Fox enlists Marc Webb to helm pilot
Jeff Nachmanoff tapped to direct ABC's '187 Detroit'
A week after landing the "Spider-Man" reboot, director Marc Webb has been tapped to helm his first pilot, Fox's "Midland."
Meanwhile, Jeff Nachmanoff has been hired to direct another drama pilot, ABC's "187 Detroit."
Written by "The Beaver" scribe Kyle Killen, the 20th TV-produced "Midland" is a soap set against the backdrop of an oil business that centers on a polygamist living a double life.
Former music video director Webb, repped by Gersh and Anonymous, made a splash with his feature-directing debut, last summer's romantic comedy "(500) Days of Summer." He beat out a number of other directors to take on Columbia's "Spider-Man" franchise.
In the ABC Studios-produced light drama "Detroit," penned by feature writer Jason Richman, a fictional documentary crew follows a top homicide division.
Nachmanoff, whose feature writing credits include "The Day After Tomorrow" and the upcoming "The Tourist," made his pilot directing debut last year with Fox's "Masterwork."
