Jerry Bruckheimer's 'Home' Moves From Fox to TNT With Pilot Pickup
Kevin Reilly is bringing one of his former Fox dramas home.
The TNT and TBS president has handed out a pilot pickup to drama Home, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From exec producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Home is described as a dramatic thriller that delves into the secrets lingering behind the facade of a seemingly idyllic suburban family.
The drama centers on the newly pregnant Rose Altman, an accomplished designer with a successful business and wonderful life with husband, Joe, a highly regarded prison psychologist, and the stepmother to his two sons. But her image of her perfect family is shattered when she discovers secrets that threaten to destroy the very foundation of her life.
The drama, originally picked up in February 2014 at Fox during Reilly's "no pilots" period with a series prototype and additional scripts, hails from Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Warner Horizon Television.
Bruckheimer and his Warner Bros. Television-based JBT topper Jonathan Littman will exec produce alongside Aron Eli Coleite (Heroes, Crossing Jordan), who wrote the pilot, and Brad Anderson (Fringe), who will direct. Bruckheimer's Kristie Anne Reed (Hostages, TNT’s Dark Blue) is set as a co-executive producer. WBTV was originally attached to produce the Fox project, which moved to the studio's cable-focused arm with the jump to TNT.
For TNT, the pilot pickup comes as Reilly has been looking for edgier fare as he reshapes the Turner-owned network. Also in the works at TNT are pilots Animal Kingdom (redeveloped from Showtime); Will (originally ordered straight to series at Pivot in 2013) and Good Behavior (starring Michele Dockery). They join pre-Reilly pilots Titans, a cocaine drama also from Bruckheimer that's being redeveloped and Lumen.
The TNT pickup comes as Bruckheimer is already off to a host start this development season, landing a Training Day reboot at CBS as well as a straight-to-series order for Harvest at Spike TV. His company's credits include the upcoming series finale of CSI, spinoff CSI: Cyber and The Amazing Race.
