Fox Picks Up 'High-Octane Drama' From Peter Berg and Elwood Reid

Lining up his third television project in as many weeks, Peter Berg has landed a "high-octane drama" at Fox.

Deadline reports the network has given a script commitment to the untitled project, written by "The Bridge" co-developer Elwood Reid and produced by Berg's Film 44.

The drama follows "the most lethal mind in America," a ruthless military professor who's recruited by one of her former students to help a covert division of the CIA deal with high-priority targets. Reid and Berg will executive produce.

This sale follows Fox's pilot order for an action comedy from Berg and "Burn Notice" creator Matt Nix, and HBO's deal for "Untamed," the Western from Berg and Matt L. Smith (Film 44 already produces "Ballers" and "The Leftovers" at HBO).
