NBC is developing a new take on homeland security from director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and writer Matthew Carnahan (“Dirt”), reports Variety.
Fuqua, Carnahan and Michael De Luca will executive produce “ICE,” which will be set in the world of the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement division of Homeland Security. Universal Media Studios will produce.
Created as part of the post-9/11 homeland security overhaul, “ICE” is charged with being on the lookout for the trafficking of everything that crosses the U.S. borders, from arms, drugs and counterfeit money to weapons of mass destruction, stolen antiquities and even human slaves.
Carnahan will create the project, while Fuqua will direct. Alissa Phillips and Mary Alice Haney, who originated the project, will co-produce.
