EXCLUSIVE: CBS has put in development Borrowed Time, a drama from writer Amanda Green; Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman’s Brownstone Prods.; and Warner Bros. TV, where Green and Brownstone are under overall deals.
This marks the second broadcast sale for Green and Brownstone via WBTV this season; they also have jury drama The Twelve, based on a Belgian format, at Fox with a put pilot commitment.
Written by Green, Borrowed Time follows a cop who wakes up in the body of a stranger with no memory of who she is. The search for her identity is complicated by a chilling fact: Someone is trying to kill the person whose life she is inhabiting. She prevents the murder, only to awaken in a different body with a new mystery to solve.
Amanda Green executive produces alongside Brownstone Prods’ Banks and Handelman.
Brownstone also has a put pilot commitment at ABC for Love Me, written/executive produced by Life Sentence creators Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith. Banks and Handelman are repped by UTA, Untitled and Ziffren Brittenham.
Green most recently served as co-executive producer on WBTV’s NBC drama series Manifest, after having been co-EP on the studio’s Fox drama series Lethal Weapon and NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura. She previously was a writer-producer on the first 12 seasons of NBC’s Law & Order: SVU. Green is repped by Brandy Rivers at Industry Entertainment.
