NBC has ordered a script for a procedural from 20th Century Fox TV, based on Thomas Sniegoski’s Remy Chandler urban fantasy novels. The six-volume series is about an angel who, having grown weary of celestial warfare, chose to embrace earthly life and develop a deep appreciation for humans and their vices. The project is described as a procedural with humor, questions of faith and fate, and a very distinct partnership. Bill Chais is attached to write and exec produce. Fox-based Jonathan Levin is EP. On Sniegoski’s Remy Chandler website, the Boston private eye is described as a guy with many useful talents, including but not confined to, making himself invisible speaking any language (including the language of animals), and thought-reading.
Fingers crossed this gets made! And if you want to catch up on the series before it’s a monster tv hit, the latest Remy novel, Walking in the Midst of Fire, just came out in August!
