Marty Adelstein and Shawn Levy’s recently launched TV production company, 21 Laps/Adelstein, has sold its first two projects. Both will be produced through 20th Century Fox TV, where the company is based with an overall deal.
The first project from the company, which is run by former Brillstein TV executive Becky Clements, is a drama at Fox based on Neil McMahon’s series of novels about sleuthing physician Carroll Monks. Cane creator Cynthia Cidre is writing. Cidre also recently penned the Dallas reboot at TNT, which has been picked up to pilot.
21 Laps/Adelstein’s second project is a Kung-Fu cop series from writer Neil Tolkin, which has been sold to CBS. Tolkin co-wrote another cop drama for 20th TV, Blue Blood, 3 years ago. It was picked up to pilot at NBC with Brett Ratner directing and producing.
