Fox Greenlights Teen Spy Drama From 'Bones' Producer

Shawn Levy & Marty Adelstein: 11 projects sold

HIGHLIGHT: NBC has given a script plus penalty commitment to a "Romancing the Stone" adaptation from "The Forgotten" creator Mark Friedman, with Levy ("Date Night") attached to direct.

Fox is getting into the spy business with former Bones producer Karyn Usher.

The first-place network has ordered to pilot an untitled spy drama from Usher revolving around the orphaned 17-year-old daughter of a CIA operative who is recruited to become an operative herself.

From 20th Television and Marty Adelstein and Shawn Levy's 21 Laps/Adelstein Productions, Usher will write and exec produce alongside Adelstein, Levy and Becky Clements.

The project is the second female-driven spy drama to land a pilot order at Fox this season, joining Josh Friedman's (The Finder) CIA project.

The project marks the fourth drama ordered to pilot behind Greg Berlanti's Guilty, Kevin Williamson's untitled serial killer drama and Friedman's spy piece.

Usher, whose credits also include Prison Break and The Playboy Club, is repped by UTA.
