NBC is adding to its recent spate of drama pickups with a pilot order for Game Of Silence, which hails from veteran producer and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation showrunner Carol Mendelsohn, and Parenthood scribe David Hudgins.

The hour-long drama project is based on a Turkish drama and originally landed at NBC back in September with a hefty pilot production commitment. It tells the story of a rising attorney with a mysterious past who is on the brink of success. All that is threatened, however, when a long lost friend from childhood returns and threatens to reveal a dark secret from his past.

Parenthood scribe David Hudgins penned the script for the drama, which is set up at Sony Pictures Television, Carol Mendelsohn, who worked on 14 seasons on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation before recently handing the showrunner reins over to Don McGill, executive produces alongside David Hudgins, Julie Weitz, Timur Savci and Tariq Jalil.

Game Of Silence is the fourth drama pilot that NBC has picked up this development season, following recent orders to The Curse Of The Fuentes Women, from Ugly Betty creator Silvio Horta and Warner Bros. Television; Love Is A Four Letter Word from Diana Son and 20th Century Fox Television; and martial arts drama Warrior from NBC’s sister studio Universal Television.
