Missing-Persons Drama ‘Found’ From Nkechi Okoro Carroll & Berlanti Productions Lands NBC Pilot Order
NBC has handed a pilot order to Found, a one-hour missing-persons drama from the All American team of showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll and executive producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. The project hails from Berlanti Productions, Carroll’s Rock My Soul Productions and Warner Bros. TV, where Berlanti and Carroll are under overall deals.
Found previously was set at ABC, where it received a put pilot commitment in 2019.
Written and executive produced by Carroll, Found centers on the premise that in any given year, more than 600,000 people are reported missing in the U.S. More than half that number are people of color that the country seems to forget about. In Found, a public relations specialist — who once was one of those forgotten ones herself — and her crisis-management team now make sure there is always someone looking out for the forgotten missing people. But unbeknownst to anyone, this everyday hero is hiding a chilling secret of her own.
