Idra Elba starred in the original series and will executive-produce the pilot. Neil Cross, who created the original, will write and executive-produce alongside Elba. The project is cast-contingent, indicating the importance of finding an actor who can match Elba's original performance.

Crisis creator Rand Ravich will write and executive-produce with Homeland's Howard Gordon.
The one-hour procedural Rosewood also received a pilot order. The close-ended drama follows Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr., a pathologist who understands the secrets in dead bodies, but is obsessed with life. Psych's Todd Hartham will write and executive-produce.
Fox also ordered a pilot for 48 Hours 'Til Monday, a single-camera comedy from The Mindy Project's Charlie Grandy. The sitcom tells the story of a husband's struggle to not let his weekends go to hell.
