Fox taps scribe for 'Fallen'

John Glenn on board for vigilante drama

Fox has "Fallen" for a vigilante drama from "Eagle Eye" co-writer John Glenn.

The project, produced by 20th and the Chernin Co., is described as a real-world drama that revolves around a group of vigilante "fallen" angels who take down the criminal and the corrupt in New York while falling in love, battling demons and seeking their own personal revenge.

Glenn is executive producing with Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope, the Chernin Co.'s TV head.

Chernin's producing deal with News Corp. has several blind production commitments at the Fox network built into it. It is not clear whether "Fallen" would fall under any of them.

In addition to "Fallen," the Chernin Co. also has a multicamera comedy by Bobby Bowman set up at Fox.

Glenn, who wrote and directed the 2008 feature "The Lazarus Project" starring Paul Walker, and the 2006 ABC pilot "Drift," is repped by ICM.
