Blackmail, a hot hour-long drama from former Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul, John Sonntag and Thomas Sonntag has landed at NBC with a script commitment, TVWise has learned.
The project follows a married couple who, after suffering a life-changing incident, decide to get back at the man responsible by threatening to reveal his infidelity to his fiancee. But when things turn out to be more sinister than the couple originally thought, a dark game of cat-and-mouse sets them on the path to knowing what it means to be a real-life power couple.
The Sonntag brothers are penning the script and will serve as executive producers on the project. Aaron Paul will also executive producer through his Lucid Road banner. NBC’s sister company Universal Television, where Paul’s Lucid Road is under a first-look deal, will serve as the studio.
