Gideon Raff, Howard Gordon, and Alex Gansa
Hot on the heels of their sweep at the Emmys, Homeland producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa have sold an FBI drama to CBS, TVGuide.com has learned.
Anatomy of Violence — inspired by the soon-to-be-published non-fiction title The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime by Adrian Raine — follows a female FBI agent who starts working with a mysterious psychiatrist with whom she shares a past connection.
Modern Family, Homeland top Emmy awards
The project, executive-produced and written by the Homeland duo, has been given a pilot-production commitment, meaning that the network would have to pay a sizable fee should they not make the pilot.
At the 2012 Emmys, Homeland collected six awards, including Outstanding Writing for a Drama series for Gordon and Gansa and Outstanding Drama Series, the first for a Showtime series.
