According to the company, Grid follows a professional "fixer" named Ghost who helps white-collar criminals change their identities and disappear. After saving a seemingly innocent woman from a violent loan shark, Ghost finds his own life in danger after a private security firm puts a price on his head. Ghost goes "underground" in an attempt to discover who his mystery assailant is and gets caught in a tangled web of betrayal, revenge and murder.

Cantwell and Rogers wrote The Knoll, about a rookie cop who witnesses JFK’s murder and must go on the run. The script appeared on last year’s Black List.

The writers are repped by lit agent Aaron Hart, who just last week joined Verve; the deal is his first for the agency. The scribes are additionally repped by Management 360 and Bloom Hergott.
