CBS Buys INTELLIGENCE Pilot, David Semel Directing


Director David Semel

John revealed some HUGE news on his blog the other day — CBS have bought the pilot of INTELLIGENCE, a planned series based on his YA thriller Dissident (Simon & Schuster, January 2014).

Last week, David Semel, who has directed and / or produced a ton of great TV, including the pilot for Person of Interest and episodes of Homeland, Heroes, CSI, House, and American Horror Story, joined the team. He will direct the pilot and produce alongside Michael Seitzman (North Country) and Tripp Vinson (Red Dawn).

As I understand it — and admittedly, my understanding is blurry at best — now they make the pilot. If CBS likes the pilot, they order the series, which would air this fall.

How awesome is that? Amazingly awesome.
