The network on Thursday handed out a formal pilot pickup to drama Time, from an all-star combination of Shawn Ryan, Eric Kripke, John Davis and John Fox, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The high-octane project follows an unlikely trio who travel through time to battle a master criminal intent on altering the fabric of human history with potentially catastrophic results.
Ryan (The Shield, Terriers) and Kripke (Supernatural) will pen the script and executive produce alongside The Blacklist producers Davis and Fox. Marney Hochman is also set to exec produce the drama. Time hails from Sony Pictures Television, where Ryan, Kripke and Davis/Fox's Davis Entertainment are based.
For NBC, meanwhile, Time marks the network's latest drama pilot pickup. NBC also is fast-tracking Chicago P.D. spinoff Chicago Law, has a Taken reboot picked up straight to series and is redeveloping guardian angel drama Unveiled from last season.
