NBC Orders Pilot for Bone Collector Series Lincoln
NBC has ordered a pilot for "Lincoln", which will be based on the Jeffrey Deaver book series The Bone Collector.
The series also inspired a 1999 film that starred Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. Washington played Lincoln Rhyme, a forensic criminologist who is searching for a serial killer called the Bone Collector. After being injured, he teams up with Jolie's character, Amelia Sachs to continue in his search.
"Lincoln" is written by VJ Boyd and Mark Bianculli and will be executive produced by Boyd and Bianculli along with Keshet's Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan.
