Paramount Network has put in development thriller drama I Know Who You Are, based on the 2017 Spanish limited series Sé quién eres. The project hails from The Last Ship co-creator Steven Kane, director David Semel (Star Trek: Discovery) and CBS TV Studios.
Written by Kane and directed by Semel, I Know Who You Are is a missing-person thriller that follows a morally ambiguous celebrity journalist who awakens from a car accident as a suspect in the disappearance of his own niece.
The 16-episode Spanish series, created by Pau Freixas for Telecino, premiered in January 2017 and starred Blanca Portillo, Francesc Garrido, Carles Francino, Eva Santolaria and Aida Folch. You can see a trailer below.
Kane and Semel executive produce along with Tripp Vinson (Red Dawn), Lucas Carter and Alex Coscas. This marks a collaboration between Paramount Network and CBS Studios as the two companies’ parents, Paramount and CBS, are negotiating a merger.
Kane co-created with Hank Steinberg The Last Ship and has served as writer, director and executive producer since the series launch in 2014. He is sole showrunner of the series, which is going in to its fifth season on TNT. His credits also include writer and co-executive producer on TNT’s The Closer and co-executive producer on American Dad.
Semel is a prolific TV director who was recently tapped to direct the pilot for CBS’ legal drama Main Justice. He previously directed pilots for such CBS series as Person of Interest, Madam Secretary, Code Black, Pure Genius, and CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery, as well as pilots for Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle and the CW’s Legends. He also was an executive producer on Amazon’s Goliath and directed episodes of The Strain, among others.
