Home, a family thriller/soap project from writer Aron Eli Coleite and Jerry Bruckheimer TV that Kevin Reilly originally developed at Fox during the 2013-2014 season, has found a new life at TNT, landing a pilot order after lengthy negotiations.
In early 2014, Home became one of the poster children for Reilly’s new development model that was looking to render the traditional broadcast pilot season obsolete. The drama was given “an off-cycle commitment for further investment towards series production,” which involved the hiring of a writing staff to work on a bible and scripts. Home did not progress to the “prototype” phase, slated for that summer, as Reilly left the network in May. Several months later, he joined Turner as head of TNT and TBS.
Written by Coleite (Heroes) and to be directed by Brad Anderson (Fringe), Home, from Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Horizon, is a dramatic thriller that delves into the secrets lingering behind the façade of a seemingly idyllic suburban family. Rose Altman couldn’t be happier: An accomplished designer with a successful business, the newly pregnant Rose is thriving in a wonderful life with her husband, Joe, a highly regarded prison psychologist, and enjoying being a stepmother to his two sons. But her image of her perfect family is shattered when she discovers long-buried secrets that threaten to destroy the very foundation of her life.
Executive producing the project are Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Coleite and Brad Anderson. KristieAnne Reed is co-executive producer.
