Through his CBS TV Studios-based production company, NCIS: Los Angeles showrunner Shane Brennan has sold two drama projects: Freeman to CBS and Bob The Valkyrie to the CW. Brennan will executive produce both shows with Shane Brennan Prods.’ Grant Anderson for CBS TV Studios.
CBS’ Freeman, written/executive produced by Dustin Lee Abraham (CSI, How High), centers on an Oakland parole officer with a checkered past who tries to “make the bad guys good again” and keep former inmates from being sent back to prison.
The CW’s Bob The Valkyrie, written/executive produced by Matt Greenberg (1408, Ring Of Fire), focuses on a new kind of valkyrie. Every generation faces a rising tide of evil, adversary of the legendary Valkyries — three women chosen by fate to defend humanity against this evil. This generation is no different — only this time, fate accidentally chooses a male when selecting its Valkyries. Now Bob, a chauvinistic “dude-bro,” must learn to face darkness and fight evil…all while getting in touch with his feminine side.
Brennan also has The Expendables event series, based on the hit movie franchise, in the works at Fox with Sylvester Stallone executive producing. Additionally, Shane Brennan Productions and CBS Studios recently acquired the rights to New Moon, the first novel in Ian McDonald’s Luna series, for Brennan to adapt and executive produce.
Brennan is repped by Paradigm and attorney Kevin Kelly. Abraham, who spent five years on CBS/CBS Studios’ CSI, is repped by Paradigm and attorney Jared Levine. Greenberg, who co-wrote the remake of Pet Sematary for Paramount, slated to go into production soon, is repped by Paradigm, manager Shelly Browning and attorneys Jason Sloane & Jim Gilio.
