Crime Drama From ‘Homeland’ Duo Howard Gordon & Alex Gansa Gets Pilot Production Commitment At CBS
By NELLIE ANDREEVA

Homeland co-creators/executive producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa just landed a pilot production commitment at CBS to go with the two Emmys they won 10 days ago, including best drama series. CBS has handed out the big penalty to Anatomy Of Violence, a drama from 20th Century Fox TV and Gordon’s studio-based Teakwood Lane. It will be co-written by Gordon and Gansa in a followup to them co-penning the pilot for Homeland based on Gideon Raff’s Israeli series, which earned them an Emmy for best drama writing. Inspired by the soon-to-be-published non-fiction title The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime” by Adrian Raine, the CBS drama centers on a female FBI agent starts working with a mysterious psychiatrist with whom she shares a past connection. Gordon and Gansa will executive produce, with Teakwood’s Hugh Fitzpatrick co-executive producing.

Anatomy of Violence extends Gordon and Gansa’s successful reunion as writing partners. As referenced in Gansa’s Emmy acceptance speech, the two started off as a writing team before splitting up while working on The X Files. Years later, Gordon, as showrunner on 24, hired Gansa, and the two restarted their writing partnership with Homeland.

It has been a strong first development season for Teakwood Lane. This marks the fifth broadcast sale for company, which was launched in July, along with an untitled adventure drama penned by Shaun Cassidy, which has a put pilot commitment at Fox; legal drama Ritter at NBC, which Gordon is doing with fellow Homeland executive producer Alex Cary; an untitled futuristic thriller for NBC with writer Josh Friedman, which has a script commitment with significant penalty attached; and the Max Landis-penned Vigilant at Fox, which also has penalty. Gordon and Gansa are repped by WME and attorney Michael Gendler.
Considering that not one, but both guys are involved in the writing, I'm very interested. Perhaps they could actually make an interesting CBS crime procedural.

‘Homeland’s David Harewood Cast In CBS Pilot ‘Anatomy Of Violence’
By NELLIE ANDREEVA

Homeland alum David Harewood is reuniting with the Showtime series’ executive producers Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Alex Cary. Harewood has become the first actor cast in the CBS drama pilot Anatomy of Violence, written and executive produced by Gordon, Gansa and Cary and directed by Mark Pellington. Inspired by the non-fiction book The Anatomy Of Violence: The Biological Roots Of Crime by Adrian Raine, the 20th TV-produced drama centers on Raines, a criminal psychologist with an expertise in sociopaths who partners with a young female detective with whom he shares a conflicted past. Harewood will play Alejo, Special Agent in Charge, celebrated profiler and Raines’ boss and friend. Harewood, repped by APA, Conway Van Gelder Grant and Authentic, just finished a two-season stint on Emmy-winning Homeland as CIA bigwig David Estes. He most recently filmed a supporting role in Paul Haggis’ The Third Person and is attached to play the title role in a Darrell Roodt-directed indie aboutsinger/actor Paul Robeson.
 
Well this gets a bit more interesting. Will be tough to crack the lineup with the few spots CBS will have open but they have the right people behind it.

Amber Tamblyn To Star In CBS Drama Pilot ‘Anatomy of Violence’ From ‘Homeland’ Trio
By NELLIE ANDREEVA

EXCLUSIVE: In her first TV gig since her memorable season-long arc on House, Amber Tamblyn has signed on as the female lead opposite Skeet Ulrich in the CBS drama pilot Anatomy Of Violence, written and executive produced by Homeland‘s Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Alex Cary and directed by Mark Pellington. Inspired by the nonfiction book by Adrian Raine, the 20th TV-produced drama centers on Raines (Ulrich), a maverick FBI Criminal Psychiatrist with an expertise in sociopaths who partners with Abby (Tamblyn), a young female FBI Agent with whom he shares a conflicted past. Abby joined the Bureau after watching her sister get traumatized at the hands of a gunman thirteen years ago. Anatomy of Violence brings Tamblyn back to CBS where she broke out as the star of drama series Joan Of Arcadia, which earned her an Emmy nomination. The actress, repped by UTA and Hyler Management, recently wrapped the indie 3 Night In The Desert.
Don't really have an opinion on her, but I'm glad they're getting rolling with casting this thing.
