Chris Brancato ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent") penned the Universal Television-based hour (the title of which "refers to a cop term for homicide detectives who, as a result of dealing with particularly brutal crimes, become a danger to themselves and are put under psychiatric observation"), which has a pilot production commitment. Production then is targeted for the end of the year in New York with the trio serving as executive producers. (Deadline.com)

Warner Bros. Television and Gerber Pictures are co-producing the hour with the latter's Bill Gerber ("Gran Torino") executive producing alongside Camp. (Deadline.com)


UNTITLED JOE KEENAN PROJECT (ABC, New!) - Joe Keenan ("Desperate Housewives") has booked a period drama at the Alphabet about "a mother/daughter team who are given their own variety show" in the 1970s.
