NBC has ordered a script for a procedural from 2oth Century Fox TV, based on Thomas Sniegoski’s Remy Chandler urban fantasy novels. The six-volume series is about an angel who, having grown weary of celestial warfare, chose to embrace earthly life and develop a deep appreciation for humans and their vices. The project is described as a procedural with humor, questions of faith and fate, and a very distinct partnership. Bill Chais is attached to write and exec produce. Fox-based Jonathan Levin is EP. On Sniegoski’s Remy Chandler website, the Boston private eye is described as a guy with many useful talents, including but not confined to, making himself invisible speaking any language (including the language of animals), and thought-reading.
Another Sniegoski book series, The Fallen, was adapted into a longform series at ABC Family back in 2006; it starred Paul Wesley as an affable high school kid who discovered he was an angel-human hybrid. And since a bidding war in 2006, Boom Studios’ comic book Talent, written by Christopher Golden and Sniegoski, has been set up at Universal Pictures. That four-issue miniseries follows a college professor who survives a plane crash, only to find he’s taken on the traits and talents of the crash victims. Sniegoski, is repped by attorney Adam Rosen at ONE LLP, and Donaldson Media & Consulting.
