Pilot Scoop: Fox Orders Aircraft Carrier Drama from Graham Yost, Gang Related Cop Show
In Wild Blue, executive-produced by Graham Yost (Justified) and Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad), “ER, The West Wing and Top Gun collide” in an ensemble about the working men and women on board a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier. The project promises “an upstairs/downstairs look at pressure-cooker lives of the U.S. Navy.”
Michael Dinner (Justified) will direct the pilot and serve as another EP.
Gang Related, meanwhile, follows a gang member sent in to infiltrate the San Francisco Police Department and rise through its ranks — ultimately landing on the Gang Task Force. There, he must balance his obligations to his crime family with an increasing sense of loyalty to his new “family” on the SFPD. Scott Rosenbaum (The Shield) will exec-produce with Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious), who penned the script.
