NBC has put in development drama Bad Medicine, based on the comic by Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir and illustrator Christopher Mitten. The project hails from Midnight, Texas co-executive producer Mark Kruger and executive producer David Janollari, T.G.I.M. Films (Atomic Blonde) and Universal TV, where David Janollari Entertainment is based.
Written by Kruger, Bad Medicine is a character-driven procedural that brings together the unlikeliest pair: a world-renowned yet recently disgraced physician and a former NYPD detective with a take-no-prisoners attitude. Together, with a select group of scientists, they lead the Global Disease Detection Unit of the CDC, the SEAL Team Six of medicine.
Kruger executive produces with Janollari and Eric Gitter via his T.G.I.M. Films banner.
Kruger recently served as consulting producer on CBS summer drama series Salvation, which was renewed for a second season, and also served as a co-executive producer on Teen Wolf and Damien.
Bad Medicine comic creators DeFilippis and Weir began their careers in television, writing on such shows as Arli$$ and Kim Possible. Mitten’s credits include Wasteland and Dark Horse’s upcoming Hellboy spinoff.
Kruger is repped by WME, Madhouse and attorney Jason Hendler. Janollari is with Del Shaw Moonves. Gitter is repped by WME & Marin Goodman.
