Fox has handed out a pilot order to Minority Report, an hour-long drama series which is a follow up to the Tom Cruise feature film of the same name.
Minority Report is set 10 years after the end of pre-crime in D.C. when one of the three pre-cogs struggles to lead a “normal” human life, but remains haunted by visions of the future. He meets a detective haunted by her past who just may help him find a purpose for his gift.
Minority Report was one of the hottest spec scripts floated this development season and after a bidding war between networks landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment in September. With the official pilot order, the project becomes one of the first that new Fox toppers Dana Walden and Gary Newman have picked up since taking the reins late last year.
The hour-long pilot was written by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein, who serves as an executive producer alongside Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey. Kevin Falls has also boarded the project as executive producer and showrunner. Paramount Television and 20th Century Fox Television are producing.
