV deal

UNSUB Pilot News

Here’s an update on plans to develop UNSUB into a CBS television series. From Deadline Hollywood:

EXCLUSIVE: CBS has bought Edgar-winning author Meg Gardiner’s novel UNSUB. The project was picked up by CBS Television Studios earlier this year, ahead of auction. The book was published in June by Dutton. The network has ordered a pilot script to be written by Liz Friedman, who will be executive producer and show runner, and who co-created ABC’s Conviction and co-wrote the pilot to Orange Is The New Black. Latter got her an Emmy nomination. Friedman was also an executive producer on Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and writer and senior producer for almost the entire run of both House and Elementary.

The project will be developed by Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman, who’ll serve as executive producers through their studio-based Timberman-Beverly Productions banner, and Shane Salerno through The Story Factory.

To say I’m excited is an understatement.

  1. Great news. How much say will you have in script development or who’s chosen to play the characters? Do you have any actor/actresses in mind that would be near to how you visualized the characters?

  2. Thanks, Lisa. I’m talking to the screenwriter about the script. I have some ideas about actors, but I keep those to myself — because every reader imagines the characters according to their own imagination, and I don’t want to spoil that.
