Fox is betting on an airline drama in which the crew does a lot worse than withhold free peanuts.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has inked a deal with writer/producer Sheldon Turner for The Ultimate Getaway, a drama focusing on a flight crew that uses its layovers as cover to commit international heists.
Known for work on blockbuster screenplays like X-Men: First Class, Turner also penned Up in the Air — the highly successful Jason Reitman/George Clooney project — for which he earned an Oscar nod.
For Getaway, Turner has tapped writer Kevin Costello as well as producing partner Jennifer Klein.
