NBC Schedules 'Homeland Security' for April
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has opted to burn off its failed two-hour drama pilot "Homeland Security" as an original movie come April. The Peacock has slated the project to air Sunday, April 11 at 9:00/8:00c.

The news marks the third time in recent memory the Peacock has turned one of its shelved pilots into a telefilm. Last season saw the Jeff Goldblum-led drama "War Stories" morph into a January 2003 original movie while Steven Spielberg's "Semper Fi" got a second life as a telefilm in April 2001.

As for "Homeland," here's how NBC's press materials describe the project:

Our first and last line of defense.

In the war on terror, these are the American warriors on the front lines: Admiral Theodore McKee, a husband, father and patriot who understands the human side of war. Gaining unprecedented cooperation between government agencies, he has assembled an elite unit of men and women to root out terrorists both domestically and internationally. Among them: young CIA Field Operative Bradley Brand; his mentor Joe Johnson, a battle-tested veteran of clandestine CIA operations the world over; National Security expert Sol Binder; and FBI counter-terrorism partners Frank Heinhoff and "Jungle Jane" Fulbar. They wage a war with no rules. They pursue an enemy hiding throughout the world. They know that some of their greatest victories will never be made public. But together, their mission is a singular one: to protect the American homeland.

Cast: Tom Skerritt as Admiral Theodore McKee, Grant Show as Bradley Brand, Scott Glenn as Joe Johnson, Leland Orser as Sol Binder, Marisol Nichols as "Jungle Jane" Fulbar and Ross Gibby as Frank Heinhoff.

Studio: Paramount Network Television

Executive Producer/Writer: Christopher Crowe ("Fear," "The Bone Collector")

Executive Produer: Kerry McCluggage ("Miami Vice")

Co-Executive Producer/Director: Daniel Sackheim ("Kingpin," "The Sopranos")
