Fox has picked up a TV series adaptation of GONE BABY GONE to pilot.
The untitled drama series follows private detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. Armed with their wits, their street knowledge and an undeniable chemistry, they right wrongs the law can’t in the working-class Boston borough of Dorchester.
Robert Levine is writing and executive producing with Dennis Lehane, the author of the Gone Baby Gone novel, also serving as an EP.
The novel was first adapted into a feature film in 2007, co-written and directed by Ben Affleck and starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Monaghan as Kenzie and Gennaro.
This marks the fourth drama pilot Fox has ordered this development cycle and it will join Josh Safran’s Mixtape and an untitled FBI drama from Strong’s Empire colleague Ilene Chaiken in consideration for series pickup, as well as an untitled legal drama from Danny Strong, which was ordered earlier today.
