NBC has made a pilot-production commitment to Endgame, a conspiracy thriller written by Leverage co-creator John Rogers.
Deadline reports the project, from Sony Pictures and The Blacklist producers Dave Entertainment, centers on a former intelligence officer turned security expert who’s wrongly accused of murdering his wife. He’s offered freedom by a powerful syndicate in exchange for stopping high-stakes crimes.
While seeking to avenge his wife and unravel a conspiracy involving his mysterious employers, he “realizes he’s a player in a hundred-year-old tradition where the rich and powerful bet on the ultimate ‘game’: crime in our world.”
Rogers, whose credits also include Jackie Chan Adventures, the first draft of 2007’s Transformers and the unaired Global Frequency pilot, is known in comics circles as the co-creator of Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes, and as the writer of such BOOM! Studios’ Zombie Tales and IDW Publishing’s Dungeons & Dragons.
He’ll executive produce Endgame with Davis Entertainment’s John Davis and John Fox.
