COLLISION (NBC, New!) - Anthony Horowitz is looking to import his U.K. event series at the Peacock. The proposed 10-episode effort, which would go straight to series, "tells the story of a group of strangers whose lives are forever changed following a major road accident. Beyond the crumpled cars are invisible dramas, and when the police start their investigation they find themselves drawn into many different and dangerous worlds including government cover-ups, smuggling, torn relationships and murder." Eleventh Hour Films, TriStar Television and Carol Mendelsohn Productions are all behind the project with Carol Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz also executive producing. (Deadline.com)


DEAD MANN WALKING (CBS, New!) - Simon Barry ("Continuum") is developing a new drama at the Eye set "in the near future, when a police detective who had been executed for murdering his wife takes a miracle drug and is brought back to life as a "second-class citizen" working as a private investigator while looking for his wife's real killer."

FASCINOMA (CBS, New!) - Steve Maeda ("Helix") has likewise set up a potential drama at the Eye about "a scientist on the road to redemption who heads up the FBI's Scientific Response Unit, a team called in when traditional law enforcement is baffled by any crime that involves science."

RECALL (CBS, New!) - Mark Goffman, Bret VandenBos and Brandon Willer are all set to team for a new drama at the Eye about "a brilliant inventor.

Said effort is set up at CBS Television Studios-based Timberman/Beverly with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly also serving as executive producers. (Deadline.com)


UNTITLED JOHN PHILLIPS PROJECT (NBC, New!) - John Phillips (Dirty Grandpa) has booked a new single-camera comedy at the Peacock about "a brother and sister illegally use their access to law enforcement information at the Manhattan District Attorney's Office to start a private detective agency right under the noses of their bosses and solve the cases that fall in between the cracks." 20th Century Fox Television-based Lord Miller is behind the project, which has a penalty attached. The company's Phil Lord and Chris Miller then will also executive produce. (Deadline.com)
