Ritchie lined up for ABC 'Suspects'


Guy Ritchie is venturing into television with "Suspects," a drama pilot for ABC that he will direct and executive produce.

Meanwhile, Fox has handed out a pilot order to cop drama "The Apostles."

"Suspects," from Sony Pictures TV and studio-based 25 C Prods., is a procedural crime drama that tells the story of each suspect in a recently committed crime until the truth about which one of them committed the crime is revealed.

Ed Zuckerman (the CW Network's "Runaway") penned the pilot and is executive producing with Ritchie and 25 C's Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.

Ritchie is best known for writing and directing "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch."

"The Apostles," from 20th Century Fox TV, follows a group of cops whose pressure on the job often bleeds into their off-duty lives.

Chuck Pratt is the writer/executive producer.
