Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) is set to direct ABC‘s drama pilot Warriors, from Chris Keyser, Mandeville and ABC Studios. It follows the best and brightest of active duty military doctors and nurses as they practice trailblazing medicine on critically wounded warriors returning home from Afghanistan, on military families and veterans, as well as administering to Washington’s government elite. This is the third consecutive year on ABC drama pilot duty for Campbell who helmed the pilot for the Sony-produced series Last Resort in 2012 and the ABC Studio pilot Reckless last year.
Michael Offer, who directed multiple episodes of Last Resort, will helm the ABC/ABC Studios drama pilot, How To Get Away With Murder, written by Peter Nowalk and produced by Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. The sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller centers on ambitious law students and their brilliant and mysterious criminal defense professor who become entangled in a murder plot. This marks the U.S. pilot directing debut for the Australian helmer, repped by ICM Partners and Circle of Confusion.
