Conspiracy, a drama series project based on Christopher MacBride’s 2012 found footage-style indie feature The Conspiracy, has landed at NBC as a put pilot. Written and executive produced by Contagion scribe Scott Z. Burns, the TV adaptation centers on a conspiracy theorist who vanishes after a man is killed at an Occupy Wall Street protest, leaving behind his sister and an FBI agent to investigate. Also executive producing are Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin, with the company’s Daniel Pipski co-executive producing. The rights to The Conspiracy, written & directed by MacBride and produced by Lee Kim, were held and shopped by Kyle Franke and Aram Tertzakian of XYZ Films, with MacBride, Kim, Franke and Tertzakian also executive producing the TV version. (watch the movie’s official trailer below). This marks feature writer Burns’ reunion with Working Title where he developed his first project, PU-239, which subsequently went to HBO with Burns directing. His writing credits also include Side Effects, The Informant and The Bourne Ultimatum, and he was a producer on An Inconvenient Truth. Burns is with UTA, which also reps Working Title and XYZ Films, and Anonymous Content.
