EXCLUSIVE: NBC‘s The Blacklist, a drama about a criminal working with the FBI from Sony Pictures TV and Davis Entertainment, is among the hottest new series this fall. Now NBC, Sony and Davis Entertainment are teaming for another hourlong project about a criminal, this time set at the CIA. Written by feature writer Greg Poirier (National Treasure 2), Wolfe, which has received a script commitment with penalty, is described as a tongue-in-cheek high–stakes show that sends up the spy genre. It centers on an enterprising criminal who discovers the CIA’s biggest agent, Westley Wolfe, is actually a fake, an invented hero meant to distract the public from their recent failures. The criminal assumes the spy’s identity and steps into his sexy world-travelling life. The CIA can’t out him or else they’d be outing themselves. Poirier and Davis Entertainment’s John Davis and John Fox executive produce. In TV, Poirier, repped by WME and Anonymous Content, previously created the ABC thriller drama Missing starring Ashley Judd. Davis Entertainment has two new series on the NBC fall schedule, The Blacklist and Ironside.
