'Nomads' finds home at the CW
'Numbers' exec producer Ken Sanzel will direct pilot
The CW has handed a presentation order to "Nomads," an action adventure drama from "Numbers" executive producer Ken Sanzel.
The project, from CBS Studios, Warner Bros TV and Scott Free Prods., is described as an adrenaline-fueled thrill ride following a group of nearly broke young backpackers traveling the world who agree to earn money by working secret missions for the CIA.
Sanzel wrote the script and will direct the pilot.
He is also executive producing with Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and David Zucker.
This is the third pilot presentation for the CW this season, following orders for the cheerleading drama "Hellcats" and the untitled Amy Holden Jones medical drama.
